Today’s “Caption This” photo was snapped on Seven Seas Lagoon at the Walt Disney World Resort in 1987.
Can You Caption This Image From Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort?

In it, Donald and Goofy show off their water skiing skills right in front of Magic Kingdom Park – what a way to make an entrance!

Where will they go from here? More tricks on the water? Or shed the skis for some fun at the park? You tell us. Go ahead and “Caption This!”


  • They need to listen to the DIS Unplugged podcast and learn, “stay out of the…lakes.”

  • Hey, Mickey, look what we can do! Put your suit on and join us.

  • just goofin around

  • Gawrsh Donald……are you sure this is the jungle cruise?

  • Goofy:
    Watch out for the dock
    hehe lets splash the kids

  • “Goofy lost his waterskis in the lagoon, and he’s been like a thorn in Donald’s side ever since.”

    (THANK YOU for posting this picture! I remember seeing Goofy waterskiing on the lagoon when I was a girl. It was the best reason to ride the ferry to the Magic Kingdom! I asked a couple of ferry attendants about it on my last visit, but they were unaware of this show. This was real–I wasn’t dreaming!)

  • Donald and Goofy catch a tow back to Wilderness Lodge.

  • go back! go back! magic kingdom is too packed!

  • Ski you real soon!

  • I don’t care what they say, this is much faster than the ferry boat or the monorail.

  • “First documented inspiration for the AquaDuck and AquaDunk.”

  • “Look, ma! No wings!”

  • Donald to Goofy upon the Magic Kingdom “exit”:
    Good afternoon. We’re gonna have a great jump today. Okay, first crank a hard cutback as you hit the wall. There’s a screaming bottom curve, so watch out. Remember: rip it, roll it, and punch it!

  • (Hyuk’ing and quacking: ) “Vacation, all I ever wanted…”

  • “Gwarsh Donald, that is one big gator, ain’t it?”

  • Donald and Goofy doing “The Wave”

  • I’m quacking up at how goofy this is!

  • Like Goofy off a ducks back

  • We’re on our waaaaaaaay to River Country!!!!
    (which they actually use to do. I have a great photo of Goofy swimming in the pool with my kids)

  • Garsh, Donald, wouldn’t it have been easier to catch the monorail to the TTC, and switch to the Epcot line? This is so out of the way.

  • Goofy: Who needs skis when you can travel by duck?
    Donald: On the way back I get the top!

  • Wait! We lost Mickey!

  • Garsh! I thought this was Splash Mountain!
