When I was reading the news today in MiceChat I came across this article, Disneymaniacs make a faithful following that dramaqueen posted. In it Marty Sklar talked about Disneymaniacs which pretty much means all of us on these message boards.Sklar said that although Disneyland is a national treasure, Walt Disney never envisioned it as a museum where things would never change.So this would mean that Mr. Lincoln is still coming back, no? What do you think? What show will it be? Will it be a new one?Sklar wants to assure Disneymaniacs that the animatronic version of Abraham Lincoln that has been temporarily retired to make room for the new "Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years" presentation, will return following the 18-month celebration.
The fact that a Disneyland legend such as Sklar even knew that Disneymaniacs were worried about Mr. Lincoln's eviction is a testament to the growing influence they have on Disneyland policy -- something that only became possible with the emergence of the Internet.
Now tens of thousands of Disneymaniacs communicate regularly in Web forums about topics such as their annoyance over a burned out light bulb on Main Street to alleged attempts by Disneyland to retire old Abe.
