I would never have my wedding at WDW. I have nothing against people that do. For them, it must feel wonderful, and even 'magical'. But I just don't get why couples would want to do that. I think proposing is ok, and so are anniversaries. But Weddings and Honeymoons should not be at WDW.

Again, I am not saying that they are not wonderful...Im just mearly saying that I think it is a bad idea, and I would never do it. (the only exception being two cast members that met on the job, but that's it!)


Nothing is more wonderful than the imagination. For, in a moment, you can experience a beautiful fantasy. Or, an exciting adventure!

One thing to keep in mind is that if you're at WDW for a special occasion,
like an engagement, wedding, or anniversary, be sure to advertise! There are
no guarantees, of course, but cast members are good at noticing anything

My wife and I went for our 15th anniversary, during the "100 years of magic"
promotion, so I made big buttons that said "15 years of magic" with our
wedding photo. They got us lots of comments and "Happy anniversary"
wishes, along with a re-ride on Big Thunder Mountain, a rose and dessert at
the Yachtsman Steak House, and the buttons got us in to Liberty Tree Tavern
when it was booked solid. (We weren't even trying for any special treatment.
We just asked if they had anything available. The check-in lady laughed at
us. Then she saw the buttons and said, "Well, since it's a special occasion, let
me see what I can do." A few minutes later, we were taken back to a confetti-
strewn table. So not only did they squeeze us into a table, but they also
decorated the table. Way cool.)

So, don't go expecting special treatment, but DO advertise.

Disney Weddings are Magic!!!

I wanted to say a couple of things....
First of all, if you are at all interested in a Disney Wedding, I strongly advise you to check out www.yourfairytale.com and then join the Disneymooners. This group of mostly Disney brides are full of info and can answer any question you may have.
Secondly, in response to the post about a Disney wedding "making a joke about the faithfulness", I respect your opinion but can guarantee there is no question about the faithfulness my husband and I have. Disney offers a place where anything you dream can be. Ceremonies cannot include Mickey and Minnie but receptions can and receptions are all about fun and celebration! What better way to celebrate than in the magic of Disney??? We had our ceremony at Sea Breeze Point (near the Boardwalk hotel), our reception in The Living Seas at Epcot, and a dessert party during Illuminations. There isn't a thing we would change about the day - it was truly magical! If anyone is interested in having a Disney wedding and wants to chat, feel free to email me.
