The new bushy-tailed character will celebrate her arrival at the park with exclusive themed merchandise, special entertainment, and food and beverage items.

LinaBell has an “innocent nature, along with curiosity and wisdom,” Disney says, and she uses her signature magnifying glass to help teach others about “things that are right in front of their eyes.”

LinaBell’s backstory

LinaBell met Duffy the Disney Bear when he was following a butterfly in the forest and got lost. She used her magnifying glass to examine “clues” that would help her and Duffy figure out where he’d come from, and her excellent detective skills helped Duffy reunite with Mickey Mouse. Now, Duffy and his friends are in awe of her problem-solving abilities.
