LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Nov. 8, 2021) – A new collaboration with Kahoot! offers another way for Disney Meetings & Events to add creativity through technology to functions at several Disney destinations in the U.S. Kahoot! is a game-based engagement platform that inspires friendly competition among attendees, ensures training information is retained and gives everyone a voice via audience participation features. In addition, reporting tools allow meeting planners to track progress, participation and knowledge to provide valuable insights.

Combining Disney’s expertise in experiential meetings in immersive settings with Kahoot! technology takes presentations and attendee engagement to new heights. This new collaboration expands the Disney Meetings & Events mission to elevate meetings through custom solutions for hybrid and in-person events, while improving audience attention and retention in a fun way.

Event Gold account, including up to one hour of technical support from Kahoot! to use in connection with their meeting hosted at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, or Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawai’i.*
