    Re: opera house refurb

    That would be smart, maybe the exit area will be a mini disney gallery section.
    Maybe there is more space in that row that can be dedicated to the Disney Gallery.

    Re: opera house refurb

    Lincoln was there the whole time, all they had to do was remove the 50th exhibet stuff and add in a loop.

    They should replace the old Lincoln AA with ASIMO. Just dress up ASIMO in a tux and a stove pipe hat and there you go.

    Kind of like I said in Post #2 of this very thread.

    This rehab is to replace the carpet in the lobby and the theater. Not much else. And definitely no Abe Lincoln.

    The show will return with the 50th film and 50th exhibits intact and there for quite awhile. Management says there is no funding to replace the show or bring back Mr. Lincoln any time during fiscal year 2008.

    I just had I idea. Why don't they keep the 50 Magical Years, but add on something at the end a bit like:

    "And now, a presentation of classic Disney.... Here is Abraham Lincoln". Then the film screen then rises & you see Mr. Lincoln. And precede to just his speech. Then play the whole musical score thingy, & Steve Martin says bye bye!

    Lincoln can stay gone. Really. He can be the new Queen in Snow white.

    I liked the 50th exhibit AND the show. A lot. I was urged in by a VERY nice cast member standing outside. "Come in, come in! It's got Steve Maaartttiiin! -waves treat-"

    I think they need to improve the Abe show.Bring in other historical figures maybe JFK and MLK.I seem to remember the speech is a bit boring.

    You're way late. I already suggested a Ticket Booth for the lobby.

    I'm probably in the minority on this one, but I think it would be neat to see a Ben Franklin AA in the show somehow.

    Can anyone explain this "fly" thing please. My first DL visit was in 2005, so I never saw Lincoln.

    I never saw the "updated" version, but from what I remember reading guests were asked to put headphones on or something so that it would seem like the experience was truly all around you. A lot of people got annoyed with the fact that you could actually hear flies buzzing around near your ears.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.
