Donald Trump not only lives in the White House; he now lives at Disney World too — a robotic version of him at least.

After a yearlong closure for renovations, Walt Disney World in Orlando reopened the Hall of Presidents exhibit at the Magic Kingdom. In addition to updated lighting, sound, and content, the park also added the current sitting president, Donald J. Trump.

If the rumors are true, The Office will return to the small screen for the 2018-2019 season.
