tdr0472_One couple per day! “Disney’s Royal Dream Wedding”


A new wedding program “Disney’s Royal Dream Wedding” was announced on March 23, 2012.

As the name suggests, this plan offers a wedding full of loyal (noble) dreams.

Originally, there had been a popular wedding plan called “Disney’s Fairly Tale Wedding”, where the bride and groom were celebrated directly by Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. But the new plan is even more special.

What is special about the premium plan is that the wedding ceremony is held inside the Cinderella Castle, for only one couple per day.

A nonreligious ceremony is performed in the Grand Ball Room inside the attraction “Cinderella’s Fairy Tale Hall”, where the bride and groom exchange rings, sign marriage certificate, and pledge their undying love for each other in front of the guests.

After the ceremony, they walk in front of the Cinderella Castle, receiving a shower of flower petals.

Outside the castle are a lot of guests and cast members, including those the couple does not even know, who are celebrating and giving their blessings to their marriage.

Walking with everyone looking at you in a celebratory mood, you will definitely feel like a real prince/princess.

After that, a wedding reception is held in the Cinderella Dream banquet room in the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel, where the popular Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse appear to celebrate their union.

It is definitely a dream experience that you will never forget for the rest of your life.

This premium wedding costs around $75,000 for 50 guests ($450 for an additional guest), while an average wedding ceremony in Tokyo area costs around $35,000 for 70 guests. Yes, the price is also ‘premium’.

The memorable first Royal Dream Wedding was held on September 28, 2012.

The lucky couple who won the right for the first was Mr. Takayuki Abiko (groom; 34 years old back then) and Ms. Mayumi Kato (bride; 31 years old back then).

“We are just a normal couple, both working. We’d saved up living within our means, and either one’s income could cover the wedding expenses. So we could manage it,” says Mr. Abiko.

$75,000 is quite a sum of money, but they decided to pay for it because of the ‘premium’ quality.

The ‘premium’ wedding, in terms of both the contents and the cost, will definitely be an unforgettable, priceless experience.
