Disney has just tweeted out an official statement on President Trump as it relates to the Hall of Presidents. Here is the official statement from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts:
“As we have stated, President Trump will have a speaking role in the Hall of Presidents like every president since 1993. We have been working closely with the White House and the president’s recording session has been scheduled. We have repeatedly stated that the attraction will re-open in late 2017.”
In addition to confirmation that President Trump will have a speaking role, changes to the show were announced as well. The Hall of Presidents is getting a new show, and a complete theater upgrade including a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system. The multi-screen viewing experience you may have seen in prior versions of the attraction is returning with an even wider vantage point of our country’s history.
The Hall of Presidents was originally slated to reopen in “late June” according to internal documents that have since been updated to reflect a later opening season. No official opening date has been set.
