Don't be nervous! I was feeling a lot like you were when I came last year. It was my first meet and everyone was SO friendly. There were icebreakers games, but my favorite thing to ask people was what's your screen name and why? It was interesting to hear everyone's answers!

I just plopped myself down at a table and started talking to those around me. I ended up having a good time and staying much longer than I expected!

I'm looking forward to this year's!

Thinking about driving up from Nashville. I've never been to Indy, so may plan a whole weekend! What types of things do people bring in terms of food, and what things are you looking for in terms of the silent auction/dontations?

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

I brought a big pan of macaroni & cheese, but I live locally so I was able to do that. Some others brought bags of chips, fried chicken, subway sandwiches, cookies. Some people went all out & made "Mickey-themed" desserts. There was even a Dole Whip machine!

It's a great day. I'm really looking forward to this year! Hope you decide to join us!

How much pin trading goes on? My 10 year old is an eager pin trader and I wondered how much to build this up for her, but we expect to attend regardless.

The amount of pin trading tends to vary. Some meets have been very active and some not so much. I'd suggest bringing only pins you'd wish to trade. We encourage trading. I know my daughter will bring some of hers to trade.

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.

Currently building up my Disney library. I'd be interested in checking it out

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!
