A 14th floor event space offers a picturesque wedding reception venue featuring views of Walt Disney World
Couples looking to get married in Orlando, the best place in the U.S. to get married according to Wallethub, will have a new option to consider in 2021 with the opening of the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, located in the heart Walt Disney World Resort.
The new 14-story, 349-room hotel, opening later this summer as part of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin complex, will offer indoor and outdoor event space including a one-of-a-kind, top-floor event space – perfect for an unforgettable wedding overlooking Walt Disney World Resort. The resort’s Vue ballroom is a nearly 4,000-square-foot space seating up to 160 guests, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a 1,000-square-foot outdoor terrace offering breathtaking views of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin as well as EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Vue will also offer spectacular views of several Walt Disney World fireworks shows.
For couples looking for a one-stop shop wedding ceremony and reception venue, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin can also host ceremonies at a variety of locations throughout the resort including several scenic outdoor spaces such as the resort’s private white-sand beach, lakefront terrace or wedding courtyard.
To ensure a smooth wedding day, the resort recently hired Certified Wedding Planner Jennifer Sharpe to oversee the wedding experience. Sharpe has extensive wedding and event-planning experience including roles with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons and The Ritz-Carlton.
“The Vue event space is unlike any other I’ve offered in my career,” said Sharpe. “This unique ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous views of Disney will create a reception that will be picture perfect in every way. Combined with the resort’s overall convenient, walkable location and the award-winning food and beverage offerings, this option is second to none for those looking for a truly magical wedding experience.”
