Indianapolis DIS Meet - 3rd Annual - All Welcome
Welcome to the 3rd annual Indianapolis Labor Day Weekend DIS Meet Thread
Last Labor Day weekend 2009 we held our 2nd annual Indianapolis DIS meet. Approximately 80 Disney fans attended from as far as Northeast Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Chicago, IL, and all over Indiana.
Here is the link to last year's thread and meet pictures.
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 item 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! :goodvibes We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.
Between now and Labor Day weekend 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).
Hope to see you at the meet!

I also wanted to let any of you Indy area WISHers that we have a WISH meet on Friday May 7th. There is a group of us coming into town for the 500 Festival Mini Marathon and we will be getting together at The Old Spaghetti Factory on S. Meridian.
They don't take reservations and open at 5:00 that day so I am going to get there to put in our names and try to get a 6:00 seating. If anyone is interested, even if you are not doing the marathon, come buy this thread and introduce yourself and let us know you will be there. I am keeping a running count on post #133 of the linked thread.
Count us in again!! :woohoo:
Jason (aaronmckie) and Shanan (A.Mickey)!
Not sure if we're bringing our son Aaron just yet (or what we're bringing).
Labor Day seems so far away... but it'll be here before we know it!
Please count my family and me in!
Me (Sooze), DH (Matt), DS (Tyson-10), DD (Shaelyn-4)
I'll get back to you on the food!
Are we finally official??:cool1:
Count us in.
Depends who comes with me - maybe 2, maybe 4.
Will probably bring some kind of cookies, since they travel well.
What is a WISHer just wondering?
I was thinking about coming to the Indy dis meet but don't really know anyone. Would it be kinda akward?
I did my first DIS meet almost two years ago and I've gone on to make some friends that have become my best friends... you never know!
From what I've seen (and me and my wife included), DISers are among the friendliest people you will ever meet.
I'll bet you a mickey bar that if you go you wont regret it :flower3:
You know I think I will try to come. My family aren't DISers but the all love Disney so maybe I can talk them all in to coming.
It does sound like fun!
You can count us in too! We have been to the first two and we have always had a great time. Thanks for doing this again Aaron!:goodvibes
Shelley and Tim
Mickey Krispie Treats
Count the Incredible 5 (2 adults and 3 kids)of us in. My wife's screen name is FairyGodmotherJen. We've been to the first two and they haven't "uninvited" us yet! :rotfl2:
I will make Mickey Mouse shaped rice krispie treats again. They seemed to go over well. I may dip some in chocolate and some sprinkles in honor of Goofy's Candy Company. I can also dip a couple in some other things if anyone has a request. Looking forward to it! Thanks again Aaron!
Thanks for organizing this, Aaron! I regretted not going in 2008 and was on vacation in 2009 - so I hope to be able to join you in 2010! I just wrote it on my calendar.
Hey Aaron, I'll be there this year. Not sure what to bring yet. Maybe the Queso again. I'll have to think about it. So far just me coming...
