  1. For future reference. I am in the process of planning my December 2020 wedding and am being told the venue fee for this location will be $350.

  2. Do you know if you can have both your ceremony and reception at this venue? And do you need to wait for park closure?

    1. Disney will not do a ceremony and a full reception in the same venue because they are still setting up the reception while the ceremony is taking place. BUT you can do a ceremony and a celebration (a 2-hour-or-less catered event) in the same venue. This info is on page 67 of the Fairytale Weddings Guide. Tamu Tamu is available starting at 7pm. This info is on page 101 of the guide.

      1. Hi Carrie! So if I had a ceremony and celebration at this venue, I could start my ceremony at 7pm? Would I be able to fit in a ride mix in right after the ceremony and before cake celebration? Also, would I have to pay the venue fee for the location even though I am having the ceremony there?

        1. Hi Amber! Disney doesn’t like to start Tamu Tamu ceremonies at 7pm, only catered events. This is because they think it’s too noisy still in the park as it shuts down. Here’s an interview with a couple who had their ceremony and celebration at Tamu Tamu, starting at 10pm. It’s really going to depend on the park hours that day. A ride mix-in must occur as the park or the ride is closing, so that will also depend on park hours. Disney usually waives the venue fee for the second event held in the same location; you’d just have to meet the food and beverage minimum.

  3. If you plan a welcome party here do you know if the per person minimums are the same as a regular reception?

    1. Disney has no standard rain backup locations associated with any venue, so it just depends on what’s available that day and what time your event starts. If it’s during park hours, you’re looking at Conservation Station and Dinosaur Lounge. After hours, it could be Tusker House, Pizzafari, Restaurantosaurus or maybe even Yak & Yeti.
