Rides have been getting touch-ups, hotel rooms have been getting makeovers, and paint jobs have seen updates all around the resort. But one attraction was closed for a very specific reason — a new president has been added to Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents.
Though it’s still closed to the public, Disney shared a first look at the new President Joe Biden animatronic installed inside the iconic Hall of Presidents show. Each time a new president is elected into office, a matching animatronic is made that will join the other presidents on stage.
The President Biden animatronic is in place now and when the attraction opens back up again, he will deliver a portion of Biden’s inauguration speech towards the end of the show. Here’s a first look at what the new animatronic looks like in its place on the stage.
On the table next to him, there are some nods to the president. Peach blossoms represent his home state of Delaware and a pair of aviator sunglasses are there as well, considering he wears the style frequently.
Disney also shared that the show will reopen in August of this year. We’ll be there to check it out when it does!
But, Hall of Presidents isn’t the only thing in Disney World that will be reopening soon. In terms of hotels, opening dates have been announced for Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts — French Quarter and Riverside, as well as for 2 of Disney’s All-Star Resorts.
Reopening dates have also been announced for Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Hollywood Studios’ Beauty and the Beast Stage Show. Plus, Disney has announced that fireworks will be returning to Disney’s Hollywood Studios soon!
