Move over, Mickey: The “Happiest Place on Earth” is about to welcome a very special visitor – all the way from the White House.

Michelle Obama is teaming to launch “Disney Magic of Healthy Living,” a nutrition initiative that complements the healthier lifestyle she champions with her own campaign, Let’s Move.

Also on board to encourage families to commit to healthier habits: Disney Channel regular Nick Jonas, 18, who will pal up with the First Lady and other Disney stars to promote fitness and better eating habits.

“I am thrilled to join Disney’s ‘Magic of Healthy Living’ effort and support the work these young people are doing to reach out to their peers and communicate this powerful message,” Mrs. Obama, who shoots hoops and gardens in the PSAs, said in a press release.

She adds: “I hope through programs like the ‘Magic of Healthy Living,’ young people are inspired to take control of their own health, fitness and nutrition and engage their families, schools and communities to do the same.”
