Duffy Month has arrived at Shanghai Disney Resort and with it comes a whole host of cute and cuddly offerings featuring Duffy and all his friends. From Sept. 1 – Sept. 30, guests can expect new performances, colorful decorations, shareable photo installations, yummy food and beverages, and an exciting lineup of merchandise inspired by the loveable characters.
From the moment guests arrive at the park, they’ll be greeted by a vibrant Duffy celebration – including a beautiful floral display. On Mickey Avenue, Minnie Lane will be adorned with colorful designs as well as miniature sets and social walls for guests to pose for photos.
During the month, guests will get the chance to dance alongside Duffy and Friends, as well as Mickey and Minnie, to the upbeat sound of Shanghai Disney Resort’s 5th Birthday Celebration theme song, “Magical Surprise.”
For those looking to bring the joy of Duffy and Friends home with them, a new line of merchandise – the Duffy and Friends Craft Time collection – was created for the month-long celebration and includes items such as plush and keychains, vintage-style knitting crossover bags and backpacks.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Duffy Month without some delicious and adorably cute food and beverage items inspired by Duffy and Friends! Throughout the park, guests can enjoy sweet treats, such as Duffy and Friends-themed ice cream, as well as limited-edition souvenirs such as the Duffy and Friends Surprise Sipper and Popcorn Bucket released for Shanghai Disney Resort’s 5th Birthday. Guests can also enjoy Duffy-themed bites and mocktails at the Duffy Weekend Brunch at the Royal Banquet Hall inside Enchanted Storybook Castle. Over at Lumière’s Kitchen at the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, diners can enjoy fun activities, including dessert decorating and sugar painting, while enjoying their meals.
Shanghai Disney Resort promises all these exciting Duffy and Friends-themed surprises and more set to be revealed throughout September.
