Smile Indianapolis Disney Meet Sat, Sept 6th - 7th Annual - All Welcome!

Hi Everyone,

In 2013 we held our 6th annual Indianapolis Disney meet. Approximately 300 Disney fans attended from as far as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois, and all over Indiana.

Here is the link to last year's meet thread.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=47686041

To look for additional Indianapolis Disney Meet updates be sure to like our Facebook page.

Our 7th Year!
This will be our 7th Indianapolis Disney Meet. Over the years the meet has become more than just a chance for Disney enthusiasts to join together for a day of Disney fun. It has given us the opportunity to meet knew people who share our love for all things Disney. We've raised almost $22,000 for Give Kids the World. We feel very fortunate to be able to host an event like this so close to our home. For those of you who travel from so far away to attend the meet we really appreciate it and hope you will consider attending again this year. We have some exciting plans for this year's meet to celebrate our 7th year. More to come as we draw closer to our meet weekend.

The intent of the meet is to get to know other Disney enthusiasts like us and have some fun and laughs along the way. Like last year there will be no cost to attend this meet. We just ask that you bring a pitch-in food and/or drink item to share for the food table.

This meet is open to anyone willing to drive or even fly to the Indianapolis area. We'd love to have you join us. I'm hopeful to have several Hoosiers and other friends from other states join us in the Indianapolis area. If enough out-of-town guests join us we may have additional activities on the Friday night before the meet or the day after.

Please see below for meet information and details. Check this thread often for future details. We are planning an afternoon worth of fun Disney activities for kids and adults alike, prize drawings, contests and even some secret fun! We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.

Between now and September 6th I'll be updating this thread with meet information and attendees who will be joining us at the meet. Please post if you can attend the meet, how many guests will be joining your party including children and their ages. Even if you can't attend please post just to say hi!

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to post them here or send me a private message (PM).

We hope to see you at the meet!

This Year's meet will not be Labor Day Weekend. It will be the weekend after on Saturday, September 6th 2014

If there are Dole Whips this year, count on me to bring (Dole) pineapple juice so we can all enjoy Dole Whip FLOATS!!!

You can also count on me for name tags again

And let me know if you need pre-meet help. I'm local-ish.

Hi Everyone - Just a quick update. We continue to make plans and discuss details about our meet coming up on Saturday, September, 6th.

Of note:

This year we will be accepting credit card payments for silent auction items and additional raffle tickets. Our event is free to attend (bring a food item to share), but if you wish to bid on silent auction items or buy additional raffle tickets for our fabulous prizes we will accept all major credit cards, checks, or cash.

One of our local radio stations WIBC will be onsite promoting our event and giving away small prizes to families and children. My understanding is Terri Stacy (station personality) will be onsite to help support the event in the community.

As usual we'll be giving away over $500 in Disney gift cards. The more raffle tickets you purchase the better your chances of walking away with a great prize. Everyone who attends the meet will get 1 free ticket at the door.

The live DIS Unplugged podcast recording will take place towards the end of the meet; around 5:00PM. this time seemed to work very well last year and why change a good thing.

We hope to see you on Saturday, September 6th from 1 - 7PM.

I hope this off-topic post isn't too offensive but I figured this was the easiest place to find a bunch of local die hard Disney fans. Is anyone such a fan that they would be interested in a free copy of the unofficial guide from 1994? I didn't think it was worth shipping anywhere, but before we toss it I thought I'd see if anyone is interested in seeing how different things were 20 years ago.

New to the forums and never been to a DIS Meet, but I've seen podcasts and read a few threads on them and they look like so much fun! I am getting back from WDW earlier that week; call me crazy but this is something I would love to check out. I might have to drive in that morning and drive out that night, but perhaps put me on the "probably" list?

Is there food / drink that you feel the meet needs more of? I can't cook to save my life, but I could pick up chips and dip or something. Let me know! Thanks so much for putting all of this together!

If you wish to attend just post here and let us know how many will be in your party.

I am really, really hoping to be at the brunch but won't know for sure until this upcoming Thursday for sure. I don't know if I have to be at my job for part of the weekend or not. If I have both days off I will be at the brunch will bells on. Not literally of course. That would be odd.

Oh, and it would just be me.
