    Nice....can't wait to hear their review. I am really looking forward to the updated HOP. Politics aside, it will be really special to see how Disney recognizes the historical significance of the past election and ties it into the show.

    I would love it if Obamatronic and Washingtronic get into a fist fight on stage. That would be fun and a whole lot mure enjoyable that a boring History of the USA 101 class.

    The much more marketable fight would be between Obamatronic and Reagantronic....I really didn't mind the format of the HOP. Truth be told alot of people in this country could use the lesson.

    Hopefully though, the updated HOP will have a fresher and more engaging feel to it than the former.

    Obamatronic previewed today.

    Obama played for the first few selected guests today. I did not see the show nor care to, but some of you might be interested.
    Here is what my sources had to say...
    "We went to the preview of Hall of Presidents today. Disney did a fantastic job. Obama is great as is the new movie."
    Go there and enjoy it. And please... hold your applause until the presentation has ended, to keep the dignity of the show and that of those clowns up on the stage, intact.

    There was a cast preview this morning, followed by an AP preview, followed by an hour or so of soft preview for anyone. I went and saw, it was very nice.

    What was different from the past show?
    How did Obama look, did he interact with any Presidents?
    Did the format of the show change?

    AttractionsMagazine.com also wrote a review and (against Disney's request for no recording of the show, it seems) got video of the segment of the show that features President Obama. He recites the oath of office and speaks briefly about the American Dream:

    Thanks. It sounds great. Looks like Disney really hit a home-run with the revamped show. I'm glad they incorporated the significance of Obama's election into the show.

    An acknowledgement of Reagan will also leave conservatives happy.

    Re: Hall of Presidents Open?

    The only negative I have seen so far, and it's not even a negative, is that Battle Hymn of the Republic is not used as the finale, and America the Beautiful is used instead.

    I am getting more and more excited about this the more I read about it.

    Re: Hall of Presidents Open?

    Today were cast member previews as well as DVC and annual passholder previews, but they weren't filling shows so they opened it up to the public. I have never been a fan of Hall of Presidents, but I have to say the retooled show is much more entertaining. I think for starters, Morgan Freeman is a better announcer and the digital projection was nice because the old film flaws were annoying to me. The tweaks made to Lincoln and the new Obama AA are wonderful.

    Like others, the only complaint that I had wasn't that the music at the end was changed, but that the end note doesn't have the "chill factor" that you used to get there or that can be found at The American Adventure.
