Are you familiar with the story of Duffy the Bear? Some of us remember Duffy’s meet and greet that was available at EPCOT not too long ago. The meet and greet was removed eventually leaving Walt Disney World guests no where to visit Duffy. Duffy and his Friends are still popular however in Tokyo Disney Resort, Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Disney shares below one of Duffy’s many adventures in a new “Morning Glory” video.
So, what’s the Duffy story? The story goes, one day, in Cape Cod, Mickey Mouse the sailor was leaving on a long sea voyage. Minnie Mouse didn’t want Mickey to be lonely, so she hand-sewed him a cuddly teddy bear to keep him company and gave the bear to Mickey in a duffel bag, which inspired him to name the bear “Duffy.” Together, Duffy and Mickey share adventures – big and small – and make new friends along the way.
Check out one of Duffy’s many adventures in this new “Morning Glory” video. Duffy and his friends – ShellieMay, Gelatoni, StellaLou, CookieAnn and ‘Olu Mel – plant, in their little garden, the morning glory seeds Duffy had received from Mickey. They work together and eagerly watch as the plants grow – until a small, unexpected hiccup happens. Find out what happens next and how the friends come together to overcome all with a message of love, teamwork and friendship.
If you looked closely in the video you might even notice that Duffy the Disney Bear resembles Mickey with similar markings on his feet and face!
