Someday your dream will come. 

 

For Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park in Orlando, the dream of having an audio animatronic President Obama comes true on the Fourth of July.

 

The White House today posted a video on its website of the President in March taping an introduction that his image will deliver at the reopened Hall of Presidents starting Saturday.

 

 

Obama taped his oath of office and a short statement.

“The American dream is as old as our founders but as timeless as our hopes. It is reborn every day in the hearts of ever child who wakes up in a land of limitless possibilities,” he says as part of it.

Although all 43 presidents are shown at the Hall of Presidents, only three speak: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and, starting Saturday, Barack Obama.

 

Obama also taped a short introduction to the exhibit, making him only the third president to do so. Others were President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush .
