Planning our honeymoon !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello all, sorry I haven't posted on here for a while I recently had a loss in the family and have been dealing with that, so disney wasn't really in my mind...... Anyway.

So as most of you know me and the future mrs Howell design, got engaged in dlp resort in February and have now set our wedding date for the 21st of March.

We did a lot of ummmming and ahhhhhing about where we wanted to honeymoon, first thought was California to see disneyland but we both felt we wanted a more relaxing trip and we want to do a lot on the west coast, we also thought of Japan but have agreed that we would like to head east after Shanghai is built and take in hong kong, Tokyo and Shanghai in one tour.

And so we have decided to head back to the world..... I can hear king ferguses in laws moaning from here Smile!!

So at the moment our plan is, we will leave our reception, check in to an airport hotel and fly with virgin the next day. We plan to fly in our wedding attire so we can get pictures at MK dressed up. We have looked at 7 days staying at wilderness lodge, woods view with the delux dinning plan. I know this is high season but we are really planning on early starts, resort afternoons and late nights.

So what are your thoughts and what would you change?

Hold on whilst I put masking tape over my in laws mouths..That's better... clapping Well I like the idea..I'am looking forward to our first stay at WL in October and if I was on my Honeymoon at WDW this would be the perfect resort..( check out the Honeymoon suite at WL ) Of course I wouldn't fly in my kilt for obvious reasons.. wink ...

Phil, just to let you know, They will not let your future bride in the Magic Kingdom in a formal wedding dress. You can have your photos taken by the castle about 6.00am or midnight once the park is closed. This can only be done by a Disney Wedding Photographer, cost is about $1500. You have to book it through Disney.

A Disney Honeymoon!!!! How wonderful! Don't forget your buttons once you arrive
And maybe something from Disney Florist?
The $1500 price tag is salty......but if you can swing it...I'd do it!!
What a fantastic picture that would be.....wedding clothes and the castle....so romantic

hey guys, thanks for the heads up, but as we are having a vintage wedding, my brides dress will not be a 'big' wedding dress. It will be more like the sort of thing the girls wear to dapper day but in white. do you think that would be okay? or do they just stop all white dresses?

How formal is the dress? If it resembles a wedding gown it will probably be a no go. However, I know I've seen weddings where the bride was in a simple, shorter white dress (example below) and I'd guess you could get away with that.

What if a bride goes to Bibidi Bobidi Boutique first? Will they eject a princess from the park? laugh

An Adult dressed as one, yes they will. They do not want anyone to closely resembling a character that someone may mistake as an actual character. I have seen postings of people not being allowed into the parks because of this. You can take your chances, but that's exactly what you will be doing. Ask yourself, could she be mistaken for a cast member/character in any way?

Ahh.. good point. I never thought of that. Kids probably wouldn't know the difference between the "real" princesses and the "guest" princesses. Well, at least I don't have to worry about that. laugh

Maybe an alternative idea would be to wear your attire to one of the resorts and have a photographer take pics from there...maybe the GF? Surely it's cheaper than $1500...

Otherwise, a WDW honeymoon sounds great, but if you're coming across the pond, I would try to stay longer to have several R&R days. Have you had deluxe dining before? Just make sure you book restaurants that you get your $$ worth...It's a lot of food unless you plan on doing several signature restaurants.

WL is very romantic in my opinion and a great choice!

You can have a professional photo shoot done at the resorts.

We saw a bride and groom getting photos taken (by Disney of course) at the castle before the park opened. We were there for the Marceline to Magic Kingdom tour.

Yes that's the only times they will do it, that is unless you buy the park out, which has been done!

I think we will be fine as my fiancee dress is a really simple white dress, it's not a giant gown.

We thought about 10 days but as we are in wdw for 14 days in October we thought 7 days is long enough in march we are going there to eat and to just be there, I know it seems weird but we can take or leave most attractions. For us the idea is just to be in a fun happy place to celebrate. As for r and r, anyone who's read my trip reports knows I can't just sit by a pool I need to be doing something all the time

I'm not sure if you knew of this site...

http://www.disney.honeymoonwishes.com/

It's a Disney Site for a honeymoon registry.....
you can use it like any registry for wedding gift requests..
It looks like the guest can purchase a specific special moment for you
(bottle of wine, special dinner, towards a suite) and more.

I haven't used it, but perhaps someone else on the site
can give their feedback on this service.
