This week, Vanessa Salamon shares the story of planning her Wishes vow renewal reception at California Grill’s Napa Room, with a ceremony and brunch at House of Blues, all the way from Australia. You’ll hear how she chose this unique and often unexplored option for combining a Wishes reception with a non-Disney ceremony, plus lots of details on the Fantasmic! welcome party and IllumiNations farewell party she added. You’ll also hear how she scheduled the appearances of six characters for maximum impact: Rapunzel, Donald, Daisy, Mickey, Minnie and Gaston! And Vanessa shares tons of helpful info on menu planning for all three meals, including ways Disney was able to incorporate gluten-free food and cake options.
