Donald Duck takes center stage this weekend as his 85th birthday is celebrated. Donald was introduced in the Silly Symphony, The Wise Little Hen, on June 9, 1934.
Here are a few ways to honor our main duck this weekend, and beyond, in Disneyland.
The magic of Disney animation comes to life in the 3D movie musical “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other favorite Disney characters. As Donald prepares the orchestra for Mickey, he comes across the conductor’s baton and Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat. A little magic goes a long way and proceedings go awry as Donald is unexpectedly plunged into a high-definition 3D dream world and you’re taken along for the ride!
Step aboard the Miss Daisy, Donald’s colorful boat in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland park. You’ll see Donald’s favorite photos, his seaworthy rain gear and where he sleeps below deck. Don’t forget to ring the boat bell and pull the ship’s whistle!
Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast:
At Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, Donald brings beachy fun to Disney’s PCH Grill for breakfast and brunch! Catch some waves on the dance floor with Donald, Daisy, and Stitch as you enjoy an all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast buffet.
This Sunday, PCH Grill is celebrating Donald’s birthday with celebratory moments each hour! Learn more about this breakfast and brunch on the Disneyland website or call (714) 781-DINE.
