Get ready to quack with glee! In celebration of Donald Duck’s 90th birthday, Disney cast members around the globe took part in an extraordinary rubber duck extravaganza. The tradition, which started with a duck race in the waters of “it’s a small world” at Disneyland, has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon now celebrated at Hong Kong Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Disneyland Resort. This year, the festivities were bigger, better, and more duck-tastic than ever!

At Hong Kong Disneyland, the celebrations took on a creative twist. Teams participated in a scavenger hunt and a rubber duck fashion contest honoring Donald’s big milestone. Winnie, a cast member with a passion for knitting, wowed everyone with her Snow White-inspired rubber duck, hand-knit from scratch. She shared, “It was great getting to make new friends through this fun event!” Meanwhile, Rita Lee and her family constructed a charming scene with Donald Duck and his nephews, using recycled materials. The experience, Rita exclaimed, was more about precious family time than the end result: “I truly cherished how we all worked together to bring this rubber duck to life.”

The magic continued at Disneyland Resort with the annual rubber duck races in the iconic waters of “it’s a small world.” Cast members showcased their flair by decorating ducks based on themes such as “Most Disney Themed” and “Most Like Donald Duck.” Ashley, a creative superstar, designed her ducks as Violet from The Incredibles and Hei Hei from Moana. “While the parks are so far apart, it’s a unique experience to have an event like the Duck Races to keep us connected on a global scale,” she beamed. Teddo’s duck, capturing the quintessential Donald look, took home the “Most Like Donald Duck” award. Teddo declared himself Donald’s #1 Fan, reveling in the shared love for the character across the globe.

Over at Disneyland Paris, cast members also dove into the festive spirit with a rubber duck decorating event. Quentin Sempol from the Paris team crafted a homage to “The Jungle Book Jive” street show, a beloved performance from the park. “When I found out about this year’s theme, I quickly thought of honoring the ‘Jungle Book Jive’ show. It was very inspiring and made an impact on so many people!” Quentin shared enthusiastically.

This quacking global endeavor not only brought joy to Disney cast and guests alike but also contributed to a great cause. At Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris, the proceeds from the sales of rubber ducks went to support local nonprofits, making the celebrations even more meaningful.
