Welcome everyone to CEO Dreamland, our first ever tournament event dedicated to all things Super Smash Bros. and Multiplayer Brawlers. We have attendees coming from over 40 States and 10 Countries to compete and have fun with other passionate fans at the Wyndham Orlando Resort!
This Guide will help you make the most of the event in case you’re curious when and where to be or what’s happening all weekend.
The important Stuff!
How can I get to the venue (Wyndham Orlando Resort, 8001 International Dr. Orlando, FL 32819)?
The best option we’ve found is a MEARS shuttle for $21 each way to the Wyndham. MEARS motor shuttle is located on level 1 of the airport.
Sharing a cab if you have multiple people is an option, on average the cab ride to the Wyndham is about $50-$60 each way.
Uber can also pick up now from the airport but only the more expensive Uber XL option.
We will have a badge pickup line for registered players and spectators in front of the Palms Ballroom Main Entrance all weekend. Please pick up your badge at least one hour before your scheduled start time if you are competing.
Spectator passes are still available in front of the Palms ballroom entrance. They are $15 for a single day wristband or $30 for a weekend lanyard and badge while supplies last. We accept Cash or Card.
To pick up your badge please bring a Photo ID or a printout/picture of your PayPal receipt to collect it. We also have a dedicated line to those who ordered a Contributors Badge that’ll you’ll see when you arrive to grab your badge even quicker. Thank you for the additional support!

GENERAL EVENT AND HOTEL RULES TO BE AWARE OF:
As always please keep a few things in mind to make this an enjoyable weekend:
-Parking at the Wyndham is free during the day.
-Be respectful to everyone; across all the space we have, the hotel can handle about 5,000 people, so some areas will be packed especially Friday/Saturday during pool play. However, once the majority of pools are over, we will start making room for chairs to enjoy semis and finals day and leave some setups in the back for casuals until Sunday afternoon.
-Listen to staff please. Everyone is working super hard to ensure things run smoothly. If you have any problems with staff or other players, please find Jebailey.
-Don’t forget to bring your own controllers, converters, etc. for all tournaments. Be sure to let players that play after you know to delete your controller from system memory in the settings if you use a Wii Mote.
-When you get your pools and pool schedules please do not be late.
-NO Outside food in the ballrooms or Alcohol of any kind. Drinks such as sodas or bottled waters are fine; just keep them off the stations. If you’re caught with any alcohol in the ballrooms, you will be removed from the event. The pool area has Gatorville, a full bar and restaurant, open until 11 PM every night.
-NO GLASS at the pool. If you plan to drink anything out and about, please only have plastic. Security will call me to yell at you.
-NO VAPING IN THE BALLROOMS. Just NO.
-And as always: It’s Florida, remember to shower and be hygienic, we want everyone feeling comfortable. If you sweat through all your clothes, feel free to buy more CEO T-Shirts to get you through the weekend.
