Hall of Presidents Down since 9:30 am. CM's not sure when it'll be back.
Even President's need a Holiday..And today seems perfect.
As soon as President Obama get done his rounds of golf with Tiger Woods he will be back to give his speech at the HoP. Thank you for your patience.
And to think on a day like today (President's Day) it should be opened and people should be recommending to guests "visit HOP today cause it's Presidents day". I know it's a lame reason why you should ride/watch it, but main point I'm trying to make here is that it should not be shut down on President's day out of all the days in the year this is the one day that it should be open and working properly.
Hmmm...it's like 10,000 spoons, when all you need is a knife. Ironic.
Didn't even realize the irony of it being closed on Presidents Day. Hope it opens later.
That's a shame because this is a perfect attraction for days like today probably is, with the park being so crowded. A nice escape from the madness. And, of course, there would be no better or more appropriate day than today to see it.
Yeah - every attraction goes down for some period of time everyday I'm sure.
My DH and I had just had a conversation about how many parents do you think we drag there kids in because its Presidents day.... Very ironic...
Oh my! That's odd. Happy President's Day everyone!
Ah, forever my mom's favorite attraction.
That is so ironic. For the hall of residents to be closed on Presidents' Day...
Love that attraction but last time I was there people were being beyond rude, I understand we are all enabled to our political opinions but when it came time for Obama's part to speak in the show a rude parent thought it would be funny to boo. Needless to say me and a couple of other people in the audience were more than peeved has anyone else experienced this during the hall of presidents?
When that rude parent left to exit, you should've booed him. I don't like Obama as a president but I still like what they did with him in the attraction and he has a nice speaking part in the show. Seems like a cool guy too. Funny how WDW is supposed to be our escape from the real world whether it be from politics,work,etc. I guess those days are behind us. Plus, WDW is known to be a heavily conservative base (George should be concerned if enough people know and aren't in approval of it). Anyhow away from politics, did this happen the last time you visited this attraction?
Just FYI, It was operating earlier from what I could tell. Just technical Issues I assume
Yeah it was the last time I was there and I feel like regardless of whether you like him or not as a president being respectful is still important and I guess Walt Disney world is still an escape from that however adding new presidents to the hall does detract from that escapism I suppose its still a nice touch though.
The most ironic part of that song is that Alanis Morrisette doesn't know what irony is.
We experienced that when Bush was President too. It peeved me at the time. I'm not surprised it happens now with Obama. Although each of us has varying opinions regarding our leaders and we definitely have the right to voice them, I think it's important that we have respect for the Office (and for others). Even if you don't like the current President (I don't for example), it's rude to be vocal about it at an attraction like HoP.
It's a shame the attraction was down for President's Day though. A good day to visit The American Adventure over at EPCOT. A superior attraction in my opinion although seeing all the Presidents at HoP is pretty neat.
Not to mention illogical, as none of the presidents are capable of hearing you, let alone care what you say about them.
Though I was lucky the last two times I went as nobody said anything.
