As a newly engaged chap myself, I can tell you that I have learned more about the words ‘venue’, ‘nuptuals’, ‘registries’ and more in the past few months than I have heard in my lifetime. But, even if I had missed it when this came through my email from our good friends at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, the high pitch squeal from the other room was a clue. If you are like us, one of the many couples looking to get married in the near (or even not so near) future in Orlando, the best place in the U.S. to get married according to Wallethub, there is a new option to consider in 2021 with the opening of the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, located in the heart Walt Disney World Resort. Of course, with both of our families being Italian, Alessa’s side especially, I think the planning will be well taken care of.
This new 14-story, 349-room hotel, opening later this summer as part of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin complex, will offer indoor and outdoor event space including a one-of-a-kind, top-floor event space – perfect for an unforgettable wedding overlooking Walt Disney World Resort. The resort’s Vue ballroom is a nearly 4,000-square-foot space seating up to 160 guests, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a 1,000-square-foot outdoor terrace offering breathtaking views of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin as well as EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Vue will also offer spectacular views of several Walt Disney World fireworks shows.
For couples looking for a one-stop shop wedding ceremony and reception venue, (I have to say I like the sound of that) the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin can also host ceremonies at a variety of locations throughout the resort including several scenic outdoor spaces such as the resort’s private white-sand beach, lakefront terrace or wedding courtyard.
To ensure a smooth wedding day, the resort recently hired Certified Wedding Planner Jennifer Sharpe to oversee the wedding experience. Sharpe has extensive wedding and event-planning experience including roles with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons and The Ritz-Carlton.
“The Vue event space is unlike any other I’ve offered in my career,” said Sharpe. “This unique ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous views of Disney will create a reception that will be picture perfect in every way. Combined with the resort’s overall convenient, walkable location and the award-winning food and beverage offerings, this option is second to none for those looking for a truly magical wedding experience.”
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin and Walt Disney World Swan Reserve make for an ideal destination wedding setting with more than 2,600 hotel rooms, a location within walking distance to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios and surrounded by entertainment and dining options galore. Within a short walk, guests can enjoy 6 pools, more than 40 restaurants, numerous recreational activities, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf, and Disney’s BoardWalk. Hotel guests also receive complimentary transportation throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
The resort also features numerous suites, perfect for out-of-town families, as well as two luxuriously appointed Presidential suites, which can create an unforgettable stay for the newlywed couple.
As a hotel on Disney property, couples who want to enhance the magic of their special day have special access to add guest appearances from Disney characters to their reception.
The Vue at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is now taking wedding reservations for late summer 2021. For more information or to make an inquiry, visit www.swandolphin.com/weddings or call 407-934-1883.
