Ceremonies & Celebrations
QMay I choose the day and time of my ceremony?
AWe are happy to notate your request for a specific time; however, your ceremony date and time will be confirmed 45 days prior to sailing. Ceremony dates and times are preset and scheduled in accordance with other activities on board. At the sole discretion of the ship, dates and times can change due to unforeseen circumstances such as inclement weather, etc.
QIf I am having an onboard ceremony, may I choose my location?
AWe are happy to notate your request for a specific location; however, your ceremony location will be confirmed 45 days prior to sailing. At the sole discretion of the ship, locations can change due to unforeseen circumstances such as inclement weather, etc.
QHow long typically will a celebration last?
AOnboard celebrations typically last 45 minutes to one hour. Disney Castaway Cay celebrations typically last 1.5 to 2 hours.
QWho will perform the ceremony?
AA Disney Cruise Line senior officer will perform all onboard ceremonies. For Disney Castaway Cay ceremonies, a Bahamian government administrator will officiate. Should you choose to provide your own officiant, you may elect to do so. Please note that your own officiant must have a cruise reservation booked and will also be included in your overall guest count.
QIs the legal ceremony separate from the ceremony that takes place during my cruise vacation?
AYes. The legal aspects of the marriage and the associated paperwork will be addressed separately on embarkation day or before the ship leaves its port. This is called a civil ceremony and will be facilitated by a notary or on embarkation day prior to the ship’s departure.

It is the couple’s responsibility to obtain and provide the appropriate documentation (marriage license). Many couples opt for a civil ceremony in their home state in an effort to reduce the amount of paperwork required on board. If a couple is already legally married, the civil ceremony is not required on embarkation day.

It is important to note that civil ceremonies are not available in all ports.
QCan we provide a unity ceremony?
ADue to Disney Cruise Line safety guidelines and U.S. Customs regulations, these items cannot be included in your ceremony. We suggest alternative special touches such as asking a family or friend to read a poem or verse during the ceremony, playing a special song, or asking a family member to give the toast.
QMay we write our vows?
AYes. Couples have the option of reciting their own vows during the ceremony.
QCan I bring silk petals to toss?
ASilk petals may not be sprinkled at on-deck or at Disney Castaway Cay events in the best interest of the environment. Fresh rose petals are available as décor enhancement to your wedding package.
QWhat happens in the event of inclement weather during my celebration?
ASafety is the number one priority on board our Disney Cruise Line ships. In the case of inclement weather, your onboard wedding coordinator will find the best possible indoor location for the celebration. Your onboard coordinator will also notify all appropriate partners as well as notify them of any adjustments. It is important to note that the cruise staff will make every attempt to preserve the original plan and may simply adjust the time to create the best possible experience.
QWhen do I get to meet my onboard wedding coordinator?
AA meet-and-greet with your onboard wedding coordinator will be scheduled for the afternoon of Embarkation Day, once you have checked in at the terminal and boarded the ship. To ensure enough time to check in and board, please plan to arrive at the Disney Cruise Line terminal no later than 12:00 PM (noon).
QHow many guests may attend?
AEach wedding package is designed for 18 people, including the couple.
QIs there a charge for additional guests or vendors?
AShould you have more than 18 people attending (including the couple), a $20 per person fee will be applied to your final invoice. The fee will cover additional support, cake and champagne needed to preserve the integrity of the celebration. For parties larger than 50 people, special accommodations must be made with the ship; therefore, be sure to notify your Disney Wedding Specialist in advance.

Infants under the age of 3 are free of charge. It is important to note that any vendors such as photographers, officiants or videographers that are not hired through Disney Cruise Line will be considered additional guests.
QWhat options do I have if my wedding attire gets wrinkled while traveling?
ABasic dress/suit steaming is included in your wedding package. Simply bring your wedding attire to Guest Services once you board the ship and notify your onboard wedding coordinator that you have wedding attire being pressed. We do recommend that you hand carry your wedding attire on the ship. Onboard pressing is not recommended for certain materials such as silk or items with heavy beading.

AYes. Your Disney Wedding Specialist can provide more information and help you book your session with Disney Fine Art Photography.
QMay I customize my bouquet?
AOur bouquets have been selected for their lasting power and vibrancy as not all celebrations occur at the beginning of each sailing. To ensure that your flowers are as fresh as possible, we offer the bouquet choices showcased in the planning guide. In certain ports, upgrades are available. For a personal touch, we suggest providing your own pin or brooch which can be added to your bouquet on your wedding day.
QMay I add additional floral enhancements for my bridal party?
AYes. Additional floral and select décor can be added to your celebration. Certain floral will vary by port and seasonality. Additional options and pricing will be available in your planning guide.

AYes. Senses Spa & Salon aboard the ship offers hair, makeup, massage and beauty services. The operating hours of the salon vary by ship.

Food & Beverage
QMay we add additional food and drink to our Cake & Champagne Celebration?
AYes. If you are looking to enhance your Cake & Champagne Celebration with additional refreshments, light bites or beverage packages, your Disney Wedding Specialist will provide curated menus for you.
QWe are having dinner immediately following the ceremony. May we have any leftover cake brought to dinner for us to enjoy for dessert?
ADue to health and safety regulations, we are not able to bring cake back into the dining room once it has left the galley; therefore, we are unable to serve leftover cake at dinner.
QMay I bring my own cake topper?
AYes. You may provide your own cake topper given that it is no larger than 6 inches in diameter and will rest atop the cake. No foreign objects may pierce the cake due to United States health code regulations aboard the ship.

QThere are children joining us for the wedding celebration. Can they join us at Palo?
AFor the enjoyment of all of our adult guests, Palo is reserved for guests ages 18 and older and no exceptions can be made.
