You can not wear your dress to any park right? Or is it just to magic kingdom? I've been seeing a pic of a wedding party on the tower or terror and it's amazing.

The Escape package does not include a meal. It does include the toast and cake cutting.

You are not allowed to wear wedding attire inside any of the theme parks, unless you are doing a Bridal Portrait Shoot through Disney Fairy Tale Weddings, or are having a wedding event (again, through Disney Fairy Tale Weddings) inside the theme park.

Good luck with your planning!

This https://www.disneyweddings.com/florida/escape/ will give you more information about Escape weddings.
Disney Fairytale Weddings can set up attractions as part of in park wedding events, that's probably what happened in the photos that you saw.
Escape brides can have their coordinator help them arrange a reception or dessert party.

At DLR a meal is included with the escape package. Not sure why that would be different in Florida.

Because WDW and Disneyland offer very different venues, amenities and options and have very different operating costs. At WDW, the Escape package includes photography; at Disneyland it doesn't, because there is no Disney photography department. WDW's package also includes transportation and annual passes, which are not included in Disneyland's Escape Package. Yet WDW's basic Escape package is cheaper than Disneyland's. There are more differences than similarities between the two departments, despite their sharing a name and executive team.

Would you be upset if you went all the way to Florida for a wedding and didn't get a lunch or dinner?

I could be wrong, but I think you can still book a private dining meal as an Escape bride.

Your wedding planner can give you options on a private dining event with various menus or you can book a dinner at the restaurant of your choice. If it's not inside a park you may wear your wedding attire.

Ultimately I just want people to have fun, so even just covering the tab of dinner would be smart. Thanks I didn't think of that.

I just need some bride and groom pictures at night with the fireworks. Where do you think the best place to do that would be?

Last July DH and I had an escape wedding. Our guests traveled from Canada and would have been happy whether we had a dinner or not. We did treat our guests to dinner at 'ohana. We times it so we would be able to watch wishes from the beach, but dinner ran long so we watched from the restaurant, which ended up being even better because they pump in the music. I'm not sure because this is the only time I've watched the fireworks from there, but you may be able to get fireworks pictures from the beach at the poly.

Another great way to ensure you got fireworks pictures would be to do a Wishes cruise on pontoon boats or the Grand1 yacht. You could bring your photographer with you and get neat shots with reflections on the water like these: http://disneyweddingpodcast.com/2012...works-cruises/
