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  232.0 #1432 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 #2118 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  1216.7 #104 11:19AM

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  3915.9 #23 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  5924.7 #13 11:13PM
the egg house was several years after the Maxwell house in the late 70s - Dave   11101.0 #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  622.2 #270 6:54PM
I totally agree! - MelodyMouse  2681.3 #36 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  61.8 #3995 7:44PM
Have you seen the one in DCA? It's done quite tastefully - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3915.9 #23 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 #725 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...

At the last installment of our journey through Disneyland from start to finish, our Grand Circle Tour on the Disneyland Railroad left us back at the Main Street Station. Perhaps your Tour Guide would gather you here to discuss Town Square, located directly below:  More...
..Few other interesting things is that the band stand floated around the park and was in 4 different locations during its history. Along wit it being where carnation was it was also located close to the matterhorn, the Font of the Rivers of America, in New Orleans square and one of the coolest things is that its still around...stay tuned for his post about its fate - Dave  11101.0 #2 10:37AM

Great photos, thanks for sharing. My favorite part, aside from the Diorama's themselves, is the soundtrack. The transition from the "dump, te, dump, te, dump, te, da da de" to the "thundering" of the Dinosaurs is the best musical transition ever. - KennyV  35.3 #4886 2:21PM

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.
