Today was a historic day here in the United States. The 46th President, Joe Biden, has been sworn into office on January 20, 2021. While we awoke to find Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents closed for refurbishment, we are also learning that a Disney World spokesperson has confirmed the 46th President will be joining The Hall of Presidents, debunking a Muppets rumor.


Hall Of Presidents

If you hadn’t heard, there was a rumor floating around that The Hall of Presidents could be replaced by a Muppets attraction. There was absolutely no source and no word from Disney that this rumor would be brought to fruition. As shared by OrlandoSentinel: “A Disney World spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday morning (Jan. 20) that the attraction will be updated with a Biden figure.” Thankfully, this debunks the Muppets rumor.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
