We live near Mt. Dora (40 miles north) and saw one driving along our lake one day- double take and triple take.

On a related note, DS and I use the Cruiseline buses to play our version of the "vw punch buggy" game. Provides a lot of entertainment when we go to Disneyworld, but my arm got pretty sore on embarkation/debarkation days on our last cruise

That's great. I never would of thought of that. At least I'm not the only that loves those buses.

On our recent trip we noticed the DCL buses being used frequently to transport conventioneers staying at POR....

I'll be down again in March, and will definitely be taking pictures of where the porthole buses show up. My parents already think I'm weird enough as it is.

well not exactly a strange place, it was actually about where you would expect to see them. I was on my way home from Miami to Maryland on I95 several weeks ago and as we came up on one of the Port Canaveral exits , sure enough there goes the unmistakable DCL bus on the overpass . That was kind of rough, still had 12 hours of driving in front of us and no trip on the books..

That's rough. This is why we always book/plan our next vacation before we leave the current one. It makes going back to reality a bit better.

If you go to the runDisney page, you'll see one of 'em won and got a tiara! It is SO fun to watch!!! You can volunteer to be a "cheerleader" for the event.

NOT!
Omg. If you have any video of that you should send it to America funniest.
I feel so bad for the kids. I know I would be going nuts just like them. And crying when I learned the truth.
