Millions of guests have experienced Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, one of the greatest audio animatronics achievements of Walt Disney Imagineering. Why did Walt Disney choose Abraham Lincoln to bring to life?
Walt Disney was always fond of Abraham Lincoln. So much so that he once dressed up like Abraham Lincoln and recited the Gettysberg Address from memory. Shown below on the right, Walt's presentation was so well received that his principal had him go from room to room at his elementary school to repeat it for the other kids. Little did anyone know that this little kid would go on to entertain the world.
