Q: When staying at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort is there an additional entrance fee for the park required (especially when leaving multiple times for any reason)?
A: Yes, Disney does charge for you to enter the Park (any / all). We have arranged for discounted passes on the website so you can book in advance. They also offer “after hours” passes to use in the evening. You can buy passes for specific parks OR you can buy an “park hopper” which allows you access to any park. You can purchase them in advance or onsite at the Contemporary or any Disney property you will stay at.
Q: When staying at any hotel outside the Disney Resort do I need an entrance fee for the resort to attend the conference in a daily manner?
A: No, access to the meeting venue does not require an entrance fee. But they will charge for parking. We have arranged with Disney that our guests can book ANY hotel within Disney and the Conference will get credit for the reservation. So, we encourage you to find a Disney property in your price range. Disney has a fantastic transportation system that will get you from the Disney property you chose to the Contemporary (and any/all parks at Disney) at no cost either via Monorail, Bus, water taxi. This will also allow you to use the Disney Express, which is the free transportation from the Airport to any Disney Property with a hotel reservation. This will save you about $75 in taxi fare one way (with tip).
