    Exhibit A: Your Letter Confirming Your Reservation At The Nuthouse

    Dear Sir/Madam:

    This letter confirms your willingness to enter the strange, yet enticing world of the ramblings of the amateur writer known in the Disney community as BigTex71. Please sign the guest log (by replying in this thread) and let it be known that you waive all your rights to a normal trip report. By acknowledging your willingness to continue down this dangerous path, I cannot be held responsible for any sudden outbursts of laughter or rashes on your scalp due to the head-scratching some of my keyboard-induced quirkiness may induce.

    Consider yourself warned.

    Possibly Sincerely,
    BigTex71

    For those of you who have not read my pre-trip report, WHY THE HECK NOT?! Am I really going to have to set the stage again? Well, if you are as lazy as I am and don’t like clicking on links to other reports just to read this one, you are in luck! I am going to include a little background information about me and my family. This will be a quick - and maybe even informative – way to get to know the characters you will be reading about (if you continue past this part of this ‘unique’ trip report.)

    Me, Myself, and I: I am an avid Disneyholic and got ‘bitten’ by the Disney bug a few years ago. I live for my family and for visits to Disney destinations. Between trips I like to watch baseball (I have been an avid Texas Rangers fan since I was born), play Rock Band/Guitar Hero games with my son, watch movies, play golf (even though I haven’t played in years – but hopefully that will change this spring), and hang out with my family. I recently became a home-based travel agent specializing in Disney vacations in addition to my regular gig as an IT Server Administrator for a cutting-edge medical group. I may have been told once or twice that I have a unique sense of humor – I’ll leave that up to you, though.

    DW: She has to put up with my shenanigans on a daily basis, so feel sorry for her. She is starting to move over to the light of being a self-proclaimed Disneyholic, too. She works full-time and still finds time to play with the kids, clean house, and help our son with his homework. I am a lucky guy. (Yes, she will probably read this.)

    DS: A 10 year old boy who likes Disney, video games, Harry Potter stuff, video games, eating, video games, hanging out with the family, video games… well, you get the picture.

    DD: She turned 4 a few days before we surprised the kids with this trip to The World. So it was a birthday celebration trip in addition to the family vacation. She is a Disney Princess (at least in her mind), loves to play dress-up and she likes to play Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique makeover at home (as well as watch other BBB videos on You Tube daily.) She may be slightly spoiled – but in a good way. :love:

    DM: My mother since birth. She is a kind and generous woman who is sweeter than the day is long. She likes to hang out with family and have a good time, though her 'earth experience' causes her to pass on some of the more exciting rides at Disney.

    If you want more background about us or the build-up for this trip, please feel free to read my Pre Trip Report here.

    Up next, how we surprised the kids with the trip…
