The Hall of Presidents

As mentioned above, history buffs, patriots, and fans of original Walt Disney attractions will love The Hall of Presidents. The theater is quite impressive, along with the representation of each United States President in animatronic form.

The Hall of Presidents is a full 25-minutes long, and you might have to wait for the current show to let out as well. Compromising your time here can be a difficult choice depending on your personal touring circumstances.

If you have more than one day planned at the Magic Kingdom and are interested, I would recommend seeing the performance.

The Hall of Presidents is really well done. But if you are strapped for time and have a hankering to hit up all the rides, maybe leave it for a future trip.

Best Time to Experience Hall of Presidents: This is one of those perfect attractions for inclement weather. However, remember that most anyone in the area will flock to the theater to escape rain or storms.

Sometimes those people like to stand in the theater lobby and browse the displays. If this happens to you, I recommend going on in when the next performance opens up and see the show.

Fun Fact: Every time a new president is elected, the show closes for a period of time. During this time, Disney installs an animatronic figure representing the new president.

Fun Fact: While there have been 45 terms as president to date, there is only 44 animatronics of presidents. This is because Grover Cleveland actually served two non-consecutive terms as president.
