Disney CEO Bob Iger quits Trump advisory team as ‘matter of principle’

June 1, 2017: Disney (DIS) CEO Bob Iger said he will step down from Trump’s business advisory council, protesting the president’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate deal.

“Protecting our planet and driving economic growth are critical to our future, and they aren’t mutually exclusive,” Iger said in a statement. “I deeply disagree with the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.”

He also posted his decision on Twitter, saying he’d resigned from Trump’s business council “as a matter of principle.”  Iger served on Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of business leaders who offer the president advice.

July 4, 2017:  HoP Still Closed

For 12 months: Signage outside the Hall of Presidents. (Jan -Dec 2017)

The Hall of Presidents show at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World closed in January 2017 and is still not scheduled to reopen yet. (Normally, it would reopen the last week in June right before the 4th of July holiday, about 6 months after taking office.)

Many people have wondered what role the new, very unpopular president would play in the Magic Kingdom attraction since he was elected.

On June 23, 2017, Disney announced it plans for Trump to speak.

“The same thing that we’ve done with other presidents, is the same plan we have for President Trump,” said Jacquee Wahler, vice president of communications. When asked if Trump would have a speaking role, Wahler said that he would.

6/27/2017:  Update from Disney Parks Blog:

Since the Magic Kingdom Park opened in 1971, The Hall of Presidents has brought together a one-of-a-kind look at the office of the President of the United States through film and the magic of Disney’s Audio-Animatronics technology. Despite some media reports to the contrary, President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993. We have been working closely with the current White House — just as we have with previous administrations — and the president’s recording session has been scheduled. The attraction will re-open in late 2017.

Whenever we refurbish one of our attractions, we take the opportunity to consider a broad range of enhancements. In this case, The Hall of Presidents is getting a new show, and a complete theater upgrade including a new sound system, lighting and high-definition projection system. The multi-screen viewing experience you may have seen in prior versions of the attraction is returning with an even wider vantage point of our country’s history.


Since Bill Clinton, every sitting president has recited a speech during the attraction.  However, since Trump is functionally illiterate and reads at a 4th grade level, it has proven difficult for Disney to get an audio from him.  They may end up using some pieced audio from a previous TV appearances.

Initially, the Walt Disney World website said the attraction would be closed between January 17th and June 29, 2017. No specific reopening date has been announced, but Disney Parks Blog says The Hall of Presidents will now reopen in “late 2017.”

The delay is because Trump has been “unavailable” to tape a 2 minute speech and he has yet to donate one of his personal Trump suits with an oversized red tie for the animatronic to wear.  They may end up having to buy a suit from Trump’s business in NYC for it to wear. (Hard to believe that a “billionaire” can’t afford to donate one of his suits to Disney!)

Rumor has it that Trump also didn’t approve of the animatronic sketches and wanted the avatar to look “thinner”.
