Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina

G’day, everyone, just thought I’d write a little update concerning our two new kittens, Rosalina and Carmelita.  Both kittens had several vet visits recently to finish their vaccines and to take care of a little tapeworm issue, but other than that, they’ve been quite happy and healthy and have grown a bit, too!  Carmelita was a whopping six pounds when last we checked, while tiny Rosalina, probably the runt, was only three or four (I forget…or she gained a pound between vet appointments).

The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 2

Last time, I discussed Disneyland rides ranking from #11-21.  Now it’s time to get to the good stuff, the Duck’s top 10 Disneyland rides!  Let’s just get on with it! Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 2

The Duck’s Disneyland Attraction Tour 2019 Part 1

I’ve already discussed my most recent Disneyland trip in a 3-part post.  And I’ve ranked all of the food and desserts we have had so far last week, as well.  All that leaves now is the best part of all, the rides.  As I always do, I like to create a grand list of every ride (and show, as the Enchanted Tiki Room is now getting a place in this list) we’ve ever been on, including those we haven’t done recently.  Keep in mind that this list is going to be generally as unbiased as I can make it.  I mean, of course a list ranking Disneyland’s attractions in order of my preference is going to be biased, but I’m at least not going to let my terror during a few of them cloud my judgement.  (Also, italics mean I didn’t visit the attraction during our most recent trip.)  So, from least great to most great, read on to discover the Duck’s Disney rides ranking from 11-21!

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

In my last post, I ranked the foods we ate at Disneyland, and this time, we get to the good stuff, the desserts.  I’m going to rank some things we had in previous years (in italics), as well, but if you want to read my 2017 post and 2018 post, here they be.  Now, without further ado… Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

The Duck’s Disneyland Food Tour 2019

As I’ve done for the last two years, I wanted to rank every food and dessert (in the next post) that we ate at Disneyland, with the ones that we didn’t actually have this time being in italics.  If you’re interested in reading my food rankings from previous years, you can find 2017 here and 2018 here.  So let’s waste no time!

Disneyland 2019 Part 3: Haunted Mansion Foods and Unexpected Scoldings

At last, we have arrived at the second and final day at Disneyland.  I’d like to start by saying that, with the exception of about 1-2 hours of sleep after the Haunted Mansion Anniversary, we ended up staying awake for around 44 hours straight over the course of our trip.  How we managed to stem the tide of sleepiness, I have no idea.  But we did, so let’s get on with the post. Continue reading Disneyland 2019 Part 3: Haunted Mansion Foods and Unexpected Scoldings

Disneyland 2019 Part 2: Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary

Mother Duck and I arrived back outside Disneyland at 11:30 PM on August 8, a mere half hour before the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary.  The space between Disneyland and DCA was practically packed with row after row of people, many in attire ranging from Haunted Mansion t-shirts to full costumes and face paint and all of them wearing their purple lanyards signifying them as attendees of the event to come.  Waiting outside the park many hours after sundown as a half-moon shone down on us, while a variety of Disney songs played over the speakers, including the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song (both the movie and the ride version) and the theme from the Electrical Parade, was a truly surreal experience indeed.

Disneyland 2019 Part 1: Before the Event

In a recent post, I mentioned that there was something special I wanted to share with you all concerning the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary.  Well, Mother Duck and I recently took a trip to Disneyland!  We originally had no intention of going this year, but once I heard they were having a special event planned celebrating the Haunted Mansion turning half a century old, I couldn’t resist!  We had a two-day trip, and I’m going to be talking about both of our days in a 3-part post, after which I’ll discuss food and rides, just as I did last year and the year before that! Continue reading Disneyland 2019 Part 1: Before the Event

Comicon 2019: Tentacle Kitties and Mythbusters

As I do nearly every year, the Duck enjoys visiting the comic convention.  Not only is it a fun way to explore all things geeky and nerdy, but it’s also the only time I can dress up as a video game character without looking like a weirdo.  Even though this was the first year in a while that I didn’t have a new costume to wear, it was still a fun and exciting day filled with unique vendors, movie cars, Lego displays, and more.  With the obligatory opening paragraph out of the way, let’s discuss…comicon 2019! Continue reading Comicon 2019: Tentacle Kitties and Mythbusters

The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 3

The final ride-ranking post is here, where we discuss the best of the best.  Even if one of these supposedly best rides caused no shortage of terror in the Duck and Mother Duck.  And in case you’re curious about part 2, it can be found here.
