Obama Disney World Trip Is Our Dream Come True (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We love the Obamas. We love the royals. We also love Disney (natch). So we really can't think of anything more fantastic than a presidential trip to Disney's Magic Kingdom.

President Obama is in Disney World today to talk about tourism. As Women's Wear Daily reported, the commander-in-chief is addressing barriers to U.S. tourism, including visa processing delays, through a new "travel and competitiveness" initiative.

He announced the details of the project at the Disney theme park, speaking from a podium positioned in the shadow of the Magic Kingdom castle. There was also a meet-and-greet with all the loyal subjects -- er, constituents who had come out to cheer the prince -- er, president.

Speaking on the topic of increased tourism, Obama said:

"Every year, tens of millions of tourists from all over the world come and visit America... and the more folks who visit America, the more Americans we get back to work. We need to help businesses all across the country grow and create jobs; compete and win. That's how we're going to rebuild an economy where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded and where anyone can make it if they try."

Good point. But we really wish he had read it off a scroll and opened with the line, "Hear ye, hear ye..." And while we're at it, we also wish he'd been wearing a more regal ensemble -- maybe Prince William could give him some tips?
