One of the primary reasons for Bluey’s absence from Disney parks could be attributed to the fact that she is a character from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and produced by Ludo Studio, which limits the character’s presence in other themed American entertainment venues such as Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort.

The licensing and intellectual property rights surrounding Bluey also play a role in her absence from Disney parks. G

iven that Bluey is a relatively new and rapidly growing brand, the negotiations and agreements required to feature her in a Disney park attraction may still be in progress or have not yet been fully realized. Disney may have the rights to the show on Disney+, but the company still has not been able to secure the rights in the theme park.
