EVERYONE'S A COUSIN ON THIS TRIP! July 31st, 2018 - August 7, 2018 Hey there, friends! I'm Jeff and glad you're coming along for the journey! From this point on, since you're kinda going on this trip with us... ...consider yourself a cousin! And yes, you read that title right; there's going to be 8 of us going on this trip. All of us will be in our 20s for this trip, except for my cousin Albert who will be 17 at the time of our trip. Most of us are definitely going to be either a cousin or sibling to one another; but there's also a newly made spouse in the mix, as well as a boyfriend, tagging along! If we aren't already blood-related, we've all become family over the years. That's why everyone going is going to be given the awesome title of "cousin"! With that many characters involved, there's going to be tons of opportunities to make memories that will last a lifetime. Here's a pic of seven of the eight of us (Don't worry, the eighth person (Daniel) is about 1,300 miles to the right,just out of frame.), about three years ago at a wedding. Top Row: Abbey, Kelly, Katherine - Bottom Row: Randy, Jeff (Me), Albert, Joseph I hope you're ready for some adventures in planning. Once this trip starts, it will have been at least a year's worth of dreaming that has lead up to that moment! Right now we're in the middle of all the planning; tough decisions have been made, the roster of cousins tagging along has gone through what seems like dozens of iterations, and there's plenty of things we're excited about. One fact about us is that we're all from California. The majority of us are within an hour of Disneyland, a few of us are from Northern California closer to Sacramento. For some, the Disneyland Resort is the only Disney resort we've ever known. I personally have been to Walt Disney World two times. For now, below will be a space where we answer all of the W's that you would hope to find in a DIS Pre-Trip Report. Like every good story, it takes time to reveal the details. Some of these details have been left out to have you coming back for more, and others are still being worked out. In any case, stay tuned as we hope to have all the details added as time progresses.
