Refining your dream

As you gather inspiration, you can keep track of your ideas on the interactive My Dream Space on the Disney Weddings website, which lets you create an account and stay organized with all your wedding details. Looking for examples of couples who created their own perfect real-life weddings? Take time to peruse the Ever After Blog, where you can read true accounts of how the dedicated planners at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings created one-of-a-kind experiences to reflect each couple’s personal style, from a spectacular wedding at sea aboard the Disney Dream to an elegant Hawaiian wedding at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa to a wedding at Epcot that felt like it took place in Italy. You’ll also glean some good ideas for how your celebration day might flow – for example, a ceremony in a romantic gazebo on the manicured lawn of Disney’s Yacht Club can be followed by cake and champagne on Shipwreck Beach, just a few feet away, and since this resort happens to be within easy walking distance of Epcot, you and your guests might conclude the evening with a firework dessert party. 

You’ll find even more ideas on the popular Freeform series “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings,” which is moving to the new Disney+ streaming service with all-new episodes in 2020. The series follows couples as they plan for their weddings, vow renewals, surprise proposals and epic anniversary trips at Disney Destinations around the globe. You can witness iconic spots throughout the Disney parks and resorts transform into romantic wedding venues, and you’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a fairy tale wedding.

A visit to this one-stop shop gives you the opportunity to meet your dedicated planning team and check out wedding venues, taste cake samples, meet with floral designers and photographers, and discuss every detail of your special day. You can even sit down with a Disney Chef to sample and curate your wedding menu to fit all of your needs.

Attending one of the annual Disney weddings showcases is yet another way to discover how Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings can bring your fairy tale to life. With 2020 events scheduled on both coasts, you will have the chance to see all of the possibilities, meet Disney’s team of wedding experts, taste delectable menu items prepared by Disney chefs, tour a variety of wedding venues, and find inspiration through floral, décor and entertainment.
