    Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings has eliminated its seasonal pricing tiers at Walt Disney World and introduced new year-round prices for Memories, Escape and Wishes.

    Memories costs $3,500.

    Escape costs $7,000 for resort locations, $7,500 for Canada Terrace and $8,000 for the Wedding Pavilion.

    Wishes Ceremony Fees
    • $4,000 at resorts
    • $4,500 at parks
    • $5,000 at the Wedding Pavilion

    Wishes Per-person Food and Beverage Minimums

    • $140 at brunch
    • $165 at lunch
    • $190 at dinner

    Enhancement Minimums

    Resort Locations:
    • $5,000 on Tuesday & Wednesday
    • $8,000 on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday
    • $10,000 on Saturday
    Theme Park Locations:
    • $7,000 on Tuesday & Wednesday

    Hi @lurkyloo --
    Listening to your newest episode now and reviewing these pricing changes...For enhancement minimums for Wishes, do you know if the WP counts as a resort location?

    Any idea why they've gone back to year round prices as it wasn't that long ago they introduced seasonal pricing ?

    The Enhancement Minimum is dependent on where you have your reception, not your ceremony. So If you got married at the Wedding Pavilion and had a reception inside Epcot, you'd have to meet the higher Enhancement Minimum. If you got married at the WP and had your reception at the Grand Floridian Convention Center, you'd have the lower Enhancement Minimum.


    I'm guessing Seasonal Pricing was super-confusing for people and harder for them to administrate. It also could have been an interim strategy to make these new price hikes seem more palatable...

    Was the old enhancement minimum for theme park locations on a Saturday $10,000? I seem to remember this number from somewhere.. but I switched my reception location from the Contemporary to the GM Lounge after I signed my initial LOA and I didn't see a new enhancement minimum listed in the updated LOA.

    So if you had a hundred guests, and were looking at the wedding pavilion, you're looking at ballpark $35,000? ...OUCH.

    Saturday's enhancement minimum for all locations was $10,000 before the change. This change doesn't affect you if you've already signed a Letter of Agreement at the old prices.

    You could keep it to $24,000 if you did a Tuesday or Wednesday brunch.

    You could, but I'm a teacher and I hate the heat. Not that I'm getting married anytime soon, but I guess it would have to be February break or bust. Although let's get serious, my dream has always been the AA Rotunda.
