    Wow. I actually agree with Mr Liver. Truth be told though, Frontierland actually represents the entire opening of the West, from the pioneering days of Davy Crockett (1820's - 30's) right through the 1880's Wild West period of Big Thunder. Lincoln would fit just fine in there somewhere, and, as has been noted before, Frontierland has plenty of room.

    Re: Food for thought about the Steve Martin movie in the Opera House

    I'd like to see Lincoln come back, and barring that, something new! It's not like the movie is so good you want to see it again and again. It's hard to stay awake as you watch it for the first time! I stopped by DL Thursday afternoon for a couple of hours on the way home from surfing (surf was bigger at Lake Tahoe than Doheny on Thursday), and found the park crowded. Long lines, but it was easy to walk around. When DL's really crowded, you feel like you're in a sardine can. I'm going back on Monday with the wife and her nurse friends from the night shift at the Loma Linda cardiac ward. I did get to the Innoventions for the first time. I really enjoyed the enthusiastic cast member (who's cousin won a Gold medal in soccer this week) who gave a spiel about the exhibit. The really cool part of the exhibit was the digital panel that resembled water when you touched it, as well as the digital book/table.

    Why not have them alternate? Lincoln is behind the screen, as it is, so why not just have the Lincoln show on the hour and half hour, and play the 50th movie (or some other movie) at the 15 and 45?

    It's kinda impractical.

    Well, you'd have to set up two lines of sorts to hold guests wanting to see each show. And besides, I don't think Disney have ever done anything like that before.

    When was the last time you saw anyone watching Mr. Lincoln, at least in Anaheim? You can bet that I'd be flooded with memories of my youth if it ever returned.
    As for the "Steve from Garden Grove" movie, it was cute the first time I saw it, okay the second and third times, and now it's only an excuse to get out of the heat as far as I am concerned.

    Hm... maybe Mr. Lincoln should be seasonal? Maybe a little bit like Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion or Holiday Small World, only Mr. Lincoln shows up around Fourth of July and the patriotic summer months? I don't know, just an idea. That way, the Ballroom can be fully utilized as a movie theatre during the off season.

    Re: Food for thought about the Steve Martin movie in the Opera House

    I may be the only one, but everytime I go to the parks, I watch the "First 50 Magical Years"...and everytime, I'm not embarassed to say, I sob like a little kid. I don't know why it gets me so much. Probably all the nostalgia and all the stuff with families. It just makes me think of all the amazing things I did there with my dad who has been gone for just over 4 years now. I would like to see Lincoln back, but at the same time I will hate to see the Steve Martin movie go.
