He looks like he would be so much fun!

Woo-Hoo!!!


Wishing the most magical trip to you and to all the other lucky buggers who will be visiting the World and the BC/YC/BCV in the next week.

Have a great time!

My boys were looking over my shoulder while I was catching up on the thread, and when they saw the "Flat Kids," they were enthralled!!! And then they started talking about what they will do with the Flat Kids during our trip...because of course they assumed this is just another fun amenity offered by Disney. I had to break the news that Flat Ben, Flat Katie and Flat Madalyn do not live at the Yacht and Beach Club. When we have some more time, I'm sure they will greatly enjoy following Flat Ben's adventures on the other thread.

Thank you for this tip! We have already signed up both boys for the Sandcastle Club while DH and I enjoy the Rose & Crown and Candlelight Processional. To me, it is money well spent, but a coupon is always appreciated!

Welcome back, Teena!! I really enjoyed the pictures...thank you for sharing!! Bob looks like he is a great sport. I doubt my DH would be so accommodating about having his picture taken multiple times.

I have begun planning out my park strategies!! So excited--and also so thankful my sister-in-law is a Disney expert travel agent with lots of great info. Even the boys are getting into it, trying to help me decide which ride to do first at each park.

When I logged onto the Disney site today to look something up, it said only 60 days to go!!! Just two months!!

Hope all you folks going to F&W have a GREAT trip!! Can't wait to hear all about it!!

We love all the planning, too. It is half the fun. Our best park strategy is to run right over to Buzz Lightyear and do that ride first if we arrive at MK early. You can ride it several times before a line forms. After that, there are long lines.

I am so glad you and your kids were amused by the Flat Kids. I can't speak for Flat Katie and Flat Madalyn, but if your kids would really like to hang out with Flat Ben during your trip, that can be arranged...

Guess who is going to Disneyland for a day? Me, Jeanne and Princess Lily. We're going to the beach and Disneyland over a 3 day weekend Jeanne has off from school while I'm there in late October. Three of Jeanne's other friends are going too. Should be fun!!

I am so excited for you! My dad, brother and I spent one day in DL back in 1978. I bet it has changed a little bit since then!

pixarmom is a DL vet. Maybe she will have some tips for you this week.

That would be wonderful! We would love to "show" him around!! I told DS#1 this morning that we might get to take Flat Ben with us, and he got a huge smile on his face. "How does he feel about roller coasters?" he asked.

Thank you!! What a fun idea!! I really think both my boys will enjoy this!

Hi Teena!! We really enjoyed our time at DL and DCA! Lily will love so many of the attractions there. If you venture over to DCA you have to check out Carsland. They really did it right!

Sounds like you had a great cruise...thanks for letting Dee post all the pictures. I would love to do a Disney cruise some day. At the end of the month hubby and I are taking a short cruise to Bermuda (out of NY) with 4 other couples.

Awesome! Can you email me at beachclubdee@yahoo.com so we can make arrangements. I can either mail FB to your home, or send one to the BC/YC for you to pick up when you check in.

Real Ben loves Big Thunder and Space Mountain, is not too keen on Everest and has not been on RockNRoller Coaster, but Flat Ben is fearless. No matter how scary something is, his expression never changes!

I added a few more pictures to the FB thread this morning.

In 28 sleeps we'll be waking up at Yacht Club. Too exciting

We're traveling from a very damp and chilly Cumbria in the UK. Can anyone clue me up as to what to expect from the weather there in early November? Will the kids be able to enjoy SAB? Is sitting poolside still a pleasure at this time of year?
TIA
