The Hall of Presidents Reopens on December 19 at Magic Kingdom

Following a year-long transformation, The Hall of Presidents will officially reopen at the Magic Kingdom Park on Tuesday, December 19, with any enhancements (including new projectors) that will bring the story of the American presidency to life as never before. The epic theatrical production was originally envisioned by Walt Disney himself, who helped creating a single animated figure of President Abraham Lincoln for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair.


In 1971, advances in technology made it possible for Imagineers to make Walt Disney’s vision a reality by including every chief executive who ever served the United States of America.



The history of innovation at The Hall of Presidents continues to this day. In addition to updating the show’s content, Imagineers have incorporated the latest in theatrical design and Audio-Animatronics technology. Landmark moments in history come alive on a panoramic 180-degree screen that transports guests across more than 200 years of the American story. High-impact projection, sound, lighting and other enhancements take guests into rare and indelible moments in history that helped define a nation.


As has been the tradition with every new president since the attraction debuted, an Audio-Animatronics figure of President Donald J. Trump has been added to the show and features the latest advances in technology that enable smoother and more lifelike movements. President Trump personally recorded remarks exclusively for The Hall of Presidents, just as each sitting president has done for the attraction since the early 1990s.
