Finding Donald Duck

Hi all! I was in WDW back in December and was able to get pics with my son and Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto. I want Donald!

Does anyone know where I should be able to find Donald at Magic Kingdom? I am going to be there next month for a conference and we are only able to go to Magic Kingdom on one day with the 3pm conference ticket.

TIA for any suggestions!

Does the WDW app tell you which characters are out and about? I think that guest services can tell you, too. I thought he was dressed as a circus performer in the meet and greet near Dumbo.

Yes, what JoanneS said. He is inside the Big Top just past the Dumbo ride (in what used to be Toontown). He is dressed as a snake charmer. Minnie, Goofy, and Daisy are also there. It's a really cute meet & greet, and the lines are not usually bad at all.

Yes, for my money, this is the easiest, most efficient character greeting. You can get four characters in a few minutes. Personally, I do wish the costumes were just the classic style, but I understand it fits the theme of the circus.

I know you said MK, but he's traditional Donald at Chef Mickey's, just around the corner at the Contemporary. He's also at Epcot, wearing a sombrero in the Mexico pavilion. I'm sure there are other places, too, but at MK, you only see him in Storybook Circus.

As others said, he'll be in the circus tent as Snake Charmer Donald. If you have time for a meal, he's at Chef Mickey's for breakfast and dinner (with a chef's coat on) or at Cape May Cafe for breakfast wearing his beach shirt.
