Once again the American Camp Association (ACA) will hold the National ACA Camp Conference February 17-20, 2009 at the Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World (WDW). As a very frequent traveler to WDW, here are my favorite resources for camp directors attending the conference.
The Conference Hotel – Coronado Springs Resort: Listen to a discussion on the podcast WDW Today Episode 477 – Coronado Springs….A Review. Many who attend and review WDW hotels do not like Coronado Springs. This is in part because it is a convention hotel and less of a Disney resort. One of the big criticisms is the size and layout of the resort. If your room is far from the convention center, it can easily take you a 10-15 minutes to walk to and from your room. Personally, I like the resort. This is in part because I have stayed there so many times and I know my way around. I also purchased a Coronado Refillable mug about eight years ago and feel like I really have a great ROI each time I go back.
