Ben is 11 years old and he starts 6th grade tomorrow.
Ben really loves Disney World!
He has been fortunate that he has been able to visit Disney World 4/5 times. A quick trip in 2004, which he barely remembers. A trip in 2008 (during Tropical Storm Faye, All Star Music). Trips with two incredible stays at the Beach Club in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, our family ventured to "the Dark Side" hanging out with Harry Potter at the Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. But even then, we didn't totally ignore the World. We surprised Ben and his brother with an entire day at the Magic Kingdom in the middle of the trip.
So, what about 2012???
My husband and I got away for our first solo trip in March, to Puerto Rico to celebrate our 25th anniversary. In April, the entire family went to Atlantis in the Bahamas for 5 nights. In our school district the 8th Grade class trip is to Disney for the Y.E.S (Youth Education Series) program, and my older son and I had a 4 night trip in June.
Poor Ben desperately wants to return to Disney World. Part of his campaign included this PowerPoint presentation:
Ben's Powerpoint "Top Ten Reasons We Should Go to Disney! This Summer!!!
Well, a trip to Disney World was not in the cards for our family this summer. I have mentioned Ben's desire to return to the World on my trip report and on the Beach Club/Yacht Club FAQ board and a few people have stepped up and have offered to bring "Flat Ben" along on their vacations.
Come on along and follow The Amazing Adventures of Flat Ben and Friends!

Happy Thanksgiving from Flat Ben
LOL! Too funny, I will definitely be following along
I love that Flat Ben has a pin lanyard.
Ben is too cute, but there is something odd about real Ben holding Flat Ben. If he can hold Flat Ben, why couldn't he take Flat Ben to WDW? (Don't tell real Ben that I asked that question.)
Can't wait to see how his travels go and hear about all of his adventures.
How Flat Ben Came to Be
Here is how the idea of Flat Ben developed, on my "Wicked Awesome or Epic Fail" trip report and the Beach & Yacht Club FAQ:
Well there was no question that I was definately following along!! Can't wait to hear about his adventures. So glad they were there just in time for Teena's return. :thumbsup2
The Arrival of Flat Ben

Next Up- Day 2: Morning at MK
I have some FANTASTIC pictures to share with you from earlier today!!!
So glad you are here!
The pin lanyard is cute, but really sketchy. I am not crafty, so it is literally held together by the pin. Once the pin is removed, it is just a ribbon! Unless Penny fixed it when she got it.
Thanks for following along!
OMW!!!!! This is fantastic!! The first few pictures are so great I can't wait to see what adventures await Ben! :woohoo:
I am smiling from Ear to ear! This is SO MUCH FUN!!! Penny, You are doing a great job with the pictures!!!!! Keep it coming gals!
This is going to be fun!
Yea! for Flat Ben. I hope someone remembered to send him with a ziplock bag. After all you can't tour WDW without your plastic poncho.
OMG this is hilarious-I'm loving every minute of Flat Bens adventures so far (though my children think I'm losing my marbles as I am grinning and laughing at this):rotfl2:
Somehow Flat Ben is so much more life-like than I thought he'd be! Love it, keep up the good work:thumbsup2
Glad you are enjoying it!
I'm so happy to help put a smile on your face! Penny and her DH are doing an EXCELLENT job!
Great suggestion about the poncho! Although if Flat Ben takes after the rest of the family, it might not come in handy. You will see by the end of my class trip TR.
Glad we can continue to add some craziness to your life!
Penny and her DH are sure showing FB a great time.
