ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Officials with the Disneyland theme park in California said the Thanksgiving turkey pardoned by the president will not appear at the park this year.

The theme park said the turkey, which in previous years served as a grand marshal of the Thanksgiving parade, will not appear at Disneyland this year following its pardon by President Barack Obama, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

"This year, Disney officials decided that the turkeys don't fit with the parks' new promotional theme, called Let the Memories Begin, which is based on visitors' memories," Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said.
