One cannot help but first think of Walt Disney World and theme parks when considering an Orlando destination wedding. There is nowhere else on earth where a bride can truly be a princess on her wedding day.
You can choose between three venues for your ceremony in Walt Disney World. These locations for your Orlando wedding location include:
- The base of Cinderella's Castle in the Magic Kingdom's Rose Garden.
- Walt Disney World's non-denominational wedding pavilion.
- EPCOT center; for multi-cultural theme weddings.
Your reception can be held at one of the following places at Walt Disney World:
- The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
- Disney's Yacht Club
- The Beach Club Resort
- The 40's style Promenade Ballroom on Disney's Boardwalk
- The Courtyard at the Castle
It's your choice. Any combination can be created to create your fairy tale wedding.
The Magic Kingdom
Start your day early and pick up a hot coffee and cinnamon roll on Main Street USA and follow the street to the center of the park; Cinderella's castle. On your right, check out Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. Go left and visit the Pirates of the Caribbean. Work your way through the neighborhoods and ride the carousel in Fantasyland, the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland, and Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland.
EPCOT has the World Showcase, which offers 11 nations for you to hold the reception or ceremony for your Orlando destination wedding as well as Future World, which demonstrates technology at its finest. Ride through time in the big 'golf ball' that greets you. Eat a pastry at the French bakery and buy a Paddington bear in England. Stay for the fireworks then go home with your sweetie to create your own.
Disney's MGM Studios
Explore MGM's impressive movie history at the Chinese Theater. Eat at an indoor drive-in theater watching vintage trailers from old films. Find out how things are done behind the scenes by watching Indiana Jones or go on The Backstage Studio Tour.
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Whether you are interested in encountering African safari animals in a recreated habitat on The Dark Continent or you would rather sit inside a theater and enjoy the hilarious movie, It's a Bug's Life, you are bound to love the Animal Kingdom. Have your face painted like a magical forest creature and hang out in the huge Tree of Life in the middle of the park. You will have a great time spending time here as part of your destination wedding experience.
Outside the Theme Parks
You and your guests have a large variety of activities to choose from during your stay at Walt Disney World. Downtown Disney has a section called Pleasure Island that has a number of bars and restaurants for adults. Consider these for bachelor and bachelorette parties. If you'd rather spend time golfing, you have a handful of 18 hole courses from which to choose. Horseback riding, swimming, and sailing are other great ways to spend the day.
Wedding Event Manager at Your Service
A wedding event manager will be assigned to you once you have submitted a deposit for your wedding. He or she will assist you in all your wedding day choices including caterers, transportation, florists, decorations, musicians, photographers, and hotel accommodations for you and your guests. If you have questions or if your guests need help finding fun things to do outside of visiting the theme parks, your wedding event manager will be available for any of your needs for your Orlando destination wedding.
