New Pricing for Disney World Weddings!

Yesterday, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings replaced their Wishes, Escape and Memories collections with a new pricing structure that makes every wedding and vow renewal a completely customizable event, with no guest limits or weekday restrictions.

Today, Disney bride Shantel Kinzler joins me to discuss everything you need to know about the new way weddings are planned and priced at Walt Disney World. We cover the new flat Event Minimum Expenditure, including what counts toward it and how it is calculated based on the ceremony venue, day and time you choose. We also talk about changes to dessert parties, how to add cake and Champagne to your ceremony-only event, and what happens if you’ve already signed a contract but want to take advantage of the new pricing. And Shantel shares tips from her own Wedding Pavilion ceremony, Living Seas Salon reception and UK Lochside dessert party.

Additionally, this episode covers the planning process from start to finish, including 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 answer frequently asked questions about these unprecedented changes to the way Disney does weddings.

  1. Hi. With new pricing if ceremony is at sea breeze point or luau point can you have cake and champagne at ceremony site and Epcot dessert party as reception and will both count toward event minimum?

    1. Cake and Champagne and dessert parties are both considered “celebration” events by Disney. This means that if you have both, only the first one will count toward your Event Minimum. I would just do the cake cutting and toast at the dessert party.
