It looks like public previews did, in fact, begin today at the Magic Kingdom’s Hall of Presidents. A fairly detailed report has been posted on the WDWMagic boards, and it gives a sense of the show’s flow. It certainly sounds like an improvement, and it’s exciting to see Mr. Lincoln get back to his roots.
What’s really interesting is the report that Bob Iger and Jay Rasulo attended the 5 p.m. show today with Magic Kingdom V.P. Phil Holmes; while it’s impressive that Iger made the trip to Orlando to check out the show, it’s unknown whether setting foot in a theme park caused Rasulo’s face to melt like the climax of Raiders of the Lost Ark or whether any photos were taken to actually confirm the existence of Phil Holmes.
