Donald’s Dino-Bash opened up in Dinoland U.S.A at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 25th with new Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack meet and greet areas.
Both character meet and greet areas were very detailed, and Frank Angones (co-producer, writer and story editor for DuckTales) hinted on Twitter that there may be some cool Easter Eggs at these meet and greets.
The Life and Times of Della Duck that Frank mentioned was from the episode “The Great Dime Chase!” Dewey and Webby stumble upon the book after a wild encounter with the librarian, Mrs. Quackfaster. The title of the book is also a tribute to Don Rosa who won the Eisner award for his book “The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck.”
The Life and Times of Della Duck book can be found on the shelf of books in the background of the Scrooge McDuck meet and greet area at Donald’s Dino Bash.
There are many other book Easter Eggs on that shelf that you can read about in our previous article that details the meet and greet set.
You can also preorder a copy of “The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck” which is being re-released by Fantagraphics in February 2019 on Amazon at this link.
In the center of the meet and greet area set is a bulletin board with several pictures on it.
When I first saw these two fossil creature pictures, I thought that they were made specifically for the meet and greet set bulletin because of the location of the meet and greet being in Dinoland U.S.A., but they have a more deeper meaning now after watching the newest episode of DuckTales, The Golden Lagoon of White Agony Plains!
Both of these fossil creatures were part of the Gala for the Flintheart Glomgold wing of the Natural History Museum.
The three headed fossil creature is referred to as a Glomosaurus Rex.
Huey makes the comment: “And this Glomosaurus Rex is clearly just a bunch of random parts stuck together…honestly, how do you know it wore a crown?”
The second fossil creature is revealed by Flintheart Glomgold to be the Glacier Monster of the Klondike.
The head of the Mammoth fossil is stolen from the Gala by Scrooge’s Ex Goldie.
The backstory of why the Mammoth’s skull was stolen ends up being that the skull held a map to the Golden Lagoon of White Agony Plains.
The Glacier Monster of the Klondike attacked Scrooge and Goldie when they were on an expedition to search for the golden lagoon, and part of the map ended up in the mammoth’s mouth during the struggle to get away.
It is very cool to see the origin of those two fossil creature pictures at Scrooge McDuck’s meet and greet revealed. We love finding Easter Eggs in DuckTales episodes, and it is fantastic how they incorporated these two fossil pictures into the Scrooge McDuck meet and greet area at Donald’s Dino-Bash in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

P.S. The Glomosaurus Rex is my new favorite dinosaur.
