Happy Birthday Donald Duck!

Fans of all ages look forward to meeting the famous Donald Duck when visiting the Disney theme parks. Known for his fiery temper, humorous voice, and lovable personality, Donald Duck is one of the most iconic Disney characters of all time. Whether you're in Magic Kingdom, Epcot, or Animal Kingdom, you're sure to sneak a peak of this beloved character. Since June 9th is Donald's birthday, it's the perfect time to pay a visit and make lasting memories. Grab your camera and an autograph book and plan your Disney trip with AAA Travel.


In Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom Park, head to Pete's Silly Side Show at Storybook Circus to meet with Donald Duck and some of his friends. Here, Donald plays the role of snake charmer, The Astounding Donaldo, while his best girl Daisy appears as mysterious fortune teller, Daisy Fortuna. The gang is ready to join the circus so come along and join the fun. Be sure to check the park schedule for showtimes under the Big Top.


When visiting Magic Kingdom, be sure to stop by Mickey's PhilharMagic for an adventure starring Donald Duck. This 3D fantasy show takes Donald Duck into a dreamworld of famous Disney musical sequences. Songs like, "Be Our Guest," from Beauty and the Beast and "Part of Your World," from the Little Mermaid play as you are transported to each movie setting. Light splashes of water and other fun surprises immerse you into the adventure.

At Epcot's World Showcase, say Hola to Donald as you explore the base of an Aztec pyramid in Mexico. Here you will find El Pato Donald wearing a colorful sombrero, ready to pose for pictures. After finishing his concert tour with the Three Caballeros, Donald is certainly in the mood for fun. Bring home memories with Donald by purchasing Memory Maker, which features unlimited digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass pictures and videos.


While in Epcot, take a boat ride through the Mexico Pavillion and float along to live-action footage of the people and places of Mexico, inspired by the film, The Three Caballeros. The Gran Fiesta Tour stars Panchito, the Mexican charro rooster, and Jose Carioca, the Brazilian parrot, as they search for Donald Duck on a fun-filled ride. You may see Donald climbing the Mayan pyramid steps in Chichen Itza or diving off a cliff in Acapulco; he could pop up anywhere on this grand adventure.


If you are planning to spend time in Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you can meet Donald Duck in Dinoland U.S.A.  Stop by Cretaceous Trail for a prehistoric photo op that will serve as a special memory for years to come. Whether you're a fan of fossils or not, Donald will be happy you stopped by.
