Donald Trump to have speaking role at Disney’s Hall of Presidents Terry Roen 06/26/2017 Our Fun 2 President Donald Trump will have a speaking role in Disney’s Hall of Presidents attraction, just like every sitting president since Bill Clinton. The attraction, modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia, features audio-animatronic figures of all U.S. presidents. It was one of the original attractions at the Magic Kingdom, which opened in 1971. Disney has added the new president after every election and will continue that tradition, according to Jacquee Wahler, vice president of communications at Disney. “The same thing that we’ve done with other presidents, is the same plan we have for President Trump,” Wahler told News13. Abraham Lincoln and George Washington give speeches, along with the current president. The attraction was last closed in 2009 to add former president Barack Obama. Disney CEO Bob Iger told reporters at the opening of Pandora last month that they were working on creating a script for Trump. Iger resigned from the Trump’s business advisory board after the president pulled the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement. A Change.org online petition called for Trump to remain silent. It gathered 14,706 signatures but did not convince the theme park giant to squelch the sitting president. The attraction has been closed since January 17 for renovation and is scheduled to reopen by the end of the year. 2 Responses Sunburn for 6.27.17 – A final Scott veto?; Scott vs. Oranges; Kellyanne Conway speaks to Miami GOP; More negative mail in SD 40; Donald Trump at Hall of Presidents - SaintPetersBlog 06/27/2017 […] to have speaking role at Disney’s Hall of Presidents” via Terry Roen of Orlando Rising – The attraction features audio-animatronic figures of all U.S. presidents.
