    Disney to allow Same Sex Fairy-Tale Weddings

    http://today.reuters.com/news/articl...src=rss&rpc=22

    The Walt Disney company changed it's tune on Fairy-Tale weddings. The program is being updated to also perform commitment ceremonies at it's North American Parks and on the Disney Cruise Line.

    Disney had previously allowed couples to have Vow Renewal ceremonies but not the full wedding packages since they needed a "Valid" marriage license, which same-sex couples cannot get in Florida or California.

    Disney Fairy-Tale Weddings start at around $8,000.

    Re: Disney to allow Same Sex Fairy-Tale Weddings

    I heard about this on the radio the this morning. Such exciting news.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

    This is great news! I have often wondered how Disney handled requests before.

    Too bad if I want to legally marry though I have to stay here in Massachusetts.

    Re: Disney to allow Same Sex Fairy-Tale Weddings

    When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought it had something to do with the upcoming Jasmine and Aurora DVD.

    Re: Disney to allow Same Sex Fairy-Tale Weddings

    I'm glad they finally came around, but it seems like too little, too late. I don't want to be cynical, but it seems that they were realizing how much money they were missing out on, and decided to make the change based on that, instead of doing the right thing, from early on.

    Don't misunderstand me, I think this is long overdue, but I am disappointed that there was EVER a time when they would not allow same-sex weddings.
