Shanghai Disney Resort Announces "Duffy Month" With New Aircraft

The Shanghai Disney Resort is celebrating Duffy by announcing “Duffy Month” in September. Duffy the bear is the loveable, cuddly teddy bear that is well-known and popular amongst Disney fans. Duffy was hand-sewn by Minnie Mouse which she gave to Mickey as a companion for his many ocean voyages.

Duffy is widely popular among Disney fans across China along with is friends, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and Stella Lou. Which makes sense why Shanghai Disney has decided to celebrate a month of the loveable bear by offering special Duffy-themed experiences throughout the park in September, such as a “Duffy’s Heartfelt Moments” celebration, an iconic floral Mickey display greeting guests at the entrance to Shanghai, memorable themed food and more!

The Shanghai Disney Resort kicked-off the celebration with a new Duffy-themed aircraft. The plane flew from Kunming in China’s southwest to Shanghai, following an exciting unveiling ceremony at the Kunming Changshui International Airport. The new Duffy inspired airplane, named the Duffy-Friendship Express, marks the fourth Disney-themed aircraft to join China Eastern Airlines’ Fleet.

The Duffy-Friendship Express was unveiled in front of a large group of invited guests, media, celebrities and Duffy fans decked out in Duffy apparel that matched the inside and out of the plane.

The exterior of the plane features Duffy and his friends among a pale yellow and blue background. Throughout the inside, the flight attendants were dressed in Duffy and Friends headbands, along with images lining the entire interior of the aircraft including the cabin walls.

The new Duffy-Friendship Express is the perfect flight for any Duffy fans to partake in. Would you ride this new aircraft?
