    I agree Penny and Jim are doing an excellent job!

    Yeah, Ben (real or flat) isn't really interested in girls yet, but I remember a conversation when I bringing him and some friends home from a birthday party in 2nd Grade.

    Ben "I have a girlfriend"

    Friend "Who?"

    Ben "Brie. She just doesn't know it."

    Mom's Thought Bubble: "Um, Ben. That's called stalking!"

    Flat Ben spent the day Pin Trading with Penny.

    Now he's hooked!

    Let's hope this new habit won't leave his mother's wallet "flat"


    Central NJ Pin breakfast- rumor has it the food and speakers were good.

    Thank you chaoscent (Penny & Jim) for showing Flat Ben a really great time around the World, introducing him to some hard-core pin trading (although it appears he only made one trade) and for sharing your precious vacation time with him.


    Next up: Cindydare and her family will be showing Flat Ben a good time.

    Glad you enjoyed it!

    Flat Ben isn't going back- he isn't leaving. He will be hanging out at the Beach Club until it is time for Cindy's trip.

    And, there's much much more to come! Flat Ben has invites for 3 additional trips this fall!!!

    Now I'm even more jealous of Flat Ben. He gets to stay at the BC between trips!

    Hopefully Bell Services will be storing him in the magic housekeeping closet. :)

    Thanks again to everyone, for amusing those of us who aren't able to be at WDW right now. :goodvibes

    I am liking the fact that CD will be escorting FB around! I think she will take just as good care and Show Ben a great time. Maybe FB is ready for some rides?

    Unfortunately, Flat Ben will not be making use of the BC Fantasy closet or even hanging out with the Noodles in Bell Services. I think he will Chillin' at the Check-in Desk.

    I enjoyed seeing where Flat Ben ended up each day, and I am excited to see all of the upcoming fun he will be having.

    I think Flat Ben will enjoy his time with Cindy and family. I don't know whether they are thrill ride junkies or not. Maybe FB will have his first turn on RockNRollerCoaster!

    Samantha (DD9) is definitely a thrill ride junkie.....RNRC is her favorite ride! So FB will be going on some rides for sure! She does not like TOT though, but she is supposed to ride it this year. She rode it back in 2010 and refused to go on last year. DH and DS4 started calling it the "Tower of Sam". ;) It's not the ride itself, but more of the preshow "twilight zone" stuff. Last year DH plugged his phone into the ipod dock in the room and woke her up to the "Twilight Zone" theme music....needless to say, she was not amused!

    (Real) Ben is the same way with ToT- the ride is fine, but the preshow freaks him out. Maybe Flat Ben and Samantha can help each other get through it this year.

    Just make sure someone is holding on tight to FB so he doesn't fly out the window!

    Flat Ben is pretty easy to please, so no worries! I'm sure you will see a smile from him (even if that is ALL you see at some points) ;)

    But aren't Penny and Jim's activities and photos fantastic!

    Definitely excellent work, Penny and Jim! I'm going to get the boys into the planning for Ben. Since the older two are now 12 and 13, they can definitely relate to Ben and his pre-teen interest in Disney vacations! Just a preview - Ben may be "dancing" with them during Illuminations.

    I can't wait until we see Flat Ben again. Unfortunately he doesn't seem to like getting wet (something about how he will wrinkle and peel). Hopefully the "thicker", more muscular model will get to make a trip to Storm Along Bay and Romp with the Noodle family.

    Here is a joke for your Ben ( flat or fluffy).
    What do you call a fake noodle?







    Are you ready?




    Are you sure?






    OK, here is it come.


    You call a fake noodle an "Impasta".
    This was stolen from the Wilmont's 2012 trip report entitled "Orlando 2012, the WDW Olympics/August 2012. It's quite the enjoyable read and highly recommended.
    Fondly, Pastina

    :welcome:

    So glad to have you here following the Adventures of Flat Ben. I suspect you have a lot in common with him.

    He is currently in the World but I haven't had any reports yet. I hope that means his host family is having way too much fun to send me pictures.

    Oh, or it could be that I failed to provide my text and email info until after they had arrived!

    FB has a few more adventures lined up, too! It will be a busy fall for him.

    As for the "thicker" more dimensional version of the boy, from your plastic lips to... well whoever is listening. We would LOVE to join you and your family at SAB.

    Seriously?

    Oh My Goodness! This is the funniest thread ever. I love that Ben gets to spend so much time in the World. I may have to borrow Ben's PowerPoint Presentation to plead my case to DH.
