On July 3rd, over 1000 immigrants from around the world will become United States citizens just in time to celebrate the Fourth of July with us! This is a semi-regular occurrence in our country, but this one is extra special. Why? Because their ceremony is taking place on Main Street, USA in Walt Disney World, Florida! All of the future citizens will gather on Main Street and give their oath in front of the officials, Disney guests and Cinderella's Castle. After all of that excitement, they also get another special surprise! The newly sworn-in citizens will get a special preview of the New and Improved Hall of Presidents, which is scheduled to reopen after a long refurbishment period on July 4th.
I have recently had a friend and teacher of mine become a United States citizen and the excitement of the ceremony itself was almost too much for her. I cannot imagine the thrill that must come with not only becoming a citizen but at the Happiest Place on Earth!
