Biden makes debut in Disney’s Hall of Presidents
President Biden is making his Disney debut — his animatronic likeness is now a part of the amusement park’s famed Hall of Presidents.
The figure was unveiled at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida this week.
In the exhibit, the robot-like Biden is heard reciting the presidential oath of office. Disney said the audio was recorded by the 46th commander in chief at the White House specifically for the attraction.

The animatronic Biden took “months” to create, according to Disney, and features details including peach blossoms representing his home state of Delaware and a pair of aviators to capture his signature style.
Former President Trump’s animatronic was reportedly moved to the back of the display, among other ex-executive mansion residents, in order for Biden’s to take center stage. The Trump animatronic — which was mocked after being unveiled in 2017 — reportedly required live security guards to protect it.
The Hall of Presidents has been at Magic Kingdom since the park opened in 1971.
