Disney World's Hall of Presidents to reopen in August and a first look at the Joe Biden animatronic

President Joe Biden will join the Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom in August as the attraction reopens from its eight-month update.

According to Disney, "Creative teams have been busy programming an Audio-Animatronics replica of the President, pairing it with a delivery of the presidential oath of office recorded at the White House by President Biden himself just for the attraction. Every detail comes together to create a realistic and symbolic glimpse into the office of the President through the years, from the carefully tailored clothing to the props, documents and furniture placed throughout the stage. Next time you visit, you may notice the table next to President Biden is adorned with a few special items, each with their own significance to the President—including peach blossoms to represent his home state of Delaware and a pair of aviators as a nod to his proclivity for the sunglasses."

Disney also confirmed today that following tradition, the Audio-Animatronics figure of former President Donald J. Trump will take its place on stage among those who have previously served.

In today's announcement, Disney made no mention of any changes being made to the attraction's film, or any introduction of the much-rumored Muppets tie-in.

The Hall of Presidents closed January 20 2021 to begin the update, the day of the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States.

In accordance to the mask mandate of WDW indoors, all POTUS at HoP should be masked up also until further notice by the order of Mickey.

Agreed. I despise 45, but the version of the show around him was fabulous and incredibly well done. Still made me proud to be an American!

Skipping HoP because you object to who's in office is dumb, in my opinion. Especially given the background of some of the previous presidents.

Very well said. I’ll be skipping this attraction on my next trip, too. No need to be aggravated on vacation. Morally objectionable person? Yes, you nailed it!

More proof that being funny does not come easy to some people.

Will the CDC guidance modification on mask wearing effect the Joe AA? Will a mask be added to in support of the modified policy?

With all of this mask or no mask coming back, has anyone heard a reopening date for the Hall of Presidents? Starting to think "August" means the very end of august since they haven't set a date.

Listening to the radio into work today, someone was explaining how they couldn’t turn off their phone because there job was so important to people, guess what it was…..sports reporter. Had to “break stories” and told family he had to step away when something happened. It’s sad where we are in that area.
