Door to the Fireworks Viewing Platform
Hi, I’m planning to do an Escape wedding in Fall 2018, and wanted to have a dinner after the ceremony at either the Napa or Sonoma rooms. My group will only be about 20 people total, would the Napa room feel empty with only 20 people? If we choose the Sonoma room instead, would we still be able to go out on one of the platforms to view the fireworks, since I know they do not have the private platform or view of MK/fireworks from this room? Thank you for any input 🙂
Hi! You can go out on either of the platforms if you’re doing an event in Sonoma, but I really don’t think Napa will feel empty with just 20 people. It’s a pretty small room.
Hi, thankyou for all the good info! just wondering if you know what the food and beverage minimums are for the napa room, thinking about having our wedding reception there but we arent having the ceremony with disney, is that still possible? thanks again 🙂
The only way to plan an event here without going through Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings would be to plan through Disney Catered Events—and if they think you are trying to do a wedding without going through Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, they will not let you wear a wedding gown, have a wedding cake or do anything wedding-like. However, if you are willing to meet Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ Food and Beverage and Enhancement minimum expenditures, you CAN have a ceremony off-site and just do your reception through DFTW at California Grill. They do this all the time for Catholic couples who want to be married in a church. Either way, the food and beverage minimums at the Napa Room are $2,000 for events ending before 4:00 pm and $4,000 for events that start after 6:00 pm. Events that require the room between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm have a $6,000 minimum.
This question is for the main dining room page since the comments are off…
So in your book you say that to have an event after 3pm requires a buyout of the entire restaurant how much would that cost? Also do you have the menu available or is just the same one that CG always uses?
The buyout price is determined by the restaurant and varies because they expect to make different amounts depending on day of the week and time of year. Your Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings planner would have to find out for you. Basically, you are paying for every single meal they think they would otherwise sell that night, so we’re talking about tens of thousands of dollars. Your menu choices would be the regular restaurant menu or any of California Grill’s catered event menus (which you can see here).
Hello again lol! I got your book and it has been so helpful. I am about halfway through so if the answer to this question is in there I apologize. But I wanted to know the time frame of booking through Disney’s Catered Events. For example if I want to book the Napa Room for next year could I do that? Also can I order a cake through them? Thank you always for your help.
Hi Jay!Usually Disney’s Catered Events will only book within 6 months, but you could contact them now to get the ball rolling. You can definitely order your cake through your DCE planner. But if they think you’re trying to do a wedding event, they will pass you off to Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings.
Looking for a place to have rehearsal dinner ..aprox 40 people for May 2nd
The Napa Room would be a great size for your group. If you are having a Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding, you can book it through your wedding planner. Otherwise, contact Disney’s Catered Events at 1-407-824-1855.
