Great updates! Way to many good shots for individual comments.

This post is so great I'm almost tempted to go to the dark side!

"Flat Hairy Ben" is exactly why DD dubbed him "Flat Harry Ben". She had to snicker every time it was said.

Love how you've put everything together. You make it such a fun read!

I just feel sorry for the guy who had to play the Shaggy character opposite Scooby Doo.

"Hey Mom, I FINALLY got a job!!"

"Great Son, what are you doing with that $100,000 college degree we paid for?"

"I'm portraying a character from a 1970 children's cartoon. Ain't it great Mom?"

Mom passes out....

I'm so glad you are enjoying the pictures.

If you and your family are fans of the Harry Potter franchise, you must get to the Dark Side! I'm a little ashamed to admit that my teenager prefers the more intense rides at US/IoA and trip planning is now a battle between the Mouse and the Hulk!

Universal andmIoA definitely have a few winners- T he Wizarding World is amazing and The Mummy coaster is incredible, but my heart is with Disney.

Speaking of Disney, I think it is about time for Flat Ben to return to the Motherland...

Hollywood Studios, Tuesday October 23




First up: Tower of Terror. Flat Ben was a little shaky at first. Will he brave it? It doesn't look good as FB hides in the vines. But he makes it though the queue and gets buckled in. Then FB decides he would rather be held.













Next up: My, what a big guitar you have!




Time for Toy Story Mania. FB got the high score for the car!






Run, Flat Ben, Run!




Ah, Muppets! That should be safer!








"I'm just a bird in a gilded cage"



Next up: Lunchtime Antics and Character Time

So great! Love these pics.

Totally laughed out loud when I saw the TOT ride pic. Excellent job getting that one!

This trip report is the best! Thanks to all involved.

Thanks for your comments and devotion to this thread!

I don't know why I can't get the orientation on the TOT seat belt picture right, but I guess it is kind of funny the way it is.

I have several more updates from AnjieNet's trip to come, plus FB has at least 3 more trips AND a cruise with some familiar friends.

One Enchanted Evening- MNSSHP Oct 23




Flat Ben's friends were going as characters from Enchanted (Rapunzel and Mother Gothel) so we thought transforming Flat Ben into Flat Flynn was in order:







Flat Flynn even met Real Flynn, who was very sorry that Ben did not get to visit Walt Disney World this year.






Flat Flynn with The Prince and Snow White




Then the group spent some time at Belle's Enchanted Story Time and they even got a peek at the Be Our Guest Tavern.


Waiting to enter Maurice's cottage:







(Sleeping Beauty)


Be Our Guest, Be Our Guest, put our service to the test! Well, not yet. Maybe next time.




Waiting in line for the new Little Mermaid attraction




Time to Trick or Treat while waiting for the second parade. Flat Flynn gets a bit hungry and heads for the treats.

That bag may be a bit big, Flat Flynn:




That's better- just the right size for a Tootsie Roll

Yay Ben - too fun! We're already thinking about Ben's January trip. Never a dull moment with Ben. If the FP line was longer than expected, or we were waiting for something, the boys always said, "Mom, get Ben."

Noticed that FB hasn't been on the Wild Africa Trek yet! We'd love to take him in April!

So glad you are enjoying this!

Wanna hear something funny about the costume? I kept procrastinating about sending FB to AnjieNet because I knew I wanted to do a few special things. Then her trip came up before I knew it and it happened during an unexpectedly busy week and I had a deadline to get him to her. So while I did get a chance to make FB, Flat Harry Ben and a poncho, I didn't have time to put together a costume. The picture I used was of Ben from Colonial Day, white shirt, knickers, hat. He just needed the vest. I sent Anjie a few raw materials (the pouch and some pleather for the belt). Guess where she got the design for Flat Flynn's vest! From Penny (chaoscent) on the DISign board!!! Flat Ben's original traveling companion.

I'm hoping we see Penny again soon- I emailed her several weeks ago and she had a lot going on and didn't have much time to DIS.

I'm happy to hear Flat Ben will be joining your family again! As you mentioned on the BC board, guess I have to provide a coat for him. I know just the coat to use for him for your trip!

You are correct! He hasn't been invited on the Trek yet. You are welcome to entertain him in April. PM your address to me or email me at beachclubdee@yahoo.com and I can send him out to you.

Speaking of safaris... Next up is Flat Ben's visit to Animal Kingdom with AnjieNet and friends. I should be able to post those pictures tomorrow morning.
