At Walt Disney World, this summer as part of the Incredible Summer, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has rolled out Donald’s Dino-Bash. This new character experience celebrates the fact that Donald has learned that birds are descended from dinosaurs and he wants to celebrate. Donald’s Dino-Bash includes lots of meet and greet opportunities with some of your favorite (and some unique) characters, like Donald, Daisy, Chip and Dale (dressed as dinosaurs), Launchpad McQuack, and Scrooge McDuck! There’s also a great dance party for Guests to enjoy too!
But of course, you know with any bash at Walt Disney World, there’s a cupcake too, right? And Donald’s Dino-Bash is no exception. Found at Restaurantosaurus, this cupcake gets its name from the color design used. The icing is blue and white, with yellow crispy pearls and a red fondant bow. The cake itself is yellow and there is a lemon filling in the middle.
Personally, I’m not a fan of lemon, however, there was such a small amount of the filling in there that it was actually easy to eat around. (Though those who like lemon will enjoy it.) The icing is the kind I like; it was a buttercream icing and it was very sweet. The crispy pearls gave the cupcake a nice bit of oomph, though they didn’t have much flavor. Also, the cake was moist and I found it to be delicious. Really, the only miss was the fondant bow, which was TERRIBLE. My entire party thought it was awful and I even wondered if I was eating plastic. So, if you get this cupcake, just throw the bow away!
This was a nice, large cupcake that I ended up sharing among the four of us in my party and we were all satisfied, however, I think that one person could eat this cupcake too, if they wanted to.
If you’re heading to Donald’s Dino-Bash and looking for a sweet treat, don’t hesitate to pick up the Donald Duck cupcake!

Hi, I was curious if you knew if the Donald Duck cupcakes counted as a Quick Service Snack? I’ve got the quick service dining plan and was curious when swinging by with my son (obsessed with Donald) if I’d be able to use a credit or be paying out of pocket. Thanks!
So, I have good news, and I have bad news.
The good news is that any cupcake that can be found at a Walt Disney World dining location CAN count as a snack credit!
The bad news? Unfortunately, Disney isn’t offering the Donald Duck cupcake any longer. 🙁 However, there are lots of other delicious and adorable cupcakes to choose from at many different restaurants and snack locations, so I’m sure you’ll find a great option to enjoy! Unfortunately, it just won’t look like Donald.
