The expansion will add 25,000 square feet to the convention center, bringing the total space to 100,000 square feet.
The construction project also includes the addition of more parking spaces across Epcot Resort Boulevard. The expansion of the convention center will take up an area of the current parking lot.
This expansion project is slated to start in November and be completed in the spring of 2018.
Each year the Yacht and Beach Club convention area hosts groups and events in the convention space. Other Walt Disney World Resort hotels with convention space include the Contemporary and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts opened 25 years ago and are Epcot-area deluxe hotels.
