Located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, near the Magic Kingdom theme park, the pavilion opened on July 15, 1995.

The non-denominational chapel seats up to 300 guests and is only available through Disney's Fairytale Weddings & Honeymoons program. According to Disney, the site can host up to six ceremonies at the Wedding Pavilion per day. The Disney Wedding Program can host weddings in many locations across Walt Disney World's Properties, but the Wedding Pavilion is the most widely used.

In addition to the chapel, the venue also includes Franck's, a planning studio inspired by Martin Short's eccentric character in Disney's 1991 film Father of the Bride.

The Wedding Pavilion is equipped with three built-in video cameras, as well a control booth that allows the camera operators to capture everything that is going on during the ceremony.

Designers at Walt Disney Imagineering set the site so that Cinderella Castle is framed in two views: through a window behind the indoor altar where ceremonies are held, and through a hedge arch outside the chapel.

"Can accommodate up to 250 guests, depending on your chosen Collection."[1]
