An article has appeared in the New York Times detailing the new Presidnet Obama Animatron that is set to debut this year at the Hall of Presidents.

Very interesting article - thanks for sharing it. I think this article is the first one I have seen confirming that Obama will be in the HOP.

Question... what made you think he wouldn't be included?

I think the more important question is "Will he have a blackberry/iPhone in his hand?"
Professionals admit to the problem. Alcoholics claim they have no problem.

Although it will be cool to see Barack Obama in the Hall of Presidents, I imagine he has more pressing issues than recording a bit for a theme park attraction.

I guess that shows how well Disney is engrained in American culture.

I've really only seen this show 2 times. Once, on my first trip to the Magick Kingdom, and the 2nd time was when bush was added. I suspect when i see it with obama it will be the last time i do for the next 4-8 years :)

"The president supplied not just his measurements, but he also recorded that speech (which was initially drafted by a Disney writer) and yet another recitation of the oath of office, this one in Disney high-definition sound..."

Small item about this line from the article. The oath of office recording was recorded when the president had to officialy re-do the Oath of office. On inauguration(sp) day the Oath got messed up. Because of that, the president had to re-do the Oath. The Imagineering guys took advantage of that and go their recording.

The other rumour I heard was the Lincoln was going to stand up and recite the entire Gettysburg Address.

Can't wait for this re-opening
