Description And Comments
In 2009 Barack Obama was added and the entire show revamped, including a new narration by Morgan Freeman and a new speech by George Washington. The father of our country joins Presidents Lincoln and Obama as the only chief executives with speaking parts. Although the show is revamped roughly every decade, the presentation remains strongly inspirational and patriotic, highlighting milestones in American history. A very moving show for Americans, coupled with one of Disney's best and most ambitious audioanimatronic efforts.
Through its periodic refurbishments, we've had a high opinion of The Hall of Presidents. That said, we receive a lot of mail from readers who get more than entertainment from it. A woman in St. Louis writes:
We always go to The Hall of Presidents when my husband gets cranky so he can take a nice nap.
A young mother in Marion, Ohio, adds:
The Hall of Presidents is a great place to breast-feed.
Finally, from a New Jersey teen:
Mom and Dad both fell asleep during The Hall of Presidents. Only I, a 15-year-old high school freshman, actually paid attention. It's not the most exciting thing in Disney World, but I find it very difficult to fall asleep when Morgan Freeman is speaking. His voice is way too awesome.
Details and costumes are masterful. This attraction is one of the park's most popular among older visitors. Don't be put off by long lines. The theater holds more than 700 people, thus swallowing large lines at a single gulp when visitors are admitted.
