Smile Indianapolis Disney Meet - 5th Annual - All Welcome!

Hi Everyone,

Last Labor Day weekend 2011 we held our 4th annual Indianapolis Disney meet. Approximately 110 Disney fans attended from as far as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois, Canada and all over Indiana.

Here is the link to last year's meet thread.

Our 5th Anniversary!
This will be our 5th Indianapolis Disney Meet. Over the years the meet has become more than just a chance for Disney enthusiasts to join together for a day of Disney fun. It has given us the opportunity to meet knew people who share our love for all things Disney. We've raised almost $9,000 for Give Kids the World. We feel very fortunate to be able to host an event like this so close to our home. For those of you who travel from so far away to attend the meet we really appreciate it and hope you will consider attending again this year. We have some exciting plans for this year's meet to celebrate our 5th year. More to come as we draw closer to Labor Day weekend.

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 food and/or drink item to share 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! 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).

We hope to see you at the meet!

The Cambria Suites is the preferred hotel for the Indianapolis Disney Meet. Located 4 miles from the meet location the Cambria Suites is right across the street from the Hamilton Town Center shopping mall with convenient dining and other entertainment options.

Hi Jennifer -
I'm so glad you guys are coming again.
Yes, the plan is to have it in the same place, but until I know for sure I don't want to post it. I'll know for sure very soon.

The Quigleys from Champaign, IL will be returning, but we'll be down to two this year, since my son will be away at college by then. Can't wait to see everyone! Thanks for organizing the event again this year! Y'all do a wonderful job! I'm not sure what we will bring yet - something that isn't perishable.

My daughter and I will again make the trek, circumstances permitting. So, it's me and my DD17. I haven't read all the posts, sorry, I choose to bring brownies, unless someone or several someones have already written that down.

Aaron, do you have the artwork from you signature in a nice big file somewhere? Will it enlarge to a t-shirt sized logo? My daughter might like to make a t-shirt. A blue shirt might look really nice, just sayin'...
