How much does a Disneyland wedding cost?

As of 2017, the official Disneyland resort offers two wedding options:  the Wishes package or the Escape package, each with its own inclusions.  The Wishes package, regardless of how you customize it, will start at $15,000, while the Escape package will start at $6,500.  The Wishes package will require a minimum of 18 guests, including the couple, while the Escape package will all up to 18 guests, in addition to the couple.  From what we researched, by the time you factor in the minimums and the contracted room blocks, the costs can range from as little as $8,000 for the Escape package to more than $24,000+ for the Wishes package.  These prices, as with any wedding, can greatly increase depending on the add-ons you add to your customized wedding package.

The Wishes package, being the pricier option, will be based on the number of guests, your food choices, the floral, decor, music, entertainment and if any additional day services are required.  The official website highly recommends you use their official calculator to figure out what you may pay.  To help you budget, we create a table to show you what it may cost.  These prices can greatly vary and will apply to the Escape package only:

Ceremony (ALL ceremonies must be accompanied by a reception)- Venues at Disneyland® Hotel - $3,200*
- Venues at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa - $3,200*
- Morning Sleeping Beauty's Castle Ceremony - $62,200**
- Evening Sleeping Beauty's Castle Ceremony and Theme Park - Reception - $180,000***
- Morning Theme Park Ceremony - $45,145***

- Adding Major Domo to the Coach is an additional $1,200.00*
- Vis-à-vis Carriage - $2,000*
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Vist- Starts at $1,700+

According to This Fairytale Life, the cost of the Escape Package is $6,500, and this package is sufficient enough for a small ceremony and reception.  With this package, however, you must also guarantee a five-night room block, which will increase the price to $8,000.  The Wishes package, on the other hand, will start at $15,000 as the official website mentions, but this price is only for those who get married Monday through Thursday.  If you were to get married on a Friday or Sunday, the cost increases to $18,000 and to $21,000 if you wanted a Saturday.  The minimum, when the contracted hotel blocks are factored in, will increase the minimum Wishes package to $18,000 to $24,000+

In-park weddings are available, but this option is much more than the two packages mentioned prior.  According to our research, an early morning castle wedding at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle can start at $50,000, while an after-hours evening reception can start at $80,000.  If you were to have a ceremony and a reception after hours, most prices will start at $100,000 and increase from there.

Disneyland wedding overview

The Escape package will include an officiant for the ceremony, a CD player for your music, a fresh floral bouquet, a three-course plated luncheon or dinner, two-tiered wedding cake, an on-site coordinator and hosted self-parking.  This package is only available Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays.

What are the extra costs?

Additional floral options are available for the bridal party, with prices ranging from $15 for a boutonniere to as much as $100 for a customized bouquet.

Ceremony and reception enhancements are available for an additional fee.

A DJ for the reception can be added, with prices starting at $1,995.

Disney characters can visit your wedding for 30 minutes.  These appearance prices start at $1,700.

All prices don’t include taxes, fees or gratuity.

Tips to know:

To start the wedding process, the best way to get started is by calling the Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings office at 714.520.7079.  When calling, Disney will ask for your email address and will send you a PDF brochure with basic pricing and more information.  After reviewing this information, they will then ask you to call back and they will connect you with an authorized sales coordinator.

Disney recommends booking your wedding at least one to six months before your wedding date.  All reservations are based on availability and approval.

A $3,5000 deposit will be required to book your celebration date.

How can I save money?

Work with your coordinator because these packages can greatly vary in pricing depending on how you customize them.  If you’re on a certain budget and it’s within reason, they should be able to work with you.
