Why not!

We are going to be at AKL, the Halloween party, the Disney Dream for 4 nights, Beach club villas, Art of Animation and a Christmas party. If you want him to join us let me know and I'll send you my address.
Holy carp! What a fantastic trip!!! Unfortunately, Flat Ben isn't able to join you but where and when should I meet you with my suitcase???

J/K- Flat Ben would have a blast on that trip! Can you send me an email at beachclubdee@yahoo.com

I could PM you or you could PM me but... Guess What! I have exceed the allowable PM limit in not one, but two DIS accounts! When I get a chance I will clear out some space.

I found myself to be surprisingly excited to hear that another DISer saw Flat Ben at WDW. If that had been me, I would have started following Flat Ben around and my husband would have been so impatient with me.

Love all the great tour guides that are stepping up!
Not to mention the uncomfortable feelings of the hosts you started stalking.

We are getting to the point where Flat Ben needs his own appointment calendar.

I'm starting to get a little scared that if some of his trips overlap, he may see himself and then the time-space continuum may be broken or worse yet, one of the Flat Bens will start complaining "He's having more fun than I am!"

Even when we did Cinderella's Royal Table - Ariel said that her friends Rapunzel, Flynn, Snow White, Charming and Cinderella told her about the flat kids at the Halloween party. I love that the flat kids have a reputation that precedes them!

Jessie - I wish you had come and said hello at Tusker House!!

I have been meaning to ask you- so how exactly did you introduce the Flat Kids to the characters.

"Hi- These are my daughters who are not on this trip and then another random boy who we have never met would you please pose with them???"

Pixarmom, I am going on vacation with your family next time! FB looks like he is having the time of his life! GG Slushies, jib slide, MNSSHP with costume, spending time with two Maudes....I love it! Hope the rest of your trip is magical!

Well...that would have been too complicated - we just said we left our kids at home - but brought flat versions of them. We adopted Ben for the week

Speaking of adoption... Are you hanging onto Ben Flat for any future trips?

As was revealed earlier in this thread, there may *ahem* be other Flat Ben's out there so I really don't need him back.

But then again, if you are done with the whole FB experience, that is fine too.

I don't want to post all of Pixarmom's pictures again but can I tell you I was HOWLING with laughter, just at a time when I really needed it! It's just me and the dog at home as I post this and the dog is giving me "the look" that says I have totally lost it, which I have....

OMG SO FUNNY!!!

It certainly looked like a lot of fun. Glad you liked the Cheshire mask. Didn't do so well with Flynn!

I am so glad to hear that! This is a lot of fun.


Next up: Flat Ben(s) should be arriving on AnjieNet's doorway shortly for another trip including FB's first visit to "The Dark Side"

Well, considering that we go so often, I am sure that FB will make a return trip

Flat Ben has arrived and Flynn is quite fine. We leave Saturday morning. Hope FB can handle getting up at 4:00 am better than my daughter!
