(NEXSTAR) – After several months of work, President Joe Biden’s animatronic likeness is nearly ready for The Hall of Presidents display at Disney World.
The nation’s 46th president will take center stage in a dark suit and red-and-blue striped tie when the show debuts in August.
“Just as Walt envisioned, creative teams have been busy programming an Audio-Animatronics replica of the President, pairing it with a delivery of the presidential oath of office recorded at the White House by President Biden himself just for the attraction,” Disney said in a news release.
On Monday, Disney shared a sneak peak of the show, which will also have some signature Biden touches on display, including a pair of aviator sunglasses and Amtrak tickets on a table near the president. There is also a vase full of peach blossoms, representing his home state of Delaware.
For those wondering what will happen to the figure of former President Donald J. Trump, Disney confirmed that it will be positioned on stage among those of other past presidents.
Then-President Trump celebrated the figure’s arrival in the Hall of Presidents, tweeting, “I love it!”
The Hall of Presidents opened in Magic Kingdom Park in 1971 and “has brought to life the heritage of the United States and shared the symbolic importance and uniqueness of the office of the President,” according to a Disney news release.

TCSO says deputies with the Lake Patrol Unit found Jacob Martinez, 23, from Donna, Texas during a shoreline search in the early morning hours nearly five days later. Martinez was found July 15 just north of the area where he was reportedly last seen, TCSO says.
That's according to a report released Monday by the University of Texas at Austin: which used trending data, in addition to vaccination rates, to project how the disease may spread through October 1. UT's COVID-19 scenario projections for Austin, Texas divides the possibilities based on if precautions continue as they currently are, if Austin enacts stricter guidelines and if residents actually comply with strict measures.
