Weddings at Walt Disney World

In fact, Walt Disney World hosts about 2,300 weddings a year. More than 20,000 couples have taken their wedding vows in Disney´s storybook atmosphere, and countless more have picked Disney as their choice for a dream honeymoon. Imagine being escorted to your wedding in Cinderella´s glass coach with horses and footmen in attendance or perhaps a themed wedding in Epcot´s Italy Pavilion surrounded by a replica of St. Mark´s Square. Everything can be arranged from the flowers to the photographer, the waiters to the music.

Wedding locations-Although weddings are allowed just about anywhere on Disney property, here are several very popular sites; if you want a theme park wedding, expect the price to skyrocket.

On an island surrounded by the Seven Seas Lagoon is the Wedding Pavilion at the Grand Floridian Resort, offering a magical view of Cinderella´s Castle. The Rose Garden fronting Cinderella´s Castle at the Magic Kingdom is another top pick with a medieval-style banquet in the castle afterward. At Epcot, the Living Seas Lounge comes with a 6-million-gallon aquarium as a backdrop or choose any of the World Showcase pavilions. Sea Breeze Point at Disney´s Boardwalk Resort offers a white gazebo overlooking Crescent Lake. Or you may want to consider the wedding gazebo in the Yacht Club Resort´s serene rose garden. Sunset Pointe at the Polynesian Resort is on a grassy hill overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon with Cinderella´s Castle in the background. Sunrise Terrace at the Wilderness Lodge has a 4th-floor balcony overlooking the pine trees and Bay Lake. You can also have your marriage ceremony on Disney Cruise Line´s private island, Castaway Cay.

Wedding themes-Choose from a traditional wedding to a variety of Disney-themed weddings. Some theme ideas include an Under the Sea wedding at the Living Seas Pavilion, a Beauty and the Beast Ball Wedding, or a Winter Wonderland Wedding. How about a Animal Kingdom Safari reception? Or a Cinderella ball with the bride arriving in a glass coach pulled by white ponies? What about inviting Mickey to your cake cutting? Just about anything is possible at Walt Disney World.

Wedding packages-Disney´s Intimate Wedding or Vow Renewal packages are just how they sound, small and intimate with a maximum of eight guests (each additional guest up to 13 is $100 per person) at one of five locations locations at Walt Disney World.
