Grand Terrace — Grand Floridian

    1. Grand Terrace is located on the second floor of the main lobby at the Grand Floridian, next to Enchanted Rose. It was formerly called Commander’s Terrace and used for small cake and Champagne receptions. So far I’ve never seen it used for a ceremony, and even getting it for cake and Champagne these days seems difficult, but it never hurts to ask!

      1. This is one of my ideal locations for a ceremony/cake and champagne celebration! If that was even possible nowadays, would the minimums be $5000?

        1. The $5,000 Event Minimum is the amount you need to spend in order to have a wedding ceremony and/or reception via Disney’s Fairytale Weddings. It can be higher than $5,000, depending on the ceremony venue you choose. To have a cake and Champagne celebration you need to spend at least $50/person, but you also need to meet the venue-specific food-and-beverage minimum of the location you choose. Complete details on this are in Chapter 1 of my Fairytale Weddings Guide. No one has had a cake and Champagne ceremony under the new pricing structure yet, but I would imagine that there is probably a venue-specific food-and-beverage minimum at Grand Terrace somewhere in the $500—$1,000 range. The $50/per person counts toward it. And both minimums count toward the $5,000+ you need to spend to have a Disney wedding.

    1. Unlikely. It’s difficult for DFTW to even get approval to use it for a cake and Champagne reception. Also, you can’t see any fireworks from there. I’d recommend Sago Cay Pointe as an alternative!

        1. The only food and beverage minimum you have to meet is the $50/person triggered by adding a celebration. And resort venues do not have venue fees.

          1. Hey. Could you do a character meet here before going to your reception at the Enchanted Rose ? We want to do a breakfast buffet reception at the Enchanted rose but I’d heard that they don’t allow characters there and I’m trying to figure out a way around it because a character meet is a must for us ! Thank you. xox.

          2. No, because it has the same problem Enchanted Rose has: Day guests can see the characters walking in to your event. Where’s your ceremony? You can have the characters appear at certain ceremony venues, directly after the ceremony.
