“My wife and I are going to Walt Disney World starting the 8th of December. Is there any information on when the Hall of Presidents will be open?”

***UPDATE: The Hall of Presidents re-opened on December 19, 2017. ***

Mike, as of 10:00 this morning (Friday, September 15). There is no information about when the Hall of Presidents will open again. The only announcement has been said it’s going to be in the fall. When in the fall? My guess is that in the next six weeks it will be open.

I’m thinking that probably by the time I go the end of October, first of November. I’m expecting the Hall of Presidents to be open then. Then again, it might not be.

I do not think it will bleed into next year so by the time you go in December,

Dad’s Bottom Line

My guess is it will be open and that’s the bottom line. Don’t know when it’s going to open but my guess is by the time you go it will be open.

If you don’t like the attraction no one is forcing you to enter.
You enter freely and with respect for all the other Guests at the attraction!

Dec 13, 2017 I’ll bet its permanently changed…

I have heard and read that the opera seating will be eliminated.
I suspect all the bad rumors are actually true and this attraction will be a mere shadow of itself in history and fun.

Not to mention a very nice air conditioned seat for 30 minutes.

Why does Disney have to eliminate all that Walt really envisioned? Oh right, because he doesn’t want to just be WDW anymore…worst CEO EVER!

And not bring in Murdoch. Bring in from the ranks of employees that love Walt Disney world true imagineers and ones that carry the torch in the future for Disney world. I’m so done with Iger

The Disney Imagineers had Trump and Clinton figures made well before the elections. Because Disney leans so far to the left, they don’t want to open it with Trump. Disney should be ashamed. The refurbishment story is not true. Disney employees know the truth.

I have heard that the Hall of Presidents has been ready to go for some time but has not reopened because Disney considers it too controversial. So now they are going to change it into something else. The Hall of Presidents is no more.

Nov 15, 2017 Shame on you Disney
by: Anonymous

I think it’s terrible that Disney has delayed the opening of the Hall of Presidents. How dare you be so disrespectful? Newsflash… You may just be offending a whole lot of patrons who may not choose to visit your parks anymore. It’s shameful, rude, and unacceptable!

I am personally furious with Iger pulling this partisan stunt. Open the Hall! We enjoy the rest the ac the whole historical value. I have disliked many presidents but it sure didn’t stop me from enjoying my country’s history!
