GKTW Event: Indianapolis Disney Meet, Sept. 7 - 6th Annual - All Welcome

Hi Everyone,

In 2012 we held our 5th annual Indianapolis Disney meet. Approximately 180 Disney fans attended from as far as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois, and all over Indiana.

Here is the link to last year's meet thread.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2889133

To look for additional Indianapolis Disney Meet updates be sure to like our Facebook page.

Our 6th Year!
This will be our 6th 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 $13,000 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 our meet 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 September 7th 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!

This Year's meet will not be Labor Day Weekend. It will be the weekend after on Saturday, September 7th 2013

The two locations are in opposite corners of the city. A rental car is recommended unless you have other means of transportation around the city. Indianapolis does not have a mass-transit system. Please send me a message if you have questions about getting from the airport to the meet location.

I would love to go !

Since I am local I will bring whatever the organizers need.

I also have access to a promo-store ( owned by the company I work for ) and could bring us personalized huggies/gifts/cups/keepsakes if that would be better.

Just let me know!

I could also help with the door prizes too.

I could contact some race teams and drivers ( Chip Ganassi especially ) for donations for the giveaways if you want. Also, a past Colts player or two.

I will shut up now and stop being so eager.

I was watching and heard this great news. I've always wanted to come, but being Labor Day weekend made it difficult for me. Now, I can probably make it. I'll put it in my calendar!

I met Pete several years ago at the Harry Potter soft opening at Universal ( he probably doesn't remember me ) and thanked him for the Dis Boards.

Because of these boards my trip ran so smoothly, the information here is priceless to this crazy over the top planner.

Looking forward to telling Pete thanks again!

Hi Everyone - We are looking for someone who wouldn't mind helping out with creating a logo for our 6th annual Indy Meet.

The logo should consist of a black and white checkered format with some form of Disney or Mickey Mouse flare. Last year's logo(s) were very well done. See my signature for last years logo and our Indy Disney Meet Facebook page for our ear hat logo.

If you are interested send me a PM.

Thanks!
