There were things we both liked and disliked about each place. For example, we loved the view from Parkview Terrace but didn't like how all the hotel balconies are facing it. We loved how private the Rose Court Garden felt but were nervous about the ongoing construction around it for the Disneyland Hotel renovations. We went back to both of the locations a few times. We tried standing in the spots where we'd be for the ceremony and tried sitting in the area our guests would sit. We showed pictures of the locations to our families.
In the end, we finally decided on....
The Rose Court Garden!
There was just so much we loved about it. The rose bushes and the gazebo are so pretty on their own that we would not really have to do much to dress it up. We love spending time at the Disneyland Hotel area and we've walked near the location while weddings have been taking place and it really is a wonderful spot.
For the reception location we were torn between the Wisteria Room and the Sleeping Beauty Pavilion. But once we picked the Rose Court Garden for the ceremony location, we decided we would use the Pavilion for our reception since it was closer to it.
We are really excited for the wedding! After deciding on our locations we contacted Cynthia, the Disneyland Wedding specialist we had met with, and let her know our decision and the date. After checking on the schedule she got back to us and let us know it was available and that we would be receiving our contract in the mail! The first big decision for our wedding was complete!
