Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Cake Styles & Pricing

In the past, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings in Florida has provided couples with a PDF containing images of many standard wedding cake designs, along with mini cakes and groom’s cakes.

Although you are not restricted to these choices—and Disney is known for its execution of custom cake designs—the photos in this document and the price list at the end will give you a good idea of how much Disney charges for various cake sizes and levels of complexity.

Projection-Mapping Video Cake

Disney’s projection-mapping cake costs $7,200 for a 5-tiered artificial cake and counts toward the Event Minimum. If you would like any of the layers to be real cake, you will pay extra for those. The standard projections (three of which can be seen in the video below) cost $895, or you can pay $375 extra to design your own. The projection is seen on the front two sides of the cake, and the projector is hidden inside a giant gift box that face the cake. A white chocolate castle cake topper like the one shown in the video costs $125 extra. To order a white chocolate cake topper directly from the vendor for your at-home wedding, click here.

  1. Hi
    Is it possible to have the escape wedding but choose a cake that isn’t from the list of escape cakes? Such as a wishes style 2 tier castle style cake?

      1. Yay! Thanks!!! I’m going to get your book now to start reading! I have so many questions since I really want more than the escapes but less than the wishes..if that makes sense. I hope to add in whatever else I can if they allow it.

        1. Oh, great! That episode covers alllllll the ways to customize Escape, but let me know if you have any further questions!

  2. I chose an escape collection but how do they calculate the cost for a cake, for example if I want to go for a 3 tier Simple Elegance cake (serves 50 guests count minimum).
    Escape package does come with a 2 tier wedding. How much do they charge for additional for the 3rd tier cake if it’s a simple elegance design?

    1. Your planner will get a quote from the pastry team and let you know how much the extra tier would cost. Also, a 2-tier Escape cake can easily feed 50 people, if you’re worried about that. Disney vastly underestimates the number of servings for its cakes.

      1. They quoted an extra tier of the 8” is $750 which I found it bizarre. I’m just worry about 2 tier doesn’t look good and not sure if they can do something to make the cake looks taller and not so tiny and sits low…(to my opinion).

        1. OK, so they’re basically quoting you the price of an entire 3-tier cake, with no credit for the Escape cake. Changing the height of the cake tiers will definitely add to the cost because it is a nonstandard request. Instead of asking for a specific Wishes cake, I’d ask for a Bliss or Happily Ever After Escape cake with no metallic accents and then pay to add floral that matches that of the Simple elegance cake.

          1. Hi, Can you do a 1 tier cake to be delivered to crescent cove venue

          2. Hi! You can have any size cake you want, at any venue! The only thing might be that, because Crescent Cove is outside, if it’s the middle of the day in the dead of summer, they might have to bring it out right at the last second to avoid spoilage.

  3. Can cupcakes be made with fillings? Thinking of having a cupcake to cut in half and share rather than the traditional cutting of the cake (going to leave the actual cake cutting to the experts), but we are also very set on either a fruit filling or a passionfruit mousse filling.

    1. Yes, or you could do a mini-cake, which only feeds two people and offers more opportunity for decoration than a cupcake. Either way, you just wouldn’t be able to have fresh fruit fillings (like with chunks) because the real estate is so small, but you could have fruit mousse, including passionfruit mousse.

  4. Would I be able to order one of these cakes if I’m not having a disney wedding?
    I also hear all of these yummy flavors (french toast!!) on your podcast, am I missing something? I don’t see them listed?

    1. Yes, you can order a cake to be delivered to any Disney resort where you are staying or dining; complete details can be found HERE. Your best bet to get these flavors is to be staying or dining at the Grand Floridian. All the flavors, including French Toast, are listed under the “Cake Flavors” tab at the top of this page.

    1. Yes! I do this for most of my dessert parties. The cake will be made by the team catering your dessert party. But if you want something extra fancy and the event isn’t being held at the Grand Floridian, you can pay a delivery fee to have their wedding cakes team make it for you.

  5. How can we order a cake to be delivered to the Disney restaurant for my parents 25th anniversary? We would like a 2 tier cake for 10 people. December 17th Narcoossee’s

    1. Can I have my wedding cake at my ceremony? I’m getting married in animal kingdom tree of life and I would like to have my cake there

    1. This is just a list of flavors they have offered in the past. Disney is very open to working with you to create the flavor combo you want (and I have never heard that coconut specifically is unavailable), so if that’s what you want, let them know!

  6. Is there any kind of a small wedding cake option for 4 adults and 2 children to be delivered to a WDW restaurant? My fiancee and I are eloping and thought we could have a cake delivered for dessert when we take our friends out to dinner.

  7. Hi, do you know if I can have a Disney wedding cake if I’m planning to have a reception at Shades of Green? Like will they deliver to that resort, I noticed it wasn’t on the list you posted above.

    1. Hi! Unfortunately, Disney’s wedding cakes team only delivers to Disney-owned and -operated locations; Shades of Green is not one. They might let you pick it up at the Grand Floridian. There are also plenty of amazing cake vendors in the greater Orlando area!

  8. I’m just starting my wedding options and we’re having it Disney. So looking for ideas and went through all your ideas and then called Disney and was told they don’t have the Collections any more so after I thought I was moving forward I actually have to start over to figure out what we could afford with the budget we have. I just wanted others not to go through what I did when I wanted to be prepared before calling Disney.

    1. I’m not sure where you’re seeing info on the collections on my site—those have been discontinued for over a year, and the Fairytale Weddings Guide has not had info on them since that time. Do you have the most recent version of the guide? It should say v2.3 on page 2. If not, you can redownload it from your account following these directions: https://fairytaleweddingsguide.com/download-ebook-updates/. You’ll find complete details on the new way weddings are priced in Chapter 1 and in this episode of the Disney Wedding Podcast.

      1. I was just on fairytale wedding from chrome but I have to wait til the 3rd of next month because I’m on disability and don’t have the money til then,but I will buy your book. Thank you.

  9. I plan to get married on September 24, 2021. Ceremony at Crescent Cove and dinner at Il Muluno. There will be 12 ppl and I would like a small wedding cake with possibly 2 tiers with cannoli filling. Is this possible? If so how much, can it be delivered and how do I order.

    1. Hi Margaret! To have a cake deliered to Il Mulino, you would need to work with the Swan & Dolphin pastry team (info HERE) or an Orlando-area cake bakery that will deliver to the Swan. However, if you are adding a cake and Champagne celebration to your Crescent Cove wedding, your Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings planner can help you order a cake from the Wedding Cakes team at the Grand Floridian to be served at the celebration. Prices vary depending on the decoration style, but a two-tier cake ordered via DFTW usually starts around $300.

    1. Hi! The actual restaurant has to be Disney-owned for delivery, and there are no Disney-owned restaurants at Disney Springs anymore. Amorette’s will deliver there, and you might be able to find a local bakery who will as well. Additionally, there are furloughed Disney pastry team members in the Ear for Each Other Facebook group who might be able to make and deliver a cake by meeting you at Paddlefish.

  10. Hello! I am looking at the latest update of the guidebook and the projection cake is now saying $7,200 and I am just wondering if that is correct and also hoping it is not since that is double the price mentioned here. Thank you!

    1. Yes! The whole reason I do regular updates to the guidebook is so that the pricing in it is correct! I will update this page to reflect the new price.

  11. Do you know if cakes from outside vendors are allow at dessert parties? We’d like to bring 2 Gideon’s cakes to our post wedding Epcot dessert party.

    1. Hi! Disney doesn’t allow outside vendors for cake at any venue, with the exception of Erin McKenna’s cakes for those with dietary restrictions. However, it’s worth asking, since Gideon’s is a vendor at Disney Springs and may have some special arrangement with Disney too!

  12. Hello! Wedding is scheduled for December, 2022! We are taking a short trip in May for my bday and we would love to do a cake tasting, how do we go about doing that? I looked in your book, but couldn’t find the info! Thanks!

  13. So far her plan is the reception site is Whitehall, and the cake is to be made at Grand Floridian (3-tier). From looking at the guide, I’m interpreting the cake service fee is $0 since Whitehall is part of the GF and the cake is to be made at the GF bakery (Therefore $702.50 (cake) + 45.66 (6.5% sales tax) = $748.16). That’s totally do-able …

    Then I noticed a “cake-cutting service fee” and it’s taxes. Are these other fees that needs to be part of the calculations that have nothing to do with where cake is made? And if so, how does that fall into the existing equation? (ie cake ($702.50) + 6.5% sales tax of cake ($45.66) = $748.16, + 25% Cake-cutting service fee of 748.16 ($187.04) =$935.20, + 6.5% sales tax of 935.20 ($60.79) …… FINAL TOTAL OF $995.99 (for a cake that cost $450).

    Please tell me I’m over-thinking this!

    And how do handling fees and delivery fees come into this – how much and do they have service fees and/or taxes that need to apply?

    (She’s also warned me she may go with a smaller cake (2-tier), which, per your guide, would be made at another place (EPCOT, I think). I warned her I would knock her over the head with my spreadsheet if she asked me to calculate that … )

    1. Hi! So Disney started applying what they call a “cake-cutting service charge” to *all* cakes a while ago, and I took the info about no service fee at the Grand Floridian out of the guide. However, I recently discovered it’s still mentioned in one of the captions, so that is coming out in the next update (later this month). The name is what throws people. It’s just the same 25% service fee DIsney slaps on ALL food and beverage—cake is no different now, and it doesn’t have anything to do with whether the cake is actually cut or not.

      You don’t have to do this calculation yourself. Just put the base price of the cake into the Wedding Cake line item on page 243 of the self-calculating budget worksheet in the eBook, and it will display the exact service fee and tax amounts, plus the total. I get $599.06 for a $450 cake.

      You could check with Disney and see if smaller cakes are still being farmed out to EPCOT or if they are being made by the Grand Floridian again. I just saw a BEO with a 2-tier cake on it that’s being made by the Grand Floridian, so they may have discontinued that.

      1. THANK YOU! Oh, and i did do the budget worksheet, however, the “extra” service mentioned threw me, as you can plainly see. My cousin is no longer in danger from an excel spreadsheet, although if she changes her colors one more time .. thank you again!

  14. Where can you find the cake prices and designs of cakes for the epcot global that you need to use to get married in epcot?

    1. Disney no longer publishes any kind of list of prices or catalog of wedding cake designs for any venue. You just have to submit photos or sketches of what you want, and the pastry team will get you a price via your planner.
