What? You mean you can't take the Chunnel that connects the UK to the US?

For those of you who are coming, considering coming, or just want to follow along please feel free to join the Indy Disney Meet's official Facebook page.

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!

I'm from Indy but I've never attended, probably due to the fact I don't have kids. Maybe I could just stop by though and make a donation to GKTW?

Although I'm not from the area, I know most of the group pretty well. There is absolutely no requirement that you have kids to enjoy yourself at this meet. Its just an opportunity for a bunch of Disney fans to meet and share experiences, laughter and good food.

Families with children are encouraged to attend. We have a whole section of the facility reserved for kids activities like face painting, Disney tattoos, coloring, Disney themed games, and even Kidcot Fun Stops. There are prizes specifically for children. Last year we had life-sized princess and Pixar character themed cutouts for kids and adults to take pictures with during the meet. Kids love the meet and find it difficult to leave at the end of the day.

Hey Everyone -

I wanted to let everyone know we'll be posting hotel information for those of you coming from out of town very soon. Please continue to spread the word.

If you plan on attending please post here in our official meet thread.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there and raising money for the Power of 10 Give Kids the World 1 Million Dollar Challenge!

Over the past 3 years the Indianapolis Meet has raised nearly $5,000 for Give Kids the World. We hope to continue our tradition of a day of Disney fun, food, prizes, and giving.

I'd like to wish Dave and Tara successful meets in Orlando and the Boston area. Thanks to everyone for their support!

This package for up to 4 people includes:
- 3 nights at a select Universal Orlando onsite resort (Portofino Bay, Hard Rock Hotel, or the Royal Pacific Resort).
- 3 day park hopper passes for the Universal Orlando Resort
- Admission to the DIS-A-Palooza party to be held the evening of 12/10/2011. You can find out more information about the party here. This special DIS event will be held inside the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Islands of Adventure theme park.

This package is very specific and must be used during the weekend specified above. Unfortunately, we can't make modfications to the package. This includes the dates.

As previously mentioned, we are not sure how we are giving this package away just yet. We'll have more details the closer we get to the meet. Stay Tuned!
Awesome prize!!

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.
