Cast Members Placed Their Mark on the New Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center Expansion

The construction of Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center at Walt Disney World Resort is well underway. Disney Cast Members recently had the opportunity to celebrate a major construction milestone with the signing of a support beam which was then lifted into the sky towards the new convention area structure.

“We are proud to be a part of this Disney tradition today and to celebrate the progress of this exciting new development,” said Morgan Palfreyman, Lead Project Manager. “This project has been a long time in the making. The next steps are putting the roof on so our team can work on the exterior finishes and interior finishes simultaneously.”

According to the Disney Meeting Blog, the 28,000-square-foot expansion of the convention center at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts will bring the total amount of flexible meeting and event space at this popular resort location to 100,000 square feet. The new convention area will boast a 16,000 square-foot ballroom that can be divided into eight dynamic breakout spaces. The expansion will also include three pre-function areas and two distinct gathering rotundas providing unique networking spaces for attendees to relax and reconnect.

“We look forward to seeing this project’s progression and The Walt Disney Company’s vision come to life for the future of meeting and convention attendees who meet in this new space,” said Project Manager Chad Schroeder.

The Yacht & Beach Club Convention Center expansion is just one of several exciting new enhancements being developed to accommodate meeting and event attendees. Other projects include Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World. The new convention center area at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts is set to open in 2018.
