    Hello there. I'm just curious about Donald's Dino-Bash in AK. It seemed to be back for a bit and still shows on the WDW site, but there are no times showing for the forseeable future. Is it on hold for a while?

    Hey, Robert, and welcome back to planDisney. I am so happy you returned with another fabulous character experience question. Let’s get you some details. 

    Currently, there are no show times for Donald’s Dino-Bash! in Dinoland U.S.A., at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park through the end of the year. This is likely because the entire area is being re-imagined and certain attractions will close for periods of time for Guest safety. While the website shows no dates listed to visit Donald Duck and “Dino” Chip and Dale, that does not mean they are “extinct.” I recommend you continue to check the Walt Disney World Resort website for a possible surprise return. If you really want to meet Donald then book a dining experience with him and his pals over at Tusker House Restaurant.

    planDisney Pro Tip In the past when attractions like Donald's Dino-Bash! temporarily close, sometimes you may find those characters on flotilla adventures around Discovery River. The best place to see them is on the walkway between Pandora and Africa. You can almost touch the flotilla if you stand under the small stone bridge. This is a great picture spot. I suggest taking a video and then going back to grab individual frame shots if you want a specific photo. We did this to capture a picture of Russel from Disney•PIXAR's UP.

    Robert, I hope this information helps you on your grand adventure in 8 days. It is so close! Please feel free to contact me directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
