New details are emerging about Ben Affleck's family-friendly birthday weekend in Florida.

After the Batman v Superman star flew to the Sunshine State on Saturday morning to visit the Universal Orlando Resort with ex Jennifer Garner and their three kids, the actor and his family continued the celebration Sunday at Disney World.

"Ben just wanted to spend his birthday weekend with his family," a source revealed to E! News. "And that's what he did."

While some pictures published online show the couple with more frowns than smiles, our insider assures us that the very-public summer trip was a success for all parties.

"Despite appearances, they actually had a really good time. The kids had a great day," a source shared with E! News. "Anyone who has been knows that navigating through an amusement park with multiple children is difficult at times. But they had a great day."

Just one day before their visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, several onlookers spotted the famous family at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort. While experiencing the rides and attractions, including Hogwarts Castle, one onlooker didn't notice anything dramatic at all.

"They looked like they were having a great day together," an eyewitness shared with E! News exclusively. Both Ben and Jennifer were "smiling and the kids looked very happy and adorable too."

Ever since announcing their divorce in June, the A-list pair have remained focused on co-parenting daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel.

Whether enjoying family days in Atlanta or vacationing in the Bahamas, both parties want to make the split as easy as possible, especially for the kids.

"Ben and Jen are making the best of the situation," a source shared with E! News. "They are just trying to get through the separation and have put on really brave faces."
