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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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?

  • Someone please remove this duck from my desk.

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

  • Oh Geez, Another Quack!

    • Ha!

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

    • Nice one.

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

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

    • 🙂

  • Where’s the monorail!?

  • Hey Mr Duck!Do you come here often?

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

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

    • Good one!

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

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

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

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

  • “Is our cocktail lounge open yet?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    • Funny!

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

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

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

  • 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!

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

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

  • 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!

  • This poor cast member is suffering from anatidaephobia.

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

  • no name tag!

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

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