Plan a Small Private Event at Walt Disney World
There are a couple of ways to set up a small private event at Walt Disney World. One is to call Private Dining at the Grand Floridian (407-824-2474) and arrange to have dinner somewhere in the hotel or at the Marina during Wishes. Figure on at least $200 once you factor in the resort’s pricey catering menu and the services of the butler who meets you in the lobby and serves you at your table. You can also request food from any of the resort’s restaurants for a hefty surcharge. Here’s a link to a great detailed report of an anniversary party there, and here’s a sweet surprise birthday party.
The other way to do a small private event at Walt Disney World is to work with Disney Catered Events (firstname.lastname@example.org or 321-939-7278). You will be assigned an event planner who works at the resort where you’re staying, but you can plan an event at any other resort or in some of the parks. The only requirement is that you be staying at a Disney-owned resort.
Now that I’ve done two of these, I’ve split them out into their own pages, complete with detailed planning info and picture-packed recaps of each event.
