Not only are Disneyland and Disney World Resorts perfect destinations for families, newlywed couples of all ages are planning both their weddings and honeymoons at these famously fun destinations. It’s not very surprising when imagining the surprises that could be in store with some smart planning. Character guests. Carriage rides. There are seemingly endless ways to make magic with a Disney honeymoon registry.
It’s simple to create a custom Disney honeymoon wishlist with Honeymoon Wishes and share it with family and friends. All at no cost to the couple.
How Does a Disney Honeymoon Registry Work
Think of it like a traditional registry. But instead of pots and pans, a newlywed couple can choose from a wide variety of honeymoon experiences like custom experiences in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and shopping at Disney Springs. Once the registry is complete, friends and family can contribute as much or little as they like.
Delivered in the form of a Disney Gift Card, the funds can help offset the total cost of the honeymoon. A couple can collect contributions anytime and as often as they like. There are no service fees to create a registry or make withdrawals. Perhaps best of all, the gift card doesn’t expire should they be planning a future trip to Disney.
For friends and family, the gift card leaves them feeling confident that honeymoon funds are being spent at one of the affiliated hotels, parks and stores instead of on, for example, a kitchen remodel or utility bill. Those living abroad enjoy perks, too. Using exchange services such as PayPal, all of their contributions can be withdrawn in the U.S. without any additional fees.
