This is Ben: This is Flat Ben: This is Ben holding Flat Ben: 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! Next Up: Flat Ben goes to a Pin Trading Convention with Chaoscent (Penny and DH) .
