Everyone is welcomed!

I have been notified that there may be a problem when registering. Please note that when registering for adults the only choice should be a lunch box choice. When registering for children, the only choices should be a lunch box choice, apple or chips, and a drink. If you chose a shirt, there should be a box choice for specific sizes.

If you have any problems, please let me know as soon as you can. I do apologize for this inconvenience. Apparently I either checked too many boxes or not the correct ones when creating the Eventbrite page. (I am new to this...:goodvibes). I do hope it has been straightened out.

Help Richmond Dis Meet contribute to the GKTW and help some wonderful and deserving families.

Hi Everyone:

Please watch the ticket count that is placed here on the boards, the RVA Dis Meet website and the RVA FB page. This number is correct.

I had to split up the tickets for adults and children. I had to estimate, so Eventbrite ticket count may be off. Depending on how many children are registered there may be extra adult tickets. I will keep you informed.

Thank you.

    Ok...this may sound silly, but can someone explain Dis Meets to me??? My BF and I are huge Disney fans and we love listening to Pete and the gang on the Dis podcasts. We keep hearing them talk about Dis Meets but don't really understand what they are. We live in Northern Virginia so Richmond would be an easy one for us to attend!

    It is not a silly question. Dis is short for Disney. Those listening to the Dis Unplugged call themselves Disers. A Meet is a get together to meet other Disers or Disney fans.

    So Dis = Disney and Meet = get together.

    When Pete challenged the Dis Unplugged listeners to raise money for Give Kids the World, a Meet was started in, I believe, Indiana. This Meet allowed those posting on the Dis Boards to meet one another. Other Disers in other states soon followed. Some Meets are weekend events and some are just a one day event. No matter the length of the Meet the main purpose is to meet other Disney fans, to have, hopefully, some fun and to help raise money for GKTW.

    I hope this answers your question. Any other question, please just let me know. I hope you can join us.

    As Melissa said, DIS meets are combination social and fundraising gatherings. Exactly what happens at one varies from place to place based on the venue and the resources and imagination of those planning the event, but basically there is usually some type of main event with food, perhaps some activity like trivia or human bingo or something like that, raffles and silent and/or live auction to help raise money, and most have also included a live podcast recording. Other activities could be things like bowling, a special viewing of a Disney movie, an ice cream party, a comedy show, the list is endless. The organizers of these events have been very creative.

    I've been to the last 2 NJ meets and the 2013 DE meet (we missed 2014 due to a conflict) and they're a lot of fun. I wish we could do Richmond but probably can't which is a shame because we recently returned from a week-long vacation there and had a great time. Richmond is a fun town with lots of great sights and terrific restaurants (Sticky Rice was our favorite :)).

    Good luck to the team putting this meet together.

    Hi, all! Just saw this, and live in Bon Air (North Chesterfield) and work in Richmond. I know I would love to go, and my sisters would, too, I'm sure. We are always planning/dreaming of Disney.

    Grew up in Florida, so many trips to Disney World.

    I'll get my tickets asap.!

    Melissa, are you expecting the podcast team to be there?
    Hi Steve:

    I am not sure yet. I have not heard from the podcast team. When I find out I will post it here on the boards, on the website, and on the FB page.

    I think we live in the same general area. I guess we will find out. If you have any questions, please let me know.

    This sounds interesting. I live in Chester, so the location is very convenient for me. I'm just not sure if we'll be in town. I feel like I have something scheduled that weekend but can't remember what it is.

    I don't see where I can get tickets. My computer is old. Any admission price for the ticket and/or main event on Saturday?

    In the first post there is a link for sign up/registration or you can just type rvadismeet.net. At the top of the website their links for the schedule, registration/tickets, and t-shirt (if you so desire). There is a registration fee that covers lunch, hotel service fee and a small donation to GKTW.

    The codes to sign in for Eventbrite is also in the first post.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know either here or you can email me at rvadismeet@outlook.com

    Hi Melissa,

    I am hoping to make the meet. We moved to Mechanicsville almost 3 years ago and have never been to a Dis Meet before. I am trying to talk DH into joining me, but he is not quite as Disney obsessed as I am. If he balks I may just fly solo for the day. :)
