We’re thrilled to be spending our 2023 Coastal Magic at the gorgeous Wyndham-Orlando Resort International Drive. Our room block for registered attendees will be available until January 31st. You will receive a dedicated link when you complete your registration. If you’ll be staying on site with us, please reserve your room by this date to guarantee our discount. After this date, rooms will still be available, but we cannot guarantee a discount. (Rooms are very reasonable, though, even without our discount. 🙂 )
Hurricanes Ian and Nicole postponed our return to Daytona and The Plaza Resort & Spa. Unfortunately, they’ll be closed for a year to repair/remodel after the storms. We’re looking forward to all they”ll have to offer for our 2024 event!
