One of the major requirements of a Wishes or Couture Collection event at Walt Disney World (and now an optional way to save on all types of weddings at Disneyland) is that you fill a certain number of room nights at Disney-owned hotels. Part of this requirement is setting aside a block of rooms at one or more Disney resorts that your guests can use at a discount, a process that must be completed before you can sign a contract and put down a deposit for a Wishes event.
The rules and requirements of the guest accommodation minimum and the room block can be fairly overwhelming to those just starting to plan a wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony. On today’s show, Disney bride Wendy Gatarz and I attempt to demystify the process by explaining the difference between the minimum and the block, how the room block works for guests, and how it works for you. We also offer tips that will help you decide which resorts to block and for how many nights, plus our take on the best way to set up your block.
