Lake Buena Vista, FL, August 15, 2007 --( The National Fantasy Fan Club (NFFC) will be holding their Second Annual Convention in Orlando on September 27 thru September 30, 2007. The event will take place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and inside Epcot.

The NFFC is an international club for Disney enthusiasts with more than 30 chapters. They regularly hold their convention at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. This 23 year tradition will continue with the west coast convention taking place in July. The Orlando convention dates in late September were chosen to coincide with the anniversary of Walt Disney World’s grand opening.

Seminars will be held at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort on Thursday, September 27th and on Friday, September 28th at EPCOT in the special VIP room of the Living Seas. Not normally available to the public. Confirmed featured speakers Dave Smith, Head of the Disney Archives; Charles Ridgway, Former Director of Public Relations for Walt Disney World Resort; Terri Hardin, Imagineer; Mike Peter and Virginia Davis, who was the original live action star that Walt Disney cast as Alice in the Alice Comedies, before Mickey Mouse was created. and more speakers are to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Again they will be hosting our fabulous NFFC’s annual Lunch with the Legends. The event gives conventioneers the opportunity to dine at a table with a NFFC Disney Legend, so named due to their outstanding contribution to the Walt Disney Company. This year's Disney Legends are: Bob Matheison and Bill Sullivan. In the past, Invited Legends included merchandise design artist Ralph Kent, Tom Nabbe who was Disneyland’s original Tom Sawyer.

Festivities on Friday will conclude with a private dessert viewing of IlluminNations, the evening fireworks spectacular in Epcot.

On Saturday, September 29 Disney memorabilia collectors and dealers will have their wares on sale at the Show & Sale at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort's Convention Center. Several authors of Disney related books will be on hand signing copies. Registered conventioneers will be admitted one hour earlier than the general public. The Show & Sale will open to the public at 10:00 am and concludes at 5:00 pm and there is Free Parking.

That evening, conventioneers will be attending the ‘Part of Your World’ dinner. Every table at the dinner will have at least one Disney VIP offering attendees a personal conversation sharing their stories and experiences.

Special to the Second annual convention is the opportunity for conventioneers to take a two hour tour around Epcot aboard a Segway Human Transporter at a special convention rate. Come and take the Undiscovered Epcot tour (which is around Future World) and discover untold wonders about Epcot's Future World. Please Note: Both tours do not conflict with the seminars schedule.

On Sunday, September 30, 2007, the conventioneers will spend part of their day on a Digital Photo Scavenger Hunt and riding attractions in Epcot culminating with an Awards ceremony and group photo to commemorate the weekend.

Come meet the Disney Imagineers, meet the Disney stars, meet the Disney book authors and meet the Disney artists. Only NFFC provides this kind of experience.
