    Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

    I really hope they save this classic attraction. It's one of my favorite childhood memories from Dland!

    Re: Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

    I would love to see this attraction returned to the Opera House, preferably complete with the "Walt Disney Story" beforehand like it used to be.

    Of course, I'm 50 years old and out of touch with the times. Word has it that plans are already being made for "Great Moments With Orlando Bloom", since today's youngsters have little or no concept of Honest Abe.

    ROFL! That was hilarious! Maybe Kiera Knightly will become part of the Storybook Canal Boats crew?

    LOL

    Re: Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

    I must've missed something - is 'Great Moments' in danger of being axed?

    The 50th movie was certainly fun to watch, but given that I don't get there very often, it would have been nice to see this groundbreaking attraction. It should certainly have SOME place in the park. As one of the first major audio-animatronic humans, it deserves pride of place in Disneyland. A Main Street attraction showcasing its place in Disney history would be ideal if they don't return the show as it was.

    Alternatively, a "tune-up" using new Bloom/Sparrow technology would be rather grand.

    Well, there's been no "official" word of it being axed, but there are rumors circulating that it's either not going to come back until the summer of '07, or not at all. I guess some big execs. are wanting to save some money and they're eyeing "...Mr. Lincoln" as a way of saving some. How, I don't know. I got the info. from MousePlanet.

    It should be saved. However they should get rid of that stupid 3D sound crap. Bring back the classic.
    Check out my new Disney Blog here. What it lacks in quality it makes up with... Well, nothing I guess.

    Voted I don't care. I'm not hot to trot on Lincoln but I'd rather Lincoln than a shuttered room.

    Hear, hear!

    I want the one that gave me a lump in my throat not the more recent one that made me just shake my head and wonder why people feel the need to fix that which is not broken.

    Re: Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

    Since I never saw the original show without all the "3D sound crap" I can't comment on that. But as to the most recent show, I'd love to have it back! It was one of my favorite attractions.
    How much longer? Are we there yet? Why aren't we there yet?

    Keep Steve Martin at the opera House, and build a bigger better Lincoln inside of Innoventions.

    There, problem solved.


    This has been a Filmways presentation dahling.

    Re: Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln

    It would be cool if they could use the AA in a new show. Perhaps some other historyical figures. Maybe Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, or Mark Twain.

    If they wanted to break the turn of the century feel, maybe some 20th century figures. MKL Jr., Babe Ruth, and what would be really is a Walt (but apparently that's taboo or something, I've never heard any official story behind that).

    And it could be hosted by a Steve Martin AA!!!!
