"Ducky" Williams on Feb 8 Fantasy

Just read that legendary Disney artist Don "Ducky" Williams will be on the upcoming Valentine's cruise as a special guest.

To co-opt the catch phrase of Disney fan Neil Patrick Harris, this is going to make a great cruise, "legen - wait for it - dary".

Lucky people .. We saw him on the Dream MV and he was so interesting. We weren't lucky enough to win one of his sketches but we did get a print personally signed by him so were very happy.

We saw him on a NYE cruise in 2011. His talk was fascinating-we listened to it twice. I won the very last sketch of the second talk-Tinkerbell! We also had our litho autographed. His story is so interesting.

Oh I'm totally jealous! Ducky has been on the last couple of DVC members only cruises that I've been on - he's an interesting & fun speaker. Mom and I were both lucky enough to win one of his sketches - she won Flounder and I won Donald.

I had the pleasure of meeting him on a cruise many years ago (well, six years LOL!!!). One of my prized DCL souvenirs is one of his sketches which I won during one of his talks. He's a good speaker and has an interesting story!

I had the pleasure of seeing Ducky's presentation three or four times. I also was lucky to have some private time with him on my 2010 WBTA cruise where he did a drawing for me of my choosing. I also recall one time that I ran into him in Downtown Disney at WDW while he was shopping in the Disney Store. We chatted for a moment before we said goodbye. He is such a super nice guy that I always enjoy talking to and watching his presentation.

well had it not been for you, I'd have never known who this person was. I think I'll search out his presentation because it sounds very interesting! TY!

We had "Ducky" on one of our cruises and he is so interesting to watch draw and listen to. He gave away several of his sketches during his talk. He is not to be missed.

This should be a great cruise! Ducky has done some special art work and there will be a lot going on.

There will also be something special for the chocolate lovers......
