My last installment of Town Square shows photos of one of my favorite classic Disneyland attractions, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. This one has Walt written all over it; history, patriotism, showmanship, and of course, the innovation of "tomorrow." Here's a photo of Walt with Victor Green (WED Project Manager) and the model for this attraction:  More...

@Davelandweb, will we ever see more posts from you? I've learned so much from your posts. Thank you for the Disney history lessons! - LangdonAlger  232.2 #1461 6:24AM
Hi Langdon - Thanks for the request! Time has been hard to come by lately, and most of my efforts go into my blog: http://davelandblog.blogspot.com - Davelandweb  179.3 #2139 9:45AM
Very cool! If you check on my profile, a while back I posted a pic of my grandpa when they modeled the Lincoln animatronic figure after him. I'll bump it for you :) thanks for the post!! - MissMolly  1230.0 #112 11:19AM
Hi Miss Molly - If there's a way to send me a link directly to your post, that'd be great! - Davelandweb  179.3 #2139 11:38AM

Guests are getting ready for a Starbucks invasion on Main Street, U.S.A. as the opening date approaches. In December of 1955, there was no need for Starbucks; Disneyland had Maxwell House Coffee, seen in the background of this 1955 photo:  More...

Maxwell House is not really a household name any longer. I think it's great that Disney is keeping up with change, by adding Starbucks. Is Starbucks my favorite? No, but I still purchase it bc it's consistant. MH is not anything I'd ever buy. They've always had great sponsors and brand recognition is huge.  - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4468.2 #20 2:29PM
This area is still called the Egg House after what it used to be. Also, there is now the embroidery shop there too. - BaseballMickey_CM  6345.2 #12 11:13PM
the egg house was several years after the Maxwell house in the late 70s - Dave   11842.2 #2 11:03AM
I'd be totally cool with Starbucks "sponsoring" it, like Maxwell House and others in the past. Turning it INTO a Starbucks is what I'm against! - msdizmaui  632.2 #270 6:54PM
I totally agree! - MelodyMouse  3473.6 #27 8:28PM
I hope it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb... Does anyone know what the front is going to look like??? Is it really a full Starbucks cafe right in the park? - ames013  75.5 #3777 7:44PM
Have you seen the one in DCA? It's done quite tastefully - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4468.2 #20 11:15PM
I'm with HMACIF; I half-expected the Starbucks on BVS to be an eyesore. I was very pleased with how they did it and now it's one of my favorite places to relax in DCA. I'm sure as a Main Street landmark the Market House updates will be equally tasteful. - makingmemories  311.8 #744 1:23AM

MX Princess, that is a famous rumor, but according to the staff who give the Walk in Walts Footsteps tour that is false. They said it is never turned off...

Great pictures! For those curious, you would take a round trip ride around the park and either start at Main Street or at Frontierland station. The train on the outside track here is headed to that Frontierland station.
