I'm not sure! I would guess that it would be pretty nice during the day (maybe 60s and 70s) and a bit cooler at night.. Weather is just so unpredictable.. Just don't go during Thanksgiving week... I hear it gets pretty crowded during that time!
We've used the area by the water several times in late August and early December. We haven't been rained out yet but we may have just been lucky. I have been told that there is a room in the UK with a view of the show in case of rain. Usually by nightime the weather in the summer isn't too bad. We've gone in early December and swam and returned two weeks later wearing winter coats! I'm thinking that we went into the area to sit at around 8:00pm.
Another idea might be to rent the Grand1 Yacht from the Grand Floridian for a reception. You could time it to the Magic Kingdom fireworks and have a beautiful view of the hotels and castle.
Err... I think you have to wait until your 8 month mark for you planning packet, but I'm not sure.. It won't include any dining options, as far as I know.. If you want to get creative and do something on the Grand One (which is totally possible. A good friend of mine did it) or an Illuminations party, you will have to contact the Grand Floridian Private Dining (for the yacht) or Epcot Events (I think that's what it's called) for the Illuminations party.. I think Andrea has the Epcot contact info on her site.. Not positive though.. I forgot if you said you joined the Disneymooners or not. If you haven't, do it! LOL!! You can ask them for all your options, because they know more than I do about it..
You must go to Disney a lot! You lucky gal!!!!! I would love to go to Disney all the time!!!!
I did join disneymooners, except I can't access it from work.....those damn firewalls!
I've just started to muddle through some of the stuff I've gotten. My home computer is sooo slow. I wish I could get into it at work, I've got an awesome computer & fast! I guess I just need an entire day to glue myself to my home computer and get all my questions answered ...wishful thinking!
I would just make a post saying, "Hey Intimate Brides!" and start asking away.. Someone should be able to help you out... I've got a friend who is the Intimate wedding queen.. LOL! She isn't on Disneymooners anymore, but I could see if she would answer your questions.. She knows all about the private dining thing at the Grand Floridian.. She's the one who used the yacht (she used this for desserts I think; she had her dinner at Victoria & Albert's private room)...
I had a friend do this at the Boardwalk. She had a small wedding for about 15 guests in the pavillion and it turned out beautifully.
Might I also recommend the Boardwalk for your accomodations during the wedding/honeymoon. I've stayed at various Disney resorts and this is by far my FAVORITE. My favorite room is 4259, in the corner overlooking the bay. You can see fireworks from the Magic Kingdom directly in front of you and Illuminations off to the right.
I can't imagine a more magical place for a ceremony!
Just wondering what the packages for wyndham included and what price were you quoted. when you say that disney would allow you to marry there, does that include all of the disney package options? I am planning a disney wedding for June 2005. My plans right now are for the yacht club gazebo, but I just learned about Wyndham and am kind of curious. Do you know where there may be better pictures of the ceremony sites?
Does anyone know of other Disney resorts to have the ceremony and reception at. I've been looking into the Wyndham Palace Resort and Spa. I was told by WDW that I could have my intimate wedding there if I wanted to because it is a Disney Resort. However, I did receive info from the hotel itself and the wedding package they offer. It of course doesn't offer all the things the intimate package offers, however, it is much cheaper and includes a private dinner reception which is something I was concerned about. Any suggestions?
The intimate package doesn't include dinner and it sounds like we would have to make reservations at a local/resort restaurant and use a "priority seating" ticket. Does anyone know anything about this? It sounds like our party will have to wait with everyone else to get seated. Plus, from everything I read, you cannot wear wedding attire at most of the restaurants...which of course I want to wear. If I'm going to do the dinner reception at a restaurant, then I definetly want a private dining area and am not sure who offers both things.
I wasn't quoted a price, however, if you call them directly, they will send you a package of information. That's what I did. Unfortunately soon after I requested the info, we decided not to have a disney wedding and I threw everything away. I do remember mentioning it to the sales person I spoke to at WDW and she said working with the wyndham would not be a problem. Sorry I couldn't be more help to you.
