    "Mr. Lincoln's" fate more tenuous than originally thought...

    From this site comes the following:

    "...Lincoln's future actually seems to be on a bit of a tightrope and this may actually create an opportunity for your opinion to have an impact. Apparently a budget has been created for returning Mr. Lincoln to the theater for summer 2007. However, no commitment to actually spend that money and do the project has been made. The existence of the budget is no guarantee of it happening, but without a budget it certainly couldn't. So, when the 50th Anniversary comes to an end at the end of the month and Steve Martin is still showing at the Opera House, if you feel strongly about Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln returning, be sure to stop in at City Hall and say so.

    This may be one of the few situations where plans are uncertain enough that sufficient guest comment could sway the ultimate outcome. ..."

    Yeah, I read that on MP.
    I personally won't miss Lincoln AT ALL

    Meh, I don't mind if he doesn't come back. I would like to see something new go into the theater.

    That wonderful space could be used for something so much better than that tired, relic.

    And before anyone attacks me for saying that, I saw the attraction at the NY World's Fair in "64 and thought it was astonishing and loved it for several more years at DL.

    They should keep the Lincoln AA, maybe move it to Disney Gallery or create a new show with a presidential debate ala Hall of Presidents in Magic Kingdom.

    Put back Walt's heartfelt original Lincoln show, or move on. The replacements (since the early 80's) have all been dreadful by comparison.

    In the meantime, why not screen the new version of Walt-centric "One Man's Dream" with Julie Andrews replacing Eisner (as at WDW)? All that would cost them is two prints and a new sign. - - And bring back Walt's office to go with it.

    As cool as Lincoln is (and was), I think it's just about time for something new to move into there. I do think it needs to be something about America (Main St USA after all) and something quite patriotic as Walt was a very patriotic person himself. I do think we need to stick with the theme of the "land".

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I want to see it back.


    It just gives Disney another reason to install another retail store. That's the last thing we need at Disneyland.

    I say leave the Steve Martin movie in there, it's a cool movie to show people who don't know much about Disneyland so they actually learn a thing or two. I could care less about Lincoln.

    I would vote for putting something else in, if I had confidence that Disney had the vision and showmanship to put in a worthy replacement.

    From what I've seen from them in the last ten years, they don't.

    Someone start a petition to make Mr. Lincoln's AA the next hatbox ghost!

    I like this idea. Only good thing about going to see Lincoln was to be in a nicely air-conditioned theatre with comfortable seating. One could take a nice snooze in there. I wouldn't miss it at all if it was gone for good.

    I would like to see it back, however if it does go, I am in favor of either keeping the current film or making another all about Walt and Disneyland... Something to spark our memories of things past and hope for things future. I think Walt would like that.

    Lincoln is in rehab hell, too many redos have made him a dog. Put in a Walt AA and be done with it.
