Swan and Dolphin Resort - the New RWA site!

Whew! I was so nervous when I heard that the Opryland Hotel had flooded and they were going to have to cancel the RWA conference for this summer. I was worried that RWA might not be able to find a new location. We are, after all, talking about thousands of people and some very specific needs. At the conference, there are over a dozen workshops taking place at any given time, so there needs to be at least that many meeting rooms available. Also, there have to be enough rooms with two doubles or two queen size beds to accommodate the group. Not to mention the dinners where they need to be able to seat and feed 3,000 people in the same room. Yikes! Not an easy task to find a hotel that can do all that and actually be available for the exact dates of the conference this July. Somehow, though, maybe thanks to a downturned economy, the RWA was able to do it.
So our new location is the Swan and Dolphin Resort at Disneyworld in Orlando!! Yipppeee!! I am so excited! They really could have moved it just about anywhere and I would be excited just to still be going. It's worked out great for me since I booked Southwest Airlines. They don't charge a fee to change my tickets, so I was able to book a new flight to Orlando and only pay the difference in airfare - which luckily was a mere $4! I am excited about the new hotel also. It looks fun and beautiful.

Now if I could just finish this novel....

Aside from enjoying the the amenities of the resort, you can also visit Disney's Hollywood Studios or enjoy the rides in Disneyland since it's also quite near. Have you gone to Disneyland too? Anyway, this hotel has quite the unique architectural design. It seems inspired by Noveau buildings found in Amsterdam and Cuba. Well, goodluck with your novels! :-)
