Former President Barack Obama has revealed he was once booted from the happiest place on earth.

President Obama, who is currently rallying in Anaheim California for seven Democratic congressional candidates shared with crowds the time he was asked to leave Disneyland for ‘smoking on the gondolas’ while in college.

“I went to Disneyland twice when I was younger,” Obama recalled at the rally. “The first time was when I was 11 years old. Now, there is no better time to go to Disneyland than when you’re 11 years old. I lived in Hawaii, so this was my first big trip to the mainland.

The next time Obama visited the theme park was during his days at Occidental College when he returned to Disneyland to see Kool & the Gang perform, however things didn’t go so well for the future president.

“After the concert…you could still hang out in the park, so we went into the gondolas. I’m ashamed to say this….but a few of us were smoking on the gondolas.”

“These were cigarettes people. Terrible thing. They do – they kill you. I stopped.”

Obama told the crowd Disneyland police officers escorted Obama and his friends from the park, revealing, “I was booted from Magic Kingdom!”
