    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    The medallions DuffyD sent me for the first round of Sweet Duffy have Duffy on a chair (waving), Shellie May on a chair (not waving), and "Cape Cod COOK-OFF My Friend Duffy" with Mickey's disembodied head (and his hand; he's saluting!) and Duffy's head with his sailor hat. They're lovely! I believe the ones of Duffy and Shellie May separate match the notebook merchandise that came out a while back. (Also, they are in BEAR CHAIRS! Sorry; I just like that phrase.)

    It looks like they might change annually (so if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say maybe after they take out the Spring Voyage medallions this year? assuming there are some). Mine are the "2012" issue ones but DuffyD got them in 2013.

    Duffy The Disney Bear

    Evidently there were coins at the MiraCosta too...adorable!

    If you scroll down you can even see the US Duffy pennies. They wrongly label kilt Duffy (and I believe one more) as Shellie May, though!

    Oh, and DuffyD, if you could please try to keep your head from exploding, that'd be awesome. I have faith in you!

    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Thank you, Eeee-va.
    When I went to WDW in Dec 2012, I went with a roll of shiny pennies and lots of quarters.
    I got a few Duffy pennies. I traipsed around Epcot, to no avail. Not only did I not know that there was a MAP showing where everything was , but I ran into troubles.
    China Duffy penny was in the trader shop, NOT China! The store in France was undergoing remodeling, so the penny machine was removed. The machine in Germany was broken.
    It was the last day, super humid, few snack credits remained, a complaining child, a complaining husband...and a wild goose chase!

    In the end, I came out of it with Mexico, USA, Canada, UK, China, and plain sailor Duffy.

    I am stunned to see a Shellie May penny at WDW AK. Why would it be there? I saw no Duffy pennies there. And believe me when I say I looked at every penny machine that I saw.

    And Eeee-va, just for you, I'll share that I got M-O, WALL-E, and EVE. They are interesting because they have plain, flat edges, no dotted oval around the image.

    Oh no! I'm sorry about your coin woes. It was tricky to get them in DL too, even when the majority of the machines were in our Penny Arcade. (Which is mostly candy now. ) Anyway, I think you might be able to buy them on eBay.

    How neat about the WALL-E coins! Were they pennies? They had those 3 at DL (I think--I could be misremembering about MO but I think he was there). But they were nickels, to look kind of future-y. Most of the old presses--including those--I believe were repurposed for DCA's new collection of pressed coins.

    I could never! They are souvenirs. Buying them from eBay would not be allowable. I'm even skeptical of presents of smashed pennies. They are technically souvenirs of someone else.

    Yes, pennies. Actually, it is a series of 7. WALL-E is 2/7; EVE 3/7 and M-O 7/7.
    I'm more interested in getting pennies I like than completing collections. I do, however, want all 7 Dwarfs.

    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Wow; you are SERIOUS about your pennies, Ilovegreataur! I'm also not a collection person (I just get ones I like), but I'm not nearly as picky about the source. For a while I was considering collecting just female characters that weren't wearing clothes. Since Mittens (from Bolt) and EVE are my two favorite coins, that sounded reasonable. LOL

    (I had no idea there was a series of 7 WALL-E coins! I KNOW it was just 3 on the west coast. Actually, now that I think about it, I think it was two WALL-Es and an EVE in Disneyland.)

    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Wow, I just had a chance to browse thru the official site update

    DuffyD - I so know what you mean, there sure is a lot to process. Think I'm on cuteness overload

    I still love best tho the camera/bag accessories for the bears, the small (real) camera bag and the small duffel bag. Wonder if the duffel bag at 17x13.5x10cm is small enough for the 17inch duffy to carry? I think duffy would look so cute carrying mini duffy. Currently my hubby has our mini duffy sitting in a duffy tea cup

    I'm also tempted by the tissue box holder altho it looks rather delicate. The big surprise tho was the customizable luggage tag/keyrings. Sooo cute!

    Overall tho, does it seem like there are less items than last year? I can't rem how many there were but there seemed a lot.

    SV13 Compact Camera Trunk ¥2200 (
    Interior)
    (Height: 9.5cm x Width: 14cm x Depth: 6.5 cm)
    Compares well, from the side, with the Sticker Set below
    which was designed to be bear-scale (10.5x15.5).
    It's quite a bit deeper, though (6.5cm vs 2cm) -
    a fact I think will make it look more like a trunk,
    less like a briefcase.
    This is really the right-fit accessory.





    SV13 Sticker Set ¥1000
    (Height: 10.5cm x Width: 15.5cm x Depth: 2cm)
    Suggested as the right size to accessorize with the plush,
    but the detail is not up to the level of OLC costumes and
    it looks a bit thin. I think the Compact Camera Case above
    is going to provide a FAR more authentic, satisfying experience.
    I'm honestly a bit surprised by this suggestion (it looks so plastic!)
    ...since they also designed the gorgeous, hyper-detailed Case.




    SV13 Reflex Camera Bag ¥3000
    (Height: 22cm x Width: 22cm x Depth: 12.5cm)




    SV13 Camera Strap ¥2200
    (Length: 86cm x Width: 3cm)
    (Pouch - Diameter: 9cm x Thickness: 2cm)
    *This Camera Bag+Strap set is just about
    the most wonderfully designed thing ever!





    SV13 Duffel Pouch ¥1900
    (Height: 17cm x Width: 13.5cm x Depth: 10cm)



    SV13 Ceramic Mug ¥1600
    (Diameter: 7.5cm x Height (with cap): 14cm)
    (I kinda wish it was solid blue and the decals appeared
    when we fill it with hot drinks, but then it would be
    much more expensive, I guess...)




    SV13 Strap Set ¥2000
    *Why do I like this one SO much better than last year's?




    SV13 Ballpoint Pen Set ¥1400




    SV13 Assorted Cookies ¥1200
    Butter (with logo)
    Chocolate
    Tea
    Butter (small)
    Raspberry
    Butter & Strawberry
    Tea & Butter
    Green Apple

    *I think these will be the first things to sell out, or the mugs.

    SV13 Magnet ¥600*

    *I was kinda hoping for a Shellie/Minnie version, too...
    and I won't be surprised if there is one yet!

    SV13 Popcorn Trunk ¥2500





    SV13 Dessert Cup ¥800





    SV13 Meal Tray ¥1500





    SV13 Metal Lunchbox ¥1500





    SV13 Dessert Mug ¥700





    SV13 Dessert Plate ¥700





    SV13 Bottle Capper ¥800 (each)
    *Note: I think the small bears are likely easy to remove
    and could be swapped, in case you'd prefer that.
    I promise nothing, but I removed the figures from the
    straws last year with very little challenge.^^

    "MY SPRING VOYAGE"

    SV13 My Spring Voyage ¥1300


    "My Spring Voyage" is the luggage decal scavenger hunt at the heart of this year's event. Not only do we FINALLY get Duffy Passports - can't wait to see the interior of these... Not only do we get all the travel sticker goodness I was hoping for last year... It's also a park-hunting interactive experience and I am so thrilled about what it is that I don't mind having to wait a year. Also, check out that price. Unbelievably cheap. Compare that with the MUCH smaller Sticker Set (¥1000) and one can only conclude that OLC's pricing is highly intentional - so that everybody will do it.

    And imagine! It still says "Who's Duffy?" on the site this year... Imagine that you don't know who Duffy is, you've never seen his merchandise all over the park before. You wanna know what the heck this is all about before you start getting angry at this huge push that obviously has no soul... And then you see one of three shows he's featured in. You discover a website with a narrative journey that is updated daily, showcasing not only this new bear character, but the majesty of Tokyo DisneySEA. You could do all that last year, when OLC took the plunge to make Duffy more "mainstream," in order to make money off of him, I'm sure, but I'm equally confident they also wanted to celebrate their - and his - success. They want him to be renowned, and they've earned it. And now this year, they offer not only shows and incredible merchandise, but an interactive trek in which you really do literally HAVE to "travel along with Duffy" to participate. And they even give you a prize, for free. I mean, is there even any kind of comparison to "kind of" make with the way "that other company" (which I also love, but it's kind of an abusive relationship and I'm the victim^^) does things? Spring Voyage is the same thing, folks, as the initial US rollout, or this new Disney Store rollout - it has roughly the same intention of making the public aware of Duffy. But while the US actions look like, "Here! Buy this! NOW!" the Oriental Land Company seems to be saying, "Look how fluffing AWESOME and FUN he is! Look at all the money and energy we're spending to make him so fluffing AWESOME and FUN!! You can come try it if you want to, and we both know you do! We're so sure you'll LOVE him that we take HUGE, shark-jumping risks and double Duff dare you not to throw money at us and BEG for MORE!"

    Yeah, I'm LOVING Spring Voyage this year. And just one more note, before we get into this sticker set and park experience: It is significant that Spring Voyage is happening now. First begun at the close of TDS's 10th Anniversary milestone, heralding in the entire Resort's 30th Anniversary celebration...and likely also bookmarking the close of the 30th events in 2014. That's right. Spring Voyage bridges these HUGE celebrations for the entire Resort. It's a very big deal, and it sends a clear message about the Oriental Land Company's respect for and love of Duffy.

    And even still, NO rollout to Disney Stores, none of the 17" plush and costumes even available in Bon Voyage. NOTHING in Disneyland. Integrity.

    So, "My Spring Voyage."

    You get:

    • Vinyl Trunk Case
    • Passport (fold-out Map)
    • LUGGAGE DECAL TRAVEL STICKERS!!!



    STEP 1:
    Purchase "My Spring Voyage" at Galleria Disney or McDuck's Department Store.

    STEP 2:
    Use your Passport (Map) to go around the Ports of Tokyo DisneySEA and find the 7 park displays with Mickey's trunk.

    STEP 3:
    Add your Travel Sticker to your Trunk Case to match the sticker you see on Mickey's trunk in the displays.

    GOAL:
    After finding and placing all 7 Travel Stickers, you should have 3 large area stickers remaining on your sticker sheet. Redeem your completed, sticker-covered Trunk Case and show the correct unused 3 stickers to receive the Mickey Luggage Tag at Il Postino (Mediterranean Harbor), Tower of Terror Memorabilia (American Waterfront), or Agrabah Marketplace (Arabian Coast).

    The Mickey Luggage Tag is a bit of a letdown. Besides being Mickey-centric, that stark white lettering on basic black isn't much more charming than it was last year. Fortunately, the name card on the back is reversible; one side with the Mickey design shown on the website, the other side with a Duffy design.

    We got Duffy- and Shellie-shaped (and from the looks of it, higher quality) luggage tags on the Duffel Bags last year, so there's that. And these Travel Stickers are incredible, timeless designs that I personally have been waiting a year for! The voyage itself, going around TDS to find the 7 trunks and place the stickers on the Trunk Case is definitely worth undertaking and will be fun, for sure.

    BUT...an inspired, worthy, Duffy-centric goal makes for a more compelling, satisfying quest, so...

    Spoiler
    WishListers whose Spring Voyage Wish Lists (not including Happiness Year items) are valued at ¥30,000 or more AND include the SV13 "My Spring Voyage" set will ALSO get a bonus Duffy-inspired Travel Sticker designed by me! Duffy Post original goods that actually feel like part of the TDS event - and you get a souvenir from YOUR experience no one else will have, even in Tokyo! You get to "complete the quest" and have "YOUR Spring Voyage," too!^^ This is something I've always wanted to do, and I'm very excited about it! It's gonna be a little expensive, but I'm motivated to do it right! Still, it's the first time I've done anything like this, so wish me lots of LUCK!







    HOTEL ITEMS


    The only version I can buy separately from a meal is the pink one, which is
    SV13 MiraCosta Glass (Pink) ¥1800






    SV13 Souvenir Medal Set ¥800
    (¥600+¥200 because I think lots of WLs want them and they're very time-consuming and spread out)

    *includes these two, plus these from around the park:
    Duffy
    Shellie
    Duffy/Shellie
    Duffy/Mickey




    Hooray! I think I'm done! I think I'm actually finished for a while! Let me know if I've made any mistakes or missed anything, okay?^^

    I am in overload, between the TDR 30th site being launched and SPring Voyage I am spinning.

    They won't answer that; I asked. My guess is "yes," but I really won't know for sure until I see it. I strongly suspect it looks right, though. Just like I strongly suspect that the Compact Camera Trunk will be MUCH more satisfying in displays and photos with the plush than that Sticker Set. You'll even be able to "pack" clothes in it and stuff, and it will look right. That is not possible with the Sticker Set. I urge anyone with this plan to think carefully. The Camera Trunk is twice as much, but 100 times more convincing and useful for this purpose. I really think they should have marketed the Camera Trunk as the dual-purpose item. It looks, to me, like it was designed with that use in mind. I really cannot understand at all why they are pushing the Sticker Set in this way, though, so I make no promises. However, I strongly suspect that I'm right and anyone who trusts me will not regret it!^^

    These are INCREDIBLE!!! With the accurate Signal Flags!!! I am in LOVE! And...

    They'll look so PERFECT accessorizing the Duffels from last year, or this year's Camera Bag.

    Hm... Spring Voyage 2012...

    I doubt the Travel Pals are coming back, so that's two down...

    There is a SV13 Souvenir Medal Collection Book and it will cost ¥1300, like last year.

    There's probly no Scope. I guess that wasn't really a big seller...

    The Duffel Bag is retired, but that's kind of replaced by the Reflex Camera Bag...

    There's no iPhone Case pictured here, but it wasn't on the site last year, either. There are TWO SV13 iPhone 5 Cases for ¥2400 each. Both are actually shaped like the bears, similar to the Milk Tea Cookie tin. I guess they're silicone.

    There will also be a Charm Watch for ¥3800. These sold out in about two days last year.

    There doesn't appear to be an Earring Set or Watch, though they also were not on the site last year...

    The SV13 Transit Steamer Tomica will be available and costs ¥1000.


    There's a SV13 Drawstring Bag for ¥600.


    Also, SV13 6-color Ballpoint Pen (with figural Duffy on top!) for ¥800.

    Although probably no Roomwear, Mirror or Lunch Bag... There WILL be Marshmallows for ¥500. I don't know the flavors, sorry.

    There could be a SV13 Placemat for ¥450...but the CM couldn't see one.

    Probably no Pasta Snack, but we'll definitely have a SV13 Postcard for ¥200 and a SV13 Basic Sticker Set for ¥450. And there will surely be a SV13 Giant Shopping Bag for ¥850. Like last year, it's based on Mickey's/Duffy's trunk, but with the updated stickers and key visual.

    I was right about almost EVERYTHING!


    But this year we get Cameras and Travel Sets for the bears, likely a very detailed Camera Trunk that does double duty as a bear trunk, a Duffel Pouch that probably works the same way, a Rain/Shine Umbrella and a sun Hat, a Reflex Camera Case, Tissue Cover, park-replica Cape Cod planters, Room Fragrance, a really solid thermal mug, Figure Straws with bear-head caps (they were Mickey icons last year!), a Metal Lunchbox, a Drink Cup with BOTH bears and NO Mouses...and my favorite - a highly detailed resin Figurine which has both bears together - and NO Mouses! Plus, there's the Trivet, which is a Duffy first. And at least one Magnet although I strongly suspect there's a SV13 Magnet Shellie/Minnie for ¥600...but I was wrong about this.

    I love Mickey and Minnie, don't get me wrong. But it insults both the Mouses and the bears to shoehorn them in. Spring Voyage is really the bears' thing, and it looks like the OLC really LISTENED TO FANS and made changes to keep that focus. Last year a lot of Mouse appearances felt "forced," and it did more harm than good. This year, they've really struck the right balance, I think.

    Plus, the Luggage Decals are front and center, as I SO wanted last year. In many ways, this is the answer to a lot of bucket list items they didn't put out last year...like adult sizes of the T-shirts! And I think it's actually MORE items, not even counting the Happiness Year stuff. This is a big, BIG release. And it is in every way the Spring Voyage that I wanted last year, which I felt was compromised by sharing the spotlight heavily with the Mouses. This year, they really just fluffing went for it!

    Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    Wow! My list got a whole lot bigger! Really cute stuff, and some real surprises. I think that although there are some things missing from last year, they more than made up for it with the new additions. We get things we've never had before.
