Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years was an exhibit about the history of Disneyland.

Summary

It was located on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Opera House, which since 1965 had housed Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. In the lobby are displays featuring models, photos, concept art and sculptures associated with many Disneyland attractions. There was also a scale model of Disneyland as it appeared in the summer of the opening year 1955.

The second portion of the attraction was a movie which was shown in the Opera House's theater. It featured Steve Martin, who once worked at Merlin's Magic Shop in Fantasyland, and Donald Duck. The movie was a 17 minute long humorous look at how Disneyland has changed throughout the years. After exiting the theater guests walked through the Disney Gallery, which included many original paintings with a Disney theme. The Disney Gallery was moved to the exit lobby of the Opera House to make way for the Disneyland Dream Suite above Pirates of the Caribbean.

This attraction premiered on May 5, 2005, and closed on March 15, 2009, to make way for the return of Mr. Lincoln which opened on December 18, 2009.

The movie Disneyland: The First 50 Magical Years has been shown on a wide-screen television in the Opera House lobby since September 26, 2009.[1] From 2009 to 2013 some scenes were cut for unknown reasons. The shortened version also provided show timing to the Cast Member running the "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" attraction. When the edited "First 50 Magical Years" ends, it is a cue for the Cast Member to invite guests inside the Opera House to move into the north end of the lobby, and to begin the preshow for "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln". Beginning in 2013, the film now plays in its entirety.
