ATTIRE
Business Casual clothing is suitable for the entire event with Business Dressy for the Banquet. However, some evening meals and functions that you choose to attend in Walt Disney World Parks and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort at your leisure may require more appropriate clothing, including perhaps a dinner jacket. Also, we recommend you dress in layers as hotel meeting rooms tend to be too hot for some, while others are quite chilly. Bringing along a jacket or sweater can come in handy.

For Men: Business Casual is appropriate: pants or slacks, and polo-type or collared shirts
For Ladies: Business Casual is appropriate: pants or slacks, skirts, blouses, dresses
Presidents Reception – Business Casual or Cocktail Attire
 
Awards Banquet – Resort Casual Attire:
For Men: Polo style shirts or button up tops and linen or casual slacks.
