Disney Cruise Line Guests and Crew Take Part in First AquaDucky Derby Fundraiser At S

"The one-of-a-kind fundraiser brought together crew members and guests, who purchased yellow rubber ducks to decorate and then enter in a water-filled race aboard the ships. Races took place in Goofy's Pool on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, while those onboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy utilized the AquaDuck, the first water coaster at sea exclusive to Disney Cruise Line."

Sounds like fun!

We were there for the Fantasy Aquaduck Derby on the May 25th sailing. DD made a duck and entered it. All the ducks looked so cool going through the Aquaduck. All the pictures are on DH's camera or I would post some.

They did the AquaDucky Derby on our recent Fantasy cruise, too. We didn't buy a ducky and I wasn't feeling well enough to attend. I was wondering, tho, when the duckies went thru the part where you get "shot" up the the incline with the water jets, did they tone down the jet pressure or did any duckies get launched out of the slide??? Kinda a funny visual when you think about it.

This is an awesome idea to raise money. While I bet it was a one time thing, I wish they would do it on my cruise.

On the Fantasy they didnt put the ducks in until after the second incline.

We were on the Wonder for this and it was a great event! DS enjoyed decorating our ducks and both Jimmy and Leslie ended up in the pool fully dressed
We made it in one of the photos in the article.

Hope they continue to do this event.

We were on this sailing as well. Our two daughters decorated duckies for it.
