'Twas The Day Before Christmas

Compared to the crowds the past three days, today wasn't all that bad for being Christmas eve.

Added decorations to make it less tacky

A camouflage fence in the very back

The walkway is now open for pedestrian traffic

Filled with rocks now

The new color scheme for the trashcans. I am going to guess the reason for the blue color is because of Mermaid

All is calm, all is bright

Today is the last day to visit Santa. Tomorrow Santa Goofy will be on hand to greet Guests

Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln

Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln

On December 18, 2009 Disneyland reopened Great Moments with Mr.Lincoln. The attraction has been gone from the Main Street Opera House for nearly 5 years. During those years, the Opera House was home to the "The First 50 Years" presentation.

With the refurbishment comes an updated version of the Lincoln animatronic. This new Lincoln is more life like in the way he pauses to take a breath and creates realistic facial expressions while he makes his speec. And it's all possible due to his head being an electronic piece while the rest of his body is still uses hydraulics.

Below are three videos of the presentation. The first video is the Lincoln lobby with portrait about Lincoln and his life. The second video is the film version of Lincoln's presentation in the theater. And the third video is Lincoln's speech as well as an ending montage from pictures found at the exit lobby.
