I am really interested in having a ceremony in Epcot. However, I notice a lot of the venues can’t hold more than 100 people. I’ve tried to trim my guest list down as much as possible but can’t get it smaller than 150. I imagine that not everyone invited will attend, and the number will be closer to 100, but regardless I must assume everyone is coming. Do you know of anyone who was able to have an Epcot ceremony with around 150 people and the location that was able to make this happen?
Hi Brittany! Almost all the ceremony spots in Epcot that say they can hold 100 people can actually hold more than that. For example, in Japan, there are a couple of different ways to set up a ceremony, and if you do it so the red gate is the focal point, you can get way more than 100 people seated there. Italy Plaza will definitely hold more than 100, and Italy Isola could be combined with Italy West Plaza, if necessary. American Adventure Rotunda seats 150 people for a reception with a dance floor—you’d have no problem seating that many for a ceremony. I wouldn’t worry about this!
Thank you so much for this information!
Hi Carrie! I was wondering if you knew if someone could get both the Italy Isola and Italy West Plaza for a Wishes reception? My fiance and I are kicking around the idea of a Wishes wedding but I think my guest count would be more than would fit on one or the other alone. If you can get both, does Disney charge to use both spaces? Thanks!
Yes, Disney often combines the two locations for larger events. Usually they waive the venue fee for the smaller location but still require you to meet the food and beverage minimums for both spots.
