If possible, please spread the word about the meet. I typically hear from or bump into Disney fans in the area after each meet wishing they had known about it ahead of time. Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update on auction items and prizes for the meet.

We have some pretty amazing prizes for this years meet including:
Several $25 & $50 Disney gift cards
A Dooney & Bourke wristlet
Gift baskets from various vendors like Dunkin Donuts
Different variations of mouse ears
Disney World pins & lanyards
Gasoline gift cards from various gas station retailers
& much, much more!

Auctions items include:
Darth Goofy big fig from Star Wars Weekends 2011
A princess line Dooney & Bourke handbag
A dining review with John & Kevin
Pieces from the Robert Olszewski collection
& much, much more!

All of the proceeds from the silent auction and the meet in general will go to the DIS's Power of 10 - Give Kids the World campaign.

We'll also have several kids activities including EPCOT Duffy Bears to decorate, kids Disney trivia and much more. kids will have their own section of the hall for their enjoyment.

Additionally, members of the Walt Disney Moms Panel will be present with special handouts. They can answer questions about their Moms Panel experience and the application and interview process.

This event is totally free. If you show up you'll have a chance to win some great prizes, plus have an afternoon filled with Disney fun, food & drink while getting to know several Disney fans. Everybody at the meet gets it too . All we ask is you bring a food item to share with everyone at the meet.

If you are coming in from out of town and you have questions please let me know. We'll do whatever we can to make your trip as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

We hope to see you there!

Bumping up so those are aware of Indy's Power of 10 Event Saturday, September 3rd. We have a lot of great stuff planned, terrific silent auction items, and great prizes. If you live in the midwest please consider coming to support a great cause.

Also, in my signature below you'll notice another Power of 10 meet/event at a grand villa in Kidani Village. Please click on that link for more information. If you are going to be in Orlando the evening of Monday, October 3rd please consider attending for a great cause.

Talking Def Next Year

Kelly & I (LutheranChick82 & Chefmickey123) will not be able to attend this year, but will be there next year. I will be in my last year of seminary at Ft. Wayne and her folks live in Indy.

We are out of town on our my intership now.

Can't wait, and by that point in time we will be less than 9 months from our next WDW trip.

GKTW Rocks!
