We designed our convention to foster networking, therefore you will find the meal services to be more casual with less structured seating so attendees can mix and mingle.
There are several snack shops and restaurants in The Disneyland Hotel, offering all types of cuisine and dining options. The hotel is also a five minute to Downtown Disney, where there are plenty of dining options.
