    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! :goodvibes 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. If we have enough demand for hotel rooms I'll reserve a block specifically for our meet.

    The Indianapolis Internation Airport is located on the Southwest side of Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Disney meet is located on the Northeast side of Indianapolis. 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.

    The DIS is a contributor to Give Kids the World Village of Central Florida via the Power of 10 $1 Million dollar initiative. We will be conducting a few activities during the meet where the proceeds will go to benefit this wonderful charity on behalf of the DIS and the Power of 10.

    Hi! That's super. I'll mark you down. There's a lot of time between now and the meet to decide what to bring. We can always use more hot foods and appetizers. Looking forward to meeting you.

    Hi! This looks like fun. I told my sister about it (we are taking our families on a joint trip to WDW in October) and she says let's go! We'll bring the kids and her hubby so 3 adults and 4 kids. I'll check back in closer to the date to see what kind of food you will be needing.

    Hi Sally,

    That's terrific! It should be a lot of fun. I hope you have a lot of fun planning your October trip. That's a great month to be at Walt Disney World. Looking forward to meeting you. If you don't mind me asking, where do you live?

    We've been planning this trip for over a year, so you can bet we're all excited! I live in Franklin, IN and my sister and her family recently moved from Omaha to Ft. Wayne, IN.

    This sounds like so much fun.:goodvibes I'm orignially from Sellersburg (southern part of IN right close to Louisville) We will probably be in Indy that weekend anyway for football and races. Sounds like something fun for me to do while DF is at drag races. Will be looking for further info.
