Overview of The Hall of Presidents:
If you enjoy history or politics you’ll particularly love this inspirational and moving tribute to the American presidents. It’s a combination of a widescreen 180° film, music and Audio-Animatronics. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the film goes over a brief history of a few past U. S. presidents, and then the Audio-Animatronics presidents are revealed. Every U.S. president is represented, though only some talk to the audience and each other.
Queue & seating information for The Hall of Presidents
The show starts every half hour. Guests wait indoors in the rotunda with portraits of presidents and displays such as George W. Bush’s inaugural cowboy boots and dresses worn by former first ladies.
Wheelchair/ECV info: Guests using wheelchairs and ECVs should go inside through the door to the right of the turnstiles. Wait on the right side of the rotunda. A cast member will bring you inside to be seated before the other guests are allowed in. You can stay in your wheelchair/ECV, or park it and transfer to a regular seat. There are no special effects that the seats provide; it’s a matter of choosing where you’ll be most comfortable. Wheelchair seating is in the rear of the theater and there are a limited numbers of seats, so it’s possible to arrive and find all the spots for that show are full.
More details about The Hall of Presidents
Though this attraction has been around since 1971. Our past presidents gather to hear the words of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, etc. The Audio-Animatronics are impressive! For example, in order to create a life-like audio-animatronics replica of President Obama, Disney studied his natural mannerisms, hair, wardrobe and voice patterns. In fact, the voice you’ll hear is actually Obama’s.
This show is housed in a 700-seat theater. The seats are theater style and may be tight for people of size. This attraction may feel a bit dull for some small children, but here’s a comment from an adult visitor:
“I visited just after the renovations, and I was surprised at how emotional the show got me. I was really moved. The presidential replicas were really amazing, but the entire show was beautifully presented. Frankly I found it far more moving than the Epcot American Adventure Show which actually put me to sleep (I was snoring).”
