Our wedding was just beautiful at the Buena Vista Palace! The staff is so courteous and our guests raved about how awesome the set up was at the Palace as well as the food! I couldn't have pictured my wedding anywhere else! It was a perfect location next to Disney and the entire experience at the Palace certainly made my wedding memorable!

We live in Central Florida and had great venue options everywhere! We were looking for a location that all of our guests would love for our Nov. 23,2013 wedding and find convenient since 95% of them were traveling from out of state. We selected the Buena Vista Palace because upon our first visit we felt welcomed and comfortable and it offered an outdoor ceremony space, an indoor reception space, a brunch location and rooms for guests all in one place with no additional travel needed. One big plus was that were able to have wedding discussions with Emily out of the main areas in a separate office which was a detail many other locations simply didn’t have. Emily was also fantastic. She gave us a sense of security that wedding planning and our special day would run smoothly. Emily had a showcase at the Buena Vista Palace this helped us talk with vendors that had done events there before, being a unique space we were grateful to have this opportunity to talk with experienced vendors as well as see possible event set up spaces. Both before and after we decided on our venue Emily would respond to emails promptly and was always calm, patient and professional. She put up with our indecisive moments and helped us make all the important decisions for the big day. She along with the staff at the Buena Vista Palace and my coordinator Angela Bachelor from All About the Details ensured my now husband and I were calm and relaxed throughout the wedding weekend! Our families raved about the food, location and all the details. They also loved the unique location and space that is 20Seven. We all loved that there was an area for dancing as well as quieter spaces for catching up with family and friends. My husband and I could not have selected a better venue for our wedding weekend! Thank you to the Buena Vista Palace staff especially Ms. Emily Johnson!

The staff was very attentive and friendly and the facilities were beautiful!! We had the ceremony at the gazebo and the weather was perfect! We had our reception up in 20Seven and everyone loved the view and the decor and it was so great to see the fireworks from up there! Thank you everyone there for making our wedding so wonderful!!

My fiancée and I had the pleasure of working with the Buena Vista Palace for our wedding. From the start, we found the staff to be completely professional and competent as well as warm and very friendly. The chef's worked with us on our special menu, accommodating our needs until it was just right.
We were shown several options for our wedding, ensuring which one would be the best fit for us. Our guests said they found the rooms comfortable and the event outstanding.
I would strongly recommend this venue for future weddings and other special events!

We had a wonderful experience for our wedding. Everything was beautiful and set up just the way we wanted. The food was awesome. The decorations provided by hotel were beautiful including the linens. The flowers provided in our package were beautiful as well. We used this florist for all our flowers for the wedding. All our guests have told us this was one of the best weddings they had attended. For our guests who stayed at hotel, they were very impressed with the rooms and the friendly staff.

I planned my wedding from NJ so was a little nervous about how the big day would turn out. Angela Bachelor was recommended to us by Buena Vista Palace as a wedding coordinator and was instrumental in planning my day and ensuring everything went off without a hitch. Everyone at Buena Vista Palace was hugely helpful and so courteous to us and our guests from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. Emily Johnson, the Catering Manager, was a delight to work with and made sure that everything was covered and we were taken care of throughout the whole process; she even saved the day by quickly printing up some placecards for one of our reception tables that had been misplaced! Tina, our bartender, even went out of her way to create a special "Signature Drink" for our event! The wedding turned out more beautiful than I could have expected thanks to Emily, Angela, and the wonderful team of vendors recommended by Buena Vista Palace. I would definitely recommend this venue for any special occasion, it was well worth the cost and the service was beyond exceptional!

We had our wedding reception at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa on June 15th. It was absolutely perfect! We couldn’t have asked for anything different. Emily went above and beyond to make our day that much more special. She was a joy to work with and reassured me (a stressed bride) through the entire process. Our wedding had around 150 guests, most of which were from out of town. Everyone who had stayed at the hotel was beyond impressed by the hotel as well as how friendly the staff was. We were told repeatedly throughout the night that this was the best wedding our guests had ever been to, and both of us being Italian that means a lot! If you choose the Buena Vista Palace, you will only have your expectations exceeded.

I have no words to express how happy we were with everything. The communication was always prompt (Emily responded even when on holiday!), the understanding of being a long-distance planner, the reassurances....I can't thank you enough. And then, to top it all off, the service on the day was soooo impressive. The waiters were dressed to impress and ever so friendly. My guests couldn't have been in better hands. My first instincts won. Emily was like a long-lost friend from the very beginning and her dedication to our comfort and wedding shown through all the time. Thank you, to you and your team, for everything! PSAV uplighting was fab too! Gave a whole new meaning to picture perfect!

Emily Johnson and Buena Vista Palace did a superb job hosting our Rehearsal Luncheon! Everything was spectacular from the dining set up, to the food, to the service provided. There were no disappointments and they deserve an A+ rating all around. We got way more than we paid for and we could NOT have asked for a more lovely event. Thank you Emily! I would recommend BVP for any occasion to everyone I know.

We got married in Knight's Hall Knave and had our cocktail hour and reception up in 20seven. Everything was perfect! Emily is absolutely amazing and so fun to work with, she is the reason we chose the Palace. 20seven is such a unique venue, there is nothing that compares to it. I loved the fact that from the ceremony, it was only a 20 foot walk to the elevators to take the guests to 20seven where the rest of the wedding was held. It was very nice considering some of my guests have knee problems. The food was amazing and the service was excellent! My guests were very impressed. My husband and I had such a perfect wedding. We love the Palace and love Emily!

Buena Vista Palace is an amazing place to get married. It was everything i expected and more. Our ceremony was down at the gazebo, which is so beautiful overlooking the lake and garden and our reception was held at venue 20Seven, which is on the 27th floor of the Buena Vista hotel, this has the most amazing view of Disney World, we even got to have the Disney fireworks go off during our reception which was breathtaking. Emily the venue co-ordinator did an amazing job and i highly recommend anyone wanting a magical wedding to check this place out.

The Buena Vista Palace provided a beautiful backdrop for my son's wedding. I worked closely with Emily Johnson. She answered every question, talked me off every ledge, was patient with every change. This was a destination wedding for us. Emily went the extra mile, helping us with questions we had that were beyond the scope of her job, just to make things easier for me. She treated me like a friend, not just a client. The end result was a beautiful wedding & reception that was everything my daughter-in-law & son dreamed of.

Our event was a magical evening. And every detail offered and provided was done with special detail. We wanted our guest to enjoy a wonderful meal with services included. The dinner was hot,delicious and served with great care and timing. The champagne was served right on time, the dinner courses were served promptly and coffee services came out with the cake! Remarkable! Day of set up was handled by Ryan,a staff member of the hotel,and he was so helpful even to the outside vendors! They remarked to us how helpful he was.
There were no emergencies to handle. I think because there was thorough communication all through the planning process.The planning staff was easy to reach by phone and email and they were prompt at all times
An extra note that we have noticed after the fact was how our tables were set. Dont know how you accomplish this but....all glasses,silverware napkins etc were set with precision!!! Our pictures were beautiful of Great Hall North!
The lighting,although an extra fee,was like the cherry on the sundae ! Breathtaking!!!
A destination wedding was unchartered territory for us but the Buena Vista Palace made it so easy and enjoyable

The day of the event was better than expected, we really had no worries and were able to enjoy every detail our of wedding completely! I wish we would have eaten more.

Our wedding was on July 28 at BVP and our catering manager Emily Johnson was so amazing. Emily is pleasant, professional and very organized. She helped us to plan every detail of our wedding. This was a destination wedding for us and I chose this venue because I loved the location of the gazebo by the lake for the ceremony. This was a small wedding of about 34 people and we chose 20Seven for the reception because it's perfect for a small group and the view is amazing including the fireworks. Emily provided us with a list of preferred vendors including florists, day of wedding coordinators, photograpers, DJ's, etc.to select from which was perfect since we don't live in Orlando. We were also invited to a tasting prior to our wedding which was great because it helped us to select the menu for the reception. The food was excellent, we received so many compliments from our family and friends who were very happy with the menu selections. BVP provided us with a beautiful suite with a breathtaking view and a bottle of champagne for our honeymoon. Thank you Emily and BVP for making our wedding day very special and memorable.

A huge thank you to Ben and Patti for all their help with our room blocks for the wedding. Considering we, as well as all our guests, were from out of town, we needed a great place to stay. We got that and more. Everyone was so wonderful, the rooms were clean and well furnished. All of our guests were so impressed with the hotel, its value, and its proximity to downtown Disney and the parks. All the extra perks like the spa, shuttles, and on site restaurant and bar were also great!!!

The Buena Vista Palace is a beautiful location and hotel! The wedding coordinator and staff were very helpful with everything we needed. The food was EXCELLENT and all of our guests were very pleased. We were supposed to have our ceremony outdoors, but we had to move it indoors due to weather. The staff helped make the banquet room look beautiful in just a sort amount of time. My husband and I were so happy to celebrate our special day at the Buena VIsta Palace!

Sergio saved the day for our wedding night hotel. We were pinched for a place where the groomsmen could get ready comfortably and we asked Sergio about early check-in. Unfortunately, early check-in is something not easy to come by so Sergio, upon hearing that it was our wedding night, upgraded us to a suite and allowed me and my groomsmen to get ready in the spa. The preliminary videos and pictures were taken in the gorgeous courtyard of the Palace and we dressed in the very spacious men's sauna and spa. The hotel room itself was beautiful, clean, and way more than we expected.

BVP was beyond amazing to us. Our original venue had caught fire five months before our wedding, and we were stuck looking for somewhere else to have our wedding. The night that I contacted my vendors, my DJ had me on the phone with Angela, who is the wedding manager and we were discussing things.
They were able to work with my budget and made the wedding THE BEST it could possibly be. I think everyone was really loving the idea of the Orlando Magic theme too, so that made it even better. We had the catering manager all psyched for it and everything.


So, as far as a venue goes: We got married in the atrium. Absolutely GORGEOUS! I had a "grand entrance" coming down the elevator. The atrium is in a separate building, surrounded by rooms- so really the only downfall was that guests could watch the ceremony. That being said, Angela did a FANTASTIC job telling people to return to their rooms so that we had privacy.
We had our reception in the Great Hall ballroom. It is gorgeous! When the lights are dim, and with the awesome lighting we had. It was an amazing sight!
The food was amazing. The service was just as amazing.
And, the room we stayed in for the wedding was gorgeous! Super great view of Epcot at night time to watch the fireworks...
Everything about this place was a positive! The hotel itself is gorgeous, and it was great for our guests to be so close to Disney. A lot of them spent a day or two at the park either before or after the wedding.

The ballroom is breathtaking, the staff was so helpful. My guests are still talking about how amazing my wedding was, and the food was GREAT! Everyone at the palace went above and beyond for my wedding.

Emily made sure everything was taken care of and the staff at the palace could not have been more accommodating. The food was wonderful and everyone complimented us on it. Thanks to Emily and the staff of the BVP for making our wedding so special

Our coordinator Emily helped to make my wedding so especially special that almost everyone there said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. If you want a location that will make your event stylish, tasteful and classy, this is by far the location for you. I was married in the morning (sunrise) down in the courtyard gazebo overlooking the lake, which had a beautiful landscaping and a mist rising from the lake. The upstairs restaurant, dedicated solely to events, on the 27th floor, has beautiful huge window alcoves overlooking downtown Disney. I hear in the evening you see fireworks but we had a morning wedding so we got a good view of the hot air balloons and the building in Disney. Best of all was the food - there was not one thing that was not awesome and Emily accommodated my every request. For examle, my husband was not keen on the chicken apple sausage (it was breakfast) but after tasting it even he loved it. Everything was beautifully laid out and decorated.

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Buena Vista Palace and worked with Emily Johnson, overall we were happy and our wedding day turned out great. Emily was always friendly, had great communication, and was overall attentive. We had our ceremony outside by the lakefront gazebo and the weather was beautiful; although the gazebo is in a public part of the resort, guest onlookers wasn't an issue. Our reception was in the East/West ballroom, it's a beautiful location and accommodated our 90 guests perfectly, not too big or small. The BVP offers tastings/presentations every couple of months where you can try the food and view the rooms as they would be set up for the reception, we tried to attend as many as possible to get ideas and actually changed some of our food options after the last one because we found something we liked better. As with everything in the wedding business, everything is attached to a price but the BVP and Emily did a good job making us aware of additional costs of things. A room block is included in the booking, they were always willing to add more rooms for our guests. An additional nice surprise was chocolate covered strawberries and champagne waiting for us in our room with a nice note from Emily.

My husband and I did LOTS of searching for the best place to have our wedding. After examing every cost associated with having a wedding (and believe me there are lots of hidden fees) we found Buena Vista Palace to be very resonable. They were up front with every detail and expense. They left no hidden fees or additional costs from us. We paid exactly what we were quoted. Emily was brand new and came into our event half way through the planning but didn't miss a beat. It felt as if she had been there all along the way. Everyone we worked with was exceptional and flexible with every last detail! The Buena Vista palace helped make our day the best day of our lives. Thank you so much for all that the staff did for us. We cannot thank you enough!

The Palace was a BEAUTIFUL place to get married. The room was fantastic, the views were breathtaking, the food was amazing. We had a smaller wedding of about 40 peole and the room did not feel too big. We went with The Palace so we could have a Disney wedding without paying the Disney price tag. The staff was great and very responsive. We were very pleased with the results.

Lovely lakeside gazebo ceremony site - a little difficult for some guests to find since it is tucked behind a restaurant.
20Seven is an elegant, non-ballroom type cocktail/reception venue with a lovely rooftop view of the city. I would not select this venue if you have more than 100 guests. The extra guests would be too far from the dance floor. The food and service were first class.

Hi Alice! Thanks for your review. I'm glad your guests enjoyed the gazebo and 20seven, even though they had a hard time finding it. We will be sure to put out additional directional signs in the future. Thank you for that feedback. Your wedding turned out beautifully and the extra details you put into the reception really made it shine. You were a pleasure to work with and we hope to see you back at the Buena Vista Palace soon!

We had our reception in their club, 20seven. It was a beautiful room that didn't require much decorating. The food was great and the staff was very nice. Their wedding coordinator was very helpful. My only problem was they require all of your vendors to be licensed and insured so my maid of honors mom couldn't make our cake. The guest rooms were a little expensive but what can you expect from Disney property.

It was great how the hotel took care of everything, including the ceremony & reception venue, bar service, white glove service, table linens, center pieces, dance floor, EVERYTHING! I only had to hire a photographer, DJ, my cake and bridal party bouquets/flowers. There is a beautiful backdrop at the ceremony with a lake and gazebo in the background. Great for pictures!

The Spa was separate, but they were able to do a total of 11 women's hair and make up. Everyone's hair turned out amazing, and the make up was very elegant and beautiful. Not overdone, and Judie Lynn in the Spa was VERY accommodating to me.
