Although Walt Disney was happy with how Great Moments with Mr.
Lincoln turned out, his original goal was something much more ambitious.
Hall of the Presidents would later become a reality at The Magic
TMK's Hall of the Presidents has been described as "Mr. Lincoln
on Steroids" by more than a few people. Instead of just one
presidential animatronic giving a speech, an entire stage full of
animatronic presidents (from George Washington to George W. Bush)
In 1994 (?) Bill Clinton was added and the Disney Company talked
the real Bill into recording a speech for the attraction. In 2001
George W. took the words out of Bill's mouth. It seems as long as
the Hall is open, this new tradition may give Florida visitors a
chance to see a living president... virtually. (Rumors say WDI would
like to turn this into an interactive theater presentation like
MuppetVision, though, so who knows how many more presidents will
become Disney robots.
Trivia: This attraction was originally planned for Disneyland
back when Liberty Square was going to be an expansion of Main Street
