This upcoming weekend–February 4 – 5–, The Walt Disney World Resort will host The Federalist Society’s Eighth Annual Florida Chapters Conference.
The Conservative Libertarian non-profit booked their event at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and is set to feature Supreme Court Justice, Hon. Neil M. Gorsuch, Former Vice President, Hon. Mike Pence, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
For those thinking of attending, the event is completely sold out, and a waiting list is available. Sponsors include Miami Lawyers Chapter, Broward County Lawyers Chapter, Tallahassee Lawyers Chapter, Palm Beach Lawyers Chapter, Jacksonville Lawyers Chapter, Polk County Lawyers Chapter, Sarasota Lawyers Chapter, Emerald Coast Chapter, Tampa Bay Lawyers Chapter, Southwest Florida Lawyers Chapter, Orlando Lawyers Chapter, and Florida Young Lawyers Chapter.
The Federalist Society’s conference is just the latest example of Disney’s long history of featuring political figures and events. One of the most famous examples was President Richard Nixon giving his “I am not a crook” speech in one of the conference rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
It should be noted, however, that while Disney World plays host to a variety of political events, it does not specifically endorse any that may or may not conflict with the company’s beliefs and values.
However, through attractions such as The Hall of Presidents and America The Beautiful, Disneyland and Walt Disney World constantly work in their own ways to inspire the next generation of American dreamers looking to build a better tomorrow.
Guests looking to stay at or visit Disney’s EPCOT Resort Area Hotel should be mindful of this event, especially in terms of crowd and dining reservation expectations.
More on The Federalist Society
The Federalist Society defines itself as the following:
Founded in 1982, the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order. We are committed to the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Society seeks to promote awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
