Hall of Presidents to reopen as a ‘new show’ with theater upgrades, as Walt Disney World adds Trump animatronic

in Disney, Magic Kingdom, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Over the past few days, there’s been no shortage of controversy surrounding the addition of an animatronic version of President Trump to the Hall of Presidents attraction at the Magic Kingdom, even prompting Disney to release an official statement on the matter. But now Walt Disney World has also released details on upgrades the long-standing attraction will receive when it reopens later this year.

The Hall of Presidents will receive a “broad range of enhancements,” according to Disney, as an entirely “new show.”

This includes a “complete theater upgrade” which includes “a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system.” We will continue to receive the “multi-screen viewing experience” that’s been part of the attraction for many years, but now the attraction’s story will offer a “wider vantage point of our country’s history.”

Since the last update to the Hall of Presidents when Obama was added eight years ago, the attraction was criticized for featuring only a small cross-section of US history. Now it seems when it returns later this year, not only will we receive a new presidential speech, but also a much broader look at how far we’ve come as a country.

The Hall of Presidents has been announced to open in late 2017.

      If they attempt to be reflective of the actual person they’ll probably get complaints that the new Trump animatronic is broken… not using properly formatted sentence structure or even relaying cognizant thought patterns. However, I’m guessing that will only be noticed by roughly half of those who attend.

        They should then show Obama, how he really was… a corrupt anti-white, anti-police, anti-Semitic muslim who practically destroyed America. His group of criminals including Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Joe Bide, and Hillary Clinton caused America to become divided, in addition to bribing CNN, NBC, ABC, and other far-left propaganda sources.

    “How far we’ve come as a country…” and how far we’ve fallen.

      More like how far we have recovered from the alt-left tyrant of the past 8 years.

    Let’s show far we fallen with Obama’s disastrous presidency. Then we got Trump to reverse 20 years of globalism that brought America’s decline.

    I applaud Disney for doing this despite internet controversy. It shows respect for the Presidency. Let’s face it, we can all probably learn something from Disney’s move here … meaning: fans of Trump, critics of Trump, fans of Obama, critics of Obama… the list goes on and on.

    Bravo, Disney! Keep it classy! 🙂
