Duffy The Disney Bear was originally developed for Walt Disney World, but found his way over to The Tokyo Disney Resort where he became a popular plush and in-park character. Disney is going to attempt to re-introduce this cute little guy back to the US parks with this event and one at WDW. If you are interested in this event, please read the FAQ which has a very strict set of rules you must follow if you wish to attend.
