    I'm pretty excited about seeing the Obama animatronic. I saw him live during one of his campaign stops. This will be the next best thing. Also happy about Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address. I just visited Gettysburg with my son last summer and really enjoyed touring that area. It will be great hearing Lincoln speak the words himself. I enjoy the "boring" attractions. (according to my son , boring attractions are Hall of Presidents, Carousel of Progress, American Adventure) These are some of my favorites.

    I am so excited about this! I'd heard (pre-election) that they were considering cutting out the speech by the sitting President from the new version. This seemed a pity since our President is a skilled speaker. And I, an admitted history nerd, LIKE the speech (no matter who delivers it). Can't wait to see it next month.
