Donald Trump being added to Disney World's Hall of Presidents

Along with moving into the White House, Donald Trump is joining all of the other presidents as a permanent resident of Walt Disney World in Orlando.

Among the more popular attractions at Walt Disney World is the Hall of Presidents, which showcases audio-anamatronic versions of each of the nation's presidents in a multimedia showcase.

The show dates to the opening of Disney World in 1971, and has been retooled with the inauguration of each new president since 1993 after Bill Clinton was inaugurated. It was updated in 2001 to add George W. Bush, and again in 2009, adding Barack Obama.

Disney says the Hall of Presidents will be closed from January 17 through June 29, 2017 in order to add Donald Trump to the Hall and to update the program.

The 700-seat theater is housed in a building that is designed to resemble Philadephia's Independence Hall in the Liberty Square section of the Magic Kingdom.

The original show is based on the "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" show at Disneyland in California.
