Extending your stay

The link at the bottom of this page enables SBE members to reserve a room only for the length of our conference—August 8-12. However, SBE members may extend their stay—at our conference rate ($199/night)—for up to three days prior to the night of August 8/9th and for up to three days after the night of August 11/12th, based on availability of rooms.

How to have an extended visit

Call Disney Reservations directly at 407-939-4686—M-F, 8:30am-6:00pm, and Sa-Su, 8:30am-5:00pm, Eastern Time.  (In other words, don’t use the web link below; rather, call reservations directly.)

Please note:  Walt Disney World® is a very popular destination, and the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is their flagship hotel.  Therefore, if you want to extend your stay, you need to do so soon.×

Getting to and from the airport

Walt Disney World® provides complimentary transportation service for its hotel guests from the Orlando International Airport!  It’s called “Disney’s Magical Express.”  You will be delivered to the doorstep of our hotel—the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa—and your luggage will be delivered directly to your room. All for free!

How to book

Once you have your room confirmation number, you can either call (407-827-6777) or use their online registration form at https://www.disneyconventiontickets.com/disneyworld/transportation/magical-express/. At the airport, you simply go to Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center located on Level One in Terminal B, and the folks at the Center take over from there.

Please note:  You must book in advance.  You cannot make these arrangements from the airport.  (It is recommended you book as soon as possible; however, you can do so up to 24 hours prior to your arrival.)×
