Getting an invitation to a Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding can be exciting and overwhelming all at at once. It’s not just one of the most fun events you will ever attend, it’s also a vacation that requires lots of planning. Today’s show is for anyone who’s been invited to a Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding at Walt Disney World or Disneyland (or for Disney brides and grooms who want to share this helpful information with their guests!).

Disney bride Hope, a veteran Disneyland wedding guest, joins me to cover all the basics of attending weddings and vow renewals at the Disney resorts on both coasts.

  1. are the discounts available for guests of the Escape weddings as well? Do all the packages get the same perks for their guests/bride groom? are there any major differences between wishes and escape in terms of guests(other than transportation, number of guests and all other listed things on the site)

    1. Unfortunately, the discounts are only for guests of Wishes weddings. Escape couples are no longer able to set up room blocks, which is how you get the discount. You might be able to set up a room block by going through Disney’s Groups department, but the discount is only about 10%. The (paltry) ticket discount is the same for all types of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings: $20 off a park hopper ticket. Wishes and Escape events both come with annual passes for the bride and groom, but otherwise there are no real perks for the couple or their guests.

  2. Thanks for having me on the show again Carrie. 🙂

    I forgot to mention air-travel for the Disneyland Resort. For those traveling to Disneyland, the nearest airports are John Wayne Airport (SNA), Long Beach Airport (LGB) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). SNA is 15 miles away, LGB is 26 and LAX is 35 miles away from Disneyland. I believe that our out-of-town wedding guests flew into LAX because that airport offers the most direct flights and I think for the time of year they were the cheapest. At WDW there’s a complimentary shuttle service to the Disney Resorts, but Disneyland doesn’t have that. There is a shuttle service called the “Disneyland Resort Express” that takes you to/from John Wayne Airport and LAX airport. It costs $32 roundtrip PER guest (half that for children). and makes several stops throughout the Anaheim resort area to pick up various guests. It’s a little pricey, but it may be a convenient option for those wedding guests that do not want to rent a car and pay for parking when all they are going to do is just go to the wedding or spend a few days at Disneyland.
