We were at the meet in Indiana and are ready for another one!!!
Can you recommend a nice place to stay for the weekend? I think my husband is coming along with my brother and his wife.
Let me know what I can do to help. Pam

I plan on coming to the meet since I live about 3.5 hours south of Chicago near Springfield Il.

Does anyone know where the event will be held? Or what hotel will have a block of rooms reserved?

I just updated the Facebook Page, but wanted to post here too!

We are VERY close to choosing out location.

If anyone would like to help or donate items, send me a PM or email.

I'll be sending out an email soon to all of the volunteers soon. I promise I haven't been ignoring anyone!!

Thanks all for your patience and interest!! We are so excited!

My husband covered the opening of the exhibit yesterday for the DIS and said it was AMAZING! He called from the train and said "How soon can we come back?!"

Here's his review: http://blog.wdwinfo.com/2013/10/17/e...sney-archives/

Hi friends,

I am debating on changing the date for this. A location has not been secured and I am on my own in planning this. I am way too nervous about pulling this event off in 2 months.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

PLEASE email me if anyone is interested in helping. I've tried to respond to everyone. Email is a much better way to get a hold of me as I can't check the DIS everyday.

Thanks everyone for the support. If anyone has ideas, or donations please let me know.

Sincerely,

Laura

It's Official!! The Chicago DIS meet will be on SUNDAY, January 19 at 115 Bourbon Street from 1-6! There will be a ticket price that will include food, and drinks (alcoholic and non). I will have more info this weekend, but you can officially save the date! Thank you for your patience and tell your friends! Still looking for volunteers if you're interested! -Laura
