    One Year left until we "Supposedly" get Mr. Lincoln back

    Well, the 18 month long celebration is 10 months from being over leaving the question "Will they bring back Mr. Lincoln?". The 50 Magical Years exhibit is viewed as a temporary attraction that was only slated for the celebration itself. No one really knows if Mr. Lincoln will come back seeing as it is not an inspiration or exciting to our newer generation of audience today. Who knows, maybe they will bring back, maybe "Walt: One Man's Dream" in Florida will close and return Walt's original office back to our Main Street. One thing I do know is that they said they will bring it back as soon as the celebration is over but that can also be overlooked seeing as Walt's office was said to return after the 100th celebration was over but was never retrieved. It's pretty much 50/50 right now, but I hope one of Walt's favorite attractions returns unharmed and stays for good.

    I would hope they would bring it back.

    I still say, let's make the 50th film into a DVD. I mean, it's just a film anyway, right? Just toss it onto a DVD, through in a few interviews and an exibit photo gallery for good measure, instant DVD!

    Yeah.

    Anyway, I do hope they bring back Lincoln, although especially under the new management I do think it will come back. After all, they went out of their way to say that Lincoln would return, why break that promise? How long Lincoln will stay there after his return is a question though. We'll just have to see what happens.

    Well, you have to think about this.

    Walt's office is still there. It's just right behind those displays. All they have to do when it's over, is take away those walls and exhibits and voila, his office. Mr. Lincoln is also still there. He's just behind those curtains. I mean, you look at the top of the theatre and it still has the Golden American Eagle symbol. If they expected to take Mr. Lincoln out, wouldn't they have taken that symbol out and replaced it with, I don't know...a Disney "D" or Tinker Bell, or something along those lines, during those few months the Opera House was closed? It wouldn't make any sense and not ideal to have a whole stage and theatre where they only use two feet of it for the film screen.

    I truly believe that Mr. Lincoln will return. Not only is it essential to Disneyland/world history (The first human Audio-Animatronic), but it's also one of Walt's favorite historical figures.

    I hope they bring Mr. Lincoln back. That was one of my daughter's favorite things at Disneyland! She shares her birthday with Abe and thus loves all things Abe-related.

    I'm still expecting the chance they bring Mr. Lincoln back is somewhere between "slim" and "none".

    Re: One Year left until we "Supposedly" get Mr. Lincoln back

    It would be terrible to not have Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln back at the Good Ol Opera House. It has been one of my long standing traditions to go to that attraction before leaving Disneyland. Even though I hear the same speech over and over again, it is a nice reminder of how proud I am to live in a country that embraces democracy and freedom to express ourselves without fear.

    Personally, the present show featuring the makings/beginings of Disneyland is nice the first time, but hardly worth repeating (considering most of the people who do come to disneyland know its history already). Basically the repeatability factor is just not there, hence it is only running for the 50th anniversary year.

    Now Lincoln on the other hand is someone that Walt Disney personally looked up to and IMHO demands great respect. I feel that in sharing that common interest that I too am touched with a little bit of Disney magic.

    ok.....carry on.....

    I just hope he comes back at least for a little while so that I can see the show once.

    I don't remember it at all, I don't think my mother ever took me to see it as a child.

    Kinda like how I didn't discover the Tiki Room until my teens

    That's right. I, pineapplewhipaddict, was dole whip deprived.

    Er, sorry.

    Yeah, bring back Abe, at least for a little while

    I thought the Abe that was up there before the 50th exhibit/film was a newer generation animatronic and not the original anymore? I'm not sure, but I thought I had read that somewhere? If he is, then maybe theyre actually showing the real original at the Henry Ford Museum and not the one that may or may not be hiding behind that curtain.

    ^ they should have pulled this switch at Ford's Theatre so that Mr. Lincoln could've finished out his Presidency and his life naturally....
