    Hi,

    I am pretty much flexible with the budget as I have already paid for the holiday itself.

    I am not sure if I want it to be held by the beach, hotel, or outdoor somewhere.....

    Hi,

    Wont mind having it at WDW but prices does look bit steep so perhaps off WDW but we are not taking car so somewhere fairly locally so we can hop into taxi (not very romantic!)

    No, but a limo could be. :D

    Leu Gardens in Winter Park is beautiful. Not sure how they are with same gendered ceremonies.

    Enzian Theatre in Casselberry (just north of Orlando, a suburb actually) is VERY gay friendly and they have pretty gardens. They do ceremonies too, I believe.

    Ummm...close... OH! If Lake Eola in downtown Orlando is very pretty. Site of Pride most years. :yes: Not sure how you would arrange that though? Maybe through City government?

    Hey. Just do what we did. Take a cruise! LOL.

    Uh, yep. :D For same gendered couples anyway. :D I've gotten too far away from what is actually available though, so not a valid idea anymore. :)

    Hmmmm...away from public places? Not sure about that. Do you mean something you'd rent for private use?

    I'm going to just put in a small plug for WDW weddings/vow renewals dept.

    They have a huge array of options available and although they tend to publish prices for some packages, they CAN be somewhat flexible and knock this/that off to get to the right budget.

    There are so many great options around WDW. The at-resort options like the wilderness lodge and polynesian grounds are completely beautiful. Completely absorbing for the party itself yet unassuming and unpretentious (and reasonably private!).

    The Disney photographic team is also truly great and very reasonably priced versus the other Orlando photographers (although there are some brilliant Orlando photographers should you decide to take advantage of them as well :yes: we can help suggest a few names if you need ! )

    We're all gonna be as or more excited than you about this you know :lol:

    Super good info Keith! :yes:

    If you want your ceremony to be anywhere on WDW property I do believe you must go through them anyway. There are some really beautiful areas, and not all are in the direct line of public view.

    If you want to go off property and not be in a public setting (that I'm taking to mean, having strangers viewing your ceremony) then you'll have to rent private space.

    Here's another link... not sure how current the info is, but there are additional links on the page that will help you find out more info.

    I don't know how kitschy you want to get but there is a local place in downtown Orlando, VERY gay friendly (and that means men for the most part) Hamburger Mary's. Yep, it's a burger place but they'd be a hoot at a ceremony.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and warn you away from the Parliament House. I know that loads of gay (men) go there, but really... ummmm... NOT the sort of place you'd be renewing vows... trust me on that one, ok? :embarassed:

    I did everything via email with them from the UK and they were fine with it so it shouldn't be a problem :yes: I'll see if I still have a working email address for them.

    Ps. some years later we were able to visit the Disney events team, of which Disney weddings is a part, and speak to some of the people there. They live and breathe putting on events no matter how small or large.
