Hotel & Travel

The 31st EAST Annual Scientific Assembly will be held January 9-13, 2018 at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. 

Retreat to this ultra-modern Disney Resort hotel and discover award-winning dining, spectacular views and dazzling pools. Whether you’re staying in the iconic A-frame Contemporary tower or the nearby Garden Wing, you can walk to Magic Kingdom main gate or catch the Resort Monorail as it breezes through the tower. Inside, a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair—responsible for the distinct look and feel of the “it’s a small world” attraction—celebrates the Grand Canyon and the American Southwest.


Housing will open for the 31st EAST Annual Scientific Assembly around September 1st.  Check back here for up-to-date details regarding making your housing arrangements for the upcoming meeting.

EAST had a limited number of pre-determined rooms at our group rate in our housing block.  The cut-off date to reserve a room at the group rate will be December 8, 2017, or until the block sells out.  After this date, EAST cannot guarantee the rate attendees will receive. 

The group discounted room rate through EAST for the 31st EAST Annual Scientific Assembly will be $262 (plus applicable state and local taxes) for a single or double room.  A limited number of Government rated rooms will be available at the designated prevailing rate which will be publicized once housing opens.


Airline and ground transportation information will be posted later this Spring 2017.
