Weddings are a vehicle for the extravagant. Ice sculptures, flower walls, and champagne toasts when most couples have a beer budget. But there’s something about getting married that makes two reasonable people think, “Let’s overextend ourselves to show our loved ones that we appear to be more ‘together’ than we actually are.” And now, you can take that extravagance to the next level.
Disney World is now offering nighttime weddings at The Magic Kingdom where you legitimately have the entire park to yourself. They’re describing it as a “real-life fairytale” which is accurate if your version of a fairytale is getting married in the middle of a corporate metropolis aimed to squeeze money out of today’s youth. Alright, maybe that’s a little harsh, but you can’t deny that there are some hints of fact sprinkled in. Disney has released a blog post on their Disney Weddings site explaining everything.
Step into your very own fairy tale with an exclusive evening ceremony and reception that takes place in a setting like no other. Imagine saying “I do” in front of the iconic Cinderella Castle and celebrating with a reception amid the magic of Fantasyland at night. With this highly customizable wedding experience, the beauty is in the details. Simply tell us your heart’s desire and let us dream up something that’s uniquely you.
This tailor-made fairy tale takes place after Magic Kingdom park closes. Treasure your nighttime wedding in this land of wonder and delight—and create memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
They go on to explain that this offers the couples something “truly magical and unforgettable,” with features such as no crowds and Cinderella’s Coach with access to Main Street, U.S.A. They also released a 30-second video showing just how “magical” the experience can actually be.
Okay, yeah, sure. It’s magical, I guess. But the weddings can only happen after 11 p.m. which will really put a damper on anyone over the age of 24 who wishes to attend, and there’s a large contingency of people out there who believe that Disney World should never be involved in any nuptials, engagements, or honeymoons. And as much as Aladdin and Simba shaped me into the man I am today, I can’t say that I disagree. .
