Quackers For Donald Duck!

Oh phooey! 

Donald Duck has been featured in every Disney On Ice production since Walt Disney’s World On Ice debuted in 1981, and we go absolutely quackers for this lovable curmudgeon! In fact, we love him so much the first Disney On Ice show to travel internationally was Happy Birthday Donald! Which opened in Japan in 1986. 

Unmistakeably Donald

From his iconic voice to his unmistakable waddle, Donald’s passion adds excitement to every adventure he goes on with his pals. In fact, we bet you’ve been at Disney On Ice and thought to yourself, “I wonder if I could shake my tail feather like Donald?” We definitely have, so we’ve enlisted the help of Creative Director Patty Vincent and a few performers to show us how it’s done.
