    You can count on me and my dw to attend. We normally go to Disney for labor day weekend, so we always miss out on the DisMeet. I'm local as well so if you need any help let me know

    I rarely post, as I'm usually a pretty shy person! Lol I am a beauty pageant director and have a pageant scheduled for September 7th & I'm considering changing dates to make this meet. I'm from Norris City, IL.. About 3 1/2 hours from Indy. I would love to make it but I'm a little nervous about how it all works and don't want to be awkwardly standing around LOL.

    I have never been to one either but I am NOT worried about standing around. Too many people in one place all with the same reason for being there? I am sure the whole thing will be filled with laughing and chatting. Heck, I can talk to just about anyone (comes from living in the south for 14 years)! So if nothing else, I will make sure you are not awkwardly standing around :cool1:

    Hi Everyone. For those of you who do not follow us on Facebook we now have an active hotel room block at the Cambria Suites. The hotel is about 3 miles from the site of the meet with a lot of dining and shopping options in the area.

    Room rates are $119 plus tax per night for a king suite and $129 plus tax per night for a double queen suite. Prices include a breakfast buffet each morning for up to 4 guests in the room.

    When calling to reserve your room ask for room block Give Kids the World.
    Here's the information about the hotel.

    We will be there again this year! :woohoo: Are there any other events going on that weekend as well? I am going to work on the craft that I suggested last year of the Mickey "stained glass". I am hoping to test it out with my kids this weekend.

    I akwardly stood around last year for all of 15 minutes and then my kids started dancing with Corey and Julie's kids and they were our ice breaker :-) I'd be happy to be a friend for you to meet there :thumbsup2

    Don't be nervous! I was feeling a lot like you were when I came last year. It was my first meet and everyone was SO friendly. There were icebreakers games, but my favorite thing to ask people was what's your screen name and why? It was interesting to hear everyone's answers!

    I just plopped myself down at a table and started talking to those around me. I ended up having a good time and staying much longer than I expected!

    I'm looking forward to this year's!

    Thinking about driving up from Nashville. I've never been to Indy, so may plan a whole weekend! What types of things do people bring in terms of food, and what things are you looking for in terms of the silent auction/dontations?

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    I brought a big pan of macaroni & cheese, but I live locally so I was able to do that. Some others brought bags of chips, fried chicken, subway sandwiches, cookies. Some people went all out & made "Mickey-themed" desserts. There was even a Dole Whip machine!

    It's a great day. I'm really looking forward to this year! Hope you decide to join us!

    How much pin trading goes on? My 10 year old is an eager pin trader and I wondered how much to build this up for her, but we expect to attend regardless.

    The amount of pin trading tends to vary. Some meets have been very active and some not so much. I'd suggest bringing only pins you'd wish to trade. We encourage trading. I know my daughter will bring some of hers to trade.

    in the 'what are you bringing' category....

    We plan to pick up some chicken fingers at Meijers. [There's still one nearby, right?]
