Story

Officially known as The Miss Daisy, the cartoon stylized boat featured red, white, blue and yellow coloring on the exterior. Donald's shirt and hat hung prominently above the boat on the empty lines for the sails. Daisy was featured prominently on the bow (front) of the boat.

A map on the inside of the boat was drawn by Professor Ludwig Von Drake of "Old Duck and the Sea" Enterprises" and featured many duck related puns and images like:

  • Mount Quack More
  • Fowl Forest and Fowl Falls
  • The Quack Sea
  • Quackatoa
  • Feathery Fjords

A wheel featured the sign "Captain Donald Duck" and guests could not only spin the wheel but also pull a rope to play the ship's horn. The surrounding area of the boat was designed to look like water and had a sponge like texture around the fountain areas.
