Is this a quiet woohooty?

Kids, Disney, Action! Extreme Trip (Report). Three-Peat and Done 7/11
I start this trip report with several things in mind, which I feel compelled to share with you. I must write this report for myself and my children. First. Foremost. Consequently, I make no promises that it will hold any interest for any of you. Probably not. I write this with full knowledge that it will not approach the level of exquisite writing that I have sometimes seen here on the TR board, each in their own way: Delswife, Vettechick, ZZUB, MelHappyhaunt, horsegirl, LaLa, kpk89, Jamal and many many others. (And please, if your name is not on that list, it is not because I have not read and loved your TR - you know who you are - it is just that I have a terrible memory. I am quite certain I have left out someone important, like TwinkieMom. It is, truly, inadvertent.)
But I intend to write this report anyway. For me. And Us.
I must tell you that I expect this report to be filled with: tangents, memories, flights of fancy, and disgusting gushing accounts of my children. I will rarely apologize for any of that. Especially the gushing.
And, I must warn you, I am in a profession that generally pays more as the number words you use increases. Especially big words. Like ubiquitous. So, this will probably not be over any time soon. Especially since it won't really start for another 45 days.
With that said. I hope that you will join me in this journey. To that magical place. That place that we love. Main Street USA, the World at your fingertips, Africa, Asia, Hollywood in the 50's, and the lovely, laid-back Florida Keys (sort of).
And, because I am a benevolent dictator, I shall include a linked index here in Post One for all subsequent chapters.
