Watch This Adorable Meet and Greet Between Donald Duck and His Matching Fan

A darling video posted to the Disney Parks’ Instagram account shows an adorable fan meeting Donald Duck in matching holiday attire at the Disneyland Resort.

When visiting Disney Park, one of the most magical experiences you can have is an interactive character experience. Especially as a small child, there’s something special about being able to hug your favorite Disney icon and maybe even have them sign your autograph book!

Of course, the holidays are one of the best times of year to link up with characters at your favorite Disney Park, when everything becomes that much merrier, and even the Fab Five don their gay apparel for a limited time to make the season bright! Such was the case for a family of Guests who love the holiday wear so much, they wore their own versions when visiting Disneyland Park.

The video shows a small child approaching Donald Duck while visiting Disneyland during a character meet and greet. This is not uncommon for children at Disney Parks to do. However, the boy’s adorable matching costume makes this video all the more heartwarming!

In fact, such an experience is not new to little Rio, whose mom Rosa regularly dresses him up in Disney flair. Here, Rio sports a replica of Donald’s festive holiday wear, complete with a sweater, scarf, and hat (which Donald himself grabs to make the boy laugh).

Plus, he even has the quintessential feathered bottom, and orange tights to complete to waterfowl ‘fit.  However, this iconic rendez-vous nearly didn’t happen!

Apparently, the first time that the three brothers attempted to meet Disney characters while dressed like them, it didn’t pan out so they returned another time in costume:
