Lodging and Travel

Where do MeridianLink LIVE! and related events take place?

For the first time since 2015, MeridianLink LIVE! and its events will take place in Anaheim, California at the Disneyland® Resort. The Disneyland® Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® will both house Forum attendees. 

  • The MeridianLink negotiated discount rate is $349 per night for a king/double at each property, excluding local and state taxes and fees. This rate is a substantial savings over regular published rates in May 2023. 
  • The cut-off date for reserving a hotel room at this discounted room rate is April 14, 2023. After that date prevailing hotel rates apply. 
  • Rooms at the discounted rate are extremely limited at these hotels before and after the Forum if you plan to extend your stay to Sunday, May 7 and/or Thursday, May 11. 
  • Attendees can cancel their hotel reservations with a minimum of 96 hours’ (about four days) notice prior to the first night of stay without penalty.
  • IMPORTANT: To make your hotel reservations at either property with the special discounted rate, you MUST use the link found on your 2023 MeridianLink User Forum registration confirmation. You will also need to input the unique registration code provided on the confirmation in order to complete your online registration.
How do I book a hotel room at the discounted User Forum rate?
  1. Register for the 2023 MeridianLink User Forum. Complete and submit your registration using a valid company email address (versus a personal email address with a domain such as gmail.com or yahoo.com).
  2. Retrieve your User Forum confirmation email. Check your inbox for a confirmation email that will include a special link to the Disneyland® Resort reservation site with an access code needed to secure your discounted User Forum rate of $349 per night. If you make a reservation at the main Disneyland® Resort site or any other booking site, you won’t be able to take advantage of the deeply discounted User Forum rate.
  3. Book your stay. Use the reservation link from your confirmation email to confirm the nights of your stay, then input the access code where prompted. You'll need a credit card to hold your reservation.
