If you spent your childhood rushing to your television to watch the Disney Afternoon programming block or were a parent who couldn’t help but watch alongside your kid, then your dreams were probably shaped by an iconic scene from the DuckTales opening credits: Scrooge McDuck diving into his gigantic money bin like it was a swimming pool! It looks so cool, but that kind of activity is usually reserved for very rich, Scottish ducks. But not for long! Soon, you too can join in on the derring do-bad and good luck tales that you previously only held in your dreams!
That’s right! If you follow our Snapchat (Disney.D23) or check our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you know that we got to do something very special on Wednesday. The dream is a reality. Scrooge McDuck is now letting Disney fans dive right in to his very own money bin! And we were some of the first to do it. Do you want to make this dream a reality? Here’s what you need to know:
What is it?
Scrooge McDuck has kindly loaned his money bin, full to the brim with gold coins (and even some diamonds and jewels!). It’s huge, and seeing it in person makes you want to go on some adventures with your wacky, color-coordinated nephews and maybe outsmart a Beagle Boy or two.
Where is it?
The Money Bin will be premiering today at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at the RDMAs, airing on Sunday on Disney Channel and Radio Disney from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday. Then the money bin will available for Disney fans when it is displayed on the show floor at D23 Expo 2017! That’s right, Scrooge McDuck is trusting us to display his money bin at D23 Expo, and we’re letting everyone jump in. Yes, that means you! If you want to get this once-in-a-lifetime chance, make sure to get your tickets now. D23 Expo 2017 takes place July 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center. We’ve got everything you need to know about it here.
How Do You Do It?
Get creative! Jump right in, do a cannonball, let out a hearty “woo-oo!” just be sure to smile for your photo––you’ll get an awesome 180° gif.
How Cool Is It??
So cool!!! We couldn’t help but dive in and throw around some coins just like Scrooge does. And if you’re a big fan of DuckTales, keep an eye out for the details like our friends Scrooge, Huey, Duey, Louie and even Webbiegail Vanderquack.
Anything Else to Know?
If you want life to keep being like a hurricane even after you’ve completed this iconic DuckTales dream, you can tune into the brand new DuckTales series, premiering in the late summer on Disney XD.
