Big, big news! We officially have a new Disneyland wedding venue available for in-Park weddings. You can now get married at the Main Street Train Station!
Main Street Train Station ceremonies will take place prior to the park opening to the public, and includes the opportunity to take photos in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle! The ceremony will be followed by a brunch reception at one of The Disneyland Resort hotel ballrooms.
The information was distributed via flyers given to invited attendees of the Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Showcase earlier this week. An attendee provided me with images of the flyers.
It’s noted the ceremony includes technical support, harpist, officiant, and Main Street Fire Truck staged exit, and you can have up to 50 guests. Here’s an example timeline:
8:00am Castle Photoshoot
8:30am Escort to Hotel
1:00pm Brunch Concludes
(Optional Dinner Reception is available)
Ceremony Fee: $15,000
Base Decor Minimum Spend: $15,000
Food and Beverage Minimum: $10,000
So the pricing for the Main Street Train Station wedding is a minimum of $40,000. That total does not include tax and gratuity.
It has also been confirmed Starcade in Tomorrowland is available for wedding receptions DURING Park hours, or after Park hours. Very exciting! I already covered this here.
There is also a new wedding venue option in Disney California Adventure. The Disney Jr stage (“Disney Theater”) in the Hollywood Backlot area can essentially be transformed into any wedding vision, very similar to Stage 17 across the way.
With Disney Theater, you’ll have your ceremony and pre-reception at a hotel venue, and the Disney Theater reception. The venue holds between 50-100 guests. It looks like you can potentially have this event during regular Park operating hours. Here’s the example timeline from the flyer:
6:30pm Pre-reception (usually the ceremony is 30 minutes which makes me wonder if this should really be 6pm)
11:30pm Reception Concludes
You can also add-on a ride experience ($4000 = $9000) or a private World of Color showing ($30,000). No, that price is not a typo.
Ceremony Fee: $4,000
Food and Beverage Minimum: $300 per guest
Reception Base Package: $15,000
Reception Base Decor Minimum Spend: $10,000
The pricing for a Disney Theater wedding is a minimum of $44,000 with 50 guests. That total does not include tax and gratuity.
Remember that in-Park events require the use of Disney’s preferred vendors. This includes photographer, floral and decor, DJ, and any other entertainment. No outside vendors are permitted. All venues, offering, and prices are subject to change at any time.
After last year’s price increases for Castle weddings and Animation Building receptions, it’s refreshing to see some Park options being offered for a lower price.
What do you think about these new wedding venues?
