Duffy and Shellie May keeping cool in Minnie's House

"Our trip in March 2015 was very very hot--hotter than at home!" said Duffy.

"But we know how to keep cool!" said Shellie May.

"Our human says she wants to make these cookies," says Shellie May. "I am worried they may not taste very good, though."

Duffy and Shellie May eating at Minnie's

"Those no-calorie cookies are not very good," said Shellie May.

(They are holograms!)

"Our human's friend suggested this picture," said Duffy.  "Wasn't that smart of her?"

Shellie May and Duffy on Gadget's Go-Coaster

"FIRST RIDE on the Go-Coaster!" said Shellie May.

And here is some scenery.

"Our human took SO MANY PICTURES of all of these things when she was younger. She even made a little cardboard model of the place for her Gadget doll!"

"But that was before I was even born," said Duffy. "The human says that blueprint didn't used to be there. I think Gadget put it up to shade the Cast Member."

"The domino gates certainly weren't always there either," said Shellie May, "but Gadget wanted to make the waiting area safer. Now they keep people from getting into the roller coaster cars until they are ready!"


"Hey," said Duffy, "the human says that they used to have "blankets" made out of gum wrappers, she thinks...)

"I mean, WHEEEEEEE!"

"Then we went around and rode again and again. I think three times?" said Shellie May. "We were in a hurry to ride before the lines got long... MINI-MARATHON!"

Duffy and Shellie May with Gadget's mailbox

"Gadget's mailbox has also moved a lot through the years," said Duffy. "At least, according to our human. It used to be out in the bushes before you get this far....and it used to have a bell on it that would ring whenever the mailman or mailwoman would leave her mail!"

"I hear that Gadget is very smart!" said Shellie May.

Duffy and Shellie May at Gadget's Go-Coaster

"We hurried to Gadget's Go-Coaster as soon as they let us into Toontown," said Shellie May. "This used to be my human's FAVORITE ride because she LOVES GADGET!"

"If you talk to her, she could tell you about all the different color changes," said Duffy. "When she first rode after it opened, the shutters were blue, not brown!"

Duffy and Shellie May waiting for Toontown to open

"Toontown usually opens an hour after Disneyland opens, so here we are waiting," says Duffy.

"WOW! MINNIE!" says Shellie May.

While we were waiting, a Cast Member recognized Duffy. He said something like, "Yeah, I kept trying to invite Duffy to dinner, but he kept turning me down. He said, 'I'm already stuffed.'"

Ha ha ha :) (Duffy was just happy to be recognized, to be honest)

Shellie May with another tiny village

"Um...I think this is from Alice in Wonderland? We are on the wrong side and I already forgot what our tour guide was talking about..."

Shellie May in Storybookland

"That roof is SO CUTE!I think it is where the seven dwarfs live!"

"It's Cinderella Castle! And also Shadow Bear! BE CAREFUL CINDERELLA SHADOW BEAR IS COMING TO GET YOU!"

"Tee hee.  I am just kidding.  It was just one of my human's Notably Bad Pictures."

Duffy and Shellie May with a lighthouse

"Wow!" said Shellie May. "This reminds me a little bit of Cape Cod in Tokyo Disneysea!"

(This is actually near Storybookland Canal Boats.)

Tinkerbell and Fawn with Duffy and Shellie May

The fairies were very sweet. They said I must be an animal-talent AND a tinker-talent fairy, since I take care of Duffy and Shellie May (Fawn was impressed that they didn't smell bad or anything) and make them clothes!

They kind of pouted over which talent is better.

"Um...I must be somewhere in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye...I guess....  It is a good thing there is that tiny light back there. Otherwise I would be scared."

Duffy and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye

"It took like 4 shots to get this photo," said Duffy. "Fortunately there was no one behind us in line at Indiana Jones."

Shellie May and Duffy by Rapunzel's Tower

" not think this is to scale," said Duffy.

"Also, isn't it supposed to be in the middle of a hidden clearing?"

"There must be some special pixie dust here," said Shellie May.

"Or maybe it is a lovely replica," said Duffy.

Shellie May and Duffy meet Cinderella

If I had to guess, I'd think that the characters are told that they are not allowed to pose for a picture holding anything. Some of the characters were happy to hold them anyway. Some others...not so much.

Shellie May and Duffy waiting

"Our human's friend was excited to meet characters, so we are actually waiting for....Princess Fantasy Faire!"

Shellie May and Duffy at Disneyland!

We made it to Disneyland for rope drop!

"I--am--so--excited! Like a Muppet! You are not a bad photographer at all!!!"

"Our human is not very patient when she is in a hurry to beat the crowds, so the photographs are not the best..."

Saturday, May 2, 2015

It is almost time for Disneyland!

"Our human was sleeping on an air mattress,"said Shellie May. "You can see her blanket that has Mickey on it!"

"And soon we will be going to Disneyland!!!"

Duffy with World of Color (not really) and Fireworks (kind of)

"Hey! World of Color in Downtown Disney!"

Actually, it was just one giant fountain. I got this picture for my friend since her camera did not want to take a good picture of it. (As you can camera did not really want to take a good picture of it either...)

And then on the way back to the hotel, we saw fireworks!

This was in March 2015, when they had a very short fireworks show playing...only about 5 minutes! So we only saw it from outside, and that was OK.
