Hi, all! I'm super close to the city and would love a chance to meet up with fellow Disney nerds. Are there any really big Disney stores around, with restaurants near by? (I miss Oak Brook's.) Could be a fun idea for a meet up.
Hi! I also miss the Disney store at Oakbrook mall! Now I only know of the one on Michigan Ave. and the Disney outlet store at the Chicago Premium Outlets in Aurora. The outlet mall is a lot of fun because they have so many stores (so it's fun for a shopaholic like me), they also have a few different restaurants. That could work- to meet up at the Disney store there and then eat/shop around if anyone's up for it.

I always forget about the Michigan Avenue one! I always hit Block 37's on State Street since it's so close to the trains. And anthropologie. ;) I think I could get myself to Aurora, though, if that worked for others. The new ornaments should be out soon, right?

I live in the city. I think the Block 37 store is the better of the 2 in the city, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars right around there. There's also a Disney outlet in the Rosemont Premium Outlets mall.

I'd be game for a Chicago DVC meet & greet

    Let's do it! Anyone up for it at the end of this month, or would October work better?

    I don't know about the ornaments. Like ones that are released by the Disney Store, or do you mean the Hallmark ones?

    With a little notice I should be available for end of this month or October, either can work if I have a little time to plan. I'm also open to downtown or burbs. I can take the train into the city so that's not too bad. I'm going to look up Block 37 because I haven't heard of that before.

    No we haven't met up yet. The weather is not good now, might have to wait until it's warmer again. (Like April...LOL!) I really don't know where we should meet up. I'm by O'Hare, so the Northwest Burbs would work for me. Going into Chicago (downtown) would work on a Sat. or Sunday too. Would meeting at a restaurant be good, or a restaurant inside a store?

    i live downtown, but am out in the northwest suburbs quite a bit. I'm in for whenever. Townhouse Restaurant and Winebar have happy hour specials M-F. That's on Wacker and Monroe close to both Union and Olgilvy. There's a bunch of places around Woodfield... Westwood, Zeal, etc... or there's quite a large Starbucks at Streets of Woodfield

    I'm in the south burbs but happy to go north for a meetup. Woodfield works for me, or downtown, and food is always good!
