Picture this: It's your wedding day, and you ride up Main Street U.S.A. in Cinderella's horse-drawn carriage accompanied by royal coachmen adorned in the most elaborate Cinderella-inspired coats. Trumpeters announce your arrival, and your wedding guests stand. Everyone is in awe of your beauty as you make your way to the altar in a lush garden with the majestic Cinderella's Castle rising behind you. Your prince is right there waiting for you! It's time for your fairy tale to begin. Here's the scoop on making your dreams come true.
In the shadows of the castle's spires, brides and grooms will be able to indulge their wishes amid the park's elegant, romantic, and nostalgic ambiance. The East Plaza Garden will be available for 9:30 a.m. ceremonies and can accommodate a good-sized destination-wedding crowd of up to 100 people. The park will also be open to regular customers at that time. As the world's most popular theme park with an estimated annual attendance approaching 20 million, the Magic Kingdom's central hub had been a congested one but Disney recently expanded and reconfigured the area to better control the flow of guests, including new gardens on both sides. With its whimsical topiaries, fountain, and especially its striking views, the European-inspired garden on the Tomorrowland side of Cinderella's Castle is an ideal spot to tie the knot.
Though Disney World has been offering wedding services for many years, couples have been clamoring to get closer to the iconic castle and hold their weddings in the theme park. Previously the only other Magic Kingdom spot to say 'I do' has been the train station, and that has only been available in the early morning hours before the park opens. Another popular ceremony location is its wedding pavilion, located across the lagoon from the Magic Kingdom. It offers a prime but distant view of Cinderella's Castle. For their receptions, couples can choose among a variety of locations throughout the vast resort, although the East Plaza Garden will only be available for ceremonies.
Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings package collections start at $2,500, and custom experiences begin at $12,000. Premiere locations such as the Magic Kingdom, with a completely customized ceremony and reception for 100 guests, start at $75,000. For more pricing and options, visit www.disneyweddings.com.
