Hall of Presidents

A recent post in the WDW Magic forum suggests that the Muppets cryptic announcement made a few days ago means the Muppets will be taking over the Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom.

Here is the post by WDW Magic user TheVisionarySoul:

Well, it looks like the cat is about to be unleashed. The Muppets will be taking over The Hall of Presidents. From what I understand, the Muppets will have mostly a narrative role in the show, with the basic principle of the show remaining in tact. The Muppets just posted a cryptic message on Twitter, and I have a strong hunch that is what this is about. I’ve also been told by multiple sources that something is happening here, so I fully expect it. We should get an official announcement from the company in the next day or two.

Because of the nature of this news, I will ask that this thread remain in news and rumors at least for 24 hours. I will also ask that no one make this political. This is about the new show with The Muppets, nothing more.

If nothing comes of it in the next 2 days, please feel free to move it to the political section.

With the political divide among Democrats and Republicans at its widest point in years will the Muppets be able to bridge that gap?

Even the man behind Touring Plans Len Testa who has called many changes before they became official had this to say:

Last year Disney pulled Great Moments of History with the Muppets from the Magic Kingdom and many fans were upset, there was even a petition going around to save the show. Disney did however cave to the backlash a little bit and brought the show back temporarily before retiring it again.

Then over Christmas, The Muppets returned briefly to greet guests and wish them a Happy Holidays. While I was glad to see the Muppets return it was kinda strange as there was no talking from the Muppets, I would like to have seen some audio from the characters.

While I grew up with and love the Muppets it feels like to me Disney just doesn’t know what to do with them. There is the Muppet Courtyard with Muppet’s 3D and Pizza Rizzo but that is pretty much it.

If they are going to host the Hall of Presidents I think it is going to have to be tastefully done as the Hall of Presidents is more of an educational show and not quite silly as the Muppets can be.

Again this is all just gossip and speculation at this point so take it with a grain of salt.


What do you think would you like to see the Muppets return and host the Hall of Presidents?

  1. I’ve been saying they should do this for years. Not because I have a problem with the Hall of Presidents as it is, I think it’s fine, but people keep whining about it and most of the time when I’ve been there it’s been like me and 10 other people in the whole theater. If this makes people more interested and less whiny I’m fine with it…but now we know the announcement was just that they’re bringing the Muppet Show to D+ so this is all moot anyway.

  2. I would like to see Disney give the Muppets to a company that will do right by them, as Disney obviously doesn’t care enough nor do what’s right for the muppets.

  3. This would be a great idea and would bring me back to see the show. I haven’t stepped foot into the building since the last change and this would definitely bring me, and others, back.

    As a learning experience, I can only see the Muppets adding to the excitement about learning about our nation. There is nothing wrong with adding humor to learning to make it more engaging and easier to retain. It would also add to more repeat views from many as well.

    I am not sure what Walt would have wanted, nobody does, but I don’t see how this would not be something he would be behind. It is entertaining and would be more appropriate for all ages. Also, I am fairly certain that the show would not touch on our nations current situation so that is not going to be an issue.

    More Muppets is always a good thing!

  4. I am not against this idea. Given what the country is going through, I think The Muppets can bridge a very apparent gap. The Muppet Christmas Carol is my ultimate must-watch Christmas film every year. It’s a time honored classic tale but true to form Muppetry. If The Hall of Presidents received the same level of treatment and care as that film did (with lots of Sam Eagle with his own “It’s the American Way” song), I will be pleasantly overjoyed. I’m sure people will probably be pissed at the idea but you can’t have The Muppets without song and dance so I say I believe that The Muppets has
    done me good and will do me good… and I say God bless it! ^-~

  5. Terrible idea !!! Please don’t do it !! It is a learning experience for everyone so let’s keep it that way !!!

  6. I hate this idea so much. Not what Walt would have wanted. It just further makes a joke of our nations current situation. This is literally my favorite thing at Disney and im not ok with it.
