Hall of Presidents Reopens with President Biden
The Hall of Presidents reopened around noon today with 46th President Joe Biden present and accounted for!
Walt Disney World closed the Liberty Square attraction in January in order to add the new animatronic figure, as they do each time a new President is elected.
MickeyBlog was there this afternoon to see the brand new show!
And there’s the newest President of the United States!
The addition of each President brings with it an audio delivery of the presidential oath of office. This was recorded at the White House by President Biden himself just for the attraction!
Despite a recent petition calling for his removal, President Trump is still present in the attraction, as is every former President, controversial or not.
It’s not just Presidential figures that are added to the the Hall of Presidents. Appropriate scenery and props are also curated to compliment the new President. President Biden’s table space features peach blossoms, representing his home state of Delaware, and his signature pair of aviator style sunglasses.
In case you aren’t familiar with the Hall of Presidents, the attraction showcases an audio-animatronic replica of each US President.
When the Hall of Presidents was first conceived it was pitched as a collection of wax figures. Walt Disney wasn’t a fan so he tasked the Imagineers to develop the first audio-animatronics in human form. Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln displayed the Imagineers efforts first, at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. This was expanded to all Presidents to create the Hall of Presidents in 1971.
