special section Resorts Disney Destinations Unique combination of attributes yields more meeting value
Meetings at the Disneyland Resort in Cali- fornia and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida benefit from a special set of quali- ties that make up the “Disney Advantage”
— unmatched creative resources, imagina- tive settings, and attention to detail. These advantages let groups realize more value and bottom-line savings than they might expect. Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
accommodates groups of virtually every size and budget with six award-winning convention hotels collectively offering more than 5,000 guest rooms and 600,000-plus square feet of meeting space. Disney’s Coro- nado Springs Convention Center’s 220,000 square feet of contiguous function space contains one of the largest hotel ballrooms in the Southeast at 60,000 square feet, an 86,000-square-foot exhibition hall, plus generous prefunction areas and 45 breakout rooms. With a wide variety of on-site recre-
ational activities including two water parks, European-style spas, tennis courts, champi- onship golf, and shopping, Walt Disney World Resort offers meeting attendees an endless list of diversions that they never have to leave the park to experience. In Southern California, Disneyland
Resort’s three hotels give planners more than 178,000 square feet of flexible meeting space to work with, along with 2,200 guest rooms. The resort also features the only two AAA Four-Diamond hotels in Anaheim — Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and the Dis- neyland Hotel, the latter having been recently re-imagined with a brand-new look that com- bines mid-century cool and modern luxury. Every meeting at Disney Destinations can
benefit from the creative talents of the Disney Event Group, an on-site team of experts who produce unforgettable meeting experiences. The group can assist with everything from
concept development to staging, scripting, entertainment, themed décor, photography, and audiovisual services. And at the world- renowned Disney Institute, attendees can get an inside peek at the business behind the magic through the institute’s keynote speak- ers, workshops, team-building activities, and behind-the-scenes tours focusing on an array of topics from leadership excellence to orga- nizational creativity. Whether meeting planners choose to
meet in California or Florida, the Disney Advantage gives them a unique combina- tion of creative programs, products, and services that will take their event above and beyond any other, with the only limit being their imagination.
