Guests walking along Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland are in for a two for one treat when they visit The Disneyland® Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln located in the Disneyland Opera House. This attraction offers some intense background into Walt Disney, Disneyland and the Disney empire in general before theater doors open up and a completely different experience is offered.
That additional experience is also historical in nature, but offers Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln which centers around the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. This review and video offers just a glimpse of the attraction which many consider a Disney classic and a must-see.
The Disneyland® Story
When you first enter the area, you immediately notice it features an impressive collection of Disney related models, mementos and art. Take some time to stroll through the collection to catch a glimpse of the imagination and creativity that was fostered by Walt Disney to create the empire so many are still drawn to today.
It is also interesting to recognize the changes that have occurred at Disneyland since its inception and opening by comparing the present-day park to the information provided at the attraction.
Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln
As interesting as many may find the Disneyland Story, the real attraction at the location is Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Here, guests can spend a few minutes absorbing the aura of one of the nation’s greatest leaders, Abraham Lincoln.
Through music, voice and audio-animatronics, Lincoln almost appears to come to life in front of the audience. His animatronic likeness recites some of his more famous words with the entire experience leaving one in a very patriotic mood.
Voices of Liberty
Also offered at the Disneyland Opera House are performances of the Voices of Liberty. This a cappella group offers patriotic tunes celebrating the American spirit.
Walt Disney World aficionados will know of a similar group which performs at the American Adventure pavilion in the World Showcase of Epcot.
