If you’ve been to Tokyo Disney Resort, Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort or Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, you might be familiar with Duffy & Friends, an original Walt Disney Imagineering story.
So, 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!
There are endless possibilities tied to the loveable and huggable bear and you can be part of the adventures too by using the hashtag #DuffyandFriends on social media to share your adventures with Duffy and his friends.
