The Best Hotels for Weddings in Orlando

Jennifer Greenhill-Taylor | January 05, 2018

Destination weddings are increasingly popular, and weddings at Florida theme parks are a growing niche. Dozens of Orlando resorts and hotels are competing for your happy event, so take advantage of the wide variety and shop around. As you would expect, Disney does weddings like nobody else, right down to the glass carriage drawn by eight miniature white ponies that deliver the bride to the wedding chapel to join her Prince Charming. Seriously. They do this. Disney even has its own website called Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons, where, for a price, Fairy Godmothers and elves and bluebirds will plan the entire thing for you, dress, venue, food, and honeymoon destination--like you're in a cartoon! Fun! For those who just want a fun theme-park getaway, there are plenty of choices in hotels nearby.

Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek

Why it made the list

Florida’s mild climate allows outdoor weddings for most of the year, although August/September might not be the best months to schedule--too hot and humid (unless you want your wedding theme to be "actual swamp, of course). The Hilton is very close to Disney and offers facilities for outdoor and indoor celebrations. The golf course, the spa at the Waldorf next door, a 3-acre lazy river pool, and 12 restaurants make for a great honeymoon, but if the couple has other plans, their wedding guests will still have much to keep them occupied.

The Hilton, attached to the Waldorf Astoria, offers plenty o Read More
