Attraction reopening in late 2017 The reopening of Disney’s Hall of Presidents has now been moved to an unknown date in late 2017. Disney has finally scheduled a recording session with the current president to make sure he has a speaking role just like all acting president Audio-Animatronics since 1993. In addition to adding President Trump, the Hall of Presidents attraction is getting a makeover as well with a refurbished theater and new sound and projection systems. As a special side note, Walt Disney showcased the first human Audio-Animatronic, Mr. Abraham Lincoln, at the 1964 World’s Fair. Walt Disney World’s Abraham Lincoln debuted in 1971 at the Hall of Presidents. CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL STORY
