If tying the knot is in your future, bring out your inner royalty in style on your wedding day
while making all of your dreams come true. Walt Disney World is no stranger to making people’s fairy tales come to life, but now they just stepped up their game. The Florida park is now inviting joyful couples to wed inside the Magic Kingdom East Plaza Garden during park hours.
While wedding ceremonies have been taking place at Disney for years, this is the first time
Disney is hosting weddings in the Magic Kingdom during the day when the park is open to the public. There are a few Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding collections the couple can choose. The Wishes wedding collection gives the couple a princess perfect view of Cinderella’s Castle in the background during their vows and their choice of transportation from a vintage Rolls-Royce to Cinderella’s Coach. Disney weddings also take place at the Wedding Pavilion at Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and around the Epcot area.
“The East Plaza Garden at Disney’s Magic Kingdom is a venue like no other where you can now say your vows with your beloved sweetheart in the ultimate fantasy setting,” according to
Disney’s blog. “Located at the end of Main Street U.S.A., the East Plaza Garden provides the
perfect setting for a ceremony fit for royalty. Not only does Cinderella Castle provide a stunning backdrop for your nuptials, but you can arrive to your ceremony in style with Cinderella's Coach and for your wedding party a classic turn-of- the-century Main Street Vehicle.”
The Magic Kingdom ceremonies will begin at 9:30 a.m. and can accommodate up to 100 guests on the special day. While some say you can’t put a price on happiness, this wedding ceremony might be the epitome of what happiness can buy. A complete customized ceremony and reception for 100 guests start at $75,000 while other wedding packages collections begin at $2,500, and custom packages start at $12,000.
