Hey All!

Thought I would see if there are any folks on here from the Tri-State. I am in Evansville, IN myself and thought it would cool to get together and realize there are DIS members here around us!

Let me know!!:goodvibes

Hi everybody! Sorry it has taken me awhile to post back but real job has called and I have had to devote quite a bit of time to it and also being a Mom!

If you all want to put a link in your siggys that would be great to get the attention of other folks who are from the area.

I thought once we got 10 or so people we could schedule a DIS meet up!

Fall has begun up here! It's actually chilly in the mornings and winter last FOREVER up here. I hear Evansville has been having a drought lately. All of our family still lives there so we visit several times a year.

amyhughes
09-13-2007, 06:17 PM
It definitely has been DRY around here. We had a snap of cooler weather this week so here's hoping we get some rain out of it. All of the farmer's I work with are really worried about their corn.

Rellim
09-13-2007, 10:04 PM
So did you grow up in Evansville or move there? I grew up around there but have been gone for about 5 years now. We talk about moving back sometimes.

I was reading your pretrip report. I think you will love DVC and never want to do regular resorts again. That's what happened to us. Where are you staying?

amyhughes
09-13-2007, 10:10 PM
I have lived here most of my life. I did move away for a short time to work at WDW, but I missed my Grandma too much!

We are staying at the Boardwalk Villas! I have always wanted to, but it was way out of our price range! This way with renting we will spend the same as we did on renting a house but be on Disney Property. I am really pushing DH into it!

Rellim
09-14-2007, 10:02 AM
That's so cool that you worked at Disney. I've always wondered if the magic would be lost if you were a cast member. What did you do there? We always talk about retiring there.

My parents stayed at the Boardwalk and absolutely loved it. That will be great with kids I think.

We are leaving for WDW three weeks from tomorrow!! I'm getting really excited now. I think the planning and anticipation is as much fun as being there.

Hi there fellow Evansvillians. DW and myself are both originally from Evansville, both grew up on the west side, both went to Reitz, although 7 years apart. We moved up to the Indy area back in 88 and still live there. Glad to see there are other DIS board regulars from Evansville.:goodvibes

Hi All!


I was born in and grew up in Evansville and went to Reitz my freshman year
('78-'79). GO PANTHERS! Then we moved to North Carolina and I have lived here ever since. Isn't it about time for the West Side Fall Festival? Sure do miss those Pronto Pups!

-April :)

amyhughes
09-17-2007, 02:46 PM
Yes in fact Fall Festival is October 1-6th! I swear it off every year then I end up there somehow gorging!

This year I have an excuse as we will be working in a booth for my older son's school! Anyone have any requests? Corn Fritters? Elephant Ears? Pronto Pups?:cool1:

USA41018
09-17-2007, 04:37 PM
OMG we live in Edgewood. Our kids went to Hinsdale. You Live in Florence!!! This is so amazing.

We have to get together for lunch or something. We are on the dining plan and have our reservations made. Let me know what your plans are and maybe we can have a Northern KY meeting for at least a snack or a ride or something.

I am a grandma now but I am bringing a 21 year old son who went to Hinsdale and then Turkeyfoot and then Covington Catholic and now a senior at NKU. He still lives with us and we do a lot together. He is the youngest of my children. But my older ones went to Hinsdale also. When were you at Hinsdale.

Hope to talk with you soon.

I live in Henryville, Indiana. About 45 mins from Evansville and 20 mins north of Louisville, KY. We travel to Evansville a bit to shop!
What is the "siggys"?
Are any of you familiar with Pin trading? We love to trade. We started in 2005 and have been hooked ever since! My mother-n-law and her sister and my husband and I, all do it! My husband and I thought this was silly and we would never do it, but it is so much fun!!
I have a 15 month old son, who we have started a collection for as well.

I am all up for the meet! I think it would be fun! Also, I am VERY addicted to pin trading one of my favorite things about disney! :banana:
I just wish I knew where all the good single prince charmings are in this town..Lol!

dpcheercoach
09-18-2007, 07:25 PM
Can I join in too? I mostly enjoy reading posts...how I found this one...but I guess I am too intimidated to join in on many. So many good writers and then those who seem to bash each other kinda scares:scared1: me. Maybe I will fit in here and become more comfortable.

Anyway, I am from Southern Illinois too and live about an hour from Evansville. We go there often for shopping, eating out, etc. I actually lived in E'vill and went to USI many moons ago. I have family (in-laws) and some friends there too.

We were at WDW in June and planning to go back in May of 2008. I wish I were going for Christmas too, but not in the budget:sad2: Maybe another year.

Those of you form Illinois do you mind saying what town? I live in Fairfield.

Hi Linda :wave: Been away from my computer for a few days. Still looking for my yearbook from Hinsdale- I'm nearly certain your DS was in my class while I was student teaching... many moons ago!!

Welcome Shep! I'm in Florence and there's another gal on here is from Vanceburg (my2boysrtwicethefun- page 2) I know 2 other ladies in the NKY that are Disers... sounds like we should have a NKY meet!

Anyone up for setting up a meet in the Florence/Crestview Hills area?

May I ask a favor? that you pray for a dis friend of mine, she is from the Evensville area and was just in a car wreck last week and her 16 mo. old son was killed....can you all visit her pre trip (if you havent already) and share a thought or a prayer for her....her pre trip report is called ~Winklers see the world~She is unavaliable to post right now because both her and her husband are still in the hospital. Thank you for any prayers offered!! Any additional info on this accident is on page 17 and 18 of my TR (link in my siggy).

It really is up to those travelling a distance, as far as I am concerned. It seems with the amount of folks on here we have from all over Evansville might be the "Hub". And no I'm not saying that cause I live here!

I drive everyday 150 miles round trip so if I need to drive that is fine by me, but I would ask that it's on the weekend so that I can arrange childcare, etc.

I'll set it up on the thread.

We are thinking:
Evansville on a Saturday

Questions:
Evening or Afternoon

Do a Secret Santa (Secret Mickey) if it is in December?

TinkAsh2001

Hey friends - I just found this thread.

Are you kidding? I work in Murray. I'm a teacher at CCMS. We are taking a trip with our entire family next Christmas to Disney, guess who they put in charge? I've been spending a large amount of time planning.

You wouldn't happen to have any points to rent would you? I'm getting ready to rent from someone on the boards, which is quite nerve-wracking. Renting from someone you do not know....

amyhughes
11-15-2007, 07:44 PM
I actually have some advice to give on renting DVC points. DO IT! But there are some steps to take to insure your purchase is done right and most importantly so that you don't arrive at WDW expecting a resort room and be looked at confusedly!

1. Demand references.
2. Pay with PayPal or some other secure payment method that helps protect against someone taking your money and not fulfilling their end of the bargain. Most folks will charge a 3% surcharge b/c they get hit with a fee. But it is worth the peace of mind.
3. Prices should not be above $13 a point. I got outrs for 10-11 a point. Anything over $13 a point in a long term purchase is a rip off.
4. Your renter should work with you on reservations (provide you a room reservation code), Magical Express, Dining Reservations, and Room Preferances.
5. Constant communication is absolutely key in these relationships! Before you pay a dime make sure you a have a rental agreement and that you each have a copy of the agreement and the payment schedule and any penalties for late or missed payments. This is a business transaction, and if you protect yourself in a manner like this it will help to protect your vacation.

Hope This Helps!
Amy

Hello Everyone!

I just found this thread. I live in Washington, Indiana. I grew up in Terre Haute and lived in Evansville for a short while. I am glad to find some other Disney fans in Indiana. Our next trip is Jan 22 and I can't wait. It should be fun to chat with other in the area.

dcrouch, mommymcqueenof3, abcboys, bigkid@disney, mrsksomeday, chamonix, dpcheercoach, and sarcasticblonde...ya'll will know where I'm located. :goodvibes

I've been in Herrin for 6 years, which is 10 miles east of Carbondale...Go Dawgs! :thumbsup2 DH and I are both originally from Murphysboro, which is 7 miles west of Carbondale.

Evansville is just a hop, skip and a jump away for me...I'm 10 minutes off of Interstate 57 (Marion, IL) and then it's 40 minutes to Mt. Vernon and Interstate 64 and about another hour and I'm there. I know there is another way to go on the backroads through Harrisburg, but the bridge into Indiana has been out of commission since the one in Minnesota collapsed so can't go that way now.

I'd be up for a DIS meet! Shopping in Evansville is pretty good so make a day of it I say. ;)

Our next trip to WDW is a "grownups only" one...January 5-10. We had some DVC points that we needed to use so as DH said, we hafto go. :p Then we're going back March 10-14 for spring break. Our DS's high school marching band (Carterville) is marching before the afternoon parade in MK on March 13. We offered to chaperone, but DS said we've done our share already. :hug: So, it'll be grownups only again. I have to tell ya...the grownup only trips have been harder to plan than the ones with DS. :rotfl:

Nice to see so many folks from the Tri-State area!

Ah, you're a glutton for punsihment like DS! He and his uncle have been plotting their Black Friday adventures for about a week. Not me, thanks! I did that when DS was little, but as I have gotten older I can't deal with the crazy crowds as much.

I'd go with the second weekend of December for the DIS meet...DS is marching in the Lights Fantastic parade December 1st so I'd miss the DIS meet.

Hope everyone has a safe and "full-filling" Thanksgiving!

Yes, that is the parade. It's pretty nice if you can tolerate the cold. DS has marched in it a few years now, and so far only last year was the cold a real hassle for me, but it was still fun! You should go once!

Good Morning everyone...Evansville here born and raised on the WEST side by USI...(Mcdowell road)...got married and moved to Mount Vernon, IN for about 3 years, found the drive a killer and moved back to the West side (where I currently live). I work for a company called ALCOA, and my wife is a school teacher. Our family is heavily into tennis. We live, breathe, and eat tennis.
I was a Day school snob and then a USI graduate. As you can see by my signature we are going to Universal. I found a flight through Southwest from Nashville to MCO for the 4 of us for, are you ready, $650.00 TOTAL. Great departure and return times, also. We have been to Orlando every year for the past 17 years (either Disney or Universal, mostly Disney).
I have a son (9) and daughter (13) and we have driven and flown (50/50 split). We have always enjoyed Disney and Universal and always look forward to our trip.
Now that I have thoroughly bored you, I am glad to see others from the area that subscribe to the boards.

Yes, Ashley, we are a tennis family. Besides myself, my daughter (13) and son (10) both play. The son is ranked 3rd in the state of Indiana and the daughter is ranked 28th in their age divisions.
I am also a USTA official.
