Hi, I'm following along with your report. I loved your cruise report (I'm taking a Wonder cruise in January) and I've been lurking on your pre-trip report for this trip to get ideas for a future trip to Disney with my two daughters. I love Christmas decorations so I'm excited to see your photos of this trip. Hopefully I can go see them in person too one day!

Ok, I'm interested. We did our first trip as parents last year (and second this year) so I'm interested in seeing how your experience went. We've never attempted anything near the scale of flying cross country to visit WDW with a 2 month old though!

For those of you that don't know, my mom ABSOLUTELY HATES flying. So she needs all the help she can get, and that help happens to be in the form of a little alcohol
Ok, that is funny... Maybe not to your mom though.

Whatever it takes to relax the nerves and get on the plane!

Welcome home! I"m all subbed and ready to see what's next for you! I usually drink before I fly, too, but not because I'm nervous, it's just how I like to start my vacation I hope your mom did ok.

The plane ride...dun dun dun!

I FINALLY uploaded all my pics AND I edited all my Photopass Pictures and am awaiting the email to download them (love that I don't have to have a physical disc anymore!) Also, ABSOLUTELY NO PEEKING on my Facebook for those that are friends with me. I needed to post the pictures on there for my family.

Saturday, December 8th, 2012.

WERE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD TODAY!!!

I was excited and super nervous! Nervous for the flight for DS and nervous for my mom. But I needed to snap out of that and hurry up to get everyone downstairs for our shuttle pickup. The first thing I did was make coffee for my mom so she could pour her brandy into it. She poured at least two shots in the small coffee cup and drank it down. DH didnt want her to feel left out ()so he poured some in his coffee too . We made it downstairs at 5:25am and only waited about a minute or two before we started putting our suitcases in the shuttle. The drive took only about 6 minutes. It was wonderful to be picked up from our hotel and driven directly to the airport. I had checked in the day before and paid for any bags online, so check-in was a breeze. After checking in, we were told to take the elevator behind us, because of the stroller and as soon as the elevator opened up, we were at security already! DM still had her Anise in her carry-on and I told her that she had to drink her water quickly because theyll throw it away. Of course, DH isnt the slickest and slyest guy in the world, and he kept saying all loud, Just down the water! Who cares if it stings! But I dont think the security guy even cared. Maybe it happens all the time??

Going through security was the EASIEST and PLEASANT Ive ever been through! Maybe its because we were the only people in that security line, and maybe it was because we had a cute sleeping baby with us, but they were so nice and so excited for us that we were going to Disney World. They also helped bring over all our stuff to a bench so we wouldnt have to keep walking to the conveyor belt to pick up our stuff (even though there was no one behind us still at this point!) They were amazing!

As we were walking to our gate, I noticed that a bar was open! I didnt think bars opened up until 7am, so DH and DM went to grab a drink while I went to our gate to gate check the stroller.

Soon it was time to board! You know when youre boarding the plane and it takes a while for people to find their seats and put their bags up in the overhead bin, and the flight attendant will talk to you for a bit? Well, this was the convo between my mom and the flight attendant:

FA Good Morning!
DM Good morning and when do you begin serving drinks?

All I could was shake my head and giggle. Even with the brandy, the anise, and the screwdriver she had all within a few hours, still wasnt working. The flight attendant was super nice and said she would take care of her as soon as we were at the correct altitude.

Take-off was easy! DS was sleeping, didnt even want to take a bottle since I heard it was good for their ears to be eating during take off and landing, and mom was sitting in the aisle row with her eyes closed, and her arm around DH. Soon we were in the air and mom was able to get her drink, a screwdriver. A different flight attendant served her the drink and said to not worry about paying! I guess the original flight attendant she had spoken to had mentioned something about her being nervous so they comped her her drink! So nice! What a great start to our trip!

DSs first plane trip&sleeping!






DM is in the bathroom in the last pic.

The flight was pretty uneventful. No turbulence, no rocking. But when we got drinks again, mom ordered another screwdriver and DH ordered a cranberry vodka. Both comped by a different flight attendant! What the heck! Maybe I should be nervous too! We watched a little tv, read Skymall (something DH and I do on every flight) and talked.

We soon began making our descent down but took some pictures on the way down











Mickey head?? A little deformed but I was looking for a Mickey head anywhere I could! LOL!

So you had some pixie dust even before getting to WDW! An easy trip to the airport, no lines at security, and a smooth flight. Did your mom calm down once you were leveled off, or not until you landed in FL? That was really nice that they comped all those drinks for you guys

Lots of pre-pixie dust!

She did calm down during the flight and was laughing and overall in a great mood...possibly the drinks?? Maybe! But I didn't care, as long as she wasn't freaking out and tense.
