Transportation from the Airport

There are several shuttle, taxi, and rental car options from the Orlando International Airport.  As of 2022, Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be operating from MCO to Disney World. If Disney releases any additional options, we will be sure to update you.


Your conference registration will include a 5:00 pm entrance to Epcot on Wednesday night for you to explore the many rides, pavilions, and magic on your own. Epcot tips and recommendations will be shared closer to the event.


Join us at 8:00 pm on the private patio in the French pavilion, Isle de France, where we’ll have complementary drinks and dessert. Stick around to watch the nighttime fireworks spectacular with us at 9:00 pm.


Guest tickets are available to purchase.

Extended Stays

If you’re planning to add to the magic by adding days before or after the conference, be sure to reserve your rooms as soon as possible to secure the significantly discounted room rates.


Don’t forget, Disney offers discounted park tickets for conference attendees. You can purchase these tickets on the Carnegie Conference Disney page by clicking “Buy Tickets” in the top right.
