Since 1998, The Annual Family Café has brought Floridians with all types of disabilities together for three days of information, training, and networking 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 attendees exposure to resources on a grand scale, unprecedented access to policy-making officials, and a chance to network with other individuals with disabilities and their families.

There is no registration fee for individuals with disabilities and their families, and limited Financial Assistance is available to cover the cost of your hotel stay at the host site, the Hyatt Regency Orlando. To apply for Financial Assistance, simply check the box on the registration form. Financial Assistance is determined by lottery.

What about the App?

The Family Cafe offers a smartphone event app that includes all of the information in the program, as well as additional features to help you navigate The Annual Family Cafe. We are currently working on this year’s app, and it will be available shortly after the program.

If you already have The Family Cafe app on your phone from last year, there’s nothing to download. It will automatically update for 2024.
