NEW In-Park Disneyland Wedding Option: Mark Twain Riverboat!

Imagine getting married during a private ride on the Rivers of America before Disneyland Park opens to the public … if this is your dream, it is now a possibility!

This long rumored (and long desired) option is now official, as flyers advertising the experience were given out to guests at this year’s Disneyland Weddings Open House.

The early morning ceremony includes a ride on the Mark Twain Riverboat, followed by a private photo shoot at Sleeping Beauty Castle.

It’s noted the ceremony includes technical support, harpist, and officiant, and you can have up to 50 guests. It also notes this option is only available when Disneyland Park opens at 9am.

Here’s an example timeline:

6:45am Guests escorted to theme park from hotel
7:15am Ceremony with ride
8:00am Castle Photoshoot (for couple only. Guests will be escorted to the hotel.)
9:00am Brunch
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 Mark Twain Riverboat wedding is a minimum of $40,000. That total does not include tax and gratuity.

With the addition of the Main Street Train Station wedding option last year, I’m glad Disneyland is offering more in-park wedding opportunities for guests.
