When you’ve got your heart set on a Disney wedding, one of the most important and exciting decisions you’ll make is where to tie the knot. From beaches to castles and everything in between, there are so many locations to consider throughout Disney Parks and Resorts, on Disney Cruise Line and at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii. No matter your budget or the size of your wedding party, there’s a perfect Disney wedding venue just for you.

Your special day the Disney way

You might whisk your guests to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, or to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, where venue possibilities span private islands, castle courtyards, European plazas, and stunning rose gardens. At Walt Disney World, two of the most popular wedding venues are Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, nestled on the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon on its own private island, and Sea Breeze Point, a dreamy lakeside gazebo on Disney’s BoardWalk. When you work with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, you’ll have a team of dedicated wedding experts that can transform iconic Disney park locations into romantic ceremony spots – from Cinderella’s Castle in Magic Kingdom to the Chinese Courtyard in Epcot to the courtyard in front of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Disney’s beautiful themed resorts are synonymous with superb hospitality and offer a trove of extraordinary wedding locations, from Luau Beach at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to the Southern elegance of Oak Manor Lawn at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside to the romantic Rose Court Garden at Disneyland Hotel. Another classic choice is the wedding gazebo in the rose garden of Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, which can be followed by a cake and champagne celebration steps away, at Shipwreck Beach. And there are always new and exciting venues to discover. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort was recently re-imagined with brand new wedding venues, including a lakeside location and a private courtyard, each with picturesque backdrops that reflect the resort’s unique blend of Spanish, Mexican and Southwest American cultures. Your team of Disney planners can show you how to sprinkle in special memories for your guests by adding iconic park experiences like around-the-world dining at Epcot’s World Showcase, dessert parties with fireworks viewing or a private evening cruise on Bay Lake.

A magical world of possibilities

Dreaming of an idyllic Hawaiian beach wedding against the backdrop of a crystal blue ocean? Then it’s got to be Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, where Hawaiian culture and subtle Disney details feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of theme parks. Nestled between verdant mountains and serene ocean waters, Aulani offers a variety of idyllic wedding venues and photogenic backdrops, from tranquil lagoons, lush lawns, and orchid-filled tropical gardens to beach settings and poolside decks. For genuine Hawaiian flare, add in hula dancers, flame throwers, and authentic customs such as the blessing of the leis and a luau feast shared with your guests.

Do you like the idea of a destination wedding but can’t decide on a single destination? There’s absolutely no reason you should have to settle for just one. Disney Cruise Line breaks your possibilities wide open with four spectacular ships and dozens of amazing itineraries. You can get married on one of the ships or at Castaway Cay, Disney’s gorgeous private Bahamian island. Best of all, a Disney Cruise guarantees something for every wedding guest to love, no matter their age or interest. And it might surprise you that a Disney Cruise can be one of the most economical choices for a Disney wedding.

Believe it or not, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Disney wedding venues. There are more Disney Parks and Resorts scattered around the world, from Paris to Shanghai, as well as Disney Vacation Club resort properties in dreamy locations such as Vero Beach, on Florida’s scenic Atlantic Treasure Coast, or beautiful Hilton Head Island, in South Carolina’s Low Country. The team at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings creates wedding celebrations that are just as magical as the venues that host them. So no matter your wedding vision, Disney wedding planners can create a customized experience tailored to your own fairy tale.
