Are you prepped for some fun in Orange County this September?

With the EMDRIA Conference coming up soon in Orange County, California, it’s time to start planning your fun along with your professional networking and continued learning.

So, what is there to do in Orange County?

Answer:  Just about everything.

In this blog, we’re highlighting the Anaheim area because there’s so much right next to your hotel room at the conference!

Disneyland Resort

Haven’t visited Disneyland in a while?  You’ll want to make room in your schedule.  Disney’s California Adventure, Disneyland, and Downtown Disney have all undergone improvements with many exciting attractions.

The newest, of course, is Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland.  Not to be outdone, however, California Adventure boasts
the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction Mission: BREAKOUT!  Family favorites are the iconic Carsland where you can interact with Lightning McQueen and Mater as they roll through Radiator Springs and the recent makeover–Pixar Pier–just in time to celebrate the latest Toy Story installation.  Downtown Disney is a shopper’s dream with its massive World of Disney store, multi-level Lego Store, and many more.  If you’re into anything Disney, now is the time!

Angels Baseball

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are in town throughout the EMDRIA conference!  If you’re a baseball fan, take in a major league game.  Saturday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays includes fireworks at the conclusion of the game.

City National Grove of Anaheim

If you enjoy music, you’ll know that a smaller venue is always better.  Friday, Septembers 13, 2019, the Grove in Anaheim will host the classic rock duo Air Supply!  Get tickets by visiting their website here.

Anaheim GardenWalk

If you’re in need of retail therapy or a snow cone on a hot day during the conference, head over to the Anaheim GardenWalk.  Have a 24 Hour Fitness membership?  It’s here too!  Plan to meet friends and colleagues at one of many restaurants as well–Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., California Pizza Kitchen, The Cheesecake Factory and more.  Find a full directory, parking information, and more links here:  Anaheim GardenWalk Directory.

House of Blues Anaheim

The House of Blues Anaheim has moved to the Anaheim GardenWalk and promises both fantastic musical entertainment along with a consistently good menu.  HoB’s World Famous Gospel Brunch Sundays at 10:30am is an instant choice for what to do Sunday morning.

Anaheim Packing District

If you’re in the mood for something a bit more eclectic, visit the downtown area of Anaheim where urban renewal has ignited the history of the region. The Anaheim Packing District is a food and shopping destination in the old Packing House where oranges and other produce were once packed and processed.  Take some friends and enjoy the food and beverage offerings!

These are just a few of spots where you can enjoy what the area has to offer.  Stay tuned for more from EMDR Professional Training to help you plan your stay at the 2019 EMDRIA Conference!
