Hall of Presidents

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance Classic attraction showcasing Disney audio animatronics at their best. A little too over patriotic for some non Americans, but well worth seeing. Display includes George W Bush.

The Hall of Presidents features Audio Animatronic versions of every president of the United States from George Washington onwards, and it's more interesting for it's detail than anything else.

The 25 minute show starts with a multi-screen presentation about the history of the U.S. constitution, and it's importance to the United Stated, from the time it was drawn up, to the current time. Then each of the 43 audio animatronic presidents is introduced in turn, and takes a bow on-stage, with Abraham Lincoln, and Bill Clinton, being the only two to really say much.

Part of the rest of the presentation derives from the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair exhibit "Great moments with Mr Lincoln". The costumes that are worn by the audio animatronic figures not only show the styles that were evident during the time that each of the respective president's was in power, but each costume is also tailored using fabrics and techniques from the particular time period as well.

Although it's not the most humourous or action packed attraction, it's worth visiting just to see yet another example of the incredible level of attention to detail that the Disney Imagineers put into the theme park attractions.

While the "official" presentation of each figure is going on, the rest of the figures not being introduced, turn to each other, and chat quietly between themselves. The body movements are so realistic that if it weren't for the lack of realism of the faces (an unusual oversight), you could easily believe that it's a real stage-presentation being performed by human actors.

Because it's not the most popular attraction at The Magic Kingdom, there's not usually a problem getting into the Hall, so it's best to concentrate on visiting the main attractions within the park, and aiming to visit the Hall of Presidents when the temperature is hot enough (and you're tired enough) to want to just sit down somewhere for half an hour or so.
