Throughout the summer, you’ll be able to shop additional Donald Duck goodies from brands like Cakeworthy, Citizen, Forever 21, and more.

Donald’s journey and his relatable character antics have endeared him to fans across the globe, earning him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and adding his webbed footprints to the cement outside the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Mark June 9th on your calendar, as Disney’s Restoration and Preservation Team will release two newly restored classic Donald Duck shorts on Disney+. These animated treasures are directed by Disney Legend Jack Hannah and will delight both longstanding fans and newcomers alike.
