Shellie May at Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta

"That looks so good!" said Shellie May.

I love the atmosphere of Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta/Paradise Garden Grill!

Back to the Grand Californian

After a long morning, we made our way back to our fabulous room!

"This balcony is very nice!" said Tiny Duffy.

Shellie May, meet Duffy!

"WOW!" Shellie May squealed. "Santa Duffy, you are SO BIG!"

Someday, I will get a good photo of me hugging Duffy. Someday.

Shellie May on Toy Story Midway Mania at Disneyland

"WOW!" said Shellie May. "I have a REAL CANNON!"

"This isn't dangerous, right?"

"I think we'll be okay," I said.


My friend beat me and Shellie May.

Shellie May is so fashionable!

"I think these are very pretty on me," said Shellie May. "Don't you?"

Actually, yellow isn't a bad color on her, now that I look at it.

Still waiting

I wonder why the queue of Toy Story is so...well, definitely looks old-fashioned, but not interesting.

Of course, Space Mountain's queue is boring too.

"I think they are both fun!" said Shellie May.

Of course she would. :)

Shellie May near California Screamin'

"That sure is a big roller coaster right next to us!" said Shellie May.

"I think I'd be scared to ride it," she added.

"Me too," I said. "But I'm going to anyway."

Shellie May's eyes went very round.

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Guess where we are?

"If I smile real wide, no one will notice that we missed yesterday's post, will they?" asked Shellie May.

"I hope so," I said.

Shellie May loves Buena Vista Street

"Buena Vista Street is so cool!!!!"

Not that we'd really seen much of it...the line for Radiator Springs Racers stopped around Carthay Circle Theater.

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Entering DCA

Sure looks like we're working on getting Fastpasses for Radiator Springs Racers!

"So wait," says Shellie May. "We're in a line so we can get a ticket that lets us wait in another line?"



I know I told my BFF at least that she could go get some Starbucks while I waited in line, but she declined. (Even though I had Shellie May to keep me company and everything!)

Leaving Disneyland on a high note

So what's the smart thing to do after Space Mountain?

Disney California Adventure! Yay!

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage - Part 19

It's been a while!

We are walking alongside the train track. We could have taken the train (26) but that would've been a long wait, and we didn't have that much time left!

27! Natives and Newcomers!

It was pretty hot, so I think the reenactor was pretty lonely...we had the site to ourselves.

"Those Native American beds are not that uncomfortable," said Tiny Duffy.

"I would rather look at the corn than have to grind it," said Tiny Shellie May.

"I wish we had a waterwheel," said Tiny Duffy.

These houses were neat, but I like my house better!

Shellie May on Space Mountain

Ignore the camera strap.

"WHEEEEEE!" said Shellie May. "This is so much FUN!!!!!"

We had not started moving yet. She was a little afraid of the dark parts and the ghosts in Ghost Galaxy, but I held her paw and she was fine. Me too.

Shellie May at Space Mountain

"Space Mountain?"

"Ghost Galaxy," said Shellie May. "Is it scary? I think this will be scary."

"Maybe a little," I said.

"I also think it will be fun," she said decisively.

Is this Pinocchio?

I think this is at the Pinocchio ride, but I don't know.

I personally think it is scarier than Snow White (those poor donkey boys!). Then again, the ending of Snow White makes me laugh.

Snow White's Scary Adventures with Shellie May

"What a cute cottage!" said Shellie May.

"Wait. Those are awfully big shadows. Snow White's Scary Adventures...they're not...scary, are they? :( "

"I will hug you close and you will be fine," I said.

To Alice in Wonderland!

Once our brains were sufficiently addled, we stumbled our way over to Alice in Wonderland.

It was way more fun without the ugly "safety" features, but it's still fun.

Besides, given how hyper and how dizzy Shellie May is, maybe extra railings are a good idea.

Inside Toad Hall

"Toad Hall is SO ELEGANT!"

"But I always thought frogs were slimy," said Shellie May.

"Maybe," I said, "but a lot of them are royalty. Like Prince Naveen and Princess Tiana."

"Wow! You're right! I wonder if Mr. Toad needs kissed too."

My BFF said Mr. Toad's Wild ride was nice and nostalgic. :)

Teacups with a Hyper Bear can be Dangerous

"Oh wow we got the purple teacup just like I wanted and we're going to spin SO FAST and it's going to be SO MUCH FUN and look the teacup kind of matches my dress and WOW I'm already dizzy!!!!"

I started to wonder if this might be a mistake.

Chinese lanterns

"I love the music!" said Shellie May.

"I love the Chinese lanterns! I LOVE DISNEYLAND!"

This will be her third ride. Ever, I think (unless she had an adventure in Tokyo DisneySea that I don't know about).

Tea for...four and four for fun!

So where do you take a hyper young bear to burn off some energy?

Actually, we wanted to take her to Mr. Toad. Well, more like we wanted to take my BFF to Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, since she missed the ride from Florida. But for some reason it and Alice in Wonderland (which in my experience gets longer lines during Magic Morning) was CLOSED! So, here's where we ended up.

"Oh wow they are so pretty and I love the lamps!" said Shellie May.

"I hope we get the purple teacup."

I hope there isn't caffeine at this tea party.

Done with Dumbo

"Oh no! We're going lower! Is the ride over?"

Alas, yes, our time on Dumbo was drawing to a close. (If you squint you may be able to see my friend.)

"Oh, that was SO FUN!" said Shellie May as she stumbled out of the elephant-car. "What can we do now???"

What do you think we should do next, dear reader?

Tuesday, January 8, 2013


"OH WOW look how high we are I'm so excited this is way more fun than Peter Pan Flight hey wait a minute are we going in a circle? and it's kinda cloudy isn't it? but wheeeeeeeee! The air feels so good in my fur! I am having SO MUCH FUN!"

I swear I had not fed Shellie May any sugar.

Flying with Dumbo and Shellie May - WHEEEEEE


"WHEEEEE!!!! Construction walls!!!!!!!!!"

(Those were from the 2012 refurbishment of Storybookland Canal Boats and  Casey Jr. Circus Train.)

About to fly with the elephants

We are finally in our elephant!

"Please do not stow me with your hat," said Shellie May.

"WOW! Look at the fountain!"

"I am ready to fly!"

Funny that we started the day flying with Peter Pan and now we are flying with Dumbo.

Almost to Dumbo

"Oh boy! Almost there!"

Yes, these photos looked better while I was taking them. Darn it, Dumbo. Be more photogenic.

Shellie May with the back side of Dumbo

Shellie May had a great time on Peter Pan Flight. Next stop was Dumbo!

Shellie May is cute enough, she even makes the back side of Dumbo look OK!

Ohai Peter Pan!

"Can I ride your ride now?" asked Tiny Shellie May. "Can I can I can I???"

"Hurry! This way to Neverland!"

It was a very short line, since we had walked our fastest and beat a lot of people over there, with the longer walk (all the way around the castle instead of over the drawbridge, due to the impending parade filming).

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

In front of Peter Pan Flight

This was the first Thursday in November, but they had the castle blocked off because of the parade filming that was happening that weekend. Which means the Magic Morning crowds got a bit confused. We went around to the right of the castle and wound our way all the way back...

If you want to tour Fantasyland during Magic Morning, you ALWAYS ride Peter Pan Flight first!
