Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings Fast Facts

  • Now, more than 2,000 couples tie the knot each year at Walt Disney World Resort. Since September 1991, Walt Disney World Resort has hosted more than 20,000 weddings.
  • Couples have traveled from every state in America and from international locations such as Japan, Saudi Arabia and the Netherlands to get married at Walt Disney World Resort.
  • At least twice during the ten year history of the Walt Disney World Marathon couples have stopped mid-race to get married in front of Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom.
  • A couple took the plunge, literally, on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney-MGM Studios while they tied the knot.
  • Some brides and grooms choose non-traditional methods of transportation to arrive at the ceremony such as on horseback, Aladdin's magic carpet, Cinderella's glass coach, a horse-drawn carriage or vintage automobile.
  • According to wedding industry experts, Walt Disney World Resort is recognized as a top honeymoon destination.
  • The sky is the limit for themed weddings -- from an enchanting Cinderella-like wedding in Magic Kingdom or a Hollywood extravaganza in Disney-MGM Studios to international-themed nuptials at Epcot and a safari-themed reception at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
  • The first wedding at Disney's Wedding Pavilion was televised live June 18, 1995, on Lifetime Television as part of its "Weddings of a Lifetime" series.
