    Just wanted to say, I had a dessert party with my wedding, and it was one of the BEST decisions I made!!! It ended the day perfectly... we were at Eau de France, the lower French island, and all my guests were very impressed and excited. We had the build your own ice cream sundae bar, along with cookies and brownies and fresh fruit, and the fireworks were just amazing. It was the perfect way to end the day. Do it, do it, DO IT!!!!!

    If you have an escape package, adding a DP will trigger a $7500 minimum spend. Just FYI.

    (It's an idea I totally advocate for, though).

    There are locations suitable for groups of your size at Epcot, and Sago Cay at the Grand Floridian is also good for small groups. :thumbsup2

    They changed the rule so that now it only applies if your ceremony is on a Saturday or a Sunday. Also, the minimum goes up to $8,000 in 2014. :thumbsup2

    Could you tell me which locations in Epcot can be used for a party that small?
    We going to Florida next week so we can have a look and see what we want but I can't talk to anyone at disney yet as its more than 9 months away!!

    If you keep it to 10 people, UK Pubside and Bonsai Terrace (in Japan) are good choices. Otherwise, they will probably suggest the standing-room-only locations like Parisian Point, Vikings Landing, Canada Overlook and Kazbah Point. You can see photos of all these locations here: http://disneytravelbabble.com/disney-weddings/wdw-venue-photos/

    I just wanted to pipe in that we did exactly that! And we were an Escape wedding too!

    Ceremony and cake cutting were at SBP, we then had our dinner "reception" in the Wine Room at Jiko and then went back to EPCOT for our DP in Morocco...
    We used vans to get everyone to dinner and back, except for DH and I who took the vintage car to AKL.
    Then we just got a limo from AKL back to EPCOT (backstage) where we were escorted in with our guests.
    The DP is really a fabulous way to end the day/night.

    I am considering having an Escape wedding but the guest list is challenging to say the least. Does anyone know if I added a dessert party to the Escape is it limited to 20 guests as well?
