Latest on Enhancement to The Hall of Presidents at Magic Kingdom Park

Since the Magic Kingdom Park opened in 1971, The Hall of Presidents has brought together a one-of-a-kind look at the office of the President of the United States through film and the magic of Disney’s Audio-Animatronics technology. Despite some media reports to the contrary, President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993. We have been working closely with the current White House — just as we have with previous administrations — and the president’s recording session has been scheduled. The attraction will re-open in late 2017.

Whenever we refurbish one of our attractions, we take the opportunity to consider a broad range of enhancements. In this case, The Hall of Presidents is getting a new show, and a complete theater upgrade including a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system. The multi-screen viewing experience you may have seen in prior versions of the attraction is returning with an even wider vantage point of our country’s history.

Night of Joy Artist Spotlight: Danny Gokey

From time to time, we at the Disney Parks Blog like to showcase some of the artists who will be performing at Disney Night of Joy.

This week, we’re highlighting a relative newcomer to the Contemporary Christian Music scene – Danny Gokey.

The author of some of the most soul-provoking music in the industry right now, Gokey came to most of the public’s attention through his appearance on American Idol. His inspiring story of triumph over tragedy – along with a spectacular voice and emotional delivery – touched the hearts of the show’s viewers.

Since that “break,” Gokey has stormed through the industry with hit after hit like “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again,” “Hope In Front of Me”, “Rise”, “More Than You Think I Am.” His latest album Rise is debuted at #1 on the Christian Billboard chart and his newest single “The Comeback” is currently climbing the Christian music charts propelling the album to even more success.

We were honored to host Danny recently for a quick tour of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, where this year’s concerts will be held.

Tickets are now on sale for Disney Night of Joy 2017. Guest can check out nightofjoy.com or 407-W-DISNEY for tickets and information. Groups of 10 or more can click here or call 877-NITE-JOY to purchase group tickets and learn about group discounts and benefits.

A little reminder about this year’s talent: (Entertainment subject to change.)

  • Friday, Sept. 8 – MercyMe, TobyMac, Zach Williams, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey, Matt Maher, Colton Dixon, Rend Collective
  • Saturday, Sept. 9 – Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Kirk Franklin, Jordan Feliz, Crowder, Jeremy Camp, Tye Tribbett.
