LAKE BUENA VISTA (CBSMiami) – One of the most sought after spots for Disney fans to have a fairy tale wedding has remained off-limits for years.
Now it’s available – for a price.
The Walt Disney World Resort has announced that, as part of the popular “Wishes Collection,” couples can now exchange vows in the newly enhanced East Plaza Garden offering up to 100 guests a picture-perfect view of Cinderella Castle.
“Couples have been seeking a celebratory location showcasing the iconic Cinderella Castle,” said Korri McFann, Marketing Director for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to make those dreams a reality.”
After the celebrated “I do’s,” guests are whisked off for reception festivities at a variety of locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
Booking a wedding at the East Plaza Garden location in front of the castle requires a $25,000+ venue fee, according to the Disney Weddings webpage.
When you add in the other required components of the Disney Wedding package, which includes a reception for 100 guests, the total price for a castle-front wedding will run at least $75,000, according to the website.
If this is just a bit out of your budget, there are other wedding venues at the resort, including the Living Seas Salon in Epcot and the courtyards of EPCOT’s World Showcase pavilions. But you can expect to lay down five figures for those sites as well.
