    We will be visiting Walt Disney World next week!! But I just heard some news that may make me have to change our whole itinerary. Is Duffy the Disney Bear's last day at Epcot October 3rd? My kids just love him and are so looking forward to seeing him!

    Hi Kim!

    I hate to be the "bear"er of sad news, but the rumors of Duffy the Disney Bear's departure from World Showcase Plaza at Epcot appear to be true.  Looking at the official calendar, he is scheduled to greet Guests through Saturday, October 3, 2015.  The times on the schedule for that day are 11:30 a.m.-2:10 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m.  If meeting Duffy before his travels take him to new lands is on your "must do" list, you'll want to stop by on or before that date to be sure you don't miss him.

    I do have some good news to share, though.  Duffy merchandise will continue to be available in some of the shops, and if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you should still be able to catch the nightly bedtime story with Duffy during your visit next week.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Kim!  Please visit us here again if we can help answer any other questions.
