I was thinking of having my cake at a DP. I have seen some people do this but does anyone know if this is an extra fee or can be done by the staff? Also, this is a little off topic, but if I add a lunch reception, would it count towards the minimum expenditure and what's the approximate cost for a simple buffet or plating? (aka salad, breads, appetizer, basic entrees like chicken/shrimp, etc.) I know that's a little vague but I've seen the wedding catering menu on the disneycateredmenus website and was wondering if the prices were the same or similar at all going through DFTW.

You'd have to find out from your planner if this is an option, since there are rules surrounding the display of cakes at outdoor locations (in the parks). There's always a delivery fee for locations not at the Grand Floridian, but it seems like if it's going straight to the DP and not making a stop at the reception, there'd only be one fee.

It really depends on what you have on the menu. Sandwiches could be $50/person... steak, seafood and fancy action stations could push you to $150/person. Any food and beverage you have on the day of your wedding counts toward the overall minimum expenditure ($100/$125/$150). But only food served at that location counts toward the venue-specific food and beverage minimum.

Disney's Catered Events and Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings use different menus, but there is some crossover and, since you can customize anything, something you like on one can be used for the other.

Thanks for posting these! I still haven't gotten all my shots into Photobucket yet—saved me the trouble!

This is great! I love the idea of "screen printing" designs, if you will. A simple idea but very original

So far people who have asked about that one have been told it was a one-off created for the bridal showcase and they don't have a way to replicate it yet. However, I would imagine eventually one of the pastry chefs will be willing to attempt it, and I can't see it costing less than $50.
