For a die-hard Disney fan, what could be more magical than tying the knot at your favorite place? The Most Magical Place On Earth feels like even more of a fairy tale when you couple the excitement of a wedding, with your love for Walt Disney World. Now more than ever, couples are turning to Disney to make their wedding more magical. This may be in part thanks to the popular show Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings which features magical weddings around Disney Parks and beyond. Now more than ever, couples are buying into the magic for every part of the wedding celebration.
Maybe you have seen a magical Disney Proposal in a Disney Park. With such beautiful and fun photo ops, it’s no wonder we see theme Park Guests proposing in all 4 Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort. I got a fairy tale proposal in front of Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom in 2015. A bit later in the wedding process, brides might pilgrimage to Disney World with their wedding crew to play in the Parks, party at Disney Springs, and relax at Disney spas.
Then, of course, we have the big day. Disney’s Wedding Pavilion is on the monorail line at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. This Victorian-themed event space has a stunning view of Bay Lake and is the perfect backdrop for the fairy tale wedding of dreams.
But what if your wedding day hopes and dreams extend past Disney’s Wedding Pavilion? Well, you are lucky because the event spaces you can choose for your wedding at Walt Disney World Resort are exciting, beautiful, and just plain unique. Here are Disney World wedding venues you never knew about!
The Tree Of Life
Animal Kingdom Park
If animals, cultures from around the world, or the magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom are some of your favorite things, we have a wedding spot rec. for you! Why not get married at the base of an iconic Disney landmark – The Tree of Life?! Can you think of a lusher natural-looking backdrop? Bonus points, all the lush greenery means you can go simple on flowers for this venue.
Coronado Springs Resort
You probably have a Mickey Mouse-clad image in mind when I say Disney wedding. But the truth is, with so many excellent venue options at Walt Disney World, you can enjoy the magic and convenience of Disney without going overboard on theming. A great example is the Destino Plaza wedding venue at Coronado Springs Resort. The Spanish, Mexican, and American Southwestern theming of this Resort mean that you will have a stunning backdrop to make the perfect Disney Fairy Tale Wedding with as much added Disney flair as you choose.
Is there a more magical space at Disney World than Main Street, U.S.A. facing the iconic Cinderella Castle? This Walt Disney World wedding venue does not come cheap, but you can start your happily ever after by getting married at Cinderella Castle! Talk about a wedding day fit for a princess. This venue delivers on all the fairy tale vibes and is a perfect choice for Disney World traditionalists.
Oak Manor Lawn
Port Orleans Riverside Resort
Want to channel Southern charm and still get married on the Disney property? A ceremony on Oak Manor Lawn at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside might be the perfect fit for you. Towering white columns and shady oak trees will create stunning wedding ambiance for your Disney Fairy Tale Wedding.
United Kingdom Courtyard
EPCOT World Showcase, United Kingdom Pavilion
If an English Garden wedding backdrop is your dream, you should consider marrying at the United Kingdom Courtyard. The perfectly styled hedges, climbing flowers on trellises and British ambiance of the space makes for a stunning ceremony and reception spot. My favorite episode of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings featured a wedding in this spot. Talk about dreamy!
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Courtyard
If a glamorous old Hollywood vibe with a touch of vintage gothic is your wedding vibe, you should marry in Hollywood Studios Park. I’ve raved about the details of this spooky thrill ride, and we’ve dived into the attraction’s backstory and theme. So of course, I think a wedding in the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Courtyard would be stunning.
Sea Breeze Point
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort
If you love the charm of the Disney BoardWalk and want a waterside view, you should consider getting married at Sea Breeze Point. This waterside gazebo on the Disney BoardWalk has a beautiful view of Disney’s Yacht Club and Beach Club Resorts and would make for a beautiful wedding with a nautical and Disney touch.
Pandora- The World of Avatar
If the natural beauty of Animal Kingdom Park and the stunning imaginary world of Avatar wow you- we have good news. You can get married in beautiful and lush Pandora – The World of Avatar. Reciting your vows under the floating mountains or in the glowing grandeur of a bioluminescent forest at night would make for a wedding to remember.
EPCOT World Showcase, Italy Pavilion
Want a wedding celebration with an Italian flair? The raised platform in the Italian Piazza is the perfect spot to exchange vows in front of your friends and family. This part of EPCOT World Showcase is lovely, so your wedding photos will be showstoppers!
These are just a few of the stunning wedding venue options that might surprise you at Walt Disney World Resort. Don’t forget; there are wedding options across the country at Disneyland Resort, wedding packages at Disney’s Aulani Resort and even magical options at sea on Disney Cruise Line! Regardless of the venue you choose, one thing is sure, your Disney wedding consultant will work with you to make all your wedding day dreams come true when you decide to have a Disney wedding!
