convention at CSR... should I be worried?

How big of an impact does a typical business convention have at CSR? I saw online that a convention called SUSECon 2013 will be at CSR next November and it coincides with our dates. I googled it and it's convention presumably comprised of all business people, and it says over 500 attended the one last year (held at a different location). Should I be concerned about this? I know they won't impact the park, but do you think they will keep the pools and food court crowded? Any impact on buses? Thanks!

In my opinion, this is a pretty good news. The food court will be as busy as it would be with non-business patrons, so no real change on this point. However, these people are there for the convention center, not for the pools or the theme parks. So pools and buses should be less crowded than they would be without a convention.

Moreover, seeing people in business attire will remind you that you are in vacation while other aren't...

The attendees are usually quiet and just go about their business and meetings, and some meals will be taken at the convention hall. I would not worry about it...would be much more worried about having Pop warner or Cheerleading groups at my resort!

There was a pretty large convention going on when we stayed there - had I not read about it here on the Disboards prior to our arrival, I would have had no idea - no impact on our trip at all.

It"s a convention hotel... there will be conventions there most of the year.

It should have no impact on your trip unless you don't want to see anyone in a suit.

Lots of Disney hotels are convention hotels and it is not bothersome at all.

When we've stayed at Coronado Springs, the only real problem was the people who wore their name tags all around the resort. We ended up making fun of them the entire time. "Oh look, Ted looks like he's having a bad day!" Yeah, we are mean but we were on vacation.

The point is - they are working, YOU are on vacation so enjoy it.
