The Walt Disney World Resort takes weddings very seriously. Their exclusive Disney Fairy Tale Weddings department offers so many wonderful options for couples that want to be married on property (as I discussed with my friend Rachel, in Tips on a Fairytale Wedding from a DISBride). If you were already drooling over the very idea of a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding, sit down, because this news will make you squeal!
USA Today released information today announcing that Disney will now allow weddings to be held INSIDE the Magic Kingdom Park right in front of Cinderella Castle! No longer do Brides and Grooms have to settle for the Cinderella Castle to be across Seven Seas Lagoon– now they can take their horse-drawn carriage ride right down Main Street, U.S.A. and have their nuptials held in the new East Plaza Garden!
So, of course, now we need the details, right? The East Plaza Garden will be available for morning weddings starting at 9:30am. The Garden will be able to accommodate up to 100 guests. Couples will not be able to have receptions at this location, however there are plenty of other amazing locations throughout the Resort for receptions to be held. Magic Kingdom will be open to Park Guests at this time.
DIStracted Tip: This location is considered a “Premiere location” and along with a completely customizable ceremony/reception for your guests, pricing will start at $75,000. For more pricing and options, visit www.disneyweddings.com.
Since I am just about to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary, my chance has passed me by. However, I have two daughters – I believe I will need to start saving my pennies! This looks like a dream come true.
