From the planning stages of Disneyland, Walt Disney had hoped to build a show that would pay tribute to all U.S Presidents, but the technology at the time had not yet caught up to Disney's creative mind. Instead, Disney's Imagineers decided to focus on building a show centered on President Lincoln, one of Disney's childhood heroes. The Audio-Animatronic show debuted at the New York World's Fair in 1964 and opened at Disneyland a year later.

More About Hotels near Main Street Opera House...

Over the years, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln has undergone a number of revisions and name changes. There were two periods where the show was either closed or replaced entirely. Today, the attraction is known as The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, incorporating elements from past productions and an improved Mr. Lincoln -- an electronic autonomatronic figure that has far more emotive capacity than the original version. 

Budget Hotels Near Disneyland 

If you are planning a trip to Anaheim, California, there are cheap and budget-friendly hotels and motels near Disneyland. If you are looking for no frills and the best hotels near the theme parks, consider any number of properties along Anaheim Boulevard, like Park Vue Inn, which are affordable lodging options.

Pros and Cons of Staying Close to Disneyland 

Depending on how many people you are traveling with, and their ages, staying near Disneyland has its pros and cons. Many of the properties are older without any recent renovation. If you are staying literally across the street from Disneyland, expect everyone else in your hotel to be there for Disney as well -- that means lots of noise early in the morning, packed restaurants and breakfast rooms, and, often times, a lack of parking. A number of hotels also charge for parking in an attempt to keep Disneyland guests from skipping the official Disney parking queues and high prices. 

Tips for Visiting Disneyland

It's pretty much a given you aren't visiting Disneyland just to experience Disneyland's Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, so paying attention to peak wait times is important. Unlike Walt Disney World, Disneyland can be busy year round thanks to the mild Southern California weather and the fact that many of the visitors are locals who have annual passes. Avoid prime holidays like Christmas, Easter and Spring Break if you want to avoid the busiest of days.
