So it looks like President Barack Obama has won re-election to that office in 2012, and will be term limited, ending his term in election year 2016 and stepping down on Inauguration Day January 20, 2017.

That means his Audio-Animatronic figure which speaks as the incumbent President at Hall of Presidents, Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Orlando FL will not be changed by Disney.  Unless they and the President might agree on a re-voicing and making things different....  No announcements about that yet.  Just assume for now that nothing changes and the figure that is there stays through November 2016-January 20, 2017.

So.....

WDW trip planners....

If you haven't already seen the Pres. Obama figure at Hall of Presidents would you want to include this park attraction on a prospective tour of Magic Kingdom on your next visit to Orlando FL?

You can look this up on YouTube.com or generally on the Internet, to see what the President Obama figure is like and what it says.  It would be a spoiler if you do that, of course.  We also have some prior Topics and Polls about President Obama at Hall of Presidents within which are links to see the Audio-Animatronic figure there now.

In a way, the winner here is Disney: The Imagineers don't have to spend time or many making any changes to that attraction for four more years, so they can concentrate on marketing newly refurbished New Fantasyland.

Don't intend to see him if I go in the next four years. I know how hard the custodial cast members work, and they don't need to clean my puke up off the carpet. :barf:

I can respect the results of the Nov. 6th, 2012 election and that Pres. Obama is now re-elected but term-limited to serve one more four-year term.  But since the man in his first term was a camera hog and flew all over the place to show he was "working" as President, I feel there is no further reason to see him as an Audio-Animatronic speaking figure of incumbent President.  He was over-exposed in media in the first term, and we'll see him all over media in his second term, I can turn TV on any time and see him as President.  

IMHO: At WDW there are many NEW attractions, shows, features, eateries, even a whole new Land at Magic Kingdom.  I'd rather see the new stuff rather than a four-year old attraction with a four year old speaking robot who'll be there the next four years speaking which I can watch on You Tube any time I want at home, so I can skip hall of Presidents.  Since I also disagree politically with Pres. Obama I also have no intention of visiting the Hall of Presidents unless I can skip the Audio-Animatronic auditorium part and see a balanced exhibit of all the Presidents of the US in the overall exhibit who've served and then leave.

Incidentally Disney and Disney CEO Rogert Iger are campaign contributors to Obama, and it's known in the past four years Disney has done special promotional things even in the White House for the Obamas.  First Lady Michelle Obama and their two daughters were given a private showing at Disneyland of "World of Color", for security purposes since the crowd can be huge out there.  Pres. Obama has spoken at WDW at conferences, even in front of Cinderella's Castle, so it's very likely tourists will encounter his motorcade there coming or going as he might speak to other conferences or events there prior to his leaving office Jan. 20, 2017.

Hall of Presidents, BTW, is famous for parents of very young children (infants, toddlers, young pre-school-agers) for being both air conditioned and boring enough for that age group that they can power nap  :sleepy: in the main show...  cool.... dark..... cushioned seats..... closing eyes just for a minute.... then....  :sleepy:  Young children just don't understand or care for that level of attraction, so it's perfectly understandable.

He recently said to the press, "I'm not a dictator..."  Great THOR if he were, there would only be one animatronic doohickey left in HoP.  Barry.  When his no longer talks and only holds up his best golf score, travel expense record book collection and smiles, I might go back.  They really shouldn't update HoP so quickly.  Look how long it took for Disney to update and then down-date Tiki Birds!  Better if it were Hall of Past Presidents and just let George do all the talking so we could see what wooden false teeth looks like.  Or um Hall of Presidents on our Money cause we all know money talks.
