The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is an audio-animatronic stage show highlighting some of the most important moments in the life of Abraham Lincoln, including his childhood in Illinois and his leadership during the Civil War, told through a multimedia presentation including original music and artwork. The show’s climax is when a lifelike animatronic of President Lincoln gives a speech to the audience about the dangers facing the United States, and offering a word of encouragement to the American people.
The Abraham Lincoln robot was the first humanlike Audio-Animatronic built by Disney, and was originally presented at the 1964-65 World’s Fair in New York. It was duplicated at Disneyland in 1965 and became a permanent attraction in the Main Street Opera House. Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the United States or the history of Disneyland.
