Walt Disney World Conference Center


Walt Disney World Conference Center

 Opened in August of 1980 (some sources say it was actually in the spring of that year), the Walt Disney World Conference Center was located on the banks of Club Lake and was designed for small- and medium-sized business meetings.  This chalet-style building had four large rooms that could be broken down to a variety of configurations.  The largest breakout was 6,500 square feet and could seat 505 guests in theater-style seating.  The center had advanced technology for the time and could even handle television broadcasts.  Each of the rooms faced the lake and the lighting would automatically turn up if it got cloudy outside. The rooms in the Conference Center were named after trees (Sycamore, Magnolia, Jacaranda and Cypress) and birds (Sandpiper, Sea Gull and Blue Heron).  One specialty served at the Conference Center was Duck A La Pumpelmuse.  

 Meeting planners had the option of having themed entertainment with Disney characters and could organize special golf and tennis tournaments.  Since the Conference Center couldn't handle large convention crowds and trade shows, most large groups preferred to meet at newly constructed convention spaces at the Dolphin, Swan, Contemporary Resort and Grand Floridian.  The original Conference Center was later remodeled and became part of the Disney Institute (Now Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort).
