President Obama’s likeness will be represented at the Disney Hall of Presidents. The life-size, audio-animatronic model of Obama will join the ranks of all presidents past with his spot at the attraction.

The “Robobama” will be the third talking president with original voice at the attraction, alongside robotics representations of President Clinton and President George W. Bush.

The new attraction renovations will include President Lincoln giving the full Gettysburg Address, and a speech by George Washington.

The Hall of Presidents is an inspirational Audio-Animatronic tribute to every American president, located in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom theme park.
