Last fall, we announced the grand opening of the convention center expansion at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort. Listed as one of the  most notable Central Florida Venue Opening of 2018 by BizBash, this expansion is just one of the ways we are making exciting investments in our meetings business at Walt Disney World Resort. 

Let’s take a look at the newest space designed to elevate the meeting and event experience: 

The convention center expansion provides an additional 28,000 square feet, offering planners nearly 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space at this exceptional Walt Disney World Resort location. Attendees will enter through the Newport Lobby & Gallery, which has three pre-function areas and two distinct gathering rotundas for networking.

The new 16,000-square-foot Newport Ballroom is divisible into eight dynamic breakouts. This versatile space is ideal for general sessions, meetings, ceremonies, networking events, and celebrations, making it a flexible location to meet any group’s needs.
