Married in the magic kingdom: Disneyland Paris weddings ceremonies, packages and collections

If you’ve always wanted to say “I do” at the place where dreams come true, Disneyland Paris has joined with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings to make it happen — provided you’ve got the budget to match.

Launching this week with convenient timing for Valentine’s Day, these new Disneyland Paris wedding packages finally add the Parisian resort to Disney’s existing range of wedding and honeymoon packages.

Two “collections” are available: Romantic Wedding Collections, which are preconfigured packages in set locations, and Royal Wedding Collections, which offer a bespoke service to plan your Disneyland Paris ceremony with your own Disney Wedding Planner.

Three options within the Romantic collections offer Disney’s Newport Bay Club, Disneyland Hotel and Disneyland Park itself as locations.

And the prices? “From €32,000” for the shores of Lake Disney right up to €55,000-plus for a celebration beside Sleeping Beauty Castle.

If you’ve dreamt of a ceremony complete with an air of adventure, consider your wish granted.

Castle Courtyard – The ultimate happily-ever-after celebration

Every once in a while, love gives us a fairy tale. And the most eternal fairy tale wedding of all is a Royal Wedding. Imagine your ceremony right next to Sleeping Beauty Castle, surrounded by extraordinary magic. Imagine yourself here, at a one-of-a-kind wedding your heart has always dreamt about.

from 55 000 €

Though promotional photos show a marriage ceremony set out in the middle of Central Plaza, the package above actually uses the more intimate Castle Courtyard, within Fantasyland, as its location.

It’s not clear how Disneyland Paris might manage these ceremonies in the park — could they be early morning or after closing, or would a small part of the park really be cordoned off to make it happen?

Nevertheless, at the prices being asked — and which no doubt many people will see fit to pay — it’s about time they capitalised on what could be a highly lucrative additional revenue stream.

Since all marriages in France can only be legally recorded in a mairie, or town hall, with quite stringent conditions for those taking part, these ceremonies offered by Disneyland Paris will only be symbolic in nature.

  • You’d have to be a fool to spend that kind of money on a symbolic ceremony.

  • You’d have to be a fool to spend it on a wedding in general, but is not uncommon in the US for people who do destination weddings to do the courthouse wedding either just as a couple or with a witness or two, and then do the “wedding ceremony” in front of their guests wherever they want. This prevents them from having to deal with the legalities of the locale where they want to hold the fancy ceremony/reception. I’ve even seen people sign fake marriage certificates at their destination wedding so that they could keep that as part of the ceremony without it being legal. I believe even in the US parks, many of the ceremonies are symbolic or the bride/groom have to find their own wedding officiant, it is not provided by Disney. Personally I would rather buy a car or pay off my mortgage, but given that the average cost of a wedding in the US is 26k, Disney is wise to try to tap into this demographic to spend money at DLP.
