Hotels for Learning 2017
The primary hotel for Learning 2017 is Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. We have reserved a block of hotel rooms for participants at the rate of $175 per night plus taxes. The room rate is for single or double occupancy and includes complimentary access to the hotel’s health club and a meeting facility fee. You can reserve your room by calling Disney Group Reservations at (407) 939-4686.
To handle overflow demand, we have added an additional block of room at Disney’s stately Port Orleans Riverside Resort, just a short ride from the Learning 2017 convention center. The MASIE Center will provide transportation each morning and evening between Port Orleans and Coronado Springs for attendees who choose this hotel option. You can reserve your room by calling Disney Group Reservations at (407) 939-4686.
Note: Due to the high volume of calls, you may experience longer than normal wait times.
Note: Animal Kingdom rooms are now sold out, but you can still check with group reservations to see if any have become available due to cancellations.
We also have a few rooms in our block at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The rate for rooms at this deluxe resort hotel is $235 per night plus taxes. If you are interested in staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge, you will need to book your room by calling group reservations at 407-939-4686. There is no online option for this hotel. Please note that you will need to provide your own transportation between the Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Coronado Springs Convention Center.
Orlando International Airport (MCO) has several transportation options available so that you really do not need to rent a car. Taxis and town cars are always an option, but there is also Disney's Magical Express Service. This is a free shuttle service available to guest staying at a Disney hotel. Reservations are required in advance (after you have made your room reservation). Please go to https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/airport-transportation-reservation/?groups=y to book your reservation. If you do choose to have a car, there is complimentary parking at the Coronado Springs Resort and Convention Center.
