The Hall of Presidents
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. In addition, compromising your time here can be difficult depending on your 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 when the next performance opens up and seeing the show.
Fun Fact: Every time a new president is elected, the show closes for some 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 are only 44 animatronics of presidents. This is because Grover Cleveland actually served two non-consecutive terms as president.
