    Duffy and ShellieMay (the Disney Bear) FAQS

    "いっしょだと、いいことありぞう。"
    "Issho dato, iikoto arizou."

    "When we're together, good things happen."

    This is a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) thread on Duffy and ShellieMay the Disney Bear. It's based on the original Duffy (the Disney Bear) FAQs thread, but with new information about the bears (character greetings, merchandise, etc.). The first post will focus on where to meet Duffy and ShellieMay and purchasing Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise.

    Where can I meet Duffy?

    Up until the opening of the Cape Cod Village Greeting Place in July 2011 (officially opened on July 8th, but there were several days of previews), Duffy's greeting spots varied all throughout Tokyo DisneySea. His first greeting spot was at Cape Cod's small pier, with the Hurricane Point lighthouse serving as the backdrop for his greeting spot. It is now used as an official "Photo Point" spot and is also the location for the "Cape Cod is Duffy's Hometown" signage. During his debut, there was no schedule for his greetings, guests had to wait and see. His second greeting spot was inside the gazebo across from the Broadway Theater in American Waterfront. Within the year, it was decided that putting Duffy so far away from Cape Cod was a bad move, and the Village Greeting Place opened within Cape Cod with a well crafted Duffy theme that anyone has ever seen. With the opening of the Village Greeting Place, Cape Cod was transformed 100% into a mini Duffy-land. He can now be found greeting his friends inside the Cape Cod Village Greeting Place.

    In Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, his greeting spot is found near the entrance to the Treasures in Paradise shop in Paradise Pier. In Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort, he does his meet 'n greets inside the gazebo across the Disney Traders (Plaza Towers East) (recognizable from the Duffy-themed decorations outside the store) and near the entrance to World Showcase, starting at the Mexico pavilion. In Hong Kong Disneyland, he can be found greeting guests in the Fantasy Gardens. In Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris, he does meet 'n greets alongside other characters at the Boarding House in Town Square near the entrance to the Storybook Store.

    Where can I meet ShellieMay?

    ShellieMay can be found meeting friends across the Cape Cod Village Greeting Place in American Waterfront. ShellieMay only appears during special events and shows at Disneyland Paris.

    Where can I get Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise?

    Guests can buy Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise at Aunt Peg's Village Store and McDuck's Department Store, both located in American Waterfront. Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise can also be found at Galleria Disney near the park entrance and the Sleepy Whale shop in Mermaid Lagoon. At the Disneyland Resort, Duffy merchandise are found at various shops, but the latest merchandise can be found at Treasures in Paradise in Paradise Pier at Disney California Adventure. At the Walt Disney World Resort, Duffy merchandise can be found in all four theme parks, but theming is more closely located at Epcot. If planning on purchasing official Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise directly from the Tokyo Disney Resort, follow this link: Duffy Post Coast-to-Coast TDS Express Export Shopping Service This thread will explain all information on how to set up a wish list.
    Where can I find Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise that is no longer offered at the parks?

    In Japan, Yahoo Auctions is your best bet. In the rest of the world, probably eBay, but be prepared for some serious "sticker shock". Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise increase in value almost instantly. Tokyo DisneySea goods, for example, will increase in value, since the merchandise is tied to seasons and park events. Also, be careful of finding counterfeit versions of Duffy and ShellieMay merchandise that are of poor quality.

    Any information for this FAQ can be posted here.

    There's also a good selection of Duffy merchandise at World of Disney at Downtown Disney Anaheim and at Once Upon A Toy at Downtown Disney Orlando.

    Re: Duffy and ShellieMay (the Disney Bear) FAQS

    This post focuses on "Duffy's Photo Points", located at Tokyo DisneySea and a brief description of the overseas Disney Theme Parks version of "Duffy's Photo Points".

    What are Duffy's Photo Points?


    Originally hidden at Tokyo DisneySea, guests can find Photo Points throughout the park. Photo Points allow guests to place their bears on wooden fold down seats, to create iconic photos at locations throughout the park. These used to be for guests to discover by chance, but they are now marked on the official park map. There are Photo Points located throughout the park, but only two, Cape Cod and Arabian Coast have seats for two bears.

    Apparently there were Photo Points at Walt Disney World a month or two after the official U.S. relaunch of Duffy, but they seem to have disappeared very quickly without explanation.

    Re: Duffy and ShellieMay (the Disney Bear) FAQS

    This post will focus on the other characters that make up the Duffy Universe.

    Who are the other characters that make up the Duffy Universe?

    I can identify one character as part of the Duffy Universe. His name is TippyBlue, whose character is established as a postman for the Cape Cod Postal Service. He appears in the original and updated versions of My Friend Duffy and has made appearances in merchandise. One notable example is a plush badge made for the show.

    There are the other characters besides the three mentioned above. So far, they appear only on merchandise made for the Halloween and Christmas offerings at Tokyo DisneySea.

    Who is Gelatoni?

    Gelatoni is a light gray tuxedo cat that was introduced on July 1st at Tokyo DisneySea. Prior to his official reveal, Tokyo DisneySea launched a campaign at Mediterranean Harbor by leaving clues of him: a portrait painted on the wall beside one showing Duffy holding a gelato, a mural of flowers and art supplies along with the familiar Mickey Paw Prints like the bears, but have three toe prints, and a painting of Duffy riding in the gondola on the canals of Mediterranean Harbor.

    Presented on this link is a translation of his story along with the official merchandise: Ciao, Gelatoni! Debut+Shopping Info
