Disney has shared a look at the updates to the Hall of Presidents, a Liberty Square attraction in Magic Kingdom that has been closed for refurbishment for several months.
Walt Disney World Resort temporarily closed the Hall of Presidents attraction at Magic Kingdom shortly after the election of President Joe Biden. Every time a new United States President is elected, a new Audio-Animatronic is added to the Hall of Presidents. It has been months since the attraction was open to Guests, and now, Disney has shared a new update as well as an inside look at the attraction.
It has been confirmed by Disney that the Hall of Presidents will reopen in August, which is just a few weeks away.
Per Disney Parks Blog:
For the past few months, work has been underway to add President Joe Biden to the stage as the 46th President of the United States. As Disney Imagineers are putting the final touches on the show, which will debut to guests in August, we’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the latest update.
Just as Walt envisioned, creative teams have been busy programming an Audio-Animatronics replica of the President, pairing it with a delivery of the presidential oath of office recorded at the White House by President Biden himself just for the attraction. Every detail comes together to create a realistic and symbolic glimpse into the office of the President through the years, from the carefully tailored clothing to the props, documents and furniture placed throughout the stage. Next time you visit, you may notice the table next to President Biden is adorned with a few special items, each with their own significance to the President—including peach blossoms to represent his home state of Delaware and a pair of aviators as a nod to his proclivity for the sunglasses.
And for those who are curious about what happens to presidents at The Hall of Presidents after their term has ended, the Audio-Animatronics figure of former President Donald J. Trump will take its place on stage among those who have previously served.
As Disney confirmed above, President Biden has been added to the Hall of Presidents, and, just like all other Audio-Animatronics in the attraction, the figure of former President Donald J. Trump is still included. Click here to read more.
A specific reopening date has not been announced for the attraction, but we will update our website when more information is released.
