Here are the Disney Afternoon/DuckTales related guests attending MegaCon Orlando that you are going to want to have on your radar:

Note: I know these celebrities have many credits to list, but I picked a quick highlight for each one.

Celebrity Guests

David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck Voice Actor) will be appearing Friday and Saturday. A picture with David and/or an autograph on some of the new DuckTales merch including the Scrooge McDuck PhatMojo figure would be sweet!

AUTOGRAPH PRICE: $110.00

PHOTO OP PRICE: $100.00

Jim Cummings (Darkwing Duck)…Jim Cummings will be appearing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. He is not only the voice of Darkwing Duck, but he has a major voice role in most of the Disney Afternoon shows. I had Jim sign a Darkwing Duck Funko POP for me at a convention, and it is my favorite Darkwing Duck piece in my collection. Jim will reprise his voice work as Darkwing Duck on DuckTales in the episode The Duck Knight Returns! which airs this Friday.

Jim will be participating in Live Voice Acting Script Read of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory on Saturday, May 18th @ 3:00PM S320 Main Theater

Comic Guests

Joe Caramagna (DuckTales Comic Writer) will be appearing Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Table PA085

We have socialized on Twitter with Joe since the new DuckTales comic launched 20 issues ago, and we can’t wait to finally meet him in person at MegaCon and get some DuckTales comics swag signed. Also, Joe is known for being able to be bribed with doughnuts so let’s show him the best of what Orlando has to offer. Joe is also a major advocate of the Ronald McDonald’s organization in which he donates profits from sales at his booth. Get to Joe’s booth early before he runs out of DuckTales comics.

Joe Caramagna will also be participating in a Writing for Comics panel on Saturday, May 18th @ 5:00PM N210A

James Silvani (Darkwing Duck Comic Illustrator/Con Legend) will be appearing Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Table PA083

I have been to two conventions in California where James has made appearances, and I would tell anyone that preordering a commission sketch from James is the best money that you will spend at any convention that he is in attendance. Hurry to his table before his commission preorder list fills up. James will also have character headshots and fullshot sketches for sale at his table as well as some of his books including his must own new sketchbook, Combo Platter. I also need to get my Darkwing Duck Definitively Dangerous Edition book signed.

Amy Mebberson (Disney Princess Comics and Toys) will be appearing Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Amy is definitely a member of #TeamDarkwing and has worked on the Darkwing Duck BOOM comics. Amy’s Disney Princess comics has led to a really fun toy line that she designed for Hasbro. Go check out her booth and purchase her new sketchbook, Classy Broads.

Amy Mebberson will also be participating in a Sketch Duel against Agnes Garbowska on Saturday, May 18th @ 4:00PM N210A

The full list of comic guests can be found here.

What do you think of this lineup? It is definitely going to be a weekend full of fun at MegaCon Orlando this year. Let us know if you plan on attending.
