Walt Disney World (WDW) is one of the wedding industry’s top-ranked destination wedding sites, hosting over 30,000 weddings, commitment ceremonies, and vow renewals since 1991. Each year over 1600 couples, traveling from around the world, visit WDW to exchange vows and to honeymoon at the resort.

For many couples, the availability of Disney’s scenic sites for their marriage, commitment ceremony, or vow renewal is a major reason for choosing WDW. Wedding venues includes pavilions and gazebos, outdoor garden and beach locations, elegant courtyards and resort backdrops, and even sites and attractions inside the theme parks themselves.

Disney’s Wedding Pavilion

Since its opening in 1995, Disney’s Wedding Pavilion has become the signature venue for a WDW wedding and the most frequently used wedding venue. Designed to complement the nearby Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the pavilion resembles a Victorian summerhouse. The pavilion’s solarium, which is built on an island on the Seven Seas Lagoon, provides a view of Cinderella Castle, the lagoon’s sandy beaches and the island’s lush landscaping.

Disney’s Wedding Pavilion serves as a non-denominational venue for ceremonies, and is capable of handling different party sizes. The pavilion will host an intimate ceremony for just the couple, small parties of close family and friends, and large gatherings of up to 300 guests. The pavilion features a chapel with an indoor altar, planning rooms, private dressing rooms inside the vestibule, and a romantic walkway that includes a hedge arch. Also on site is Franck’s, a planning studio that helps couples plan and customize their ceremonies.

Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons

Walt Disney World Weddings & Honeymoons offers three basic collections for their destination weddings and other events: the Escape, for intimate ceremonies for up to the couple and 18 guests; Wishes; for mid-size weddings and receptions; and Couture, which offers couples the chance to design their fantasy Disney wedding. All collections offer customizable options.

Prices begin at $5000 for an Escape Wedding Collection package. Wishes Wedding Collection ceremonies start at $12,000 for 20 or more guests. An average wedding at Disney costs approximately $20,000 for 50 people, though Couture Wedding Collection packages can reach six figures.
