Making the Most of Your Stay at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Written by  DRJ

Mixing business with pleasure has never been easier – or more exciting – than it will be at the Disaster Recovery Journal Spring World 2011 taking place March 27 - 30, at the Walt Disney World Resort. This year's event will be held at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, which celebrates the character and traditions of the American Southwest and northern Mexico.

While Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is a destination unto itself, it's surrounded by all the rest of the fun and excitement that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. Hop aboard complimentary Disney transportation and travel to all points across the 40-square-mile resort. Explore the fun and fantasy of the Magic Kingdom Park. Travel the world in just a few hours at Epcot. Embark on an African safari at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Or experience movie-making magic, action and adventure at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

As a participant in the DRJ Spring World 2011, you can purchase special theme park tickets that are not available to the general public. Exclusive After 2 p.m. tickets and After 4 p.m. tickets are perfect ways to enjoy one of the parks after conference sessions. Or, if you're extending your stay, choose a multi-day meeting/convention ticket. These are available in two- to five-day increments and also include a visit to a Disney water park, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex or a round of golf on one of the championship Disney courses.

Save time and money by ordering your tickets in advance at http://www.mydisneymeetings.com/drj-corporate-site or by calling (407) 566-5600.
Beyond the theme parks, recreation options abound. Golf enthusiasts can follow in the footsteps of the game's great legends on courses that have been on the PGA Tour every year since 1971. Sparkling lakes and waterways offer water sports of all kinds. And for die-hard sports fans, the 220-acre ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is home to the best in amateur and professional sports competition.

Need a break after all that? Indulge in a relaxing treatment at one of two European-style spas.

When the sun goes down, the night heats up. Award-winning dining awaits…everything from restaurants by celebrity chefs to gourmet, five-diamond experiences. Staying at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort also means you can make dining reservations up to 180 days prior to your visit. To reserve a table, call 407-WDW-DINE (939-3463).

Disney theme parks offer their own brand of nighttime fun, but there's more to discover at Downtown Disney. You can thrill to the dazzling acrobatics and artistry of Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba and experience DisneyQuest, an indoor, interactive theme park. Or spend an evening exploring specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants.

Disney's BoardWalk offers a completely different kind of nighttime experience. It's a colorful promenade where you can sing along with the dueling pianos at Jellyrolls, catch a game at the ESPN Zone or try out your dancing shoes at Atlantic Dance Hall.

As you can see, the Walt Disney World Resort offers countless options when meetings are over. The special DRJ Spring World 2011 rate of $180 per night is available, should you choose to extend your stay before or after the conference. This rate is subject to availability, and we encourage you to book reservations as soon as possible. Simply visit http://www.mydisneymeetings.com/drj-corporate-site or call 407-824-3869.

Walt Disney World Resort Offers Complimentary Shuttle Service with a Dose of Magic

For many guests, the benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World owned-and-operated resort begins before arrival. And transportation has never been easier with the complimentary airport shuttle service, Disney's Magical Express.

This airport shuttle and luggage service is available to guests of all Disney-owned hotels. With Disney's Magical Express, you'll check your bags at your hometown airport. Upon arrival into Orlando International Airport, you bypass baggage claim at Orlando International Airport and simply board a special Disney-themed luxury motor coach to the Walt Disney World Resort. Your luggage will "magically" appear in your hotel room shortly after check-in.

The complimentary service also is available for your return. When it's time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary transportation back to OIA. An extra convenience: guests traveling on participating airlines can check their baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and luggage-toting at the airport.
