Trip Report ~ Day 5 (Saying goodbye to the Dream)

Day 5 ~ Sunday, September 18, 2011 (Saying goodbye to the Dream)

Sunday we picked up our photos and photo albums from our photographer (note: the picture gallery area is extremely busy on the last day but we didn't have a choice). We asked for a picture with Robin, our photographer which was the last photo we took on the dream.

Here are some pictures of the actual photo albums and cases (sorry they aren't the best photos) that came with the photography package.

After we received our photos, we packed up the remaining items and said goodbye to the Dream.

Follow-up thought: We had set out our luggage the night before, so we only had our carry-on items when we left the Dream. The only problem was I had left out a t-shirt which wasn't large enough to go over my head/hair (I still had the wedding hair-do and wasn't ready to take it out as it still looked nice). I'm glad I had on a tank top the night before...

Cost of a Disney Wedding

A typical question I've gotten is how much does a Disney wedding cost anyways. So I've tried my best to realistically list out the expenses we had for the wedding. (Which is really scary by the way).

However, prices have changed for the cruise weddings since last year (up to 4,000 for a Castaway Cay ceremony). And other costs will be dependent on individual circumstances.

Cruise Costs

We were on a 3-day cruise on the Dream. In a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah Category 5D, Cabin 6070

Cruise: $978.00
Castaway Cay Ceremony: $3,500.00
Government Taxes and Fees: $91.76
Extra Guest Fee ($20 per person x 9 people): $180.00
Photography (Cruise line package $995 + 85 for CC fee): $1080.00
Hair Appointment: $100 + Tip
Standard Cruise Gratuities: $72

Subtotal Cruise Costs: $6001.76

Additional Wedding/Travel Costs

Wedding Dress: $100.00
Marriage License (Brevard County, FL Mail Away Application): $93.50
Roundtrip Airfare from St. Louis to Orlando: $478.80
Hotel Room (Night before cruise - Pop Century Resort): $62.16
Rental Van (from Disney to Cape for 5 people): $73.30

Subtotal Additional Costs: $707.76

Disneymoon Costs

Rental Car (from Cape to Disney just the 2 of us): $37.48
Disneymoon (All Star Music - 6 nights, Memories Package plus Dining, 7 Day Park Hopper): $1453.90
Estimated Tips for Dinner ($25 x 6 meals): $150 (sorry this is a best estimate on the high side)

Subtotal Disneymoon Costs: $1641.38

TOTAL: $8200.90 + Any Spending Money + Tip for Hair Dresser

I tear up whenever I hear "Welcome Home." Some people say I have "issues."
