Disney Wedding Series: Canada Pavilion Courtyard

A Disney Fairytale Wedding is something many would be princesses dream of from the time that they are little, and why not? Walt Disney World offers a vast array of venues and locations for everything that your heart desires. Disney Fairytale Weddings offers two classifications, Escape Weddings which have a smaller number of guests and the couple picks from a standard set of options, and do not include a reception, but instead offer a cake cutting and toast. In contrast, a Wishes Wedding is a fully customized event limited only by your dreams, and your checkbook. One of the few venues that hosts both of these categories is the Courtyard in Epcot's Canada.

Up the stairs and out of view from prying eyes, secluded in this rustic Canadian landscape is a charming courtyard. Tucked away in the back of the pavilion, along side the imagineered Canadian Rockies, cascading waterfalls and fresh pine trees it becomes a serene setting for your outdoor ceremony. Your Guests stroll through a quiet Canadian town that curls up along the backside of Canada's towering chateau breathing in storybook romance.

Wishes Collection ceremonies can be held here at 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., and 10:00 a.m, 12:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 5:00 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. If there are no Wishes Brides in the time slot, the Canada location is open seven days a week for Escape Brides in the 9:00 a.m. time slot only. The Canada Courtyard is the only in Park location available to be used for weddings in the Escape Collection. Allowing up to 18 guests, this location offers the maximum head count an Escape Wedding can have.

Escape Brides have several nearby options for a post wedding brunch at restaurants like Beach Club's Cape May Cafe, Boardwalk Inn's Kouzinna. After a quick change out of the gown, even Norway's Akershus Princess Breakfast would continue the fairytale. Wishes Collection bride & grooms have a huge selection of post-ceremony reception sites and the opportunity to work with a coordinator to plan their perfect party.

Guests attending a wedding at the Canada location require special transportation to the ceremony site via Disney Charter Bus that can be arranged with your Fairytale Wedding Consultant. Wishes Weddings at all locations can be booked 12 months in advance of the event date (based on availability). For Escape Wedding events, all available locations can be booked up to eight (8) months in advance. Visit Disney's Fairytale Weddings Website for more information.

Yacht Club Gazebo!
I was married there 16 years ago. Used to be called an intimate wedding. My sister was married on a balcony at Wilderness Lodge. Both amazing locations!

Is there a way to get an estimated amount difference between the Escape series and the Wishes series weddings? I'm still in the daydreaming stage and don't want to bother planners on the Disney Weddings site who are working with actual brides. Howevet, it would be nice to know though so I can pre-plan while I daydream!

Hi River! www.disneyweddings.com/ is the best way to get an idea of the costs involved. However if you Google Disney Weddings you'll find lots of other websites where Brides are discussing their Disney Weddings and what the costs have been.
