Description And Comments

The Hall of Presidents combines a wide-screen theater presentation of the highlights and milestones in the United States’ political history, with a short stage show including life-size animatronic replicas of every US president. Morgan Freeman (who else?) provides most of the narration, with additional speeches by George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Barack Obama.

We expect the new US president to take Mr. Obama’s place in 2017, shutting down the attraction briefly while the new animatronic is added. Disney sometimes takes that as an opportunity to update the script, but the inspirational, patriotic tone is a constant. For that reason, foreign visitors rate the show lower than do Americans.

We’ve had a high opinion of Hall of Presidents throughout its scripts. 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 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.

Touring Tips

Detail 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.
