Happy Birthday President Lincoln! Great Moments @ Disney
February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th U.S. President, is born in a one-room log
cabin in Hardin County, Kentucky. He is the first president born outside the original Thirteen
Colonies. Lincoln is the subject of such Disney attractions as Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln and Walt Disney World’s The Hall of Presidents.
Walt Disney was always fascinated with the life of Lincoln. As a young boy, Walt recited
Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to his elementary class … dressed as Abe Lincoln!
May 2, 1964, the New York World’s Fair opened with Disney’s Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln!
Disney Imagineers are the very first to create Audio-Animatronics. Specifically, Disney Legend Blaine Gibson created the Abraham Lincoln exhibit which debuted at this Disney attraction at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City.
This exhibit can be still be seen at the Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream attraction at the Hollywood Studios. CaribbeanDays can take you there!
