Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons is a program offering wedding and honeymoon services to couples at the Disneyland Resort in California, the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort in Hong Kong, and on the Disney Cruise Line. It operates within the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts segment of the company. They have hosted over 30,000 weddings since 1991.[1]

Since 1995, Disney has also offered wedding and vow renewal ceremonies at Disney's Wedding Pavilion, a facility which accommodates up to 300 guests at Walt Disney World Resort. They also offer weddings at other sites at their theme parks and resort hotels. In 2007 wedding designer David Tutera joined the Disney team to create the Couture Collection.[2] Wedding themes vary from Cinderella to safari to international styles.[3] Recent awards include Modern Bride's Top 25 Trendsetter Award (2008), The Knot's "Best of Weddings" (2007–2009), and Orlando Sentinel: 2008 101 Best of Orlando - Best Wedding Venue 2008.[4]

Commitment ceremonies[edit]

In 2007, Disney began offering commitment ceremonies for same-sex couples.[5] Previously, the company only had allowed couples with a valid California or Florida marriage license to purchase its wedding packages.

Disneyland Paris[edit]

No wedding program is offered in Disneyland Paris as prohibited by the French law (The "Code civil" reserves the right to marry someone to public officers that is generally proceeded in Town halls) but an honeymoon program is still possible.
