- Will Sample Tweeted the moment the character helped his son on his first walk
- The Anaheim father enlisted Donald’s help during a trip to Disneyland
- His Californian son was given a round of applause after his initial reluctance
This is the moment a toddler took his first steps – with Donald Duck at Disneyland.
The video of little Wrigley’s walk at the resort was shared by proud Anaheim father Will Sample, who tweeted the clip to Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show account.
He said ‘Hey @TheEllenShow thought you might like seeing my son Wrigley’s first steps With Donald.’
The Californian toddler seems initially reluctant but, after some encouragement from the costumed character, takes some cautious steps.
After the boy stumbles through his first ever walk, Donald Duck congratulates himself for his part in the moment, taking a bow and brushing his shoulders.

He then offers Wrigley his hand but, when the toddler appears confused, settles for giving him a round of applause.
Walt Disney created Donald Duck in 1934, with his explosive temper creating comedy across comic books and cartoons in contrast to this touching moment.
