Does Duffy have long lines in Epcot?

Since we have an ADR at Garden Grill at 3:30, we're trying to go to the World Showcase as soon as it opens at 11 so it may be 2:30 before we are able to make it over to meet Duffy.

I didn't know if he was really too busy at any certain time or not.

Waits for him rarely exceed 15-20 minutes.

The only time I've seen him have a long line lately was for a big group of Japanese tourists.

We waited less than 15 minutes and that included a character switch off.

That makes me sad

I didn't get a chance to meet him last year since we were in a hurry but he's just so adorable that I want a photo with him in his Santa outfit

I met him with my "Duffy." Mine's actually The Disney Bear before he became Duffy, but I brought him to show Duffy. I know Duffy gets mixed reactions but I've always had that personal bond with mine

My 4-year-old LOVES Duffy (and could fill a room with her Duffy's and his clothing changes) and we've never waited more than 10 minutes to meet him. Even at MNSSHP where he's in his pumpkin costume the line was less than 15 minutes!

We did not wait in line for ANY charecter. My boys are 13, 13 & 10 and not interested... We had one charecter meal where I got a bunch of awesome pics (garden grill). But, when we walked by Duffy there was nobody my ds10 said "mommmmm Duffy is alone, lets go say hi" so we did and got some photos.

This! I've seldom seen more than a few in line.

Personally, he still looks out of place as a character at Disney Doesn't do a thing for me.

Awww, poor Duffy! My DD hasn't taken much of an interest in Duffy but I will be sure to give him some love when I see him!

My kids are Duffy crazy, so I'm glad the lines for him are short.

Problem is they don't market Duffy correctly and most people don't even know who he is..
My issue is Duffy looks no better than any other mascot costume and generic amusement parks a b and c..

I love Duffy!! I saw him shortly after he was introduced and I figured lines would increase!! I'll give him lots of love though!!

I have a Build-A-Bear that I got in Disneyland my only trip there that I named Puffy! I'm 19 now and still take that bear on every vacation!! So when I brought Duffy home...they fell in love!!

lol They love college too by the way!!

I hope him in his Santa outfit at MVMCP doesn't have very long lines!! Him and Jack Sparrow are my main M&Gs there!!!
