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 you’re 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 mosaic–we 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. Don’t forget to sign up at 
<http://www.nfb.org/gwr>www.nfb.org/gwr and 
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
