A recent story in the Orlando Sentinel has revealed some details of the renovation of the Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom. The show typically closes when a new president is elected, but this time they are taking the opportunity to overhaul the show. Upgrades include new digital projections and LED lighting systems for better overall show quality. Also, the sequence which announces all the presidents in order is being rethought to make it easier to follow. Disney wants to secure the voice of the newest president to speak but that negotiation wont be final until the vote is decided. Abraham Lincoln will still speak in the new version, but George Washington will be added as an additional speaking role. Reported return date for the attraction is July 4th, 2009.
