> Dear Colleagues,  I am happy to report that we have successfully concluded our search for a replacement for the now defunct Hyatt Orlando, and managed to get us a even better deal than we had to begin with.  We are now in the process of signing final contracts for our March 14-19, 2004 week with the Hilton WDW Resort, a 4-Diamond Disney Resort inside the WDW Park Preserve, directly adjoining all of the Downtown Disney Attractions (e.g. walking distance to the  Marketplace, Pleasure Island, West Side, etc.) and providing continuous free shuttle services to all of the Disney Theme Parks.

They have even offered us a super deal for high-speed networks services for the week, so at a rate of $135/night S/D with all of our usual concessions and upgrades this is truly a Best-Buy for high season in Orlando.  We were very lucky that we found such a property with this kind of space for our exact week, but that did give us some additional negotiation leverage to get such an excellent deal.
