National Convention Shuttle Service
Free Shuttles between Rosen Centre, Rosen Plaza, and DoubleTree
The National Federation of the Blind will run
convenient shuttles between the Rosen Centre, the
Rosen Plaza, and the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando
at SeaWorld from July 5 through July 10 for our
seventy-fifth annual national convention. The
shuttles will operate throughout the day and into
the evening so that convention attendees will be
able to easily travel between the three
properties. While all convention meetings will be
held at either the Rosen Centre or the adjoining
Orlando Convention Center, some attendees were
unable to get a room at the Rosen Centre and will
be staying at either the Rosen Plaza or the
DoubleTree. The bus ride between each of the
properties is ten to fifteen minutes in duration.
It is possible to walk between the Rosen Centre
and the Rosen Plaza within about twenty minutes.
The Clarion Inn & Suites and the Red Roof Inn
near International Drive are a short walk to the
Rosen Centre, therefore bus service is not provided to these properties.
Bus service will typically run in a loop between
all three properties. The number of buses
increases at peak times. Occasionally, we will
run direct service between two properties.
Each morning, bus service begins at 7:30 a.m.
from the DoubleTree and 7:45 a.m. from the Rosen
Plaza. Buses will run continuously throughout the
day. The last bus will depart the Rosen Centre
with service to the DoubleTree and the Rosen Plaza at 11:00 p.m.
If youre worried about whether you can get to
the Rosen Centre early enough on Wednesday, July
8, to take part in our Guinness World Record
attempt for largest umbrella mosaicwe have you
covered. There will be early bus service starting
at 6:15 a.m. from the DoubleTree and 6:30 a.m.
from the Rosen Plaza that day to ensure
participants will be able to reach Rosen Centre
in time for the event. Dont forget to sign up at
receive updates as our attempt approaches!
Buses will also be coordinated to ensure members
can get back and forth for the banquet. On the
night of Friday, July 10, the last bus will
depart the Rosen Centre at 11:30 p.m.
At the Rosen Centre, buses are departing from the
Signature 1 exit located behind the escalators
on Level 1 of the hotel. These escalators are the
only escalators within the Rosen Centre property
and are just below the second floor walkway to the Orlando Convention Center.
The bus will depart the Rosen Plaza from the Club
39 entrance just off the main lobby.
The bus will depart the DoubleTree from the bus entrance.
There will be volunteers to help you at all of these locations.
Please note: The bus service is being organized
by the National Federation of the Blind, not the
hotel, so hotel staff may not be aware of these
details. If you have questions, please speak to a
volunteer at these locations. If you need any
further information, please contact Tracy
Soforenko at (202) 285-4595 or Brian McCann at (757) 472
