Pretty queue...

...camera that doesn't auto-adjust to the dark so well.

Right now is the exact moment I realize that I told myself I don't need to go to Disneyland again until I've published all the Tiny Duffy pictures. Which means there's no reason for me to just publish one cruddy picture per day. So again, let's try the next one in line.

YES! TWO cruddy pictures in a day! Woo-hoo! I can smell those churros already!

(If I have a picture that's not awful, I'll still post it solo though. :) )

This is a tale about Captain Jack Sparrow

Actually, I'm old enough to remember not only a day when Pirates of the Caribbean didn't have any reference to Jack Sparrow, but--if you believe it--I remember when he wasn't even in the ride!

Actually, I even remember when the pirate in front of the barrel said he'd be willin' to share...and he wasn't talking about food.

Wow, now I feel old. :(

Pictures before rides???

OK, tiny bears. One picture in New Orleans Square before we ride Pirates of the Caribbean. Eesh! You'd think they'd be more excited.

(Don't tell anyone, but I think Tiny Shellie May might have been slightly afraid of the water and/or the drop.)


Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May be about ready t' be embarkin' on one o' th' other best rides at Disneyland Park. ARRRRR!

(Actually, it had just come back from a lengthy rehab a couple days prior, so we were careful to do it early...the lines got really long later.)

Hidden Duffy!

Can you spot Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May inside the queue for Space Mountain?

Almost on Tiny Shellie May's second thrill ride!

Someone's camera doesn't like the shade very much.

"Hurry up, Tiny Duffy!" said Tiny Shellie May.

(Tiny Duffy AND Mom both got a bit tired with the long walk...but short lines!)

Fastpass time!

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May get Fastpasses for Star Tours as soon as Magic Morning ends!

Tiny bears do not need Fastpasses. They can usually con a human into taking them on a ride with them. They are very cute.

To make up for that notably bad picture, let's add the next picture I have!

OooooK then. Don't say I didn't try.

Whatever. We're on our way to the best ride ever, SPACE MOUNTAIN!

Really, seatbelts fastened

I made sure the tiny bears were safely buckled in front of the largest person in the car.


The ride was scary enough the tiny bears were glad to be comparatively safe...actually, I think they were afraid to be jostled out!

Seatbelts fastened, tiny bears

"But we can't find the seatbelts!" said Tiny Duffy.

"I think I can hold on," said Tiny Shellie May.

Monday, February 20, 2012

Are we there yet?

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May are about to experience their first thrill ride! Which is also Disneyland's first thrill ride. I think it's fitting.

Don't look! Don't look!

Then a really nice woman offered to take my picture with the tiny bears. I am not photogenic like they are. :(

Duffies in front

I guess the tiny bears will probably have to sit in front of me in the bobsled.

Saturday, February 18, 2012

Oh dear

Oh dear; I accidentally posted a duplicate photo! :(

So we'll steal one from ::gasp:: outside of Disneyland.

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May totally stole this chocolate bear from me.

"It's okay," Tiny Duffy said. "You're bigger than us, so we're not bullying you!"


Are we still waiting?

Maybe the line for the Matterhorn wasn't THAT short.

Friday, February 17, 2012

Not much of a line for the Matterhorn

This was to be the last time we would ride the Matterhorn with the old bobsleds. Mom stayed behind on this one...the Matterhorn is really jerky!

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May enjoyed riding Alice in Wonderland. The outdoor parts are kind of the best, I think. Even with the fencing.

I'll bet it would be a bit more fun if they'd face forward. Then again, maybe not.

Tuesday, February 14, 2012


"Tiny Shellie May," said Tiny Duffy. "Lick that mushroom that looks like cheese!"



Monday, February 13, 2012

Can you tell...

...that Alice in Wonderland was a bit of a line, even during the Magic Morning? It just gets longer during the day.

Fortunately, there are lots of photo ops! For tiny bears, anyway.

Alice in Wonderland is Colorful

Even with the fencing, Alice in Wonderland is still very colorful.

The sunlight really brings out the blue in tiny Shellie May's pretty eyes.

Adventure at Alice in Wonderland

You want danger?

How many kids do you think have licked this railing? Do you think they sanitize it overnight?

Saturday, February 11, 2012

I hate safety

Poor Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May never got to ride Alice in Wonderland before they put up the ugly fencing and platforms. :( I miss when it had that illusion of danger.

King Arthur Carrousel

In small form I thought this was another of those notably terrible pictures...but I hadn't noticed the lights on the carrousel under the canopy.

"Can we ride?" the tiny bears asked.

"Not now...we don't want to waste our Magic Morning on a ride we can ride later."

Back Side of the Castle

It was STILL our Magic Morning! I love Disneyland when it's not too very busy.

So do Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May!

This doesn't look so scary...

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May ride Snow White's Scary Adventures!

Actually, with the lighting, it DOES look a bit scary. (And it only gets worse!)

Hello from the Wicked Queen's Dungeon!

Tiny Bears make a dungeon fun!

OK, Tiny Bears and Disney magic, coupled with a safe distance from the shackles, make a dungeon fun.

Still in Toad Hall

I never stopped to really look at the details in Toad Hall, but looking at this photo, it looks like it would be a very nice place to live.

Well, if you removed the switchbacks, maybe.

Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May let me get one picture of them on Peter Pan Flight. Then they wanted to fly around London and Neverland and stuff, so that's all I got. :)

Board your pirate ship!

So the ride operator was the first Disney Cast Member to comment on Tiny Duffy and Tiny Shellie May! She loved tiny bears. She also seemed surprised to find that you can buy Tiny Duffy in Disneyland.
