Duffy and World of Color

I LOVE Paradise Pier at night!


Long story short, we did not get the very best view, but that's OK. Or at least it was OK for me!

So, Duffy...how did you like California Screamin'?

...Duffy? Are you OK?


"I'm all right!"


My Best Florida Friend told me that if you scream on drops it makes them not bother your stomach. Worked for me! Though it probably didn't hurt that we were riding at night, so the pretty lights distracted me. :)

Duffy looks contemplative

"Hm," says Duffy. "Am I really ready to go on California Screamin'?"


I'm not sure I was, but we decided to go, since we'd never tried it at night before. (Okay, Duffy had never been at all!)

Duffy is ready to soar

After a looon day, dear Shellie May was all tuckered out!

The Grand Californian has this beautiful area up top...you can view World of Color from there (sort of). But I loved to just go up there and admire the view of the beautiful park below!


We went to...Soarin'!


RIP, acceptance of late Fastpass returns.

Shellie May at RS

"Radiator Springs Racers was SO MUCH FUN!"


"Look! That hill says RS! That's for Radiator Springs, right?" Shellie May paused. "Actually, it looks a little like PS from here."

She paused again.

"PS, I am sleepy and I love you."

Awwww. I think it is time to give Shellie May a hug and take her back to the room!

My favorite picture of Shellie May


I thought this little Anime sweatdrop-looking droplet was cute (until I saw it too many places!).


"Isn't that bridge in the movie?" asked Shellie May.

Here comes my favorite picture I've ever taken of her, I think...


"We are going for a DRIVE!"

Shellie May at Radiator Springs Racers

Who would have thought such a small sign would lead to such a big line?


"But it's all right!" said Shellie May. "We have Fastpasses!!!"


"WOW!!!! This looks like Arizona!!!!"

I'm pretty sure Radiator Springs is in Arizona (on the map at the end of the film, it certainly is! and I even saw a picture INSIDE Cars Land that put Radiator Springs in-between two towns/cities in Arizona). I guess that's why they call the version in California "Cars Land."

Shellie May and Mater (again)

We sat here and rested for a while.

"Can we ride again???" asked Shellie May.


Actually, for all the waiting we did, we probably could have.

But, "No," I said. "Because we have to ride Radiator Springs Racers soon."

"Aw." She paused. "Wait. I mean, YAY!"

Mater's Jukebox with Shellie May

"Wow!" said Shellie May. "Mater's Jukebox!!!"


We had fun getting squished on Mater's! Then I had to take a break.


"I am not a woman or a car," said Shellie May. "Where do I go if I need to rest?"

Cars Land is Busy

"Wow! You caught the yellow light lit up!" said Shellie May.


Did I mention she's easily impressed? Cars Land WAS very pretty, though difficult to photograph due to crowds.

Shellie May likes plaques too

I really like this plaque...in memory of them making Disney California Adventure really special, instead of just kind of fun.


Buena Vista Street is just gorgeous!


"I think you may have already shared that sentiment," said Shellie May.

I think she's right.

Shellie May in Monstropolis

"There has been a human child sighted!" cried Shellie May.


"AGH! I'm sitting right next to a human too!"

"You just like to scream, don't you?" I asked.

"YES!!!"

Shops on Buena Vista Street

From November 1, 2012





"Mickey gingerbread!" said Shellie May. "It's soo good!!!"


I'd had better Mickey gingerbread, but I saw no need to let her know that.

A ton more seating than I'd expected inside!

Shellie May in Buena Vista Street

"It's An Arca!" said Shellie May. "What's an Arca?"


"I think we're missing some of the writing," I said.

Shellie May by Ariel's Undersea Adventure

"I love this ride!" says Shellie May. "It's my favorite!"


"I think every ride is your favorite," I said.

"I think you're right!" she replied.

Shellie May and the Golden Zephyr

"That looks so fun!" Shellie May said. "Can I really ride it?"


"Well," I said slowly....


"...yes!"

"YAY!"

On to the Golden Zephyr

Shellie May liked looking at the Silly Symphony Swings, even if she had to watch them from a basket.


"What is this ride?" asked Shellie May.

"It's the Golden Zephyr," I said.

"Can I ride?" asked Shellie May.


"Yes!" I said.

Shellie May and the Silly Symphony Swings

"Wow!" said Shellie May. "That looks like FUN! Can I ride?"


"I don't know," I murmured.


"Look!" she said. "I am tall enough to ride, aren't I?"

"I don't think it counts unless your paws are on the ground," I said.

"Aw."
