If, at some point in your formative years, you found yourself chanting quack, quack, quack alongside the Mighty Ducks, then you mustn’t miss out on this news. On January 12th, 2023, it will be time to “Fly Together” as Anaheim Ducks Day once again returns to Disney California Adventure park in Anaheim. There will be food and drink, special merchandise, and unique hockey experiences at the event, which this year has been expanded into Downtown Disney as well, meaning you won’t need a park ticket to join in the fun.
Let’s see what Disney has in store for us on the day:
Here’s a rundown of the day’s events and things not to miss:

Fun Fact: Did You Know? The National Hockey League club was founded in 1993 by The Walt Disney Company and was initially known as the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, a name which was inspired by the 1992 film, The Mighty Ducks. The name remained the same until the 2006-2007 season when the club officially became known as the Anaheim Ducks.
