Dine Around has been a big hit. These are “no host” dinners at local restaurants with the table coordinated by a judge. Varied cuisines and price points at Disney Springs (downtown Disney outside of the parks) or a quick Uber ride from the hotel are planned. The hotel’s optional Resort Fee includes the hotel shuttle bus service to Disney Springs. Read the resort fee information carefully to know how to sing up for a shuttle and to decide when or if you want to pay the resort fee.
Watch for the August email to those registered for the conference, announcing that sign up is open, reply, and save your spot. It’s a great way to network, make new friends and have dinner, especially if you are a solo attendee or first time NCBJ’er. Dine Around dinners will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. These fill quickly once announced, so don’t delay your sign up.
