At Disney Meetings, we take classic stories and create powerful and unforgettable experiences for your attendees. Whether it’s a Swashbuckling Soirée or a Wonderland Reception, we are constantly looking for the latest and greatest ways to provide incredible meeting and event experiences. Our event designers can craft an immersive, customized event that will provide a greater return on your investment.

Start your engines because today we are sharing one of our latest featured event themes: Route 66 Gala.

At the Disneyland Resort, events in the hotel ballrooms often pay tribute to the experiences found at Disney Parks and Resorts. One example of this was when the team at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa transformed the Sequoia Ballroom into a Disney•Pixar's Cars-themed extravaganza.

Upon entering the venue, attendees embarked on a road trip experience inspired by Cars Land at Disney California Adventure! While strolling down Route 66, guests came across stacked tires, vibrant orange cones, checkerboard flags and unique road signs, which were customized to fit the organization’s key messages and meeting theme.

Low on fuel? Attendees cruised on up to the gas station-themed bar while enjoying a customized menu of refreshing beverages including sparkling wines, beer and entertaining cocktails such as “route” beer floats and high-octane limeade. 

The fun kicked into over drive with a themed game station featuring a ring toss game using orange construction cones. A disc jockey pumped up the celebration by providing a wide variety of music for attendees from top-40 hits to classic rock n’ roll. 

Take a look at life in the fast lane with the Route 66 Gala!

Available for groups of all sizes, this customizable experience can be held at many Disney event venues. This featured event theme gives meeting and event planners the ability to adjust and arrange elements to fit their location, timeline and budget, all while keeping attendees engaged and excited. Various elements of food and beverage, décor, and entertainment can be tailored to the group’s preferences.
