Think Disney’s just for families? Think again. Disney Meetings offers unique and engaging ways to create formal training and informal networking events to ensure any meeting’s success — with imagination, creative vision and characters that are only part of the Magic Kingdom.
During AIBTM 2014 held in Orlando, Anita Goodstory (receptionist) and the Disney Meetings team provided a brief overview of the meetings experience while the Disney’s fab 5 — Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto — setup the GM Test Track corporate lounge at Epcot with music and dinner. And the room provides a wall of windows and a direct view of Spaceship Earth, the iconic symbol of Epcot.
While our group was roughly 35, the space can be used to host events up to 120 guests.
Menu highlights during the event included:
- Pasta with baby arugula, artichokes, portobello mushrooms and eggplant
- Shrimp with chorizo, tomato and okra
- Carved to order: pork tenderloin, beef tenderloin
- Cooked to order: chicken breast, lamb chops, corvina filet
- Naan bread with Raita
Disney is also known its ability to address speciality dietary requests.
As part of an evening event, your can be taken to a VIP spot where they’ll watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks display from a private outdoor view.
It’s also important to highlight that Disney offers special VIP access to quickly arrive at the GM Test Track and to be moved throughout the property.
