Citizenship Ceremony at WDW


Friday, July 3rd, 2009, more than 1,000 immigrants from more than 100 countries gathered on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom, to be sworn in as American citizens. The new citizens took the Oath of Allegiance to the United States during a morning ceremony hosted by Disney Parks and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Actor/director Andy Garcia, a naturalized citizen born in Cuba, addressed the new Americans before many of them previewed the Hall of Presidents, reopening July 4. The attraction has been closed since Election Day last November for a makeover that included installation of a lifelike Audio-Animatronics figure based on President Barack Obama.

Is there a better place to become an American citizen? I think not!! Happy 4th of July everyone!
