Well my birthday is on October 1 the same day that Walt Disney World opened. Does anyone else have a birthday when an attraction or park opened?

Actually, even though the Magic Kingdom opened on Oct. 1, its official dedication was on Oct. 25... which is my birthday. So I can (sort of) claim the same birthday as Walt Disney World, too.

As A September baby in a "seasonal" park area, I don't know of any that opened the DAY I was born. But Cedar Point's Blue Streak opened in 1964. It's a ride I've been on multiple times and enjoy, so I'll take that.

My birthday is April 22md, and the new Texas Giant opened on that day this year. I went to school while my dad went and rode the Giant.

My brother was born on July 17th, the opening day of Disneyland...I've always been so jealous!

Only notable thing on my B-Day was this year, July 8th was the launch of the final space shuttle. I thought that was pretty cool.

So far nothing for Nov. 5th. Guess I'll have to open my own park! ;)

Well, Kraken opened on my fourth birthday (June 1st, 2000), so I guess I share a birthday with Dominick D, not just Morgan Freeman. ;)
