July 15, 1995 – The Wedding Pavilion Opens in Walt Disney World
“Enchanting from afar and dazzling from within, this locale is our premier wedding destination, expressly made for matrimony and ensconced in a lush and tranquil garden setting.”
On July 15, 1995, the special Wedding Pavilion opened in Walt Disney World, on a private island in the Seven Seas Lagoon near the Magic Kingdom. After the success of the Fairy Tale Weddings department, it was necessary to have a specific place for weddings within Walt Disney World; the first wedding held there was on June 18, 1995, and was featured on the Lifetime special Weddings of a Lifetime. The pavilion can accommodate up to 250 guests, and Cinderella’s Castle can be seen in the background of the garden area. The pavilion is still a highly sought after place for Disney-themed weddings.
