Yeah, preload is all I need to know about this.
Old People

It's Ming China. They don't mention any exact dates, but the dialog during the preload scene implies that they've traveled back to the mid-fifteenth century. Bill and Ted are also shown building sections of the Great Wall, which would further support the Ming period hypothesis.
Oh wait, shit, I should have watched further. Not long after, they introduce Kublai Khan and Marco Polo, dating the adventure to somewhere between 1291-1295... yet failing to account for the preponderance of Ming evidence presented earlier.

I'm not even gonna touch the Manchurians or the Chinese takeout joint.

Also, how do the thirteenth (or fifteenth) century Chinamen know about photo booths? And how did Bill manage to transform that sedge hat into a takeout container? I slowed that segment down and examined it frame-by-frame, and I still don't understand what's going on.

yea, thus the ambiguous description.

Also, dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature, Asian American please.

This is a cartoon. For kids.

My kids will know their dynasties, damnit.
