Disney is adding President-elect Donald Trump to one of its theme park exhibits following his victory in the 2016 presidential race, according to a new report.

An animatronic version of Trump will be added to Disney World’s Hall of Presidents attraction, News 13 said Wednesday.

{mosads}News 13 said Trump’s addition to the exhibit carries on a tradition of adding each successive president following their election.

President Obama was added in 2009, it said, while former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton first appeared in 2001 and 1993, respectively.

News 13 reported that the Hall of Presidents will be closed for six months in early 2017 so engineers can assemble an animatronic Trump and rework the attraction. The Hall of Presidents is a staple of the Magic Kingdom, opening with the park in 1971.

Trump shocked the world early Wednesday by winning the White House over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The billionaire’s victory was unexpected, as Clinton had led by about 3 points in the national polling averages as Election Day dawned Tuesday.

Trump’s achievement capped off a big night for Republicans, with his party also keeping its House and Senate majorities.
