Update: 6-22-12
I just made my reservation and found our a little more info...

If you fly into Orlando International Airport (NCO) and have booked your room at the Coronado Springs Resort, then you can call them ahead of time and arrange for a FREE, complimentary shuttle to our destination (Normally a cab would cost $80 each way!)
There are restaurants to dine at like the Pepper Market and the Maya Grove.
There are 4 theme parks
1) The Magic Kingdom
2) Epcot Center
3) Disney's Hollywood Studios
4) Disney's Animal Kingdom
If you are a pass-holder (like myself) for Disneyland, your pass is NOT transferable.  You must purchase tickets to attend the park.
AND I just found out they have complimentary wi-fi in every room and several hot spots in common areas!!!
for FREE there is Downtown Disney.
No entrance fee and lots of restuarans, shopping and things to do. 

Also, somethin fun for young and old the Disney Trading Pins.  The rules are that every employee has to trade with you unless yours is damaged or they already have the one you're trying to give them.  You can buy starters off of Amazon or Ebay pretty cheap and then trade for cuter ones at any of the Disney parks, hotels or Downtown Disney.
here are a couple more sites for you to visit:
Disney Convention Ears
Everything Mouse
fun fun fun!
AXUL is our color group!
Airport code: MCO for Orlando, FL if you are checking flights now! Allow time to attend your team meeting Wed. nite after 6pm if you are not attending leadership. You don't want to miss out on the pre-convention fun!
