This weekend is your last chance to meet and greet with Duffy the Disney Bear.

Launched with much fanfare in October 2010, Duffy arrived as a hugely successful character with strong merchandise sales from Tokyo Disney. A new meet and greet area was built in World Showcase, with a nearby gift shop selling a whole range of Duffy merchandise and accessories.

Disney has now confirmed that Duffy will be leaving Epcot on October 3 2015, with Daisy Duck taking over the location from October 4 2015.

Duffy merchandise will continue to be available at Fun Finds in Disney Springs Marketplace.

Was thrilled to find ShellieMay at MouseGear this evening!

Sounds like they are relaunching in some way if they are releasing ShellieMay merchandise. Let's hope they get a meet and greet with both of them together, that would be so neat.

I found the ShellieMay book at Mousegear this past Friday night. The book was not with the other books in the store but with the other Duffy items. Looking forward to buying the plush later this fall!

He meant the Shellie May mercy.

I was referring to the plush. Another website is reporting her debut is October 20th at Epcot for the plush and other merchandise than just the book which is already there. I haven't heard anything about a walkaround character for meet and greets. It would be great for Duffy and ShelleyMae to be together at Disney Springs or wherever as they are at Tokyo.

I think they were referring to her plush version.

WDW does not have her as a walk around

I saw the Shellie May book at Mousegear in Epcot last week. I'll be on the hunt for the plush soon!

I remember seeing photos of the Shellie May books at various stores in Epcot.

Yay more kittens.

Any confirmation to the news that Shellie May is at WDW now, or where they're selling her at? It's odd they'd just start selling her without any fanfare. Looks like a competing Disney site is reporting she's now being sold at Disneyland (not sure if I should post the link).
