The Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom is closed for a touch up. The closure back in January meant the addition of President Joe Biden to the attraction. This time, the reasons for refurbishment remain unclear.
A permit was filed with Orange County to “Provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction.” The property was listed as 1430 Magic Kingdom Drive, which is the Hall of Presidents’ address. The Buena Vista Construction Company will be doing the work. They a typically do since they are affiliated with Walt Disney World Resort. The permit will expire in June 2021, although we hope that the project will not take that long!
The Hall of Presidents is a classic Walt Disney World attraction that has been the subject of some controversy as of late. Some park goers have petitioned Walt Disney World to remove President Donald Trump, now that he is no longer in office. Others prefer to have the experience continue in the same way it always has. For those who have never stepped inside the Hall, the attraction centers around the history of the American presidency. It has all 45 Presidents, both past and present, included in the presentation. Grover Cleveland was both the 22nd and 24th president. He served two non-consecutive terms, so there indeed have only been 45 presidents, not 46. Audio-Animatronic figures come to life thanks to Disney Imagineers, bringing American history to generations of young Disney lovers.
