Happy Birthday President Carter

Plains, Georgia. He is the first president to be born in a hospital.
In 1976, President Carter appeared at Disney World for the International Chamber of Commerce 26th
Conference and Convention. His speech was made in front of Cinderella Castle. The
private event coincided with Disney’s debut of concept art for EPCOT Center.

In May 1982, Carter became the first U.S. President to take a “running tour” of
Disneyland when he jogged through the Magic Kingdom prior to the public opening time.
