At Disney Meetings, our team creates special events and private parties that are just as dynamic as the venues that host them. No matter what the occasion, our event designers 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.

For planners wishing to transform a meeting or event space, there are infinite possibilities to create a truly unforgettable experience with a Disney venue. Providing a plush, versatile environment for banquets, receptions or large meetings, the elegant Grand Ballroom can accommodate more than 1,900 attendees in 18,000 square feet of space, which makes it the ideal setting for a formal and refined event. Let’s take a look at just a few of the ways the Grand Ballroom at Disneyland Hotel can accommodate distinctly different themes and décor:

Under the Sea Gala

With vivid flower arrangements, sea shells, giant floating jellyfish, and coral sculptures, attendees will enter the ballroom and feel whisked away on an undersea adventure with this stunning ocean concept. Tables vary by turquoise iridescent and sand-colored satin linens, creating a sense of island flair. Each table is graced by a colorful flower arrangement featuring a starfish for added ocean whimsy and delight.

Wonders of Asia Event

This exquisite event concept features a harmonious blend of artistic designs and artifacts to transform the ballroom into a stunning space inspired by Chinese and Japanese cultures. Originally designed for an organization expanding its business into Asia, this concept can be modified for any meeting or event. The vibrant floral and fan arrangements, intriguing wall projections, and awe-inspiring stage backdrop are the perfect touches to this sophisticated event. 

An Enchanting Garden Awards Dinner

The fusion of vintage and natural themes are evident throughout this ballroom décor concept. Merging the elegance of grand chandeliers and gorgeous floral arrangements with the simplicity of wood accent features and tea light candles not only brings a certain eccentricity to the event, but also captures and holds the attention of everyone in the ballroom. 

There are infinite possibilities when it comes to creatively transforming one ballroom setting to accommodate your group’s needs when you #MeetAtDisney. Meeting and event planners have the ability to adjust and arrange elements to fit their theme, timeline, and budget, all while keeping attendees engaged and excited. Various elements of food and beverage, décor, and entertainment can be tailored to the group’s preferences.
