    Lauren from TN Asked

    My fiance has never been to Disney World before and he LOVES Donald Duck. We will be going to Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios during our trip. What are some Donald Duck things to do and see in those parks?

    Hi Lauren! Welcome to planDisney! Congratulations on your engagement! I love your question! Like your fiance, Donald Duck also happens to be my favorite Disney character! Let’s see where we can find Donald throughout the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    At EPCOT, the best place to see Donald featured is at Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros! Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, you’ll find Donald Duck in the flesh, excuse me, feathers, handling the hosting duties during breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Tusker House restaurant! You can also find Donald, as well as a few other feathered friends, on Discovery River as Donald headlines the Donald’s Dino Bash Flotilla which can be seen throughout the day! Finally, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can find Donald Duck holding one of the starring roles in Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and at the Mickey Shorts Theater (yes, everything is themed after Mickey’s shorts)!

    Lauren, you didn’t mention a visit to Magic Kingdom Park, but if you happen to have a Park Hopper ticket, you might want to pay a visit to this park! My favorite Donald Duck attraction is Mickey’s PhilharMagic! And while the name doesn’t lead one to think that this attraction is all about Donald Duck, he takes center stage from start to finish in this 3D show!

    One final tip, Lauren, is to consider dining at either Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort or Topolinos Terrace (for breakfast) at Disney’s Riviera Resort. Donald assists with hosting duties at both of these restaurants! Have your camera close at hand! The characters at these restaurants will come around to pose for physically distanced selfies with Guests!
