  1. I love your podcasts! My fiance and I have just begun to think about having a WDW wedding… we think we just figured out the “can we afford it?” step!

    Quick question: We are considering a Wishes Catered Event experience. We noticed some of the brides you have featured have had these types of events during “high season.” In your experience, does Disney Fairytale Weddings sometimes offer this “Mini-Wishes” discount in “high season” months like September-October?

    1. Hi Jacquelyn! Unfortunately, the high-season/low-season thing is new for 2017, so the brides I’ve interviewed who held their Mini Wishes Catered Event Experience wedding during what is now high season all had their events before the new pricing structure kicked in. If you can move you event to low season, it’ll be worth it. Frankly, I’m not sure why a month like September qualifies as high season considering the rest of Disney prices it like low season (and the weather’s terrible to boot!)…
