With more than 700,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space as well as six dedicated convention resorts, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is the premier meeting and convention destination. Home to four theme parks, a nighttime entertainment district, championship golf courses and world-class spas, the Resort gives meeting attendees a variety of entertainment and dining options to choose from.

Just a short walk from Epcot or a boat ride away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme parks, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort is a convention hotel with the formal grace of a grand New England-style yacht club. With a calming beach overlooking a picturesque waterway and nautical themed guest rooms, attendees will feel as though they have stepped inside a seaside community.

For meeting and convention groups, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort features 73,000 square feet of flexible meeting and function space, including the sparkling 38,000-square-foot Grand Harbor ballroom that’s perfect for meetings and events of up to 5,000 attendees. For smaller groups, Cape Cod Hall and Asbury Hall create a stunning backdrop of natural light for networking events and banquets. The convention space also includes breakout rooms and a boardroom, ideal for executive meetings.

And, just steps away from the convention center at the neighboring BoardWalk Entertainment District, meeting planners can also utilize the dynamic Atlantic Dance Hall, a multi-level 1920s-themed dinner hall, perfect for an awards dinner or special networking event.  

When it comes to overnight accommodations, 1,190 inviting guest rooms are available to immerse attendees into the world of a maritime-themed resort. Waterside balconies offer stunning views of the bay and lush gardens surrounding the resort. 

After a day of meetings, attendees can enjoy access to a wide variety of dining options. Crew’s Cup Lounge is perfect for light bites and cocktails while Yachtsman Steakhouse offers mouthwatering steaks, seafood and more for those in search of a traditional coastal city dinner. Just a quick stroll along the waterside path leads to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, where a bustling entertainment district awaits, boasting even more dining, shopping and nightlife options.

Centrally located in the Epcot Resort area, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort gives attendees easy access to Epcot via specially priced “After 2PM” or “After 4PM” Theme Park tickets.
