We can’t wait to see you in July! As you book your travel, here are some important tips! Learn more about the conference here!
There are three nearby airports.
- John Wayne/Orange County Airport (SNA), 14 miles
- Long Beach Airport (LGB), 21 miles
- Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), 34 miles
Due to traffic, it can take longer to arrive from LAX airport, but it is a larger airport with more direct flight arrivals.
There is parking onsite (valet/ self-park for an additional cost per day) if you would like to rent a car, but there are also many shuttles from all of the airports, including the Disneyland resort shuttle. More details about that shuttle here. Additional shuttles per Disney’s recommendations here.
We have 3 action packed days of learning for you- so stay all three days so you can maximize your conference learning & meet our special guest, Mickey Mouse!
Conference sessions will occur at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® in Anaheim, CA. Limited Rooms with Special Rates are available at Disneyland Resort Hotels: the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disneyland Resort for $219 and the Paradise Pier Hotel® (sold out) for $182. To book rooms or find more resort information, visit http://www.mydisneymeetings.com/gcyg16a/. The special rate is available for limited rooms and for a limited time.
For additional assistance, please call Ginny at (714) 520-5016 and mention our conference. Please contact our staff or Disney Team at the phone number listed with any questions.
During the conference, we will have an opportunity to see a light & water show in the park (no tickets needed). We do have specially priced park tickets available if you want to explore the park more! Check out our resident Disney park expert & YPC Leadership Team member, Kylie Semel, below for key tips!
What are the best days to have tickets? We end our programming on July 7th in time to use a twilight (or evening ticket). On July 9th, we end at noon- so if you can, take the weekend and explore the park!
Weather & Attire:
YPC event attire is casual to create a comfortable environment for all ages. Temperatures typically range with highs in mid-80’s and lows in 60’s in July in Anaheim. Conference spaces can have variable air conditioning or heating, so we suggest bringing layers like a sweater. We will have an evening event in the park at night- so bring clothes for a fun lights & water show! Don’t forget sunscreen if you’re visiting the park!
Meals: Registration includes plenty of snacks and the following meals on July 7: brunch; July 8: breakfast, lunch, dinner; July 9th: breakfast and lunch (conference concludes after lunch). Dinner is on your own July 7 so you can enjoy the park or Downtown Disney®.
