At Disney, our team can craft a customized experience tailored to a group’s specific message or objective—all by combining our passion for creating immersive experiences with our expertise in rich storytelling. Now, we’re giving you an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at how Disney can bring your group’s story to life by following the planning adventures of Kyla Heap, Marketing and Communications Manager for Fringe Benefits Management Company (FBMC). 

Every year, Kyla works with the Disney team to deliver extraordinary meetings and events for her organization at Walt Disney World Resort. From hosting the culminating event inside the Festival of the Lion King at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, to the Living Seas Salon at Epcot, Kyla’s goal is to deliver her organization’s message in an engaging and exciting way that leaves her attendees with a truly unforgettable experience.  

This year, Kyla wanted to go above and beyond to impress her attendees, elevate their experience, and convey her group’s message about embarking on a new adventure for the company. This message inspired the Disney team to brainstorm the perfect concept for her group: an Adventure-themed event inside the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! 

During the initial planning session, Kyla met with Disney Event Consultant Jaclyn Dorsch to discuss all the elements to bring her event to life. “When an event planner like Kyla comes to us for an annual event, the areas that we help her with are custom menus, floral, décor, entertainment, and Theme Park venues – things that are unique to Disney,” said Dorsch. 

Kyla also met with Disney Show Director Ken Malquist, who collaborated with the creative content team to tie the theme together using all the available resources. Malquist explained, “We’re uniquely qualified here at Disney to make something really special for their general session during the day, but also we can make that incredible Disney magic at night for their events.”

Explore how Kyla’s attendees will step into the world of Indiana Jones and become a part of the show during their event:

When you host your event at Walt Disney World Resort, your attendees will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience that allows meeting and event planners the ability to arrange elements to fit their group, timeline, and budget. The possibilities are endless when your attendees #MeetAtDisney.
