The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is a Disneyland attraction that is full of history. This attraction blends the history of Disneyland with the story of America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln.
The first portion of this attraction is an opportunity to explore a large collection of Disneyland memorabilia. This area can be viewed as you wait for the next showing of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln which tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s life and political career in his own words. In addition to the film sections of this show, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln features a historic animatronic.
Because the Great Emancipator was one of Walt Disney’s heroes, he wanted to pay tribute to him. To do so, Disney and his imagineers worked to create a show with an Abraham Lincoln animatronic. The first version of the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln was showcased at the 1964 New York World’s Fair before making its way to Disneyland in 1965.
