Here at Disney Meetings & Events, our talented cast of professionals strive to create unforgettable experiences for our clients every day. Meeting planners are looking for a destination that is able to cater to the need for serious business, as well as the attendees’ appetite for serious fun. Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts resides at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort, and Justin Plank, Resort Sales Director, is here to share how you can make the most of your stay at this expansive destination.
1. Enjoy easy access to premiere entertainment
“We are constantly creating new and exciting opportunities for our clients to tell the story of their company with the storytelling only found at Disney. The best part of my role is being able to discover a client’s needs and then empowering my team to deliver the amazing customer service that Disney is known for.” When asked about Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts, he said “This resort is unique because it is located just a short walk away from a variety of nightlife and entertainment offerings. You can spend your morning listening to an empowering keynote presentation, and then stroll to Epcot for an afternoon filled with fun. One of my personal favorite events is our Epcot dessert reception. Enjoying a dazzling fireworks spectacular is a great way to send attendees off with everlasting memories! ”
2. Take advantage of pre-arrival planning
“The best piece of advice I would give is to utilize the My Disney Experience app” Justin described when asked what convention attendees can do to make the most of their stay. “The app is especially great if you plan to extend your stay before or after your convention to enjoy time in the parks with family and friends. Order MagicBands, make Disney FastPass+ selections, secure dining reservations and more to get a great head start on your experience!”
3. Treat yourself to upscale dining options
“The Ale & Compass Restaurant is a dining venue I always recommend for attendees to enjoy. Our Disney chefs have created a delicious menu, combining classic New England flavors with tried and true comfort foods.” Justin notes convenience and quality as two of the top priorities for attendees, and further elaborates with “Whether you are relaxing in the lounge, having dinner with family, or enjoying a private dining experience, Ale & Compass has something for everyone.”
