As we’ve shared, the Star Wars-themed lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action.

The Ultimate Fairy Tale- ‘Beauty & the Beast’ Inspired Wedding at Walt Disney World
by Korri McFann, Brand Steward, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons
Heather and Josh first met in college and instantly connected. There was something different this time, and they both knew it right away.
Heather is a huge Disney fan and has timeless memories from her vacations to the parks. From holidays to birthdays, Disney has always played a special role. When it came time to propose, Josh knew it had to be at Walt Disney World. He dropped to one knee at Picture Point, behind Disney’s Wedding Pavilion with Cinderella Castle in the distance, and of course, she said “Yes!”
The couple celebrated their modern day fairy tale with a lovely ceremony at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion and an extravagant, stunning reception at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Ballrooms.
The day was filled with elements from “Beauty and the Beast” from Lumiere announcing the dinner service to a Beast inspired groom’s cake. Be our guest and check out all the details of their wonderful day.
