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


Our couples have always loved sequential number dates – it all started with 01-01-01 and has grown to become a large part of the weddings industry for the past 10 years. In fact we are already holding space for 12-12-12, the last date in the series.

As fate would have it, we have exactly 11 couples starting their happily-ever-after today at Walt Disney World Resort. To give you an idea of the work that goes into making these events go off without a hitch, we stopped by the Disney Florist to get a shot of all the floral going into these 11 celebrations.

Higitus, Figitus, Zomba, Kazee – Halloween Wedding at Walt Disney World

A Halloween Wedding at Walt Disney World

Happy Halloween, ghouls and boys! I love the holidays and especially love when our couples get into the festivities. Today, we have a very special wedding happening at Walt Disney World- a wedding inspired by Halloween itself. Adam & Wendy wanted their family and friends to have as much fun as possible at their wedding- they are traveling far and wide to attend after all. So they encouraged guests (and Cast Members) to don their favorite costume for the All Hallows’ Eve nuptials. Till death do us part…

The Makaloa Garden was completely transformed into a stylish and elegant wedding venue complete with a draped floral wedding arch, dazzling chandeliers and chic furnishings. We even sprinkled in a little Disney magic with custom made Mickey-shaped pink pillows and flower petals forming the shape of Mickey’s head carefully placed down the aisle. Mickey and Minnie themselves even joined in on the enchanting celebration sporting their Hawaiian wedding attire.

One thing is for sure – Aulani had me saying “ahh-loha”!

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!

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.
