I know it was back in October of 2011, but we also met Classic Donald with Classic Daisy right by the hat at DHS. Do they not meet there anymore?

It's not an M & G, but I believe he's in his sailor suit for Mickeys Philharmagic... At least that's how I remember it. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

They have changed Donald's outfit at DHS, and he no longer meets there in hit blue sailor suit.

We are not happy that you can't get a picture with Donald anywhere at WDW in his classic outfit. Not really happy that there is no longer anywhere at MK that you can get a photo with Minnie in her regular dress either- you can at EPCOT though. Don't get us started on the lack of a traditional meet and greet anywhere at WDW with Belle in her yellow dress either.

Just a warning about sideshow Donald at MK- he is a snake charmer and they have giant snake statues on either side of him with big dazed eyes. When we were there, we saw more than one smaller child freak out and refuse to get anywhere near Donald because of those snake statues. The are done really cute, but I guess when you are a little kid a giant snake statue taller than you isn't exactly something you are willing to get near or turn your back on so your picture can be taken. Even DD, who was 6 and a little older than the ones freaking out, had some issues with the set up. DD hates snakes, and she refused to take any pictures at all with Donald until the photopass photographer promised to crop it where the snake statues could not be seen in the photo.

As a major Donald Duck fan, I too was irked by the lack of photo ops with my favorite Duck in his sailor suit! It became a mission. I found both Donald and Daisy in their classic attire at Hollywood Studios right next to the big blue hat. (although I am hearing that is no longer the case. BOO!!!) Also Donald is in his sailor suit at the Picture Spot at Epcot, plus a cute background!! Best of luck on your mission!!

I sent a letter to guest relations saying how awful it was that I couldn't meet "classical" Donald anywhere and I got a canned response saying I could meet him at Pete's. I think they don't get why it's important to us to meet him as he was designed. Maybe it's time we all sent some letter and let them know this is not acceptable. How come the other 4 get to meet on their classical attire and not Donald?.

Not anymore though. Donald now only meets in Mexico with his poncho and Sombrero.

There's no where in WDW where he meets in his sailor suit.

As you've learned, Donald is not "scheduled" to meet anywhere in his classic sailor overlay. HOWEVER, he does make weekly pop up appearances at Epcot in his Sailor Suit (as recently as... TODAY). Pop up appearances are impossible to plan for because you will not find a set schedule for them and you will have even less luck trying to find a CM that knows if he's appearing.

He is most likely to appear between Canada/UK or America/Italy in the mid afternoons (1-4ish). Your best chance is to ask the CM at the coffee spots in the same areas if they've seen any characters out that day, and maybe they'll remember if Donald was one.

Sometimes he's out everyday, sometimes you may not seen him for several days.

As for all his other locations, here's a link to all my Donald Photos around WDW:

This will point you to all the regular character meets in Walt Disney World and you can decide which version(s) you'd like to meet. Click on a character's name for the full schedule.

Donald Duck is no longer featured in the Epcot Character Spot. It is only Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto.

The ONLY place Sailor Donald would have been spotted is at a Training Meet in Epcot. Donald doesn't meet at all in Epcot Character Spot and wears costumes at EVERY other meet in Disney World.
