President Lincoln is back in the house at Disneyland

From Disneyland's PR people this afternoon:
A longtime favorite of Disneyland guests will return as “The Disneyland Story, featuring Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln,” an enhanced version of the show which appeared, in various forms, in the Main Street Opera House at Disneyland park from 1966 through 2004 . The attraction will reopen later this year in celebration of the 200th anniversary year of Abraham Lincoln’s birth.
Disney's also reviving the Disney Gallery, which went away when the apartment over Pirates of the Caribbean was converted into Disneyland's "Year of a Million Dreams" suite. The new home for the Gallery will be the Bank of Main Street, displacing the Annual Pass processing center, which will move to the Plaza Pavilion.
I wrote earlier this month that Disney blew a PR opportunity by not having Lincoln open for the bicentennial. But I am happy to see that the show will return this year. No firm date for the re-opening, yet. Better late than never.
