Do You Want to Stay and Play?

The EdcampMagic team has been working hard to create special opportunities for edcamp participants. Disney has offered us discounted rates for Disney's Port Orleans Riverside for EdcampMagic 2016. Several of the team, including myself, stayed here for last year's edcamp. One of the things I most enjoyed about my stay was the water boat access to Disney Springs, formerly called Downtown Disney. It was a great alternative to riding the busses! So, if you want to stay on Disney property and would like a little nicer place to stay than the value resorts, but without paying a lot more for it, check out the lodging information.
