From location and accessibility, to budget and resources, nothing is more important to a planner than delivering a meeting experience that exceeds expectations. As part of Disney's commitment to creat- ing exceptional meetings and events, we are providing planners with even more resources to deliver on their goals by expanding the con- vention center and renovating the guest rooms at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort. The convention center expansion of 28,000 square feet will offer planners nearly 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space at this premier Walt Disney World Resort location. In addition, Disney's Coronado Springs Re- sort, one of the largest single-level convention hotels on the east coast, is expanding over the next year, adding new dining options, resort rooms, and outdoor networking spaces. As part of the expansion, construction is underway on a new 15-story tower with views overlooking beautiful Lago Dorado, the resort's centerpiece lake. The new tower will bring an additional 500 rooms to the resort as well as new meeting venues to the resort's current 220,000 square feet of dedicated meeting and function space. The expansions at our Convention Resort Hotels are just a couple of the exciting new options available to planners and attendees at Walt Disney World Resort.
