There are very few character interactions like the Donkey Meet and Greet at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios in Orlando.

Guests who visit the Parks are able to meet with the popular character from the Shrek franchise, ask him questions, and get unique responses.

Donkey was asked if he knows BTS, the popular Boy Band that is renowned worldwide, and immediately busted out into song. He sang a couple of bars of the song “Butter” and Guests cheered the performance.

After, Donkey talked about the band and their performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, showing us that he still has time to catch some television despite a busy schedule meeting with Guests all day at Universal.

In addition to his meet and greet, Donkey can also be found with fellow characters Shrek and Gingy in the preshow at the DreamWorks Theatre.

On the east coast, Universal confirmed that Shrek 4-D would be closing permanently in January 2022. While the ride will be closing, the meet and greet with Donkey will stay intact meaning that Guests at both Parks can still interact with their favorite furry friend.
