Disney Fairy Tale Weddings Showcase

Whatever Your Fairy Tale Wish...They Have the Magic to Make Them Come True...
Today’s post is all about the 2020 Disneyland Wedding Showcase!


*Disclosure* I was invited by Disneyland and Disney Weddings to attend their 2020 Wedding Showcase at the Disneyland Resort. I was given comped admission as a media invitee. All opinions stated below are my own.

Disneyland Bride forever
Disney Weddings, specifically Disneyland Weddings have such a special place in my heart. The entire Disney Weddings team & company have been a part of so many of our milestones over the past (almost) 10 years from weddings, anniversaries and more. I’m a proud Disneyland bride alumni of 2010. Peter and I had our Disney Wedding at the resort almost a decade ago! We held our ceremony at the Brisa Courtyard at the Grand Californian Hotel and reception inside Disney California Adventure Park’s Animation Academy. You can see more HERE.

Months after our big day, we were given the opportunity of a lifetime to work with Disney Weddings for their 20th anniversary campaign. We were featured as their “Disneyland” couple and took part in a photo and and advertisement campaign that ran across their social media channels and in wedding magazines nationwide in 2011.
It was the most crazy, magical experience working on this campaign for Disney Weddings!
5 years later, we experienced more Disney Weddings magic for our 5 year anniversary. This time though it was a surprise Vow Renewal/anniversary party inside Disneyland. It was a complete surprise on my end as the event was all planned out by PB and the amazing Disneyland weddings team. You can read about that HERE.

Over the years Disney weddings has created true magic for us. Some of the Disneyland based team have even grown to become like extended family to us. For this reason, it was such a complete honor to be invited to this year’s wedding showcase, but this time to return and check out all the fun from a “invited guest” standpoint.

Showcase event
What better way to kick off the month of love than with this event! The annual showcase took place on February 1st this year and featured Disneyland resort ceremony and reception venues dressed up to the nines for attendees to tour, delicious menu items to sample, mingle with preferred vendors and more! The showcase is such a great way for future weddings couples to come and check out all that disney weddings has to offer!

Blue Sky Suite
As part of the media invite, a handful of fellow Disney bloggers, myself included, were invited for a special look at what Disney Weddings and their showcase had to offer. We were first escorted up to the the “Blue Sky Suite” a mid century modern styled executive event space where we were introduced to some of the talented weddings team. Once there, we were given a chance to try some menu items that couples can add onto their events. Disney Weddings is wonderful in the fact that the sky is the limit on adding your own touches to your big day. Have a favorite park treat? A cherished family dish you want to serve? A special dietary request? Disney will go above and beyond to cater to your needs!
Here in the suite we tried some crossover park treats that brides and grooms can add like the coveted Mickey and Minnie cake pops from the parks to a Mickey pretzel bar! 

Showcase Floor
We were then whisked down to the main showcase floor which included an official Disney Fairy Tale Weddings merchandise shop! There’s merchandise to help any couple kick off their happily ever after from wine tumblers, clothing, jewelry, accessories and more! The highlight though? The exclusive Disney Weddings enehgsment ring line coming soon! These stunning rings feature some hidden disney details like the signature coach, castle and even Mickey himself!
On the main floor guests were also able to meet with different disney vendors from photographers, officiants, dj’s and more. The disney weddings team was also around for chat with couples. It’s a great way for brides and grooms to meet with potential vendors and their weddings team.

Ceremony Sites
The beauty of Disney Weddings is the unique locations where your wedding ceremony can be held . At the Disneyland Resort there’s specific outdoor and indoor locations that are not only gorgeous but completely magical. I’ve seen tons of weddings happen at these locations and no two are ever alike. 

Rose Court Garden
This venue can be used as both a ceremony or reception site. I loved how it was featured during the showcase with the rugs lining the aisle, it was so cozy and chic!

Adventure Lawn
This grassy area was the dreamiest! The meandering aisle way... the ombré chairs? Ugh, a dream! And if only this photo had smell o vision, because the sweet smell of the floral was enough to make us all let out a “sigh” of pure joy!

Reception Venues
Disneyland Weddings has an array of reception locations throughout the resort. From in park locations to their many ballrooms and open spaces, the possibilities are endless! We toured two locations within the Disneyland hotel in the Magic Kingdom Ballroom and the Sleeping Beauty Pavilion. 

The Magic Kingdom Ballroom
This location was breathtaking! Disney is great at taking your thematic vision and making it come true! The draping, the elegant floral and the subtle disney touches made this room so whimsical. If couples are hesitant about a standard ballroom reception, I say don’t be, at least here at disney weddings there’s nothing to worry about! There’s so many way to dress up and make these spaces your own! I mean, just look this space!

The Sleeping Beauty Pavilion 
A popular reception spot due to its unique layout with the floor to ceiling windows! This is another example of a room where I’ve seen and also have attended previous functions in. There’s never been a time where this room has ever look the same. From custom lighting, table linens, chairs... it’s another example of how creative couples can get with their Disney Wedding and design element.

Disney Dreams Come True
What I love most about Disney Weddings is their ability to make every couple’s wedding dreams come true! No matter what your vision may be, they will work with their couples to create their perfect day.

There’s an endless amount of possibilities for your big day. Want something simple and elegant? Done. Something over the top and extravagant, done and done. The planning team is great at working within your needs, your guests needs and your dreams to make it happen.

To Disney or not to Disney
What’s spectacular about Disney Weddings is the fact that just because you’re getting married at a Disney Resort doesn’t mean that it has to be Mickey & Minnie related or a Cinderella type of fairytale. Some of the most elegant and fun events I’ve seen have been a Disney Wedding where he couple chose not to incorporate an overtly Disney theme. You can add in as many Disney elements like a Crystal Coach or major characters like Mickey to visit your event. Or you can opt for subtle to no Disney touches at all. There could be something as simple as a hidden Mickey in your floral or the simplest ways of adding a favorite park treat into your menu.

Something for Everyone
I often get asked about “how much does it cost?” Honestly, Disney Weddings have options for every type of budget. We’ve learned that the team will work within your means to create your dream day. 

The Disney Weddings planning team are some of the best in the business. During all of our events, they took care of us from start to finish. I guess that’s why we keep coming back to plan our milestone events with them. Nothing can top the disney weddings experience.

Happily Ever After Begins Now 
From personal experience, We can confirm that they will go above and beyond to make your day the best day ever.

A huge thank you to Disneyland and Disney Weddings for having me! Here’s to more happily ever after moments and magic for the future! 💜
