    What about Duffy?

    I know that Duffy merchandise originally resided only in Cape Cod, but has since spread to other locations in TDS. With TDS closed, can Duffy be found anywhere else at TDR? The only place I can think of that would not distract from the "TDS only" nature of him would be at Bon Voyage - does that location sell Duffys?

    Bon Voyage does not sell Duffy. He and Shellie May are totally exclusive to TDS. However, word is that TDS may reopen as early as April 28. TDR will make an announcement on their site 3 days prior to the park opening, so we'll see what the 25th brings.

    He is a Tokyo Disney Sea exclusive, unlike WDW that will put him anywhere a shelf is.

    Interesting. Although, I have seen in several clips of re-opening day at TDL that Duffy was well-represented among the guest population, including one girl during the Morning Dash that was carrying one of the large ones with her.

    Yes everyone has them; young, old, female, male...it is fascinating! Last year while waiting for Jubilation we sat on a bench with a young couple in their mid 20s that had two regular sized Duffy's, as well as a few "badge" sized ones. Then the young lady pulled out two Duffy blankets for themselves to keep warm. You will also see people carrying 6+ Duffy's in various sizes.

    Re: What about Duffy?

    The fact that Duffy merchandise has not moved over to the Disneyland park. Gives me high hopes DisneySea will soon reopen. Its without question Duffy sales bring in massive $$$ for the company. And I can't see OLC waiting to long before wanting to resume sales for the Bear.

    In Japan Duffy's suscess is mainly down to merchandise release dates. The next one scheduled was for April the 28th and the theme would have been DisneySea's 10th Anniversary. With the park reopening in doubt and no updates on the Anniversary its impossible to say if Duffy sales for the new stuff will begin on this date now.

    Our very own DuffyDaisuki recently posted several images from the recent Disney Fan Magazine. Showing of all the new Duffy lines. Please check it out over on the Duffy section of MiceChat.

    Re: What about Duffy?

    I'm looking forward to seeing anyones videos or photos on opening day of TDR & Duffy. I'm sure the crowds will be there in force- Duffy fans have gone well over a month now with no new product or seeing Duffy at the parks.
