Inside Mr. Lincoln, literally

The OC Register reports that the long missed Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln will re-open later this month at Disneyland. That’s good news. It’s vacation for Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary should have ended 3 years ago.

I’m curious to see what the Imagineers have done this time. We do know that the show will include Paul Frees original narration and Royal Dano’s original recording for the voice of Lincoln. They recently restored the Hall of Presidents Lincoln to the Royal Dano recording of the Gettysburg Address and it’s quite stirring.

For a little flashback the OC Register has also included an infographic that looks inside the operations of the original 1964 model of the Lincoln audio-animatronic. This is one of the attractions my grandfather, Vic Greene, played a large part in bringing back from the World’s Fair. So it was really wonderful to see that.
