Starting July 27, Duffy the Disney Bear’s new friend ‘Olu debuts with a line of merchandise at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa.
As with each of Duffy’s friends, there’s a sweet story about their first meeting. According to this tale, Duffy and Mickey were sailing around the islands looking for a birthday present for ShellieMay when they encountered the adorable turtle playing his ukulele in a cove.
“‘Olu smiled and shyly greeted Duffy, “I play my ‘ukulele to make songs of love. Want to sing with me?” ‘Olu strummed a beautiful song for his new friends. “That will be the perfect present for ShellieMay!” said Duffy excitedly. Off to the party they went, singing the special song together for their birthday friend,” reads the Disney story.
Recently, another one of Duffy’s new friends made her debut at Hong Kong Disneyland. Cookie, a sweet puppy and aspiring chef, met Duffy when they collided on Main Street, USA, and sent their snacks flying.
Get ready to greet ‘Olu when he makes his debut at Aulani in Ko Olina, Hawai’i next Friday, July 27.
