World War Brick Anaheim, CA – February 13-15
(scroll down page for WWB Minneapolis info)
World War Brick Anaheim will take place at the Embassy Suites Anaheim South. We have secured the 10,000 SF main ballroom and will have plenty of space for displays, workshops, activities, games and the WWB store. The hotel is a 17 minute drive from the Orange County Airport and 45 minutes from LAX. We have chosen Anaheim for its central location for all of our Souther California friends and of course it’s easy proximity to the Disney Resorts and other local attractions.
Stay at the Embassy Suites and Save
We have secured a discounted room rate with the Embassy Suites for those traveling to the area. The Embassy Suites offers free breakfast each morning and a complimentary reception each evening. Of course they also have a swimming pool, fitness center, tropical atrium, business center and more. In you plan to include other local attractions in your World War Brick experience, the discounted room rates are valid three days BEFORE World War Brick and extend to three days AFTER. We have previously sold out our hotels several months in advance of the event, so we recommend making your reservations as soon as possible to avoid extra travel time each day.
