A Celebration of Liberty’s Leaders

Discover the unique relationship between the President and the American people during this rousing presentation.

Enter the pristine Hall of Presidents in the heart of Liberty Square—modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia—and make your way beneath an awe-inspiring grand rotunda. Peruse an authentic artifact collection nearby featuring such treasures as George Washington’s dental instruments and Abraham Lincoln’s leather portfolio.

The Presidents Will See You Now
Stroll into the 700-seat main theater, home to 3 massive projection screens and a grand proscenium. As the lights dim, sit back and enjoy an original film—developed by a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian—relaying the dramatic story of the United States of America.

During the presentation, revel in America’s enduring origins, the formation of our Constitution and the hard-fought struggles along the way—such as the American Revolution and the Civil War. Listen to the stirring words of John F. Kennedy echo throughout the theater and watch Abraham Lincoln—in attendance on stage—deliver his Gettysburg address.

Then, witness a very special display as the curtain rises to reveal each and every United States President, together for the very first time—followed by stirring speeches about the American Dream delivered by Presidents George Washington and Barack Obama.

The Birth of a Legend

Envisioned by Walt Disney, The Hall of Presidents proved too ambitious for the technology of the time.

Conceived as animated wax figures, the Presidents didn’t quite look and act as Walt Disney had originally envisioned. So Walt decided to work with his Imagineers to develop the first Audio-Animatronics figure in human form. The result was the startling realistic, classic attraction Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, which debuted to rave reviews at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

In 1971, with the technology tested and perfected, Abraham Lincoln—in addition to every other President at the time—appeared onstage in The Hall of Presidents in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom park. Since then, every U.S. President, including the addition of Barack Obama, has been added to the roll call.
