    Smile Updated ‘Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln’ Will Return to Disneyland Later This Year

    25 February 2009
    Updated ‘Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln’ Will Return to Disneyland Later This Year

    Disney Gallery Will Find a New Home
    In the Current ‘Bank of Main Street’

    Hiatus for ‘Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years’
    Begins March 16 as Main Street Opera House Prepares
    For ‘Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln’ Homecoming

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (February 25, 2009) – A longtime favorite of Disneyland guests will return as “The Disneyland Story, featuring Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln,” an enhanced version of the show which appeared, in various forms, in the Main Street Opera House at Disneyland park from 1966 through 2004 . The attraction will reopen later this year in celebration of the 200th anniversary year of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.

    The current Opera House presentation, “Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years,” will go on hiatus beginning Monday, March 16, in preparation for the new “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” show. When the updated “Disneyland Story, featuring Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” opens later this year, “Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years” will be presented as part of the “Disneyland Story” display of art, models and mementoes in the Opera House lobby.

    Also planned for fall 2009 is a prominent new home on Main Street, U.S.A., for The Disney Gallery. Formerly located above Pirates of the Caribbean in New Orleans Square, The Disney Gallery houses treasured Disney artwork and collectibles representing creative efforts from throughout The Walt Disney Company. A frequently changing exhibit area often includes never-before-displayed art. The Disney Gallery’s new home will be in the Bank of Main Street building, located next door to the Main Street Opera House and currently serving as the headquarters for Disneyland Resort Annual Passport processing. The Bank will continue to operate as an Annual Passport center until mid-summer 2009. After that, Annual Passport processing will move to the Plaza Pavilion, near the entrance to Adventureland.

    The original “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” was created by Walt Disney and his Imagineers for the State of Illinois Pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair and featured the world’s first fully animated human Audio-Animatronics figure, built by Walt Disney Imagineering. The show, made its Disneyland debut in the Main Street Opera House on July 18, 1965.

    I am glad that the Disney Gallery is returning. I always liked Mr. Lincoln.
    I do hope the new show is as good or better than the older ones.

    This sounds about right. Main Street will be a good home for the Gallery, nobody will have to take an elevator or go upstairs to view the exhibets, it's right at the park entrance, and the Disney story pre show to Lincoln is next door.

    OK, I know this is uncool to say but is that not the best name for a Disneyland Adult Film: Great Moments With Mr Lincoln. (Oh please don't ban me!... thats as bad as I get)

    Thanks for the news. It's going to be great to see Mr. Lincoln and The Gallery (albeit in a different location) again.

    Sing along, everyone!

    Hail to the Chief we have chosen for the nation,
    Hail to the Chief! We salute him, one and all.
    Hail to the Chief, as we pledge cooperation
    In proud fulfillment of a great, noble call.



    Glad the Gallery is finding a new home, and Lincoln is finding his old one.
    Awsome.

    I wonder if it'll include the rumored Barack Obama animatronic.

    I agree, I think the AP center was a good "bank-like" thing to have there. It wasn't that much of a stretch to imagine it as a bank on Main Street, with the teller windows and such.

    Overall though, I am happy to see these attraction return.

    Yeah, why not put the gallery in the Pavilion and leave the AP Center where it is? At least thematically it works a bit better.
