    I was just thinking about this same thing the other day.

    Isn't the Donald and Steve show supposed to be long gone already?
    I hope Mr Lincoln returns as well as Mr Disney's office that I believe is still on display in Florida.

    Give them time. It'll take them awhile to refurb the attraction to make it relevant to today's youth. Soon though, The 50th movie will be gone and "Rappin' with the Penny Dude" will be open.

    Granted I am no Steve Martin fan, personally I think both shows were somewhat out of context on Main Street USA. I hope they bring it back, but I would love to see it moved to Frontierland, in a more appropriate time period. Sure you can say... well there is a Steam train right next to a historic Opera House... but then one of the MS Cars drives by and ruins that effect.

    You should be able to find out closures closer to the dates. If they do Nightmare before Christmas overlay on HM...that will possibly be down. As for Lincoln, good question.......

    Lincoln's coming back in October. Everyone can kindly stop whining about it now and can return to their old habit of waxing rhapsodic about the show without, you know, ever going in.

    Well, they could jazz it up with a presentation of "Our American Cousin"

    The 50 yEARS Donald and cast member Steve show has apparently proven so popular that Disney extended it's stay. Disney said that Lincoln would be removed temporarily for the DL aniversary production. I think that if they bring back Lincoln, a new promotion gimmick will need to be used in order to bolster interest.

    I loved the new audio 3-D / animatronic / film show. But, audiences were rather lean. I think most people either didn't realize it was there, or didn't give the audio 3-D a chance, or simply plowed past on their way to the major lands and e-ticket rides. Hope Abe comes back. I honestly do. But, don't be surprised that if he does - it will likely be something fresh, more advanced and exciting.

    Count me as one of them. As is, I find the 50th exhibit much more entertaining.
