The Family Café invites you to join us for The 20th Anniversary Family Café on June 15-17, 2018 in Orlando, Florida! Since 1998, The Annual Family Café has brought Floridians with all types of disabilities together for three days of information, training and networking opportunities each June. With a great range of individual breakout sessions, a packed Exhibit Hall with dozens of vendors, and a series of special events including Keynote speakers and The Governors’ Summit on Disabilities, The Annual Family Café offers families exposure to a range of public and private resources on a grand scale, opportunities to find support by networking with other families, and unprecedented access to policy-making officials.

The Family Café does everything it can to connect its attendees with the resources it offers at the lowest cost possible.
The Annual Family Café remains a free event, with no registration cost for people with disabilities and their families.
Only those attending in a professional capacity are asked to pay a $150 registration fee.

The Family Café is also proud to offer families limited Financial Assistance, which can provide for complimentary accommodations at the host hotel. At this time, all available Financial Assistance has been distributed by lottery.

This year’s 20th Anniversary Family Café will be held at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, 9801 International Drive. The Family Café has negotiated a special conference rate of $119 per night for rooms in The Family Café block.

To make a reservation, contact the Hyatt Regency Orlando at 1-888-421-1442 and refer to The 20th Anniversary Family Café.

If you receive Financial Assistance, your room reservation will be made by The Family Café. If you do not receive Financial Assistance, you will be responsible for making your own reservations at the Hyatt Regency Orlando or elsewhere in Orlando. Again, you can contact the hotel reservation line at 1-888-421-1442 to reserve a room in The Family Café block.

The Family Café and its Planning Committee are hard at work planning a fantastic event that is sure to engage you and your family, while providing you with useful information and access to all manner of resources. We hope you can join us this June in Orlando for another serving of Collaboration, Advocacy, Friendship and Empowerment!
