Wishes Collection Overview & FAQ

This week, Disney bride Kristi Fay joins me to discuss everything you need to know about Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ Wishes Collection weddings and vow renewals at Walt Disney World.

This show is designed to introduce you to the basics of planning a Wishes event, which, unlike the Escape and Memories packages, is a completely customizable, a la carte experience. We cover the three expenditure requirements—a ceremony fee, a per-person food and beverage minimum expenditure, and an enhancement minimum expenditure—with specific pricing for 2017. This includes an explanation of the often confusing room-night requirement and room-blocking process.

We also compare the requirements for the lower-priced Wishes Catered Event Experience (a.k.a., “Mini Wishes”) which is a discount available for shorter, smaller Wishes Weddings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at certain times of year.

Additionally, this episode covers the planning process from start to finish, including the on-site planning session and a timeline of the major financial milestones: paying the deposit, paying the minimum expenditure, paying the balance, and settling up after the event.

And we look at a timeline of the wedding day itself, discuss events you can add to enhance the day or create an entire wedding weekend, and answer frequently asked questions.

  1. LOVE the podcast and your book!!! I have a question on the deposits…. for the train station I read the deposit is $10,000 … do you know if that is still true and if so how much if that is held vs put to cost right away?

    Thank you!

    1. Glad you like them! Yes, it’s still $10,000. $9,000 goes toward your minimum payment and $1,000 is held back for overages.
