    Hi Everyone,

    In 2013 we held our 6th annual Indianapolis Disney meet. Approximately 300 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.

    Our 7th Year!
    This will be our 7th 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 $22,000 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 7th 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! :goodvibes We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.

    Between now and September 6th 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 6th 2014

    If there are Dole Whips this year, count on me to bring (Dole) pineapple juice so we can all enjoy Dole Whip FLOATS!!! :cloud9:

    You can also count on me for name tags again :)

    And let me know if you need pre-meet help. I'm local-ish.

    The meet is for anyone and everyone. We'd love to have you join us. It's an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy a day of Disney entertainment. The charity aspect is also something to feel good about. It's also a great chance to meet some of the podcast team. We hope to see you there.
