Wedding Rooms Booked!

I must say I am EXTREMELY excited about having not only a destination wedding (which I've always wanted) but also a wedding at Disneyworld. With this excitement, though, comes a tinge of guilt. I do feel bad that people have to travel so far, and just the cost associated with everything. My family and friends will be coming mostly from Oregon, while Frank's will be coming mostly from the New York/Boston regions. I try to remind myself that even if we had it in one of our hometowns, one of our families would be making a long trip. But to ease some of the expenses, we have tried to help some of our most distant travellers out with hotel costs. I am so excited with the outcome! See, Frank and I have DVC, Disney Vacation Club. It is a great timeshare that enables us to stay at our favorite hotels in Disneyworld and other hotels throughout the world for little or no charge (other than annual dues.) We were able to cover the costs of so many rooms for people in my all time favorite hotel, The Animal Kingdom Lodge!!! I am just really happy to share this hotel with our closest family and friends. It is our favorite hotel, and conveniently where our rehearsal dinner will be held. DVC is also opening up a new hotel at The Contemporary Hotel, and we booked up a room there in a two bedroom suite for a little bachelorette party for me! The room has a view of the Magic Kingdom, so we can have our little fun time, then watch the fireworks over Cinderella's castle!!! Making the decision to have a Disneyworld wedding wasn't really mine, Frank definitely pulled for that one. I don't know how I'll ever thank him!!!

oh that is so sweet of you - and now you've sparked my interest in DVC - what a fun idea!! just so you know, if any of your family is military (active duty, reserves or retired), there are aMAZING discounts at both Disneyland and World this year - world is all year, land ends in june. basically, it's a 3 day park hopper pass for the military member at disneyland (FREE) and a 5 day park hopper pass at disneyworld (FREE) and discount prices on buying additional tickets. definitely pass it on to your guests!

We're checking into the Animal Kingdom Lodge for the honeymoon on April 27! I could not be more excited! Is it really that awesome?

Kristen (Something Blue) -

I LOVE the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It is very nice, but so cozy at the same time. The Cast Members there are fantastic, it smells so good, and the music... I love the music. :) It is really a pretty amazing place. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

Alanna,

Thank you SO much for the tip!! I will pass that along, because it is likely we will have a couple of people that are military. They will be so greatful for your advice!!
