This is a nice little show if you’re looking for a few minutes to sit down away from the hustle and bustle. Mr. Lincoln’s animatronic is touted as the oldest. It was very neat.

I love slipping by here to get out of the heat or just avoid the crowds. Total Nostalgia. During Christmas the "Voices of Liberty" come from EPCOT. They are amazing. They use the Great Moments with Mr Lincoln theatre to perform.

It's amazing that this show was created in 1965, typical Disney cutting edge technology.

The show is indoor and features an Audio-Animatronic representation of Abraham Lincoln and he is so life-like, it's amazing.

The attraction is located at the front of the park, so it's easy to miss. I wouldn't stop on the way in, but it's a great way to spend some time in the air conditioning during the day.

Regardless, it's a can't miss attraction.

Near the entrance to Disneyland. This is a very cool exhibit and a tribute to history. Maybe not the first thing you want to do when you walk into Disneyland but it is worth doubling back to check it out.

For some reason I never actually saw this show in all my years of visiting Disneyland so I decided to see it last time I went in January after hearing good things about it. It's about fifteen minutes long and is divided into two parts, with the first part being a video montage of Abraham Lincoln's time in office and the next part being of the animatronic made in the image of Mr. Lincoln himself (an actual life mask of the 16th president was used to construct his face). I for one was riveted by this nice show and the animatronic looks really cool. A lot of what was spoken during his speech is still timeless and prescient in today's day and age. An underrated little gem next to the park entrance.

This was a great activity for us to do just before leaving the park because the theater is located by the front entrance and we welcomed the chance to sit down again before trudging out into the parking lot.

It is amazing that they were able to create a realistic animatronic version of Abraham Lincoln in 1965 before the advent of personal computers! I wonder how much this has been upgraded since the original presentation, but it’s really convincing. The animatronic Lincoln never takes a step, but he stands, shifts his weight, gestures, and moves in a very realistic manner. At Disney World, this attraction evolved into the Hall of Presidents.

I didn’t realize at the time that the actor whose voice we hear for Lincoln was Royal Dano, an actor I am familiar with from many TV and movie appearances, but notably for his potrayal of the lightning rod salesman “Tom Fury” in the 1983 Disney film “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”

I understand that the speech Lincoln gives contains portions from a number of actual speeches the 16th president gave. I liked the presentation and found it moving, but thought the patriotic emphasis was a little heavy handed and could have done without three choruses of the Battle Hymn of the Republic at the end. I was also disappointed that you weren't allowed to take any photos during this presentation. Still, I would highly recommend this attraction for anyone who is interested.

The Disneyland Story portion consists of exhibits and models about the original concept for Disneyland. Since they were seating for the Lincoln part almost as soon as we arrived, we really didn’t a chance to look at that part very much.

While watching this I couldn't help but think of the polarizing tone out country has taken over the past 20 years. Maybe we are romanticizing a time long gone, and it was terrible then, but I feel like figures such as Lincoln, Roosevelt, and JFK would be embarrassed by the way we bicker, fight, and don't accomplish anything.

This attraction has been a staple at Disneyland and should always be there to remind us of what we as a nation are possible of achieving when we work together.

I recommend this attraction to anyone and everyone who loves history. President Lincoln was a great man and Disney has done this right. It's well worth the time to see it.

This was simply stunning. This animatronic is on the level of detail of a Madame Tussaud statue. This reminiscent of what Walt Disney intended for his park. This tribute to Lincoln was both entertaining and touching. You could tell the creators of this attraction had a real admiration for Lincoln.

This is an attraction that is right off main street and is on your right once you walk into the park. It's by where Mickey is greeting guests.

This has a little museum in it that you can look through as you wait for the 15 minute show to start. There's a mini video that shares Walt's love for Lincoln and how he got the actor that played Lincoln to help influence his own attraction on Lincoln.

We were told that the animatronic Lincoln that was in the show was an updated version due to the new technology the imagineers have access to. President Lincoln looked very realistic and his mannerisms were great!

Some of the video had similar clips from American Adventure in Epcot, so if you have experienced that it may seem familiar.

Overall loved the attraction and would highly recommend it.
