The 23rd Annual Family Café
June 11-13, 2021
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.
The 23rd Annual Family Cafe is scheduled for June 11-13, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando.
Online registration is now open!
At this time, we are planning on hosting an in-person event, and hoping that the coronavirus will be sufficiently contained that we will be able to do so. If circumstances dictate any changes to our plans, we will be sure to let everyone know right away!
No matter the format, we will host The 23rd Annual Family Cafe this June!
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 $200 registration fee.
The Family Café is also proud to offer families limited Financial Assistance, which can provide for complimentary accommodations at the host hotel, the Hyatt Regency Orlando. Financial Assistance is distributed through a lottery process. To request Financial Assistance, make sure to check the appropriate box on the registration form.
If you would like to make a reservation with the Hyatt Regency Orlando, you can call the hotel directly at 407-284-1234, or find them online here. Make sure to mention The Annual Family Cafe to get the special $129/night rate.
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.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, The 22nd Annual Family Cafe was held as a virtual event. The Family Cafe printed a full event program, with descriptions of every breakout session, including both those that were part of the live virtual event and those that had been planned for the face-to-face event but could not be delivered live. The program includes contact information for the presenters so families can reach out to them with questions. We also invited presenters that could not be included in the live virtual event to share their presentation materials with us. You may find both livestream recordings and the interactive program with links to recorded sessions at the videos section of this website here.
