    I am loving your report! I've read your others but never commented. I have a question for you - on your first day of resort exploring where did you take the picture in the silver "mouse ears"? I love that - I think it was the contemporary but couldn't tell for sure. I'm only about halfway through your report but can't wait to finish!

    P.S. Parker is adorable - just in case you didn't know that!

    :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2: You go man!!! I had to tell my DH about that one because I knew that he would appreciate it! He is not one to hold back. He has held a spot many a time for the parade and had to speak up several times for people to back off. Sorry about the leg thing. I'm glad you didn't get hurt, but I have to say that it was hard for me not to giggle thinking about you falling backward. (I know, I'm a big meany ;) ) I really am glad that you didn't get hurt or that you weren't holding Parker.
    I still can't get over how smiley Parker is!

    we are so looking forward to it especially since the winter is almost over and we want summer weather.



    sometimes you just cant hold it anymore and have to say something. I was very glad i did.


    I can see all of you from the DIS around me cheering me on "go fauntleroy, fo fauntleroy."
    haha
    when you see them in person they are carribean ocean blue for sure.
    i did not get hurt when i feel, just had to wait to get feeling back for a while. i am just glad i was not holding parker still.

    thanks, i am glad i took good notes eachnight so i could remember the dialoge but that situation i still remember it without notes.


    thanks, glad to entertain you.

    we did not seem to have bad crowds, the first few days were a little busy since they hadjust gotten done filming the christmas day parade tellacast, but other than that we had a great time and felt the crowds were low.


    now you will have the courage to tell themto back off
    :goodvibes

    that was a great memory candi was almost crying when he was trying to get to the floats she loved it.


    yep i am getting old and doing sports for 9 years from school to college has not helped the body any.

    i like the balance on main street comment.

    he loves noises and things that are moving he will play with anything that he can hit and make a loud noise.

    thank you very much.
    :thumbsup2
    yeah right you were laughing at me falling it is okay, i laugh at it now too after the fact and glad i did not fall ontoa little kid behind me, but to bad that one of those brazilians was not behind me to fall onto.
    :lmao:

    i am liking your sign, it could be on one of htose flags that the brazilain tour groups walk around with.
    i hate that feeling of things falling asleep...it happens to me all the time, i think i can sit indian style for an hour and be fine.
    :sad2:

    :welcome:
    yep it is on the back side of the contemporary, just walk out the ground floor to the boat dock and you will see it on your left,there is a table to set your acamera on for self timer.

    glad he enjoyed it.
    that is okay to laugh at me, i laugh at myself all the time.

    What cute videos! I especially loved the one of parker mesmorized by Spectro :lmao: I'm glad you stood up to the girls - we had more than a few problems with the tour groups in 2005, but luckily we haven't run into them since. And sorry about your ankles and Candi's eyes, I hope everyone felt good the next day!

    Chapter 26. The Unchapter Chapter.

    Stupid title i know, but i like it for some reason.

    Every have those disney days where you just go ahhhhh, this is nice and relaxing, well the first 2 hours started out that way today.

    We slept in till about 7:00 and hung out in the room playing and watching tv and eating some snacks.

    Parker played with the balloon i got a few nights earlier from our hotel lobby.
    [​IMG]

    Then he watched some disney cartoons.
    [​IMG]

    While hanging in the room, we heard a knock on the door,and this was given to me.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The other side
    [​IMG]

    While in the main building last night, candi had told the manager that we had said hi and talked with each night that we were there for my birthday and asked if they could do something, so they brough the donald photo and the balloons, it was very sweet of my lovely wife.

    Well the relaxing day was still going on and we were headed to DTD to hang out for a little bit for the morning and to try and find some things that we had been looking for during the week. As soon as we stepped off hte bus to DTD it started to sprinkle....relaxing day just went adious out the window.

    We did not find what we were looking for in the shops, and were at the other end of the DTD area by the lego land. And it was about 10:00 and a CM told us that the bus stop for pleasure island was closer so we walked over there in the rain to get on a bus...stupid mistake for the day.


    VERY STUPID MISTAKE FOR THE DAY sorry i had to repeat it again.

    Well the bus stop for our resort did not have a covering so we stood in the one next to it. and just watched for a bus to CSR...well one did not come, the thing that really P. I. double S. E.D me off, was that half of the busses that came into the bus area did not have a destination on them, they were blank and would circle around the lot and leave. Well the little 20 minute thing wasnot happening it was already 40 minutes, and parker was crying and wanted to eat but we did not bring anything for him since we were only going to be there for a little bit...so candi just held him in the shelter why i went out to the buses that did stop for other places and kept getting the same thing from the drivers, one is on its way they come every 20 minutes...i said well that is funny since i have been here for 45 minutes now and no bus has come.

    finally at the 50 mark, one pulled in and we got on. That was rediculous i know that some of those un marked busses were for the CSR and they just circled hte lot and left without stopping.

    So with the relaxation part of hte morning ruined, we went back to the room so candi could nurse parker and let him take his nap.

    I went to the pool bar adn got us some lunch our Chicken ceaser wrap that we loved so much from there, we just shared since they were huge.

    I came back and we ate and played uno while the little man slept, our relaxation time was restored and we were having fun again.

    Coming up next parker wakes up and we go from a party of 3 to a party of 4.

    See the unchapter, it was pretty week, so it did not deserve a title.

    hope you guys still enjoyed it some.

    Bummer about the bus thing. That is one thing about Disneyland being so small in how it is set up. No real transportation issues. But it sounds like all ended well.:goodvibes

    We've waited at those stops before and from what I remember, we waited a long time too! I can't wait to be at POR so we can take the ferry. I LOVE the ferry. It just gives me another option for travel to DTD. So sorry that you had to wait that long. I'm curious to find out about how you gained another body on your trip! :confused3

    i just find this so funny because "sleeping in" for us on vacation is, oh, about 10:00. 7:00 is EARLY. our normal getting up time is between 8:00-9:00. of course, we haven't been blessed with a little one who wakes up with the sun!

    sorry about the bus trouble at DTD. it seems like buses are always a pain there!

    We had bus trouble one night coming back from MK. We waited forever for a POR bus. We finally saw a bus pull up for POFQ and we jumped on it. I didn't even mind the walk over from french quarter after waiting for so long. The surprise was very nice. It is cool that they had a Donald card.:goodvibes

    yes i know, i have noticed that the service for busses seems to be going down some, i think they are taking buses off a little at a time to save money.


    i love the ferry as well, i have ridden it only once, and sadly we did not get to it this time, but next trip for sure...you will just have to wait and find out about the extra addition to the trip.:goodvibes


    we we are used to getting up any time after 6:00 normally so 7 is our sleep in ahhhhh oh so nice..even if we really try, when parker stays with my parents or something, we cant sleep any later than 8 even if we try.

    my dad is up at 5 every day, from getting up at 430 every morning for work, so his sleep in is pushing 530-6:laughing:

    it is fun to go on vacation with him, cause he gets up to make coffee then.
    :surfweb:


    yeah i loved it, i wonder what other ones they have, we got a cinderella prince charming on on our honeymoon.

    they are so cool to get.

    The Unchapter was still a lot of fun to read! Sounds like a relaxing morning, except for the whole bus mess. It must have been so frustrating! That's one thing I love about driving down there, we always ahve our car so we don't have to deal with the buses!

    Nope, they give you a parking pass. We don't stay onsite though. We usually stay for a few weeks at a time and rent a condo offsite. Sometimes we pay to park, and sometimes we park at the "free parking" resorts (like the Grand Floridian and Boardwalk where you don't get a parking pass) and walk over to the parks.

    i see i see, dont think my dad would drive though, he is very possessive of his truck that he uses to pull his camper.

    so we will still prob use the transporation.

    It may be unreliable but I'm sure it's nice not having to deal with driving the whole time!
