Description And Comments

A warm and well-presented remembrance of the man who started it all. Well worth seeing; especially touching for those old enough to remember Walt Disney himself. The attraction lobby consists of a museum of Disney memorabilia. Especially interesting are rotating Disney Gallery displays of concept artwork and historical artifacts, most recently featuring featuring concept art from the early days of Disneyland, including formative sketches by Disney legends like John Hench, Sam McKim, and Harper Goff. A short film starring comedian (and former Disneyland cast member) Steve Martin and Donald Duck, originally created to celebrate the park's 50th anniversary in 2005, screens in the lobby as a preshow.

Beyond the Disney memorabilia, guests are admitted to a large theater where Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is presented. A patriotic performance, Great Moments stars an extremely lifelike and sophisticated audio-animatronic Abe Lincoln delivering an amalgamation of his notable speeches (though the over-familiar Gettysburg Address is not recited in full) as originally recorded by Royal Dano for the 1964 World's Fair. Lincoln's upgraded head is stunningly emotive, capable of wrinkling his brow and pursing his lips with unrivaled realism. New surround sound effects and songs borrowed from Epcot's American Adventure add to this brief but inspiring biography of America's 16th president.

Touring Tips

You usually do not have to wait long for this show, so see it during the busy times of day when lines are long elsewhere or as you are leaving the park. Sit up close to best see the detail on the Lincoln figure, or a few rows back for a more comfortable view of the screen.
