    Unless I'm mistaken, the Lincoln at Disneyland didn't read the Gettysburg Address -until- the renovation a couple of years ago. Before that, I believe it was a mish-mash of Lincoln speeches. (I actually liked the mish-mash better.)

    I feel like I am standing alone when I say that Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln was a fantastic and very unique exhibit to the park. While it didn't exceed 45 mph, proceed into a loop-the-loop, and snap your picture at the end, it gave some insight into not only our greatest president of all time, but to the man responsible for all of our fun, Walt himself.
    Should this exhibit not return following the 50th celebrations, it will be sadly missed by many. Peevs Ike Poop to name a few.

    It's hard to beat the sound of Paul Frees performing the introductory narration, the voice of Royal Dano as Lincoln reciting the wonderfully patriotic compilation (or mish-mash as it was called) of Lincoln speeches, and the climactic rendering of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." It was plain and simple, yet powerful and emotional. There was really no need for all the new-fangled acoustic trickery.

    I wouldn't mind it if Lincoln returns in its present form, but I'd much rather it comes back refurbished to its original presentation. Either way, I just hope it makes it back after the 50th.
    The exit doors to your left are now open, and have fun the rest of your day in Disneyland.

    I hope it does come back in it's current form. I LOVE the rendition of "Battle Hymn Of The Republic" But I think I like it most of all because one of my verry own great aunts wrote the song.

    Yeah, you are right it wasn't the full gettysberg address...

    But the invasion of enimys domestic, and the statement against fear really made that monologue excellent as it built... It was brilliant, and I miss it... Particularly in our post 9/11 world.

    You are definetly not alone. I love this attraction. I visit it every time I go to Disneyland. I do miss the old version. Particularly the "Two Brothers" song. If they could somehow tie in that song into the current show, I would be happy. I've spoken to three different CMs there who have assured me that the show WILL retrun after the 18 month celebration.

    I love this show...just because I had the priviledge of working it in summer of 2001.. I never got to see the original, but I heard great things about it, but Mr. Lincoln is an original, just like 'the Enchanted Tiki Room'..these are Walt Disney's shows which can't be taken away!! This show will be back after the 50th exhibit!!
    'When hinges creek in doorless chambers..and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls..whenever candlelights flicker..where the air is deathly still..That is the time when ghosts are present, practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.'

    This is a Walt Inspired original Type show... (which i will miss since i am only there for the 50th....) Which should remain in operation.... Now if they want to spend ons of cash by moving to to DCA.... who will object.... Everyone.... It needs to not get the COP treatment..... and remain at the park....

    I hope it reminas and reopens at the park after the 50th....

    I have spoken to people at Imagineering. They have told me that Mr. Lincoln will return after the 50th anniversary. It makes no sense to keep a 50th anniversary exhibit inside of a building after 2005.

    I wouldn't believe it until I saw it ... the sign outside of Rocket Rods said it would return too and ... well ... I don't think I need to finish.

    True, but Mr. Lincoln did not break down daily because he was inadequately funded
    and not designed for the PeopleMover track

    Evil one.

    I wasn't fond of Mr Lincoln but I hope they do return him. My neices still haven't seen it and I think they would get a kick out of the show

After all, if they weren't trying to get lincoln out - why not put the exhibit in Innoventions or put it in the Starcade? There are a lot of other places they could have put it, but they want Lincoln out.

    And really that's a good thing. I don't understand why anyone would want LincolnVision 3D to come back. I'd much rather have a Disneyland Museum exhibit in that space.
    I think you're right. Lets look at "One Man's Dream" at DCA, or the Walts 100th Exibit at MGM Studios. All slated to be there for 16 months, but still there YEARS later. The facts are that it takes lots of money to do refit attractions, and Lincoln wasn't getting very good counts. I'm sure that "The first 50 Magical Years" will get large counts, and not just for the 16 months. When it comes time to decide if it will stay or go, the suits will say:"Why would we spend hundreds of thousands to refit this back to a less popular attraction than it is now?" Unfortunate, but true.
