Flirting our Way through WDW 1 person at a time(New -2)Final Chapter

Chapter 1. Welcome and start of our 2008 Christmas trip. Day 1 Part 1

There is a chapter listing at the end of this post for the other chapters

Welcome everyone to our 2008 Christmas trip....

This was the first time that we have seen WDW at Christmas time all decorated and celebrating the holidays. I will do a brief intro about this trip for those of you that may be new and have not read the Pre Trip Report, if you would like to catch up to us and see some things that have happened before the trip, please click HERE. Otherwise, continue on and enjoy the brief description.

I planned this trip, because, it was going to suprise trip for the wife to encompass, her birthday anniversary and christmas, but that did not last long, she still got alot of stuff for her birthday for this trip, found out about the trip by reading the boards, which she rarely does, so i thought i was safe in sharing it with you guys before i told her, that was a mistake, next time i wont do that first...still got a weekend get away to downtown chicago for our anniversary, and still getting alot of good stuff for christmas, so it just turned out to be a great christmas trip to WDW on its own.


Now it is time to share some about this trip, it was from December 7th to December 13th staying at Coronado Springs resort. taking over 1400 pictures and 3 hours of video so sit back and enjoy the ride...

The Cast of Characters...
Me your tour guide Aka Fauntleroy,Dan...
My Wife Aka Dreamingofdisney, Candi....
and our little man, AKA Parker, bubby, peanut, smirks....and many more nicknames...

Here is a picture of me and the misses to give you a face to go with the names....and stories...


And here is parker, bubby, peanut, smirks,


Now you may be asking where did that title come from, and if you are not asking it then you are thinking about it right now.

well that little man pictured above, literally flirted with every single person he saw in Disney...i have many stories, about his flirting and making people smile, so stay tuned and you will see how the title came about.

I think it is fair to start the TR with the day before we left, my parents brough over there scale so we could see how much our luggage weighed, and do drop a few things off...we dont have a scale, so we dont obsese over checking our weight every day...candis dad does that and if he gains one pound one day, he will only eat granola bars till he losses that pound.

So here we are the day before we leave, parker was just sitting in front of the tree watching it go around while we got things ready...





That is his disney train that my parents got him when they went to disney this summer.

he loves it and real smoke comes out of the engine while it goes around the tree.

we put him to bed around 7:30 and we finished packing and watched some tv since we were pretty pumped about our trip....

Candi had the alarm set for 3:30 so she could get up and get ready before getting parker ready and feeding him...

I woke up at 4:00 and got parker up at 4:15, he was very tired, but when it was time to nurse, man he perked up in a hurry...

I took some pictures of our pins, so we would not trade for the same ones that we already had...and came out to the living room, to find a very happy little man with a full tummy...i told him that we were leaving for disney world and to give dada a smile and this is what i got....



My parents picked us up at 5:00 to get going to the airport... parker talked with his jibber jabber for the first 20 minutes on the highway and then was out like a light...we got to the airport at 6:00 and said our goodbyes, then waited at the airtran gate to check our luggage...

This was our first encounter of flirting, he was playing with the little girl in line behind us and giving her smiles, or smirks as we like to call it...


she loved his little air jordan shoes...

bags checked and ready to move on it was security time...6:45 we roll through security but not with a little crap from the TSA agent...she did not like me having all of parkers baby food jars...i said i called midway airport and airtran and they both said every time i called that it was okay to carry his food on the plane they are unopened jars, and still have the seal on them...

she tells me well they are not TSA, i have to go get special clearance. and how long is your flight sir, i say 2 hours, she says he needs all this food for 2 hours, and i said well i dont want to check 15 jars of glass and have broken baby food all of my clothes when i get there so i am carring it on...well let me check with my supervisor...she says a few other smart comments and mumbles something to the other TSA agent...and i get hte clearance, and say thank you have a great day...

we get our stuff put all back together and head to our terminal...

we had it much easier on the way home with the TSA guys,

we found our gate, and i went to get some Mcdonalds, our routine preflight breakfast...i have never had the best luck at this counter however, the first year i left our boarding passes on the counter, and luckily someone turned them into our gate i did not know they were missing till they called my name about 30 minutes later to get them...

this year, they couldnot get my order right for anything, i kept tell her the number meals i wanted and she kept giving me chicken biscuits, she said you wanted a number five right, and i say yes, look behind you that is a sausage biscuit, she was giving me attitude like i ordered wrong, but with that behind us we ate our breakfast and with that i will leave you....

this chapter is getting a little long, so i will stop for now...coming up next...

we tour the airport, hit on some flight attendants, and land in florida...

Hi Dan! I left the boards for a while since I was really busy with school, but I'm back now and was so psyched to find your report! I absolutely CAN NOT BELIEVE how big Parker's gotten!!! He's such a cutie... that little smile and those big blue eyes He looks like such a big boy already, sitting all by himself in front of the Christmas tree. How old is he now? I hope you, Candi and Parker all had a great time! I can't wait to read more...

Count me in

Hi, just winding down my TR from beginning of Dec. I'm curious to see how the crowds were when you were there.

What a cutie, they'll all be flirting with him in a few years.
