Hey all!

Our wedding lady (sorry, don't know what they're called . . . coordinator?) has suggested to DF and I to use The Living Seas pirate: for a reception for several reasons such as; approx. 50 guests, private reception, unique "Disney" location (DF's request) . . .

I have never been to Epcot (I always spend my time at the MK, hehehe) and know very little about the Living Seas pirate: (other than what I saw in an episode of Full house, hehehe). Has anyone had their reception at the Living Seas? Anyone ever dined there? Any photographs? ANY information would be so helpful.

I'm anticipating some potential problems for the Living Seas pirate: would be no DJ (I wouldn't think so) and heavy restrictions on favors and centerpieces since the location is inside a theme park. While I am flexible on reception location DF is being picky about this. Help please.

This is where my DF and I are going to have our reception. We love saltwater fish so much we have 4 tanks in our home :rotfl: so this was the perfect place for us. We just went for our site visit this December and took these pics. I'm sorry if they're a little dark. The wood in the room just makes it so pretty. We don't even think it needs much decorating at all. I saw a video from someone's reception a while back and they had a DJ in the Living Seas. They didn't have the dance floor put down. They just danced on the carpet.
We visited it right after a reception had taken place so that's why there's some christmas type stuff around.

This is the cocktail area.

This is really the only thing I didn't like about it. I forgot to ask my SM if this was always set up like this or not. We're not having a sea themed wedding so this really wouldn't go with it.

there are also af ew threads on this board with pics of the LS set-up. I had my reception there and for us it was our dream location. we saw it on a disney tour and new it was the place for us. your coordinator is right it is a unique location.

We had a Dj with 80 guests and we danced the night away on the carpeted floors. NO dance floor needed. The sound was great.

WOW! I knew I could count on the great people here at the boards for help! I had been looking at pictures from various Disney websites and wasn't seeing anything that showed a wedding reception set up or even a good angle.

Namsupak: Thank you for sharing your pictures! I appreciate it ever so much! :worship: I don't think that most of the potential reception sites need much as far as deceorating is concerned but I come from a crafty family and I swear I have been thinking about centerpieces since I was 10 years old hehehe (every girl dreams of her wedding day, eh?). Very nice to see LS through another bride's eyes.

Luvndisney: I don't dance much and DF doesn't really like music (weird, yeah?) but DF and I have never ever had our first dance and at this point we're saving it for our wedding day. I also didn't want to worry about guests being bored so let them dance the night away. Your wedding looked beautiful and like you had so much fun. I'll be dreaming about my own wedding at the LS tonight. Thank you so much for sharing your special day. :hug:

TheSawas - we just had our reception there in December. Here's a link to our pics by Randy Chapman:

And here is the link to our video by Stan from STVS. This shows the room a bit. We had a DJ and no dance floor. We never missed it either. It's a beautiful room and we wouldn't have changed anything. Good luck!!
