The Dynamic Duo Do it again !!!Escorts Extordinaire and a Comedienne 1/18

Finally I am starting theis Trip Report !! I know ya'll have been waiting with baited breathe !!
For those of you new to my TR's I will again intriduce US >>

Here we are in front of the Castle in a previous trip!!
Carol inreal life is my Boss, we both work in the Developmentally Disabled field and a couple of years ago signed up together to become Volunteer escorts for an Agency that does vacations for the Disabled !! We have quite a few trips under our belt and while some are harder going than others we haven't thrown in the towel yet !!
This will be our 3rd Free Disney Trip
I thought I had uploaded my pix but it seems there was a snafu!!!!
So I will start with telling you about departure day !!

Carol was picking me up at4:30 a.m to get top Budget to park the car and then over to Buffalo Airport !! We did our usuial "Got everything check" and I showed her my ID and then we were OFF !!! We arrived in good time at the airport where Joie from P&P was waiting as she had already seen an earlier group off !!
I checked in the meds of all the Travellers and Carol was collecting ID's WHEN Mine is not in the little Black purse I knew I had put it in !! We searched me and all my bags and NO ID !! All I could think was it felll out in the car which was at Budget so a panicked call to Budget who thank God found it I thinkm it had fallen outside when I arrived there and as it was dark I didn't notice So panic over other than me looking like a complete fool in front of Joie !!

Stay tuned for pix and more when I get them uploaded !!

A little more on the antics Carol forces me to do





She litereally forced me to do this

Any who back to our flight !! We were able to get pre boarding as I always explain that to not give us it could delay the flight as our guys do not know which seat they belong in and even less idea where to store their carryons , and whilst the ar causing mass confusion, the lien gets long and hostile !! Works every time !!! So all settled in, Carol starts her usual grimacing about take off Soon as we reach cruising altitude I snapp a couple of pix which this time came out well




Very soon our gourmet meal was served



Along for the flight was

Having finally found somewhat how to use the new PB , which I do NOT like !!!
hopefully I can get in another update

The flight went well and for a change we had all 8 travellers with us so no racing around the airport to retrieve any one . Also we had the wonderful ME !! We so LOVE Disney



Her is Carol giving them THE RULES and explaining MARV!! ( As if there is an explanation for him)



Our first ride on the Disney buses !! Our first destination was EPCOT



We headed to the World and first stop was Mexico

We looked around the store and of course in honor of Mark had to try on a few hats



Darn the new PB it didn't rotate it , so ya'll can just look sideways

Now lets see if I am sideways



Yup I am

So I will leave off here while I fight PB some more

Carol is going over the rules with MARV in her hand???

THAT is hilarious, I bet they had no idea what to make of that, but by the end of the trip they were all eager to "follow MARV"

Great pictures while in flight, Rosie. And I see your sidekick, Marv the spoon, was along for the trip again. What a wonderful gourmet meal while in fligh.

Woo hoo for arriving and going to Epcot and doing World Showcase first. And Mark says THANK YOU VERY MUCH for honoring him and you girls did great with your hat photos.

Tell Mark he is welcome and an inspiration !!It is soo funny how as soon as I put on a hat and hand the camera to Carol they come flocking to do the same thing!!!

Now I have a funny tale soo put down that coffe cup

Just got off the phone with Cathleen and she was talking about her favorite ever P&P traveller ! Timothy , when they first read his profile and it said he was legally blind they asked Patti if he had any vision, she said I think he sees shaapes but call and ask , which they did NOPE he had NO eyes But Cathleen absolutely adored him . He calls her every Monday at 5p and calls her JEFFREY!!! Last Monday he reminded her that it was Dan's birthday Nov 13th and he was born in 1981 yup they have those sorta memories
So he continued to tell her she should take him out to a NICE restaurant , Cathleen asked where he suggested and here is his reply
A Nice restaurant go INSIDE at Burger King !!
I am still over it !!!

Once we had looked around tried on hats we were escorted by a very sweet CM to the Boat



She was so nice to all theguys

We convinced Roy that it was not a scarey ride ( a theme that continued )



Boat ride was a HIT , Roy said it was OK!!!

We then headed to Norway and some of them turned into Vikings





Carol handed me this hat so it is all her fault!!!


Next up was China !! Can any one tell me what this is , It looks like a Bell for something , but too big for a dinner bell

Okay, so did Roy ride Maelstrom? I know that Grand Fiesta ride is scary, but that Maelstrom ride scares the bejeebers out of me.........

Or did Roy find that Maelstrom was also "okay?"

Oh yes, some more of that "bad" Carol influence and yet another twisted arm......

I think that may be one of your best hat pics Rosie!!!
