QWhat is a Wishes Collection wedding?
AA Wishes Collection wedding can be virtually anything you want it to be. That's the beauty of it! Wishes Collection events are completely customizable so that you can create the wedding of your dreams. Choose from any of our available venues for both your ceremony and reception, and personalize them further with floral enhancements, food and beverages, and entertainment. You will also have your own Wedding Coordinator who will oversee all of the details so that you can enjoy the process with a minimum of stress.
QHow much will my wedding cost?
AThe cost of your Wishes Collection wedding can vary greatly, depending on which venues and enhancements you select, along with the size of your celebration. Pricing is based on a number of factors, including your guest count, a food and beverage minimum, plus overall costs, if applicable. These expenses will be combined with your ceremony and reception site fees to determine the total price of your wedding celebration.
QWhat costs are associated with goods and services such as flowers and entertainment?
AEach of these items has a separate cost that will be discussed during the planning phase. We recommend that you use Disney-preferred vendors, though you do have the option to hire your own. If you decide to host your wedding or reception at a Disneyland® Resort theme park, however, we require that you use our Theme Park Wedding Package vendors.
QCan I have my Wishes wedding ceremony, vow renewal, commitment ceremony or reception at locations throughout the Disneyland Resort?
AYes, you can. One of the best things about the Wishes Collection is that it offers you the entire range of available options so that you can custom-design your event to your specifications. We encourage you to explore the variety of locations available at our theme parks and Resort hotels to find one that's everything you had in mind.
QWill my deposit be applied toward my event?
AYes. Your deposit will serve as your commitment to hosting your wedding at the Disneyland Resort, enabling our team to begin planning your event and securing your selected venue(s) and Resort hotel accommodations. Your deposit, once received, is non-refundable and is required in order to confirm your event. After that, planning may begin as early as a year in advance of your wedding date.
QDo costs associated with services provided by Disney-preferred vendors apply toward my event minimum cost?
AYes, but only Disney-provided services will apply toward your event minimum, while any non-Disney-provided services will not. Disney-provided services always include all food and beverage and the wedding cake, but may also include floral and décor, specialty lighting and entertainment services. Non-Disney-provided services may include invitations, photographers, videographers, hair and makeup stylists, and officiants. Your Disney Wedding Planner will be happy to clarify this for you during the planning process.
QCan I bring my own cake?
No. We're sorry, but cakes and all other food- and beverage-related goods and services must be furnished by the Disneyland Resort. The good news is, we're exceptional at both! We offer an amazing variety of spectacular cake designs and delicious flavors for you to choose from. Or, if you prefer, our award-winning pastry chefs are happy to create an entirely original cake based on photos or your imagination. Visit our Cake Photo Gallery
to view some of our most popular designs.
QI would love to have my wedding or vow renewal ceremony at a Disneyland Resort theme park but do not have the budget. How do you suggest we incorporate some Disney magic into our event?
AWe are pleased to offer many magical opportunities to enhance your wedding celebration. For example, you may wish to consider a pre- or post-wedding event such as a Fantasmic! dessert party or even a World of Color picnic with reserved seating to add a dash of Disney to your special day. For booking information, please call (714) 781-3463. Your Disney Wedding Specialist can provide additional details about these and other options as you plan your wedding celebration.
QI am considering a wedding date one year from now. How far ahead should I start planning for a Disney celebration?
AYour timing is perfect! Planning is the key to a successful wedding. Typically, Wishes Collection weddings may be booked up to 18 months in advance and then involve a one-year planning cycle. Of course, we understand that special circumstances and needs do arise, and our team would be delighted to work with you to accommodate your particular requirements. Be sure to discuss all scheduling needs and options with your Disney Wedding Specialist.
