People let me tell ya - Great Moment with Mr. Lincoln is a must!
This attraction originally debuted at the 1964 New York World’s Fair where the technology blew everyone away. Today, we’re jaded, we’ve seen it all, we’re not so easily impressed with a robot that looks like our 16th President. Well, set all that aside and this is still a fabulous, interesting, nostalgic experience. After our visit last fall, my mom even said it was her favorite attraction in Disneyland!
I recently was chatting with a Cast Member at the Opera House and asking why they were bumping Ole Abe for movie previews from time to time now. Long story short, people aren’t going and they are testing out new ways to use the space.
I know the Lincoln attraction’s not flashy - it’s no Space Mountain, it’s not in Galaxy’s Edge - and he’s easy to forget as he quietly sits in the darkened theater off the beaten path, waiting for someone to talk to.
So this post is my reminder to you, stop by and check it out! And if you do and you send me a photo of you there, I’ll send you a free “I ❤️ Walt” sticker* because Walt loved Abe too.
