    Rumors are it's being converted to digital. That's what I've read at least.

      Sounds great to me! Hopefully, it is more than a rumor! :thumbup:

        I hope so too. I'm excited about this refurb, but I'm also excited they are keeping the current movie, as I think it's well done. I also think the narrator has a great voice that makes me almost forget how great Maya Angelou was in the previous incarnation of the attraction narration.

          How are they going to keep the old film if the 3 speeches put together are longer? Some editing will have to be done if that's the case. My wish list:

          -New film in the spirit of the original. The current one is a terrible run through of America history (I'm sure the issue of slavery wasn't he only thing that happened in America's 230+ years of existence) and doesn't say anything about what a President's duty is or why these men were great in the past (aside form maybe Lincoln).

          -Bring back Lincoln's original speech in some form, with the original audio tracks used form the World's Fair.

          -If the current president must talk I'm glad it's his own words (sorta) and not some Disney script
          I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

            Umm...the show will be longer.

            The theater is HUGE and hardly (if ever) fills to capacity. They can afford to make it longer and put more people into the theater for each showing.

              Orlando Sentinel 31 October 2008:

              " Text size:

              Renovations to bring Disney World's Hall of Presidents into 21st century

              Scott Powers |Sentinel Staff Writer October 31, 2008 Barack Obama or John McCain -- here's one more issue for voters to consider: Which one would they rather listen to at Walt Disney World in the Magic Kingdom's Hall of Presidents show?

              One of them will get to address visitors each day in the theme park once the animatronic attraction undergoes a renovation.

              To make room for a new, robotic version of the 44th president of the United States, Disney will close the 37-year-old Hall of Presidents after today for an extended refurbishment. The show will stay shuttered for more than eight months so Disney can update the hall's aging light, sound, mechanical, projection and show systems, just as the company has done in recent years with other "classic" Magic Kingdom attractions such as It's A Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion.

              "We're about to get a new president. And so, since we have to shut down the show anyway to welcome No. 44, we're going to take the opportunity to . . . refurbish the attractions and the facility and also kind of wave the magic wand around a little bit," said Pam Fisher, senior show writer for Walt Disney Imagineering."
