I got mine the sailor outfit, and now I'm trying to find the money for Sorcerer, I'm a huge Sorcerer fan but I rather spend the 20 dollars on not just a costume

Do you know anything about the boxed Duffy outfits??? Listed at $30. I've asked a couple of different cm's at different stores about them and nobody seems to know if they were even sold or what they contain.

The set that I remember had Mickey PJs, robe etc. The box sets are long gone. A CM told me she does not expect them back.But who knows?
But I was able to get the Sully costume for Duffy, another limited edition.

I think Duffy is adorable (But I've always had a soft spot for teddy bears, my very first word was teddy) and he didn't have anyone with him last time we were at Epcot

Next time if he doesn't have a long line, I'm totally going to go say hello and have a cuddle

Duffy and Shelley Mae are HUGE here in Japan. I would say they are more popular than Mickey himself. They love those bears.

Last time we were in Epcot, we tried to see Duffy twice, and they cut off the line just as it was our turn.

DD is about to turn 15 and is planning right now which outfits Duffy and Shellie May are going to wear each day during our November trip.

My avatar proves our Duffy and Shellie May love.

We've never waited more than 5-10 minutes for Duffy.

Duffy is Mickey's teddy bear that they are trying to pass off as a new Disney character. He is a major draw in Japan but hasn't gone over so well here as a character. They do sell a lot of bears, so the marketing is everywhere.

I've never waited longer than 5 mins for Duffy. I've always found the character waits in Epcot to be shorter than any other park!

Good to know since we're visiting Epcot twice on our trip!

I wanted to meet most characters there to allow more time for rides when we visit MK. But i'm still determined to get a photo with each character in all of their "special outfits"

DD(7) is Duffy obsessed. She has a Duffy that we got the first year he came out at WDW that she is rarely apart from in our house- he sleeps with her, watches TV with her, eats with her (gets fed some of whatever she is having), is in whatever room she is playing somewhere, and he also goes to WDW and DL- and MUST spend every day all day in the parks with us because he is visiting home and his friends. He also dresses accordingly for the park we are going to, or activities we plan to undertake. At WDW, little Duffy and DD visit big Duffy multiple times, often more than once a day on Epcot days. I think the most we have ever waited is 15 minutes and that was because he was late getting to his spot. Usually it is a 5 minute or less wait, 10 if he needs a "sugar cookie break". Every now and then the line will pick up a little longer, but it still is usually only about 10 minutes.

BUT- be aware that Duffy usually goes on break from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30, so he won't be there during those times and if he happens to have a line that has picked up right before he went on break, the line might get cut off earlier than that. I'd say if you are there by 2:30 you should be fine, but the closer it is to 3:00, the more the chance that you might have a problem.

Oh what a cute story! I didn't realise that Duffy was Mickey's bear or who Shellie was thank you! Is this a charming story that was added later or can Duffy be seen in orginal artwork/cartoons?
