Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, the beloved attraction in Main Street U.S.A., will be reopening after nearly two years of hiatus. Disneyland: the First 50 Years, dedicated to celebrating the 50th Anniversary, replaced Lincoln's show in May 2005. A user on Mouse Planet announced the news yesterday, stating her source as the "Mousesavers newsletter":
"Disneyland: the First 50 Years (Disneyland) expected to close sometime this spring for changeover back to Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln."

Have you heard if there are going to be any changes to the Mr. Lincoln exhibit? Wasn't this originally from one of the World's Fairs?

Hello mickeyfan--

As of now, we are not sure whether or not the attraction will have any changes made. Some speculate a completely new version of the attraction, while others hope for the classic one to return.

Yes, this was from one of the World's Fair--it was the main feature of the State of Illinois Pavilion in the 1964-1965 World's Fair.
