While we have quite a few rooms in our room block, they are already 50% reserved and will go quickly since we're in the new year. If you reserve your room and find you can't attend, you can always cancel and get your deposit back as long as you cancel 72 hours out from the reservation. To reserve your room, you must call the Disney conference reservations line at 407-939-1020.
