Watercraft and bike rentals are offered. A jogging trail winds around the 15-acre lake. Complimentary Disney bus transportation is available between the Hotel and all Disney Theme Parks.

Corporate Suites may be reserved for hospitality events or entertaining, subject to availability.
For housing reservations, call Disney conference reservations directly at 407-939-1020. Be sure to say you are with the Children with Diabetes Friends for Life conference. The Children with Diabetes room block is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
You may also reserve a room, buy park tickets, make Disney Dining reservations, and arrange for free Disney Transporation from the Orlando Airport to the hotel online at www.disneyurl.com/Diabetes2013.
Please note that you are only in the CWD room block – and only have the perks of being in the room block - if you make reservations through the link or through this phone number (i.e., not through the Disney 800 number, or through a travel agent – they cannot access the CWD rooms).
