Following a monumental debut at Shanghai Disneyland in September 2021, Duffy the Disney Bear’s fox-friend, LinaBell, is arriving at Tokyo Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland in the second half of 2022.

Michael Moriarty, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland, enthusiastically stated, “Being a park exclusive franchise, Duffy and Friends have always been adored by local fans and by guests across Asia. With LinaBell joining the Duffy and Friends family here at the resort, the immersive journey will be further enhanced.”

Both resorts will be rolling out LinaBell-inspired merch and menu specials to welcome the arrival of the lovable character.

At Tokyo DisneySea, guests can collect LinaBell stationary, shoulder bags, headbands, plushies, and a detective costume (that’s somewhat redolent of Dora the Explorer) for their stuffed toy.

Two of Tokyo DisneySea’s restaurants will also offer special dishes, such as pink boba and a strawberry Mont Blanc pastry.

Although Hong Kong Disneyland has yet to release specifics, the theme park has also promised LinaBell-inspired specials. For example, the amusement park’s attached hotel will deck out some of its rooms with themed decor and offer unique arts and crafts workshops.

Disney’s Duffy and Friends franchise has performed extraordinarily well in China. Its characters consistently draw massive crowds to Shanghai Disney Resort, especially since LinaBell’s debut. Other beloved characters include ShellieMay, Gelatoni, StellaLou, ‘Olu Mel, CookieAnn, and of course, Duffy.

Devoted fans of LinaBell are delighted to have the little pink fox join the rest of ‘the gang’ outside the Chinese mainland.

“The Tokyo Disney Resort will start to sell LinaBell merch on September 8! I look forward to more limited offers,” posted one excited fan on Weibo.

“I’ve been waiting for a year, and hopefully, this time, I’ll be able to get a LinaBell toy from Tokyo or Hong Kong,” said another, whose comment underscores how hard it is to acquire a genuine LinaBell toy due to the character’s massive popularity.
