Great Moments with Mr. Disney's Hero

Walt Disney has become a hero to many. But who was his hero? For the answer to that, we can look way back to his school days. Asked to prepare a presentation in grade school, he chose to dress up as his hero- Abraham Lincoln. His presentation was so good, the principal pulled Walt out of class to give it to all of the other classes at the school. That's Walt pictured below on the right with his friend Walt Pfeiffer.

Years later, when Mr. Disney wanted to show the world his new technology called Audio-Animatronics, he featured his favorite hero- Abraham Lincoln.

Premiering at the 1964 World's Fair, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln would eventually move out west to DISNEYLAND, entertaining Mr. Disney's guests to this day.
