QWhat if we have more people than the maximum number allowed?
The Memories Collection is designed for small parties of 6 people or fewer, including the bride and groom. If you feel that you might exceed the maximum number of guests, we encourage you to explore our other Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings Collections
. Our goal is to meet your needs, exceed your expectations and help you make your celebration perfect, no matter how few or many people you want in attendance. Your Wedding Coordinator can help you figure out which Collection is right for you.
QWhat is included in the In-room Romantic Celebration?
AFrom the moment you step into your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, you'll enter a world of romance and magic that Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse have helped plan the fun! They heard congratulations were in order, so they turned down the bed, sprinkled rose petals on the sheets and left chocolates on your pillows. Cozy bath towels, specially embroidered with your names, are draped across the foot of the bed, and a spa basket for 2 sits waiting for you. On the table nearby, a splash of Mickey-shaped confetti, a dozen pixie-dusted roses and a custom-matted photo of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse congratulate you Disney-style. As a special finishing touch, 3 lit candles glow around the room to set the mood. And, if you look closely, you'll find that Tinker Bell has sprinkled a little of her magic too! All of this is meant for you to enjoy, and every piece was selected for you to take home as keepsakes of your special day.
QWill there be chairs set up for the ceremony?
ABecause the Memories Collection is designed as a standing-only ceremony, chairs will not be set up.
QCan we add a private catered event to the Memories Collection?
Private catered events at Walt Disney World Resort are available for groups of 10 guests or more. Since the Memories Collection is designed for parties of 4 guests, in addition to the bride and groom, we cannot accommodate private catered events. However, we encourage you to contact Walt Disney World Dining at (407) WDW-DINE or online
to make a reservation for your party at one of our wonderful restaurants. (Please note: Wedding attire may not be worn inside Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.)
QCan we add enhancements to our Memories Collection event?
AYes. The Memories Collection is designed to allow the addition of floral, photography and videography enhancements. If there are further enhancements you would like to add to your event, we encourage you to explore our other Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings Collections.
QCan we order a boutonniere for the groom?

QCan we add a sand ceremony or circle of love?
AYes. These unique touches are available as enhancements to the Memories Collection.
QMy ceremony is outside. What if it rains?
AEven though rain can be a sign of good luck on a wedding day, at Walt Disney World Resort, our main concern is safety. In the case of inclement weather, your Wedding Coordinator will find the best possible indoor area for your ceremony at the Resort hotel hosting your event.
QWhat should I do if I would like to upgrade my photo elements?
AWe offer a range of options bound to meet your needs. Please consult your Wedding Coordinator to learn more about adding photography enhancements to your event.
QIs there a rehearsal for my ceremony?
ABecause Memories Collection weddings are small events, a formal rehearsal is not necessary. Prior to the ceremony, your Wedding Coordinator will make sure that all parties are comfortable and will facilitate the flow of events so that your ceremony is as close to perfect as possible.
QOn the day of the event, when and where will I meet my Wedding Coordinator?
AYour Wedding Coordinator will meet you in the lobby of the Resort hotel hosting your ceremony. The time and location will be arranged and confirmed prior to your ceremony date. Your on-site Wedding Coordinator may or may not be the same person who assisted you in planning the event, but all of our Wedding Coordinators have skills and personalities that should help you feel completely comfortable and at ease.
QWhat benefits will my guests receive?
ADisney's Fairy Tale Weddings will provide you with a wedding website that lets you share all the details with your guests. Through this site, they will be able to purchase discounted Theme Park tickets, share ceremony information and view the photos following your ceremony.
QCan I wear my wedding dress into the theme parks?
AFor the safety of all parties involved, we do not allow wedding attire in our theme parks. You can, however, wear your wedding attire to any restaurant at Walt Disney World Resort or Downtown Disney area.
QWhen is the balance of my payment due? How may I pay and whom do I send it to?
