Walt Disney World to Make Donald’s Dino-Bash Permanent

We previously reported that there would be a temporary character event at Disney’s Animal Kingdom featuring Donald Duck and his friends.  The event is known as Donald’s Dino-Bash and will take place in Dinoland, U.S.A. starting on May 25th, 2018.  While it was originally communicated that this event would be available for a limited time, it looks like Disney has decided to make this a permanent event at the theme park.  A show director for Disney Parks Live Entertainment, Mark Renfrow, gave the statement that it would be sticking around.  Durint the event, guests will be able to see Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Launchpad McQuack, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale.  Chip and Dale will be all dressed up in their dinosaur costumes, too!


Donald Duck has learned that his ancestors were descendants of the dinosaurs, so there is a big dinosaur-themed celebration based on this discovery!  There will even be new decor in the area, perfect for the party.  We can’t wait to check out this fun experience and celebrate in this discovery with Donald!

Who will adding this to their must-do list this summer?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
