You Can Now Marry Right In Front Of Cinderella Castle At Disney World

But this fairy tale wedding option doesn't come cheap.

If you've always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding, look no further.

You can now tie the knot at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida with none other than Cinderella Castle in the background.

Couples can now get married at Walt Disney World's East Plaza Garden.

“Couples have been seeking a celebratory location showcasing the iconic Cinderella Castle,” Korri McFann, marketing director for Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, said in a press release. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to make those dreams a reality.”

The venue, East Plaza Garden, was recently renovated with new landscaping and a fountain.

East Plaza Garden, which is located in front of Cinderella Castle and in the heart of Magic Kingdom Park, will be available to host weddings for the very first time. It was recently renovated with new landscaping and a fountain, according to Michelle Baumann of Walt Disney World Public Relations, and can accommodate up to 100 guests.

But fairy tale weddings don't come cheap; packages in the East Plaza Garden begin at $75,000. And the prices go up from there, depending on additions like a ride in Cinderella's horse-drawn carriage and fireworks.

Brides can take Cinderella’s coach to East Plaza Garden for their grand entrance -- for a fee.

After the ceremony, couples can choose from a variety of venues for their reception, Baumann told The Huffington Post, including "unique specialty venues such as Atlantic Dance Hall or the Living Seas Salon."

Couples have been saying "I do" at Disney locations -- including the theme parks and resorts all over the world -- for almost 25 years, but never this close to the castle. The team at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons coordinates more than 1,200 weddings at Walt Disney World Resort every year, many of which take place at Disney’s Wedding Pavilion adjacent to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
