    The steve martin thing is unwatchable!!! Corny Corny Corny!!!

    I like Steve Martin, I used to love him but his current direction of movies (Pink Panther, Cheaper by the Dozen) just make a mockery of his previous career and I've read a lot about how arrogant he is so it ruins it for me. I like AA and I think Lincoln should be shown in every school. Not every ride needs to be a Pixar movie some can leave you a litte better than when you came in.

    I completely agree!
    Abe, although a DL classic, is a thing of the past.
    We used to see it so often (to warm up on chilly winter nights) -
    I think the 50th thing should definitely retire after this year, however
    I think Abe needs a definite makeover or complete axe and something
    new! Steve is ok, and I do agree with others that he is corny... but
    that was how this 50th celebration video was supposed to be - so blame
    the writers, not Steve himself!

    Just think of the possibilities - Eticket in it's place!!!

    Hmm... well, what if they replace the Abe Lincoln AA with a sophisticated new Mike Waszowski AA? Then they could have Sulley play Jefferson Davis, and whenever he takes another state away from the Union, Mike could sing:

    "Put that thing back where it came from or so help me...."

    Hey, think about it. It could work.

    That was good, honey!

    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!

    The Steve/Donald movie is definitely nice for the 50th, And here's for starting a request that DL place it on DVD along with other video footage of the actual 50th Celebration!!!!!

    But within 6 months to a year after the 50th Celebration officially ends,
    it will nice to have Lincoln back (the pre fly, pre haircut version). However, IF they were to bring back the original Lincoln show, and add
    a Steve Martin audio animatronic, acting as the interviewer to Lincoln,
    I say Do It!!!

    I like the "50th anniversary" DVD as well.

    Then again, they still have that long delayed Disneyland DVD that was supposed to come out last year...

    Re: Steve Martin

    Sounds like a plan to me, E./J.!! Or maybe we could re-program that AA from Duff Gardens that orated: "Four Score and seven beers ago...". Honestly, the possibilities are limitless. If Great Moments were a president (and a sexy lady), it would be great moment's with Baberham Lincoln.

    Anyway, I had typed other stuff earlier, but got distracted, so I'll include it here for the more serious MCers today:


    Everyone has some great ideas thus far, and I guess my opinion is really a simple one:

    It is the Walt Disney Story feauturing Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. I cannot see why they can't just keep some of the 50th displays in the pre-show area, maybe even keep the Steve Martin film on the smaller screen or something.

    Also, it would cost more money (which should or should not be alocated), but why not synthesize things? Couldn't they modify the Steve film and use it as a shortened pre-show. Lincoln could be used to demonstrate audio-animatronics, so he'd still be historical, but in a more post-modern setting. However, if it's all about "the show," I'm cool with them bringing back the headphones refurbishment (yes A., it's NOT an overlay!!!)

    Re: Steve Martin

    I feel as I do about every movie-dependent attraction: sure it's nice, but the main reason to have movie-dependent attractions is that they should be easy to change them more frequently. So, after 50th is over, send it on to Tokyo or something, and put something new (or old) into the building.
    Having an AP-dependent guest base does require updates of movie-dependent attractions, which tend to go stale after the second viewing. Otherwise, these attractions don't get attended, making the rest of the park more crowded.

    Re: Steve Martin

    As much as I love watching this new movie with Steve Martin and Donald Duck, I do think they should bring something new to pay homage to old Disney classic attractions and shows that are now resting comfortably in Yesterland. Walt Disney said himself that Disneyland would always be changing as long as there was imagination, so why do you guys think that he'd still have Abe in the Opera House after 50 years? I believe it's time for something new, and again...showing old interviews and old videos of how Disneyland once was would be awesome to see. They could rotate videos every year or something like that, one video dedicated for each land possibly?

    Eh...just my two cents.

    I agree. Show more movies about attractions past, present and future. I want to see stuff like how they came up with the idea, constuction photos, interviews with Imagineers and CM's who were the opening crew for the attraction. I would gladly go in and see these shows.

    Re: Steve Martin

    I would hate to see a show featuring an AA be replaced by a movie. Isn't that one of the major complaints about Golden Dreams? It's just a movie when it could have been so much more.
