World Convention

WCNA 37 – The Magic Is Still Real 

30 August through 2 September 2018
Orlando, FL, USA

Pre-registration for WCNA 37 opens at 10 am Pacific on Monday, 25 September!

In addition to helping us better plan WCNA, here’s another incentive for pre-registering: All members who pre-register by 31 July 2018 (without cancellation) will be entered in a drawing for two (2) full convention packages, including registration and all WCNA special event tickets! (Does not include pre-reg merchandise)

While we realize many people are accustomed to booking rooms on their own, it really helps WCNA when you book rooms in our room block. Here is some encouragement to pre-register and book rooms in our room block: If you pre-register and book your hotel in the WCNA room block by 31 July 2018 (without cancellation), you will be entered into a drawing for a FREE, THREE-NIGHT STAY! We will randomly select two pre-registrants and cover their room and tax charges for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of WCNA.

We are excited about the entertainment we have lined up for this convention. All of the details have not been worked out on some of the entertainment special events, which is not unusual for a World Convention.  We will add information about the events as they become finalized. You need not wait to register. Special event seating assignments are determined by the date of pre-registration. This means that the location of your seat for ticketed events is driven by the registration date, not by the date you purchase the tickets. The key to getting the best seats is to register early.

The Orlando Convention & Visitors Bureau is creating a webpage highlighting local attractions and restaurants in Orlando (Disneyland, Universal Studios, Sea World etc.) as well as other information about the city. We will post that link as soon as it is available.
