Why is there a lack of love shown to this duck duo? Despite the fact that Donald Duck is a member of the “Fab 5”; despite the long and happy romance that Donald and Daisy have enjoyed, there seems to be a lack of attention focused on this couple. Daisy and Donald Fauntleroy Duck had their first date 74 years ago in the Disney film short, Mr. Duck Steps Out, and though never married, have had a lively courtship ever since. Of course, they never carry the spotlight that their good pals Mickey and Minnie do, but after nearly 75 years I’d call this a Disney Duck Dynasty!
In my first 26 years visiting Disney Parks, I never once saw Donald and Daisy together. It was not until the soft opening of Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 1998 that we stumbled upon the couple in Camp Mickey-Minnie. Since then, they are a bit more visible. They often attend special events in the parks, and now have a new Character Meet and Greet in Pete’s Silly Sideshow.
Lately, I’ve run into a couple of pseudo ducks paying homage to the famous couple.
