    The Hall of Presidents doesn't address politics. It addresses the respect for our presidents, without regard to political party, position, or affiliation. This is something that Disney does well, and is sorely lacking in American society.

    Re: Obamatronic previewed today.

    I also read some very good reviews on the show. I hope to see it next time I visit the Magic Kingdom.

    Re: Obamatronic previewed today.

    I just wish the guests visiting the attraction would refrain from booing the presidents. I think that's so tacky... I hope with the new show, that behavior stops. I'm looking forward to seeing it on my next trip. I have to say, I love the "edutainment" side of Disney, and wish they did more of that.

    The new film sounds like a real crowd pleaser, as does the Obamatronic. Does the AA come equiped with a teleprompter?

    Disneyland's Great Empty Theater Moments With Abraham Lincoln should be so lucky. Rude guests booing the presidents are better than no audience at all.

    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.
    You should go see the show TDLfan. You complain about WDW a lot, mostly because it deserves it, but this is a case of them doing a great job.

    Re: Obamatronic previewed today.

    I will get to see the show sooner or later. I am just not making a special trip to the park to see it. I will get around when I get around. I am awared of the positive reviews and they even have a small report on the front page of the Orlando Sentinel today, plus some small report was done in our local channel 6 news. Since it is not a secret how I feel about politics and reality-based attractions in a DL-style park (Sorry Walt), I am willing to review and offer positive critique if I like what I see.

    Jack of Allears Net is the most savy and reliable person any Disney fan could possibly meet and get information from about Disney. He's a great guy and very good personal friend. I highly recommend everyone to check out his blogs.

    I strongly disagree with this. Out of sheer respect, I would rather people ignore the attraction and have it close than to sit through the booing and popularity contest the HoP has become. I have skipped it many times because of this fact. It doesn't happen 100% of the time, but enough that I worry if it will.

    With that being said, I am glad the new presentation is getting such positive feedback and am looking forward to seeing it in a couple of weeks.

    I was surprised that nobody booed during the very crowded preview I attended yesterday. The majority of the crowd was your average park guest. I overheard many on the way in asking cast members what this "ride" was.

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

    Was the Battle Hymn ever used there? I believe that the Battle Hymn was used in the Disneyland Lincoln show.

    It always was in HoP, however I think it makes sense to go even if it will be missed by me.

    My only complaint is the cheesey American Flag projection at the end replacing the matte effect of the sky becoming the American flag. The older version was much more impressive and less tacky.

    However everything else I have seen have been very impressed with. Several hundreds times better than the previous version.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    Ok that's just my biggest pet peeve. It just bugs me to no end when people call attractions that are shows, "rides".

    /soapbox


    *ahem*

    I'll probably check it out once to see Obama but I'll still probably catch a quick nap during the movie. Morgan Freeman is cool, but Samuel L Jackson would make everyone shut up and pay attention.
