Shellie May is ready to ride

Since it was early in the morning, Shellie May got a seat all by herself!

(At least long enough to snap a cute photo.)

Let us design a monstrosity at Test Track

I think this might have been the time where the people assigned ahead of us just randomly bailed, so my BFF got to design her own car, and Shellie May and I got to design our own car together. Score!

And...this was the best we could come up with.

I guess we need some more practice before we become car engineers.

Lost in Epcot

So my BFF assumed I knew where I was going, what with my adoration of Epcot, and I assumed she knew where she was going, what with her localness. Long story short...

...we got some fountain pictures.

On our way to EPCOT with Shellie May

Oh my that the best park in Florida across that meadow?!

(For the record, my BFF would vote "no.")



I am glad that I brought Shellie May with me. She and I ogled Epcot while my BFF, a Florida native and former local, was less impressed.

Tut, tut, it looks like rain

It was an inauspicious start to our day. Sure looks like it will be rainy!

Fortunately, our bus had an Anna for Shellie May to pose with!

Duffy on a bus and POP Century

We took a bus back to Animal Kingdom. We could have gone back to the park to use our Fastpass+ for Expedition Everest, but meeeeeh. Then we caught a bus back to POP Century.

Before I forgot, I took some pictures of POP Century.

The bathroom in the dining hall was garish but I kind of loved it.

Sundries at POP Century, January 2014.

There were numerous shadowboxes from different generations. This one was great because My Little Ponies!

This goes along with the '50s section where we are staying.

I think POP Century is the only resort that offers consistent time travel through several decades.

Yes, POP Century is garish, but I kind of love it.

The pool was deserted almost the whole time we were there...too cold! Poor lifeguards looked bored.

Lady was on the way to our room.

When we got back, we found Mintsy trying to entertain herself. Poor thing!

Sundries and exploring at Animal Kingdom Lodge

If you ever wanted to see what sundries they had at Animal Kingdom Lodge in January 2014...

The lobby is an interesting place!

Duffy on a bus

We spent a lot of time on buses. I got a bit tired of seeing some of the ads...

But right now it is early in our trip so I wasn't totally tired of buses yet!

Duffy in the rain

Hi there, Tree of Life!

If I would have known it was going to rain instantly, I would have waited a few minutes to go shopping. Oh well.

Our original plan had been to stay until close so we could marathon Expedition Everest, but the drizzle--and the fact that we had already ridden it 4 times--made visiting Animal Kingdom Lodge sound pretty good!

Duffy and a parade

So we watched about 30 seconds of the parade at Animal Kingdom.

If you look real close you can see Donald!

Then we did a bit of shopping, since we hadn't managed any.

This Valentine's Duffy/Minnie was out.

I found the kiss especially creepy. Kind of like she took a bite out of poor Duffy. Anyway, I did not buy one. :)

Duffy and food

We decided to spend another snack credit...

I think this was some sort of coffee cake! Not bad, and not TOO messy.

Duffy may be a little jealous

"Hey! Take pictures of me!" said Duffy.

OK, yeah, we were kind of on the wrong side of the vehicle.

At least some other people had trouble seeing too. Look at those necks crane!

Love the lions! Even Duffy admitted they were pretty cool.
