Bust out the ukelele! New merchandise featuring Aulani’s beloved ‘Olu Mel has arrived at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. ‘Olu Mel is a beloved sea creature that is usually spotted with Duffy and Friends at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Hawaii, but a new Loungefly bag, suitcase, and shoulder plush are the latest in a new line of merchandise that brings the ukelele-playing turtle to BouTiki at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
‘Olu Mel Loungefly Bag – $88
A fedora-wearing ‘Olu Mel sings along to his ukelele on the front of this new Loungefly bag to be spotted at Walt Disney World. The sea turtle is sewn in the center of a beachfront island scene in front of the Aulani Resort and Spa. Traditional Hawaiian flowers frame the character.
On the back of the Loungefly, ‘Olu Mel has ditched the fedora and tests the waters on his surfboard in a small framed scene at the bottom. More Hawaiian fauna and ‘Olu’s signature ukelele surround the frame.
The inside of the main pocket features a pattern of ‘Olu Mel in a series of adventures. Scenes feature the island turtle playing the uke, hanging out with a beach ball and heart-shaped sunglasses, and floating on an inner tube near the sandy beachfront.
‘Olu Mel Suitcase – $225
‘Olu has traveled from Aulani to Polynesian Village, but this new suitcase will keep Duffy’s friend on the move. An allover pattern of postcards and framed scenes cover the brown suitcase.
The suitcase features two chocolate brown faux leather straps around the bag’s center with matching accompaniments on top and at each of the bag’s corners.
The bag features a combination lock and TSA-approved entry. An extendable handle in chocolate brown makes transporting this wheeled luggage a breeze.
‘Olu Mel Shoulder Plush – $20
An ‘Olu Mel shoulder plush is also now available at Walt Disney World. ‘Olu Mel’s bright blue eyes and smile stand out in patches of yellow. Likewise, his yellow plush chest sits above felted feet with random, darker green spots. The plush can sit on your shoulder with an included magnetic disk.
Mickey is embroidered at the center of a sun pattern on the back of Olu’s shell. More darker green spots can be seen on the turtle’s head.
This new Loungefly bag, suitcase, and shoulder plush are the latest in a new line of merchandise that brings the ukelele-playing turtle to BouTiki at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. We spotted an ‘Olu Mel plush and ornament at BouTiki yesterday and a new spirit jersey and beach towel of Duffy’s adorable turtle friend last week.
