A Proposal Caught on Tape at Walt Disney World

posted on August 31st, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


It’s not every day that cameras are on hand to capture one of life’s extra special moments. In this case, Chris asked our team if we would tag along to document the proposal experience as a keepsake for him and his bride-to-be. Chris envisioned asking for Kellie’s hand in marriage at a secluded location with a stunning backdrop – Disney’s Polynesian Resort immediately came to mind! Let’s watch the magic unfold.

A Super Sweet 16 at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion

posted on August 11th, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Sixteen years ago the first permanent wedding destination at Walt Disney World Resort was built. Disney’s Wedding Pavilion would quickly grow to become a crown jewel and one of our most popular ceremony locations. To commemorate this special milestone, we recently installed striking stained glass windows etched with our signature Cinderella’s Coach.

A Disney Wedding: They Go Together Like Peanut Butter & Jelly

posted on July 25th, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


When I first came across photos from Peter and Jen’s Disneyland Resort wedding, my heart melted. When I found out the couple affectionately calls themselves PB&J, my heart was forever their’s. Peter and Jen are one of the warmest, most genuine couples you will ever meet – their love is simply intoxicating. With a reception at the Disney Animation building and special ride experience on Soarin’ Over California for their guests, PB&J’s Disneyland nuptials were truly one-of-a-kind.

We invited PB&J back to Disneyland to capture a very special ad as part of Bringing the Fairy Tale to Life, which features real brides with real Disney memories. I hope you enjoy this behind-the-scenes peek at the making of this exceptional ad as well as the finished piece. Let the memories begin!

I recently had the chance to sit down with David Tutera, celebrity wedding planner, to reminisce about the past 20 years of happily-ever-afters here at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings. In his latest trip to Disney’s Wedding Pavilion, David spoke about trend predictions for the season (red is the hot, new color!) as well as the magic and grandeur that only Disney can provide. I invite you to sit back, relax and get inspired by our impromptu interview. If you have additional questions after the video, feel free to tweet me or find us on Facebook.

A Surprise Vow Renewal Fit for a Princess at Walt Disney World

posted on June 2nd, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Every once in a while a story comes along that still amazes me – even after being here for 15 years. Brian & Danielle’s story does just that. Brian surprised his wife with a vow renewal fit for a princess – yes, you heard me right, surprised! He created the “Princess for a Day Contest,” which of course Danielle won, and then enlisted our help to make his wife’s wedding dreams a reality. Check out the video below of the surprise wedding dress reveal.

After a little bibbidi bobbidi boo, the couple were off to say “I do” once again at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion. According to Brian, the day kept getting better and the entire event went off without a hitch.

Disney Weddings Transportation Fit for Royalty

posted on April 25th, 2011 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


As many of you may have heard, Prince William and Kate are scheduled to leave their nuptials in a glass coach. Back in 1995, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons turned to Bennington Carriages – coach makers to the British Monarchy for the past 46 years – to create a glass coach of our own. Built in Newark, Nottinghamshire, England, Cinderella’s Coach is the ultimate royal transportation. Led by six white Dapper Dan ponies and accompanied by three coachmen, it is truly a fairy-tale icon come to life.

Want to see Cinderella’s Coach in person? Join us for our Royal Sleepover!
