  1. Hi Carrie!
    First, your venue photo gallery and entire blog are so incredibly helpful! My fiancé and I are planning a wishes wedding and are considering holding our reception at Italy Isola so that we can see fireworks without adding a fireworks dessert party. We’d like for a couple of our family members to be able to give speeches/toasts, but understand that amplification isn’t allowed in this location during park hours, and wondered if speeches can be heard with a group of 40-60 guests, with the ambient noise from park music and guests. Would you happen to know, or know of any couples who’ve attempted this?
    Thank you!! -Andrea

    1. Yes! Lots of couples do this for their receptions, and I’ve never heard of anyone running into problems with speeches being inaudible. I’ll bet they’d even set you up with a mic and speaker at a lower volume. The no-amplification rule is more about not blasting dance music while the park is still open to day guests.

    2. Hi Andrea,
      We actually had the exact situation happen to us at our Italy Isola reception. I thought that they’d give us a mic for speeches (understanding that we wouldn’t be able to project music, etc), especially as we had the whole Isola to ourselves. But we didn’t end up being able to use a mic at all, which made some our speeches hard to hear for tables in the back. I assumed we would have just been able to take our mics from the ceremony (also at Italy), but when I asked my planner on the day, she said no. So we had to kinda half-shout the speeches, unfortunately. So def ask your planner in advance!

    1. Hi Christine! Any sit-down meal at Disney is going to last at least 2 hours. And because the seating and buffet have to be set up during the ceremony, Disney will require you to use a separate venue for the ceremony. Some popular combinations would be Italy Courtyard for the ceremony and Italy Isola for the reception, or Japan/Morocco for the ceremony and Terrace des Fleurs for the reception. Basically, you can use any World Showcase venue for the ceremony, and then you can move to any indoor Epcot location OR any of the fireworks-viewing terraces around the lagoon for the reception. But you wouldn’t be able to have a reception in the main pavilion areas (Germany, Italy Courtyard, Morocco, etc.) following a morning wedding.
