If you want to celebrate your big day Disney-style, but don’t want to pay the premium price of $10,000+ for your Disney wedding package, you can get married on the Disney Cruise Line for a more affordable rate. Disney Cruise Line wedding packages can accommodate for up to 18 guests plus the couple, and are available for most three-, five- and seven-night cruise itineraries.
Here’s what you need to know when planning a Disney wedding on Disney’s Cruise Line:
Disney Cruise Line Wedding Ceremony Locations
You can choose from two ceremony locations for your Disney Cruise line wedding – an onboard ceremony, indoors or outdoors, or a Castaway Cay ceremony on a private tropical island.
The onboard wedding ceremony includes a solo musician, on-site wedding coordinator, wedding officiant, cake and champagne reception, dinner for two on board, dress steaming for the bride and a choice of fresh flowers for the bride and groom. The couple also receives a Disney Cruise Line Wedding Certificate and a $100 onboard stateroom credit that can be used towards spa treatments, shore excursions and other onboard activities.
The Castaway Cay wedding ceremony takes place on Disney’s private island and includes fresh flowers for the bride and groom, an officiant to perform the ceremony, an on-site wedding coordinator, a cake and champagne reception with a two-tier wedding cake, dinner for two on the night of the wedding, a special wedding gift, and dress steaming service for the bride. The couple booking this ceremony location also gets a Disney Cruise Line Wedding Certificate and a $100 onboard stateroom credit that can be used towards spa treatments, shore excursions and onboard activities.
Upgrade Options for a Disney Cruise Line Wedding
Couples that want to enhance their Disney Cruise Line wedding experience can choose from several floral arrangement upgrades, photography packages and cosmetology and spa services. Spa and salon treatments are available at the Vista Spa and Salon on board, and couples can choose from a variety of signature treatments to prepare for their big day, and to relax after the event.
Costs of a Disney Cruise Line Wedding Package
All Disney Wedding Cruise line weddings are priced as an add-on service to the existing cruise package, so you will need to make reservations for your cruise as usual, then select the wedding services. The cost of an onboard wedding ceremony is $2,500, and the cost of the Castaway Cay wedding is $3,500. Disney Cruise line weddings can be booked up to 12 months in advance of the departure date. A Florida Marriage License is included in all Disney Cruise Line Wedding packages, and the legal aspects of obtaining the license are handled before the ship leaves the port.
