With all of these Disney Parks, there’s no surprise that errors, delays, and malfunctions can happen at any time. Guests can experience delays while waiting in lines, at attractions, or meeting characters.

In a TikTok, Disney World Guests spotted Donald Duck signaling for help when he experienced a costume malfunction. Donald Duck takes off his hat to cover the malfunction and is helped away during the parade. He makes a quick return after fixing the malfunction.
