Disney's Wedding Pavilion
This Day in History: Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding Pavilion opened its doors on July 15, 1995 as the first permanent wedding destination at the Walt Disney World Resort. Over the past 15 years, tens of thousands of couples from all over the world have held their happily-ever-after moments in this very special place. We’ve had the pleasure of bringing fairy tales to life in a magical location that offers a breathtaking view of Cinderella Castle.

  • We were married there Nov 07. It was a fantastic day – if there’s anyone that know how to organise an event, it’s Disney! We went back for a look around on our first anniversary and we’ll be back celebrating our third this year. Hoping to renew our vows on our 10th anniversary (or maybe our 5th ;))

  • We got married there July 15, 2003 and it was AMAZING! I didn’t know that we got married on the anniversary of the opening date of the Wedding Pavillion!!! Our reception was at the Living Seas with the aquarium surrounding us. It was the most beautiful day and we still have family and friends comment to us about how much fun our wedding was! We hope to renew our vows there on our 10 year anniversary!

  • I got married there 08-04-02, it’s going to be 8 years this coming Aug and it was well worth any amount that you pay. It was one of the most magical moments ever. As I Bride I was treated like a princess and I felt like I was a princess that day, I had the carriage and was in awe when they stopped the monorail on the tracks as the carriage came around the bend toward the pavilion. My night was almost flawless (nothing that Disney did It was the band leader we hired) Disney will do whatever you want (within reason) and it is well worth any amount.

  • We were married there 11 years ago. ♥ It was a truly a Magical day for everyone. Our friends and family still say that it was the most special wedding that they have ever attended. My father-in-law (our best man) passed away 2 months before the wedding, so we were completely devastated. The coordinators took care of everything….. it was the day that started healing our broken hearts. We became Vacation Club members and have visited WDW every month for 11 years. ♥ Happy 15th Wedding Pavilion- See Ya Real Soon!!!

  • My youngest daughter had her wedding there 4 years ago and it was beautiful. After the ceremony her reception was held at the Grand Floridian Resort. The entire experience was some thing to be remembered forever.

  • Would’ve love to get married at the Pavilion but living on the West Coast we opted to honeymoon at WDW instead. However we were lucky enough to be invited to a wedding at the Pavilion after moving here to Florida in recent years. What a beautiful location for a wedding! It is beautifully designed to showcase Cinderella Castle in the background as the couple share vows. A fairy tale beginning to any “happily ever after” marriage.

  • i wonder if the percentage rate of couples staying married who had their wedding in disney is higher? i would love to have my wedding there but first i need a boyfriend!!!!! ahhhh just like a women to dream of her prince charming……

  • We were married Nov. 5, 2005 with the reception in Epcot’s Italy Isola and American Adventure. It was the most amazing experience of my life! I can’t imagine NOT having had my wedding in Disney.

  • We got married there in January 2008. It was a dream come true!

  • We were not married in the pavilion, but at the Grand Floridian. As everyone has has said who had a Disney Fairytale Wedding, it was worth every cent and I highly recommend getting married anywhere at Disney to everyone I know getting married. The wedding team is incredible, well beyond incredible, and there is simply nothing like waking up the morning after your wedding at the happiest place on earth!!!!

  • This will be great for any future weddings I may have.

  • I hope it’s not too outrageously expensive to get married there–I would loooveee that! My boyfriend and I already go to Disney every year and that’s where I’m truly happiest. I already told him the perfect engagement spot would be in front of the fountain at Epcot at nighttime 🙂

  • I’m getting married there next July! Just started the contract signing process and my fiance and I cannot wait!

  • I was married there April 24th, 2007. What a Wonderful Day! We plan on renewing our vows there in the coming years. Its Not as expensive as people think!! If you keep a low key tone in mind Disney will work with you to make it just as Magical as those Huge Weddings that cost thousands. Plus ALL my guests I had one on one time with and I wasn’t in a sea of people. To each there own but remember this is YOUR day not your guests. So if you dream it Disney will bring it to life without putting you and your new spouse in debt beyond belief. Happy 15th to the Wedding Pavilion lets go for 15 million MORE!! Lol! With Disney Anything is possible. These Million Dollar wedding shows are overrated. Disney is the Million Dollar wedding in itself. Who could ask for anything more then to get married at the Most Magical Place on Earth?!

  • My husband and I were married there 13 years ago this October. We had the best wedding anyone could ask for. They took care of everything and I didn’t do much.That was the first trip to Disney for my husband, now we go at least once a year!


  • My fiancee and I will be getting married at the Wedding Pavilion in December. It truly is one of the most beautiful locations on property. We can’t wait!

  • My husband and I were married at the Wedding Pavilion in October 2005 and it was worth every penny we spent. Our guests are still talking about our wedding and it’s almost 5 years later! We highly recommend a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding!!

  • its as old as me haha so i live near disney , plan on working there , and want to have my wedding there too …. im not obsessed am i ?

  • My daughter is only 18 and is *dreaming* of a wedding at Disney World…I can’t wait!

  • @Sarah – LOL we plan on renewing our vows there on our 20th. We are 4 years away!!!! Wonder if it’s too early to start planning??

  • If I ever meet my prince charming I want to get married there – I’m not getting married unless I can get married at Disney :-)It would be a dream come true.

  • My husband & I were married there 5 years ago. It cost a lot of money but was worth every dime of it. We go back usualy once a year to visit. It was the best wedding ever!

  • To be married in Disney is my All time Dream Wedding, I can’t wait ’til the day I can sit down with a Disney Wedding Planner and Start Making my Dreams come true!! I’m so Excited!! I see the Wedding Pavilion and I get so Happy 🙂

  • I got married there. It was worth every penny.

  • There could not be a more beautiful place to have a wedding! I would love to be married here!!

  • This is a beautiful place. I hope to one day be able to celebrate my wedding there, or my daughter’s. Thank you for providing such a beatiful and magical place for fairy tales to come true.

  • I plan to renew my 25th there. It is only 17.5 years away, but that will not stop me from doing it! 🙂
