Obama just likes to take away any proof of people making a living.

Why in the sam hill is he going to Disney World, to give a speech??????

He can give speeches anywhere. What is the significance of Disney World in his political calculation?

Is it really worth it to Disney to put up with all of the disruption caused by a president’s visit?

Or, did things happen behind the scenes, and Disney was told that the president will show up, and that’s the end of the discussion????

Can you imagine ... having a trip planned, probably taken off work, maybe kids out of school, to go to Disney and then THIS happens. I'm sure there is going to be more inconvenience than just Main Street being closed. Obummer's going to lose some popularity if not votes .....

The rumor is The One is going to announce some regs to make it easier for foreign tourists to visit the USA. His Highness is showing his benevolence to the tourist industry in Florida.

Wow..I feel sorry for the people who paid alot of money to go to Disney then can’t access parts of the park for most of an entire day. Plus the money it will probably cost Disney....... Obama has to bring economic trouble whereever he goes...I wounder if he will try and unionize the workers and Occupy Disney??

Disney may want to accommodate the President. I suppose that's their option. But what sort of compensation are they offering to guests who made their travel plans months ago and now find themselves squeezed out of a day at a significant part of the park which was the principal reason for their visit to the Disney area?

What about the poor tourists who have planned for a year to be there? Essentially, they've just lost a day from the precious little time they have on vacation. The Obamas - all of them - are ungrateful, imposing, arrogant a-holes who could give a rat's Patootie about the common person. Bad enough it's hard to scrape together the funds to go on vacation, now the Halfrican and his tribe of professional moochers has to completely spoil it.

The SOB actually thinks this will make him look good promoting tourism like it will be the save all of our economy.One little thing done to make it easier for foreigners to visit is some how Obama getting a free Disney trip with the media promoting this like it is a big deal game changer.It is sick.

The article sounded like one can still go to MK and go to the non-Main Street parts.

so families which saved all year for a vacation in the magic kingdom are being screwed over by Captain Incompetent.

Obama is going to have a token family with him photo op but all in all this is going to be an MSNBC kneepad orgy of propaganda.

This has to be ridiculed now.

How many families are going to have their vacations laid waste for this dunce?

Mainstreet at the Magic Kingdom is the threshold to the other parts of the park.....

..this is where the boats, trams, etc pour out the tourists....

..it will be a great disruption to those who paid a lot of money to take their kids to Disney.

He did not do this during the time when the candlelight processional was happening. (CHRISTmas carols and the nativity story at epcot)

also he is not going to the america pavillion. He will probably go and admire himself at the hall of presidents.

BTW disney shares are on an up, they did not need odumbo. If anything how do we get AMERICANS to visit disny/orlando attractions.

A bunch of phoney characters milling around, offering to let you take a photo with them...and then there’s the Disney Characters.

The main reason for this trip is for the great photo op to give a speech with Cinderella’s castle as a backdrop. It also shows support for Disney’s unions which just signed a new contract with Disney. Not to mention just how gay friendly Disney is.... Screw everybody else, the common park goers, ground traffic around Orlando, Air traffic over Orlando, must get good photo....

I went to Epcot for the first time in almost 30 years and I as shocked Disney would do that Candlelight Processional show. I was expecting non-religious Rudolph the Raindeer songs. The show was amazing and got to give credit to Disney. I like the big angel on top of the big Christmas tree at Epcot. I wonder if that pissed off any of the Muzzies I saw there, hee hee.

Disney owns ABC-Obama. The majority of the performers at Disney are homosexuals. The kenyan Muslim is simply making a stump speech to his constituency, and his fellow girls.

Moochelle is just there for the food.

I was at Universal theme park in Orlando about 10 days ago. It was packed but not with “American” families.

On a different note, VP GHW Bush and his escapades almost ruined my trip to the Superbowl about 30 years ago. I empathize with these families that are planning a trip of a lifetime only to have it interrupted by 10 minutes of political dung.

He’s gonna go shut down the fabulous main entrance attraction of a popular tourist event for almost a day, to promote tourism

kapish?

No doubt he’s going over to plug some HUNDRED BILLION light rail system designed to move people from Tanpa to Disney world 20 minutes faster than they get there now by driving, and claim he is creating JOBS

And maybe also to have a quickie with Goofy
