July 2009 in an historic but also controversial, difficult year...  That is when the new animatronic of President Barack Obama premieres at the Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom at WDW, along with improvements to the attraction, after several months of work by the Disney Imagineers.  Will you be a visitor this year or someday?  Feel free to vote, respect others' of course, but let's see if this new attraction will be popular when it opens and after it opens.  To see how others voted you have to vote yourself.

I voted "Yes...my own answer..." and it is because I want to see the Hall of Presidents -- but I will not be going there to see Barack Obama. I just like the attraction and I want to see it again, especially with the new show it is rumored to have. My answer would be the same even if John McCain had won.

And I think I figured out why Obama won't be speaking in the new show at the Hall of Presidents...

...no teleprompter!

"No teleprompter!" - NICE one! LOL

I voted Yes, I want to see MK as a whole...

As much as I personally dislike the policies of our current President, I am not going to hold that against the attraction.

I am glad he will not be speaking (I hadn't realized that) because I don't want the show to turn into some sort of propaganda.

I believe the attraction will still be closed during our visit the end of April.

Official reopening date, from what I've heard, is July 4th... but probably will open a bit before that in "soft opening" testing mode. I've also heard it is closed through July 1st.

Michael Broggie writes in the Winter 2008 edition of the Carolwood Chronicle that Disney's Blaine Gibson relates that for each current president in the Hall of Presidents, two Audio-Animatronics have been made -- one for the man who wound up being elected president and the other for the other major political candidate who had been running against him. Why? Because in order to meet their deadline to put in the new president in a timely manner, they actually are creating Animatronics of both major candidate before the November election is held!
:cool:

So, I guess, be on the lookout for an Animatronic that looks a bit like Sen. John McCain the next time Disney needs to refurbish an attraction with additional figures.
