Really love the christmas outfit. Definitely going to have to pick that one up for Duffy. ^.^ Very happy that the outfits are getting somewhat better then before.
The Christmas costume is definitely an improvement to the stuff we've gotten before. I like the little Hidden Mickey/holly embroidery around his costume. The little Mickey plush is a cute touch too but I agree that he needs pupils! Looks a little unsettling without them.
We still have a long way to go before quality-wise, it can even come close to competing with OLC merchandise, but even small steps are steps, to be super-positive.
I still think Disney needs to come out with some "everyday" outfits for Duffy. Whenever I go to WDW, I always get a lot of people (both CMs and guests) asking where I got whatever outfit he has on at the time, which 99% of the time is from BAB. The costumes are cute and all, but for me I only like them for special occasions.
HI! It would be nice if WDW had one main shop with all the Duffy things. The shop across from Duffy's Meet & Greet Pavilion, Disney Traders, is suppose to get all the Duffy stuff. But when the new USA outfit came out, other shops, even other parks got it first. It's so frustrating!
My suggestion is to call Disney Parks Merchandise when you arrive, (877) 560-6477. They'll be able to tell you who has the outfit so you don't end up running crazy!
Duffy XD is a cute name for your Duffy!
You can get those 1st time visit buttons everywhere - They have a cast member with a cart of all the different buttons in front of Guest Relations in the Magic Kingdom. They ticket booth CM's have the buttons & all the parks in the Guest Relations centers have them as well.
Enjoy your trip! We are planning an informal meetup maybe August 17th or 18th - so let me know if you'll be here then and would like to join us!
Just a Duffy merchandise announcement:
To be released on August 3rd is a new Duffy park pin from Disneyland Paris.

I LOVE that new pin from Paris.
I only have one pin. I love it and keep it at my desk year round.
Hey all of you in Florida.
There was a comment that the park specific conductor outfit is already available out West. When it hits the East, would one of you post it?
Also, would anyone be willing to purchase and ship?
It seems Disneyland gets a lot of the costumes before WDW. Kind of unfair. They should get them at the same time.
Overall, WDW is larger. I'd think that it would hit there first. However, Disneyland is and will for ever be Walt's park.
nothing really. Just maybe there is favoritism to the West for the new merchandise release.
