Well, this is one way to check in to a resort.


Donald Duck, pictured here in a pre-opening shot, shows a little too much enthusiasm at being one of the first guests to check in at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

What do you think was the cast member’s reaction? You tell us. Go ahead and Caption This!

Check out other Caption This posts from around Disney Parks:


  • Donald wonders if it’s just him or can the other guests can see the duck too.

  • If we let ducks start staying here next thing you know we’ll be invaded by mice, dogs, chipmunks, and all their friends!

  • no name tag!

  • This poor cast member is suffering from anatidaephobia.

    • Wow, that’s definitely a fear I’ve NEVER heard of!

  • This is a deluxe resort, but I don’t think I’ve got a bed big enough for this duck.

    • Now that would be amazing guest service!

  • I understand why my friends call me a “Quack!” I can now talk to ducks!!

  • Stop me if you have heard this one. A duck walks into a hotel….

  • Hey, will someone go tell the chef, his duck is here for his “Duck Under Glass” dish which he is serving tonite to the guests!

  • Sorry, Donald! All our rooms are full. Try your luck at the Polynesian Resort.

  • I assure you Mr. Duck, we will never have duck on our menu here, now please get down.

  • If I pretend I don’t see him maybe he’ll just go away…

  • Yes, Mr. Duck, we can put that on your bill.

    • Funny!

  • “I’m sorry, Donald, but children are NOT allowed to sit on the counter top! Do you have a parent or guardian with you?”

  • “I’ve told you, Mr. Duck, your room won’t be ready for another hour, and that’s that–This sit-in protest of yours won’t do any good!”

  • I want to speak to the manager – have you seen the size of my bill?

  • My back’s to the wall and there is a giant duck on the desk…sigh…all before my first cup of coffee…

  • “If he asks me one more time to put the cheese and quackers on his bill, I’m going to cry fowl.”

  • No, Donald! No matter how many times you ask I will not give you Mickey’s room key!

  • Yes, Mr. Duck, I can put the breath mints on your bill.

  • I’m not the only one seeing this giant duck right?

  • “Is our cocktail lounge open yet?”

  • Bartender: “A Duck, thats not contemporary! Lets get those mice back they at least like chese.”

  • I’m sorry Mr. Duck, but the title of the restaurant is “Chef Mickey’s”. There is no changing it.

  • I wonder if this sort of thing happens at the Polynesian?

  • I hope Donald doesn’t notice I’m not wearing my name tag

  • After the first prototype of the computer “duck” failed, designers went back to the drawing board and created the “mouse”.

    • Good one!

  • Sorry Mr. Duck, you can jump on the front desk all you want, but Mickey got the last suite in the hotel.

  • Hey Mr Duck!Do you come here often?

  • Where’s the monorail!?

  • I’ll have a room by the pool!
    How do I tell him they are all booked!

    • 🙂

  • “I’m sorry sir, you WILL need to wear pants inside the resort!”

  • I’m sorry sir, but there are no animals allowed in the hotel.

    • Nice one.

  • Oh Geez, Another Quack!

    • Ha!

  • Donald stares amazed how life like the wax figure behind the counter is.

  • Someone please remove this duck from my desk.

  • How close to the monorail station will my room be? Can I see the castle from my room? Daisy wants to eat at the Crystal Palace, can you make reservations for us?

  • I know you’re excited to be here but let’s not do the hugging thing!

  • Hey Daisy, didn’t you reverse us a room??

  • Just trying to keep this egg warm for Daisy while she carries in our luggage.

  • “Excuse me Sir, would you mind putting some pants on before sitting on the front desk?”

  • Andy Griffith’s stunt double was none too pleased to learn he was the victim of “fowl” play.

  • “i don’t care if you’re Mickey Mouse himself…you WILL need a reservation Mr. Duck…”

  • Now that we have the same hair stylist, let’s work on your tie!
