Since it's on a weekend, I think I'll try to stop by assuming I'm free. I'm not sweating it if I don't since Hall of Presidents is one of the easiest attractions in WDW to get into in general.

I went there this morning and I was actually surprised at just how many AP holders showed up for the preview. Below are links to the 3 part video I took while I was there. Just a note, when I was at the attraction they never said you couldn't record it. However, I've seen another clip that another person who was there at a different time today took and they where super strict about no recording of ANY kind. So I'm not sure on how strict Disney is gonna be, if they even really care, about my videos of it on YouTube. In any case, I think the update is awesome. Morgan Freeman is the man! The projections are great in all their HD goodness and Obamatronic looks just like him, at least as far as resemblance goes. They could have made the mouth movements a bit more life like but still in general very good update. Now as promised, here are the video links. I shot it with a standard definition Flip camera so the video quality isn't that great, but it still sounds pretty good.

I saw it yesterday also and thought it was quite good. It seems they upgraded almost everything as the animatronics seemed better than the last time I saw it (although it was quite a few years ago so maybe I just don't remember). I also heard from a CM manager at DHS that the building's guts only has room for 2 more Presidents before needing MAJOR overhaul to make add'l room.....

I didn't realize the changes were this extensive.

Seems cool.

Wow, so busy. If I remember rightly it was a lot quieter when we went in there. I'll certainly put this back on our todo list for the next trip.
Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic
