This week we celebrated President’s Day. But every day in Magic Kingdom Park, the leaders of the United States of America are celebrated at the Hall of Presidents. Here’s a look at the original lineup of presidents from December 1971.
Showcasing over 220 years of history in just 25 minutes, the Hall of Presidents has added seven presidents since opening in 1971 as one of the original Magic Kingdom Park attractions during President Nixon’s term in office.
Fun fact: President Obama is the 44th president. So, why are there only 43 presidents on stage? Grover Cleveland’s to blame. He served two non-consecutive terms as both the 22nd and 24th President of the United States.
