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 wanting to host a one-of-a-kind meeting or event in an out-of-the-box location, there are many unexpected venues available at our Disney convention hotels in Hawaii, California, and Florida. Today, we are excited to showcase three hidden gems located at Aulani, A Disney Resort & SpaDisney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort, and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. Introducing: Kipuka Courtyard, Brisa Courtyard, and Casitas Courtyard

Let’s explore what each of these picturesque venues have to offer: 

Kipuka Courtyard and Kipuka Lawn at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa

With 3,600 square feet of space in a semi-private area for your attendees to network and convene on a beautiful evening in Hawaii, it’s no wonder Kipuka Courtyard is one of our favorite outdoor venues! Situated next to the lush Kipuka Lawn and Aulani Convention Center, this outdoor space is able to accommodate up to 200 guests. Planners can host a reception in this captivating courtyard or lawn where attendees can embrace the scenic, tropical setting that makes this Hawaiian meeting destination so unique. 

Brisa Courtyard at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

Tucked away within Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Brisa Courtyard provides a tranquil setting where up to 200 attendees can meet and mingle under California's beautiful, blue skies and shading trees. This tri-sectional courtyard is perfect for a range of events, from intimate luncheons to grand dinner receptions. 

Casitas Courtyard at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

Located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, just outside of the convention center, Casitas Courtyard can be reserved anytime throughout the day as a dining, meeting, and networking space for attendees. This charming space clearly showcases the beautiful landscapes, architecture, culture and the excitement of Mexico and the American Southwest. An ideal location for the private event of your choosing, this venue accommodates approximately 25-400 guests for receptions and 25-200 guests for breakfast, lunch, or dinner buffets.

These completely customizable spaces give meeting and event planners the ability to adjust and arrange elements to fit their theme, timeline, and budget to keep attendees engaged and excited.
