Did you know that your discounted convention hotel rates are good for three days prior to General Assembly 2013 and three days after the assembly? Might make for good family time! Disciple Roda Grubb of McAllen, Texas, did a story in 2010 for The Valley Town Crier on non-theme park activities in the area. And we have some theme park discounts if that is a part of your vacation planning. Check back for updates.
Physical address of the west concourse of the convention center: 9800 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
When booking your flights, go to Orlando International (MCO).
Hotel reservations are open online. You will find a link to the hotels' reservation system upon completion of your registration for General Assembly. You can take a look at those adjacent to the convention center that are offering rooms for General Assembly 2013.
To help with the costs of bringing speakers to the General Assembly, you can help earn frequent flyer miles throughout the year by referencing the Disciples number on Delta (US0012674) or American Airlines (832306). You will still be able to earn your own miles as you earn miles for General Assembly!
