Almost a year ago, Donald Trump won the election to become the 45th President of the United States. Since earlier this year, the Hall of Presidents has been closed in order to add him to the show and also to add other enhancements.
The Walt Disney World website originally stated that the Hall of Presidents would be closed for refurbishments through late 2017, but it appears now that Disney has updated its page to reflect no end date to the refurbishment. Disney has not announced if it will reopen in time for the 1 year anniversary of his election or if it will extend into 2018.
Despite some media reports, it was confirmed by Disney that President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993.
The Hall of Presidents, which is located in the Magic Kingdom, is getting a new show, and a complete theater upgrade including a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system. The multi-screen viewing experience you may have seen in prior versions of the attraction is returning with an even wider vantage point of our country’s history.
