The Hilton in the Walt Disney World Resort is our official 2003 SIOP Conference hotel.  Most of our meetings will be held at the Hilton, but the hotel is not large enough to accommodate all of our meeting needs, so we also will be holding about 1/3 of our conference sessions at the nearby Hotel Royal Plaza.  (See the map of the Lake Buena Vista resort area and Downtown Disney at  http://www.downtowndisneyhotels.com/mappg.html.)  The distance between the two hotels is approximately mile.  For those of you who attended the 1996 or 2001 SIOP Conference in San Diego, the distance between the Hilton and Royal Plaza is about the same as the distance between the two towers of the Sheraton at Harbor Island.  Shuttle service between the two hotels will be provided.

We have arranged large blocks of sleeping rooms at each hotel.  The SIOP conference is during the height of April tourist season.  Our conference rates are very competitive for quality resort hotels in Orlando.  Both the Hilton and the Royal Plaza require a one-night room deposit which is non-refundable in the event that your reservation is cancelled less than 90 days prior to the beginning of your scheduled stay.  (Click here for more information about the room deposit.)  Here is a brief description of the services and amenities available at the Hilton and Royal Plaza to guide you in making your reservations.  

When making reservations, be sure to ask the hotel to confirm the last date that you will be able to cancel without a penalty!
