    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. :wizard:

    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!

    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! :)
