If you are in the theme parks of Orlando this week, you may come across a group of children on the holiday of a lifetime from the UK, called Dreamflight, this charity gives seriously ill or disabled children a gift of a holiday filled with fun and happiness. The UK charity works through the year fundraising for the yearly trip.
A team of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, and volunteers accompany the children, (without their parents) and care for the children 24 hours a day.
When the plane arrives in Florida, more help is on hand from Dreamflights American team.
What caught my eye, was on their Facebook page Dreamflight have posted pictures of a special police escort, for the convoy of coaches from orlando International Airport to the Hotel!
What a wonderful beginning to the many fantastic experiences that these deserving children are going to have in the next few days.

Go to Animal Kingdom and 'Yes' you can have an Expedition on Everest! Well, on Disney's roller-coaster train ride on the amazing construction of a replica of a Himalayan mountain.
Before the ride you are taken through a waiting area, telling the story of an expedition with themed artifacts of a journey to a fictional Nepalese village of Serka Zong. Where the atmosphere is created to make guests imagine they are explorers, looking for signs of the mythical 'Yeti'.
The roller coaster is thrilling and fun, with height and drop elements adding to the excitement. When it's over you feel you want to go straight back on, and do it again!
