  • [Chat] Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln's Return

    So, with Mr. Lincoln returning next month. What are your predictions on how Opening day is going to turn out?

    I was thinking the possibility of a line being formed outside the Opera House since the lobby would be packed.

    I was also thinking they might do a re-opening ceremony for Lincoln.

    What are your thoughts?

    The theater will be pretty full I think on opening week. Then as the months go on, crowd turnout will dwindle. Then after a year or two of poor attendance, it will close. Just like the time before, and the time before that...

            ride, show, attraction, yeah i wasn't thinking

            and yes it was a bad nightmare
            but it was basically a reenactment of the assassination

            and both me and lincoln died thanks to john wilkes booth

              You know? I actually had a dream like that. Only it was the alteration of it.

              I was with Lincoln watching the show when I saw John WIlkes coming up to us.

              I promptly aimed my two shot guns at him and he said "Oh s##t!" before I shot him. LOL

                  Honestly, Lincoln will get a warm welcome from initial crowds and the media. But it will most likely not mean crowds and long lines.

                  The last big Lincoln update only saw crowds for the first couple of shows. and then larger than normal attendance for a few days.

                  Lincoln has been gone since before the 50th anniversary, so there may be a bit of extra pent up demand, but this is not an attraction that marketing can do much with ("Lincoln as you've seen him before, only at Disneyland' )

                  It will be VERY nice to have him back where he belongs, but don't expect swarms of people.

                  Kudos to Disneyland for bringing back an attraction that they know costs them more to run than it bring them. Doing this proves that there are still people in the Disney company who care about theme, quality, and history.

                  I'm looking forward to seeing Abe again, even if he does get overshadowed by Captain EO.

                      Next Month. I think December 17th is the date. Well, it'll be before Christmas Eve.

                          I don't think Lincoln is at the top of the list of scary rides, but it does have it's moments. Pooh ride is most scary, since drug use should scare people, followed by Small World, and then, of course, the only ride that dares to trap you in a room with birds directly over your head, Tiki Room.

                            I fully ageed with Nautilus

                            This show was for Lincoln 200th Birthday last Feb.
                            (Disney mess up!)

                            And it's going be the same old show.......
                            (Disney mess up again!)

                            I think it would been mush better adding two other
                            U.S.President's along
                            with Mr. Lincoln to make the Show more interesting!
                            And that what Tony B wanted in first place
                            (Disney mess 3rd time)........

                            I love to see all the U.S.President's at Disneyland ,
                            like the hall of President's at Walt Disney Word !

                              Lincoln was my mother's favourite attraction, on a trip we made to California over 20 years ago. So we are more jazzed then most people about seeing the new version, on our upcoming trip. And I always love state of the art AAs.

                                  No, its actually not going to be the "same old show". If you would have gone to the presentation about the return of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln at the D23 Expo you would know that theres more.

                                      I'm glad they're putting something educational in. Not everything has to have speed, jerking motion or a pop-movie tie-in. Disneyland has always been a multifaceted entertainment complex. If you all you want is vertigo, adrenaline and nausea go to Magic Mountain instead.

                                        Oh. Go ahead and tell them.

                                        At the end they're going to have a Captain EO AA rise out of the stage and Lincoln is going to start dancing like they did in Thriller.
