Donald and Daisy Duck are two of the most classic characters at Walt Disney World. You can find the pair at various locations, including character dining experiences and meet-and-greet opportunities.
Additionally, they make appearances in shows and parades. No matter where you find them, Donald and Daisy will surely add a touch of magic to your day.
Below, we’ll look at every location to meet Donald Duck and Daisy Duck at Walt Disney World. In some instances, the two meet together; in others, they meet separately.
But first–a warning. These two tend to hold a long line at traditional meet-and-greets. So let out a giant sigh with an “aww phooey” and get ready to learn where to meet Disney’s #1 duck and his fabulous sidekick.
Meet Daisy Duck at Hollywood Studios
Donald and Daisy Duck met near the entrance of Disney’s Hollywood Studios for many years. But in the last few years, we’ve seen them move around quite a bit.
We found them meeting in separate locations on our last visit to Hollywood Studios. Daisy is now meeting alone on one of the lawns in front of the Hollywood Brown Derby. This is one of a few remaining character sightings at Walt Disney World. Guests can walk up to the fence, wave to Daisy, or take a photo with her in the background.
Since this location remains distanced, Dasiy does not sign autographs or have a PhotoPass photographer present. However, you won’t have to wait in line to see her, which is a decent trade-off.
You’ll want to check the My Disney Experience app for appearance times on the day of your visit. But this is one of those locations where running into Daisy while you’re touring the park is fun. It only takes a minute to stop, say hi, and then continue to where you are headed.
Here is a video of the character sighting when Donald met Daisy at this location.

You’ll find plenty of places to meet Donald Duck and Daisy Duck at Walt Disney World. Our best advice is to always check the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit for traditional meet-and-greets.
Unfortunately, sometimes things change. For example, Daisy and Donald have moved multiple times this last year at Hollywood Studios. So, the app should list their locations on the day of your visit.
But for the most part, character meets are consistent. If you can’t find a specific location, ask a cast member wearing a blue shirt near a character meet. They tend to have the most up-to-date knowledge about where and when to find characters.
