November 19, 1990 – The Restaurant Ariel’s Opens in Walt Disney World’s Beach Club Resort

“From the moment you step through the fish-adorned ironwork gate, you’ll be immersed in a delightful deep-sea setting made for mermaids.”

On November 19, 1990, the themed restaurant Ariel’s opened in the Beach Club Resort in Walt Disney World. The seafood restaurant was designed to keep the resort’s nautical theme; it was eventually closed on May 3, 1997. The restaurant has since been reserved as a reception venue for those holding their weddings in Walt Disney World, and was briefly reopened as a full-service restaurant when the Captain’s Grille was being refurbished.

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.

“Well, she’s your problem now, Bob.”

On May 10, 1959, Sharon Mae Disney, Walt’s youngest daughter, married Robert “Bob” Borgfeldt Brown in a small ceremony in Pacific Palisades. Sharon and Bob, a designer at architectural firm Charles Luckman, began dating after being set up on a blind date by mutual friends, and were engaged after a year and a half of dating. After the pair were married, Walt carried on the tradition of convincing his sons-in-law to join the company, and Brown did in 1963, becoming a planner in WED (now Walt Disney Imagineering).
