First Timers’ Reception (First-Time Attendees and New Members Only)

join us to learn what to expect and how to get the most out of your first
AMC Institute Annual Meeting. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet AMCI leaders.
Disney Destinations is looking forward to hosting you for a culinary journey at the award-winning
Napa Rose Restaurant, located at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. The opening night
reception will be an interactive experience to include sommelier guided wine tasting stations and a
behind the scenes, side-by-side adventure with the incredible culinary team. As you pass through
the “Theater Kitchen,” you’ll get behind the stoves and interact with the chefs as your dinner is
prepared and served right off the grill, out of the pan, or just off the rotisserie! This evening
promises to be a one-of- a-kind event for all to enjoy! The opening night continues as attendees are escorted to a viewing of World of Color – Celebrate! filled with never-before-seen surprises and dazzling
fire and laser special effects, stirring music and towering screens that come to life with new and
classic Disney animation. Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and the one-and-only Mickey Mouse, it’s an unforgettable opportunity to follow along on Walt’s incredible journey of imagination—from his earliest creations, to his very first visions for The Happiest Place on Earth, to today’s Disney magic… and beyond! Still up for more fun – join us for a special private attraction experience at the park.
Note: Attendees will be escorted from Napa Rose Restaurant to the other evening events

Networking Luncheon - Got Data? Got Game!
A leader’s ability to both recognize and then make shifts to his/her organization is a critical
skill that is hard to master. Whether it is anticipating the needs of your clients, creating new
business models, reinventing the member experience, or determining which investments will provide
the strongest opportunity for growth, understanding how to capture, analyze, and use data will
separate those who can predict trends and those who follow them. Join us for an overview of AMCI’s learning lab – to find out how we are uncovering and communicating key insights that will strengthen the value of the AMC model.
