Walt Disney World (DIS) - Get Report confirmed via the Disney Parks Blog that the President Donald Trump animatronic figure to be featured in its Hall of President's attraction will indeed have a speaking role.
Since Trump's victory in November, Disney fans have wondered what exactly the refurbished Hall of President's will look like, considering the president's less then eloquent speaking prowess and his often inflammatory comments.
There have been numerous reports that the Trump animatronic would not speak when the updated version of the attraction reopens later this year.
"Despite some media reports to the contrary, President Trump will have a speaking role in The Hall of Presidents, like every president since 1993. We have been working closely with the current White House - just as we have with previous administrations - and the president's recording session has been scheduled," the Disney Parks blog said.
The Hall of Presidents is a theater experience located in Disney's Magic Kingdom park, showcasing American history from the country's founding to the present. In the pre-1993 version of the show only Presidents Washington and Lincoln would stand and address the audience.
In the early 90s the attraction was revamped and every robotic president since Bill Clinton would rise and speak to the audience.
What's Hot On TheStreet
The stock market may be overvalued: Now may be the time to pay extra attention to red-hot tech stocks such as Apple (AAPL) - Get Report and Facebook (FB) - Get Report . As TheStreet first reported Tuesday afternoon, asset valuations are somewhat "rich" by standard metrics, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said in London during a conversation about economic issues with British Academy President Lord Nicholas Stern. Yellen's comments on equity valuation and bank strength closely mirrored Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer's from an IMF event held earlier in the day.
The iPhone has changed how you make money: TheStreet's Scott Gamm is out with a piece that will really get you thinking. Apple's iPhone will turn 10 years old on Thursday. The device not only turned Apple into one of the world's most valuable companies, helping to boost its stock price more than 700%, it also changed the way we invest and trade stocks Gamm points out.
In fact, the original iPhone -- and the current versions -- have an internal stocks app, allowing users to check the broader market indexes and individual stock prices. Having this in your pocket was a big deal 10 years ago.
"I think it's actually made the life for a typical investor much easier," Angelo Zino, an analyst with CFRA Research, told TheStreet. "I think they've been able to tap news flows much quicker."
