Smile Indianapolis DIS Meet - 2nd Annual - All Welcome

Welcome to the 2nd annual Indianapolis Labor Day Weekend DIS Meet Thread

Hi Everyone,

My name is Aaron from Fishers, IN. I'm a huge Disney Parks fan who loves everything about Disney World.

Last Labor Day weekend 2008 we held our first 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.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....polis+DIS+Meet

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 Sunday following the meet.

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).

Hope to see you at the meet!

The meet will probably be in the afternoon and go into the evening. I'll have more of an idea of the exact time when we get closer to the meet.

As of right now we are coming! DH, 2DS 6 and 9.

Last year my job interfered, I am incredibly busy that time of year - but as of right now I am unemployed due to budget cuts for next year so count me in! Could this be the bright side to not having a job?!

I will let you know what we will bring as of right now I am thinking of this yummy carmel brownie dessert.

We planned a picnic for school this year and had everyone bring their own drinks, plates and utensils. It cut down on cost/less planning for us too...just throwing that out there for you.

We're there, Aaron. Susan and I wouldn't miss it.

I'll at least bring the same as last year, and I'll PM you with some ideas if that's OK; particularly with GKTW fund-raising.

Any help you need, please just ask.

Hi Dan!
I hope you can make it! Yes, they will be there again. They enjoyed it so much last year they can't wait for it again. I'll tell them you are probably coming. They will be delighted to hear it.

We had lunch with Cocowum and Launchpad11B in the Palo on PCC 1.0. We will be driving from Birmingham, AL to Minneapolis in our motorhome during that week. We have to be in Minneapolis on the morning of the 9th for a Navy Reunion and are planning to stop in Indianapolis for the DIS meet on the 5th.

Question --- can we park our motorhome on the fairgrounds for 2 nights, 4th and 5th? We are fully self-contained so we don't require any facilities except a level and secure location.

Darrel (Hpyhiker) and Jo

Hi Darrel,
I'm so glad you can make it! There is an outside chance Paul, Alicia, and Jen maybe able to come to the meet. We'll see.

As far as the motorhome I'll ask for you. I'm going to the fairgrounds this Friday so I'll ask for you and see what they say. I'm going to guess it may not be ok, but I will ask and let you know.

Looking forward to seeing you guys. I don't think we met on the cruise. I apologize, but I'm sure we will meet in Indy in September.
