Just a few weeks after her husband visited the Magic Kingdom, it was First Lady Michelle Obama's turn to go to Walt Disney World. Mrs. Obama joined several Disney Channel and Disney XD stars at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to exercise with 1,500 local children. The event was part of the First Lady's Let's Move! campaign to end childhood obesity. She is also partnering with the Disney Magic of Healthy Living, which works with parents to raise happy kids who are living healthy lifestyles. Kicking things off was Perry the Platypus from animated hit "Phineas and Ferb" introducing a new dance called "The Platypus Walk." Attendees participated in soccer drills, learned how to cook healthy foods and saw how simple activities at home can lead to a fun and healthy life.
