It’s a good day at work when you find yourself in the North Lawn of the White House. My assignment: attend the pardoning ceremony — where President Obama officially pardons the National Thanksgiving Turkey — and make sure the lucky bird and his alternate board United Turkey-1 (yes, that’s the official FAA name) for Los Angeles. I didn’t pull off this feat alone. I’m with an amazing team of Disneyland Cast Members who made sure this all happened without a hitch.
The turkeys, “Courage” and “Carolina” are on their way as we speak. Tomorrow “Courage” will star in the “Give a Day. Get a Disney Day” Thanksgiving Parade on Main Street, U.S.A at Disneyland park. He and the alternate, “Carolina,” will live out the rest of their days at Big Thunder Ranch. Take a look at today’s video from the White House and Dulles International Airport. Enjoy!
