Donald Duck Joins “Disney Fab 50” Sculptures at Walt Disney World

“Who’s the leader of the Club that’s made for you and me?” While yes, Mickey Mouse is the correct answer, we can’t help but think of Donald shouting “Donald Duck” in the background! As the sculpture count continues to grow for the Disney Fab 50 sculptures, Disney’s newest addition would likely say he should have been the #1 reveal! Nonetheless, Walt Disney World’s preparations for their 50th Anniversary (The World’s Most Magical Celebration”) are well underway and we’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of 50 fabulous character sculptures that will be located throughout each of Walt Disney World’s four parks. Even though many Disney fans are focused on the exciting new nighttime spectacular coming to Magic Kingdom called “Disney Enchantment”, and the new spectacular coming to EPCOT called “Harmonious”, we can’t help but get excited to spot Donald Duck and all his friends. Check out the latest details below with Donald’s addition!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
