    My family just visited Disney Springs for the Munchling Donald bucket and it was sold out! Will this bucket restock? Hoping we have a chance to get one for our next visit.

    Welcome to planDisney, Matthew!

    We have a birthday to celebrate! That easily endangered duck is 90 years old, but let me tell you, he doesn't look it! We've loved him since the beginning for always getting into trouble and then losing his temper. And while he doesn't typically wear pants, you can't help but be charmed by that bowtie each and every time. My favorite experience at the Walt Disney World Resort involving Donald is Mickey's Philharmagic. Don't let the title fool you, this attraction is all about Donald! Have you ever noticed that after Donald (spoiler alert) gets launched across the theater and crashes through the wall on the other side, you can actually see him in the gift shop on the way out? Look for him next time in all his angry glory. I mean, it definitely wasn't his fault that everything went awry after he put that Sorcerer Hat on that Mickey explicitly told him not to! How could he resist?

    Limited edition popcorn buckets are often spectacularly themed, but they are also incredibly popular. While they are typically restocked, it's hard to predict when that will happen. So I'll have my fingers crossed for you when you visit the resort next time. And don't worry, there are plenty of merchandise pieces commemorating this zany duck. There's even a Donald Duck Popcorn Disney Munchling Plush that you can grab at the Disney Store that actually smells like popcorn!

    Now you've got me thinking about all the ways you can celebrate Donald for his 90th at the resort. Let's see if I can name them all!

    1. Meet Donald in the Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT and (typically) by Echo Lake in Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can also meet Dino Donald at Donald's Dino-Bash! in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Astounding Donaldo at Pete's Silly Sideshow in Magic Kingdom Park!
    2. Eat with Donald at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort, a beach-ready Donald at Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe in Disney's Beach Club Resort, sculptor Donald during Breakfast à la Art at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at Disney's Riviera Resort, or, my favorite, Safari Donald at Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
    3. Fantasy Faire is not the only merchandise location to feature our fine-feathered friend. There's also Donald's Double Feature at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.
    4. Not only is he featured in Mickey's Philharmargic, but he's pretty much the star of the show in the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in EPCOT.
    Matthew, I'm running out of space to name the rest, but it'll just be a fun scavenger hunt for the next time you're at the resort to spot how many other places you can find him! If you have any other questions, feel free to send them my way.

    This is hot stuff,
