This spring also marks the arrival of Duffy’s newest friend, StellaLou, a spunky and determined lavender rabbit. When they met, StellaLou told Duffy of her ambitions to become a Broadway dancer and taught him what it means to “follow your dreams.” Now, she has danced her way to Shanghai Disneyland to join Duffy and his friends on Mickey Avenue.
A special welcome ceremony for StellaLou will be hosted at the Storytellers Statue on March 8 – the first day of the spring season at the resort and International Women’s Day – and will feature Minnie Mouse, Daisy, ShellieMay and other friends from Mickey Avenue, as StellaLou makes her first official appearance in Shanghai.
From March 8, guests will have the opportunity to meet StellaLou on Mickey Avenue, and get a first look at more than 20 brand-new StellaLou merchandise offerings launching at Sweethearts Confectionery, which has been transformed for her arrival. The new lineup includes 16 exclusive items ranging from specially-designed limited edition pins to chic jewelry, phone cases and more. Plus, Remy’s Patisserie and Il Paperino will be serving up some sweet new treats to celebrate her arrival, like key lime milkshakes, blueberry parfaits, macaroon gift boxes, jasmine cheesecakes topped with mini StellaLou chocolates, and a collectible StellaLou drink goblet. Guests visiting Disneytown this spring may also see StellaLou during pop-up performances from Friday to Sunday.
New Spring Performances with Duffy’s friend StellaLou
This spring, the Mickey Avenue Disney friends will be on hand to welcome StellaLou with style. The new “Duffy and Friends” show takes place in front of the Whistle Stop Shop and will feature a group of dancers alongside Mickey, Minnie, Duffy, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and of course StellaLou. Guests will be invited to join the show as StellaLou leads everyone in a fun choreographed number. In addition, both Gelatoni and StellaLou will join the cast of “Zao Shang Hao, Mickey”, the popular character gathering in Celebration Square every morning from March 9 to June 1, 2018.
