They say Disney World is the happiest place on Earth, so it's safe to assume getting married there puts you on the path to happily ever after. And if that seems like a fairy tale, well, it's fitting — because you can now have your wedding in front of Cinderella Castle. I kid you not. So if you've ever dreamed of letting your inner princess reign supreme (which, let's face it, we all have), here's your chance.
According to Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings blog, where this fortuitous news was first posted, getting married in front of Cinderella's majestic castle will turn fantasy into reality. And that sounds about right, eh? In case you're already plotting a reconnaissance mission, the precise location of Cinderella Castle is the East Plaza Garden in the heart of the Magic Kingdom park. There, in the midst of the sights and sounds of Main Street, U.S.A., "your guests will delight in magic and wonder." Uh, yes please! Looks like I now know where I'll be renewing my vows in the near future.
As if the mere availability of such a magical venue wasn't enough, the wonder doesn't end there. Should you book East Plaza Garden for your wedding, you will legit be able to ride to the aisle in high style as a passenger of Cinderella's horse-drawn coach. As for your groom, he'll get the royal treatment too, in a classic, turn-of-the-century Main Street vehicle. If a dream is a wish your heart makes, that dream that you wish definitely just came true.
So if you're dying to tie the knot in front of Cinderella Castle, I feel you. The following pics and video are proof enough that getting married at East Garden Plaza might actually make your transformation into a Disney princess complete.
There is a bit of fine print, however. Disney Fine Art Photography is required for this venue — and, oh yeah, it's unlikely that chatty little woodland creatures will help you with your hair and makeup on the big day. Plus, since it's entirely possible every newly-engaged couple on the planet may be inquiring about this locale for their own "I Dos," you may have to book way in advance to score your own Disney dream wedding at Cinderella Castle. But I think we can all agree it's totally worth it.
