    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Just some Spring Voyage images I want to share:

    Since we liked the artwork for the park event, I would like to share some pieces of artwork from the event, one from last and one from last year.

    (Spring Voyage 2012)

    Here we see Mickey and Duffy, with Mickey carrying the duffel bag while Duffy is inside the bag riding along with Mickey.

    (Spring Voyage 2013)

    And we see Mickey and Duffy in their familiar outfits. Mickey is seen giving Duffy a piggyback ride.

    I've followed her on Facebook for awhile now, also. She posts some great photos and I love sharing them on Shellie May's facebook page! We are big fans of her and of aimster's facebook pages!

    Yeah my friend has some REALLY cute photos on her page. She calls her bears her "kids", like we all pretty much are with our bears. And she gives all her bears unique names. Her original Duffy she calls "Duffay" and her original Shellie May she calls :May May". The newer 17" Duffy she recently got she calls "Duppy" and the other Shellie May is "Mary". She named her new smailing Duffy "Dazs"... not sure what she named smiling Shellie May yet. I like it... it's really cute. I call my Duffy "Duffles" sometimes as a nickname and he likes it.

    Oh, I'm sorry for mis-viewing! The quality isn't very clear, and it flashed by so quickly, I couldn't really tell--with everything in motion, I assumed the less-feminine hats/suspenders/etc. were men's costumes. (Which is an unfair assumption on my own part, but the commercial gives such brief flashes of blurry information, and it's an official video--in America, a Disney commercial would probably not have all women, with some dressed up girly and some dressed up not girly--so I just jumped to that conclusion.) In one shot, only pausing to examine the shoes (!) (which I don't think match the clothes at all) shows me that particular shot is of a woman.

    Anyway, that's much less cool, OLC. My apologies again.

    But I'm so glad you have your shopping done, DuffyD! Hope you feel better soon.

    If anyone wants to follow Aimster's aforementioned friend, she has a Facebook page at Duffy and Shellie May | Facebook She has some super-cute photos and seems to visit TDS a whole lot!

    If I visited that often, I could imagine taking 6 bears once to get some cool photos (especially if I had someone to back me up, as I suspect she might have)...though I honestly prefer to take one smaller bear. Just the right size for hugging. Maybe I'll think about taking my two largest bears next time I have a multi-day stay; size-wise, two smaller bears (like Spring Voyage bears and the 12" Duffy) aren't much bigger than one regular bear, though it's two "bodies" to think of. (I don't really pack light, though...I brought a fabric grocery bag to the parks just to hold water bottles, a few odds and ends, and Shellie May if I felt like it. :shy: )

    O.O Oh wow DuffyD I wouldn't have thought you'd be done the shopping already. I hope everything had gone ok. We all are so grateful for you.

    Thanks, MikkiMausu99! I really like that video! Last year's seemed more like it was a small girl dreaming of adventuring with her Duffy. This one certainly has a broader range of ages and even genders.

    Duffy and Shellie May for everyone!
    I only see women holding Duffy in that video, which I can't help taking kind of personally. They are very aware of me, I know. And I can think of at least three other men very quickly whom I've seen in the parks taking photos. The others all have more than one or two. There are more and more high school and junior high school boys with Duffy, too, who seem to have him cos they like him, not just cos their girlfriend made them pair up. Not having males in the commercial, especially after this week, feels like a particularly stinging slap in the face, although it doesn't include older people or "foreigners," either. A Spring Voyage ad that really pushed the idea of Duffy being loved by every demographic in every corner of the world would be really nice to see. And if it was actually animated, like Yumeko's life story, that would be really special. Different ages and races all in love with Duffy. I know it isn't personal, though. Just typical OLC limiting their focus to twentysomething ladies. If they marketed to men more, branded to men more, made it seem "normal" for men to want to go to TDR (as many males do, in groups of males, at all ages), more men would go. Unfortunately, their branding makes it feel effeminate to be "too" into Disney. Duffy the adventurer could fix that. Duffy, Mickey's klutzy sidekick or itty bitty baby son isn't the solution. I'm in a terrible funk. But the SV13 shopping is done. I guess that's good.

    Eeee-va: Yes, they have some different eggs at Epcot. Figment, Perry the Platypus, Chip, Dale, Daisy, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Mickey and Minnie. But from what I can tell, the "prizes" are the same!

    I can't imagine carrying 6 bears, 2 is my limit! Thank goodness I live so close to the parks that we go quite a bit. It seems that more recently I have been taking both my bears with me, but if I just take one, it's usually Shellie May. The only downside to that is she gets a lot of attention, so sometimes it becomes a little annoying having to repeat myself all day. It's a lot easier talking with cast members. But some days I'm just not in the mood to talk to strangers.:shy:

    That's why I only usually bring just one bear with me to the parks (unless it's for something special). I try to pack as little as possible into whatever bag I'm using but it still ends up being too heavy sometimes and my shoulder is killing me by the end of the day. Over in Japan they'll carry a armful of bears with them and not think twice. :lol:

    I know when I go, I carry as little as possible. Even a sweater in case it gets chilly becomes a resented item.

    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Yeah, but how does she go on rides, or sit at a table or on a bench to eat or rest? How does she carry them all? Recalling DuffyD's Shopping Day adventure, I cannot imagine how she can manage to carry her personal stuff, her purchases, and six (6) bears. Even with a huge tote bag, not everyone is going to fit and constantly having to readjust and re-position the tote bag, to accommodate the additional weight and cumbersomeness, would irk me throughout the day. I know two (2) are "only" 12" bears, but carrying four (4) 17" bears is an endeavor in and of itself. I feel like at some point, someone would accidentally get left behind, even if only for a fleetingly brief moment, or that someone would fall out the bag. Plus, I feel like within an hour of arrival at the park or shortly after shopping at one (1) store, I'd be ready to just shove my tote full of bears in a locker and call it a day for the ones I couldn't carry. Whomever I felt like carrying would get to enjoy sharing the rest of the adventures with me. But eventually, I'd feel guilty and constantly have to swap bears. Your friend must have mad-crazy organizational skills.

    She's got one of the big Spring Voyage tote bags she's carrying some of them around in but... six?? I can't imagine.

    I'm so jealous of one of my friends in Tokyo who has been to Spring Voyage 2 or 3 times already this week! She was also carrying SIX bears around with her (two 17" Duffys, two 17" Shellie Mays and one each of the new smiling Duffy & Shellie May). I thought just carrying around both of my bears was a pain but... SIX? :blink:
    SIX?!?! Wow, I salute her skills and fortitude.

    We did the egg hunt at Epcot today. It took us about an hour to complete. It was really fun and since we are passholders, it makes trips to the parks more fun when there is new stuff to do!

    At TDL they moved them around every month, and the event went on for 3 months, so they moved 3 times. I'll bet since DCA's is "limited time magic" that they might not move them, but who knows?

    Went yesterday and it was pretty fun! One of the eggs took us a while to find but most were relatively easy. We got a Tinker Bell/stars Vinylmation keyring (bf and I only purchased one map) that I picked out from underneath a green egg.

    The hidden eggs also do not change locations by day so once you've seen spoilers, you know where they're always gonna be. Do they move them around at TDL?

    Thanks for that link, Eeee-va! It looks really fun but I don't think the key chains are enought motivation for me. If they had a spring or Easter theme I think that would be a different story. My husband and I will be at DCA Saturday though and I'll enjoy looking out for the eggs even if we don't officially participate.
