Local Host Letter & Discounts

Welcome to Orlando! As you settle in at ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2019, I hope you’ll take time outside the meeting to explore the city and all it has to offer. Time away from work is rare and highly valued, and the location of this year’s meeting will give you the best of both worlds—furthering your practice, and spending time with your family. Here are my top five must-do’s in Orlando, whether you’re here with family or traveling solo.

Discover the magic of Walt Disney World Resort
Meeting Disney characters and spiking your adrenaline make this theme park a fun spot for kids and adults alike. Purchase discounted park tickets to Disney World, Universal and Sea World when visiting during the week of October 18 – 22, 2019; many of the hotels offer shuttle services to and from the Orlando area theme parks. 

Tour the Kennedy Space Center
See the retired space shuttles and learn about man’s greatest missions—to the stars and beyond.

Relax at Cocoa Beach
You can’t go wrong with sun, sand and a cold drink at one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.

Explore Blue Spring State Park
Meet the manatees in their natural habitat at this state park.

Expand your dining experience
Whether you’re a seafood connoisseur, dining with family or simply looking to try something new, the variety of restaurants along Highway 4 will have something for everyone.

Orlando welcomes millions of visitors each year with guests hailing from all corners of the world. It’s an excellent location for a meeting of this caliber and one that attracts a diverse, global audience and I am excited for you to enjoy the warm, sunny city of Orlando during your stay.
