Where's My Suitcase ???? Magic Kingdom continues with some Drama

So I finally uploaded some pix and can start this over due Trip Report
For those who don't know me and my Roamings !!!



I am Rosie , Disney Fanatic, Escort for an Agency that arranges wonderful vacations for folks with Developmental Disabilities !! Pictured above is me on a previous People & Places vacation to Disney !!



My Co Escort friend and Boss is Carol pictured here with a couple of our vacationers !!!

On October 17th we arrived at Buffallo airport to meet our 4 vacationers flying with us to Orlando where we would meet the other 4 flying in from Albany!!
As always we parked the car at Budget and caught the shuttle to the airport , where 2 of the guys were already waiting !! Carol and I have the system down pat and soon had collected meds , money and ID's from the 2 awaiting . Next the other 2 arrived , both of these we knew , shortly after 6 a.m we were in line to check our bags . We called each up to put their suitcases on the scale and got all our paperwork .As we were about to leave ,Chuckie started asking "Where;s my Suitcase " He could not understand why they took it
We headed to Security and again explained to all that they had to take off their shoes empty their pockets , take off belts etc !! This is a hard concept for them to understand and then if the security folks are in a good mood they send them thru the quick detector !! Getting them thru the Body scan can be both amusing and a nightmare
Chuckie was still asking "Where's my suitcase "
Once thru that we hurried off to our gate and got our "BLUE" cards to preboard , and still hearing "Where's my suitcase " Boarding went as smoothly as possible , we were flying AirTran and had preassigned seats , which can be hard as they don't understand which seat to sit in and why their larger carry ons have to go in the overhead bins But we got everyone seated without causing any major delays to the other travellers Flight left on time and Chuckie still asking " Where's my Suitcase " Flight landed early and we had plenty of time to meet the Albany flight . Then we finally were able to go find Chuckie's suitcase !!!
With afew delays in getting our ME boarding passes we were off to catch the Magical Express

Check in went smoothly and 4 of our 5 rooms were ready !!

Our vacation had began !!! Hope you will tag along for the ride !!

I'm here, Rosie! Hope you are feeling much better today.

Great pics to begin...except someone got caught in their PJ's for the room shot. Which is exactly why I will be the one with camera if we ever make it Disney together!

Rosie!!

So glad to see you doing a TR, it sounds like it was a fairly uneventful start to the trip.

I love that one of your travelers kept asking where his suitcase was, bless his heart. I bet he was more than happy to have that back once y'all landed!

So having lunch at Pop Foodcourt, I was disappointed my favorite Chicken Alfredo had been healthyfied I really wish Disney would stop trying to be my conscience !!!, we checked out our rooms at Pop and by this time the 5th was ready. I quickly organized the meds an we headed out to DHS . Pat had tried to change our ressie at SciFi to earlier as we wanted to see Fantasmic , but we had a Back up plan of using a CS instead and using the TS at Napoli's instead of paying OOP!!
We stopped at Guest Services to get the DAS cards , which were simple to get and didn't take long at all . However seeing as it is so new the CM steered us wrong , by putting our pix on the 2 cards we got . You will see how we had a potential problem later .
We then figured we would try some short line attractions an first up was GMR . The wait wasn't horrendous and the guys really LOVED it !!
Then we headed this way



Anyone Guess where we were headed .Again the wait wasn't bad and all enjoyed this show too !!Note I didn't name it so you can all guess and NO the answer isn't 3 Judy's !!!

We had spotted our CS choice on our way over to ????? and all were able to find something they liked . I had only eaten here once before and had not been impressed but a meu change and a good review from Tim cinched the deal and we headed to ABC commissary!!


I am gonna be in trouble for this pix as now Carol is an official Disser

It was time to head to Fantasmic and we were very peterbed to hear that there was standing room onlyA huge crowd was waiting near the arena and my heart sunk !!! But eventually they let aload of us in and I asked for handicapped seating and we got it . A little tight squeeze but we had our seats !!The guys really got a kick out of the audience waves and all joined in !! Finally after some delays we saw



The show was as great as ver and the guys LOVED it !!Getting out is a little hairy , Pat's help was a huge blessing and we lost no one
Everyone was pretty beat and so we said goodbye to Disney for today and headed back to POP!! The buses weren't tooooo bad I have definitely had much longer waits , and so our first day came to an end

Sounds like a fun first afternoon, Rosie.

The Great Movie Ride and Muppets...can't be beat for an easy first afternoon.

Not a fan of the ABC place for lunch, but glad you all found something you liked.

And happy you were able to get seats for Fantasmic and enjoyed the show.
