Orlando, Florida -- Unable to afford escalating real estate prices in Washington DC, the US government is relocating to Disney World.
The move, which will include both houses of Congress, the executive branch, and the Supreme Court, is expected to have an immediate economic benefit.
"Disney World is positioned at a more southerly latitude than Washington, and that makes the debt ceiling considerably higher in Florida," said Pres. Obama in announcing the relocation, which is scheduled for September. "So that's one thing less we'll have to worry about for now."
Tough economic times have contributed to plummeting attendance at the Disney theme parks, resulting in cheap rent and plenty of room for all branches of government.
The U.S. Senate will occupy Fantasyland. "This is the perfect venue for a group of lawmakers who have been accused of not having a grip on reality, while at the same time having no imagination," noted Sen. Harry Reid. "Maybe I can hang with Johnny Depp on that Pirates of the Caribbean ride."
The rest of the Magic Kingdom will be reserved for the House of Representatives. "You can feel the magic in the air," said Rep. Michele Bachmann. "Our Tea Party members who are warlocks and witches will appreciate that."
A special pavilion will be built for the executive branch at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Called "Dr. Barack and Mr. Hyde's Budget Balancing Spectacular," the exhibit will feature the president battling rogue representatives, and switching personalities, while keeping his birth certificate valid.
The Supreme Court will conduct its trials in Disney's Animal Kingdom. The Justices will also be starring in a new show in the zoo-inspired park called "The Kangaroo Review."
After leading a Washington-based delegation to Disney World for a preview, Sen. John McCain expressed his enthusiasm for the relocation, saying: "Can I go on Space Mountain one more time before we leave? Please! Please!"
