We are getting married in Disney World and we are getting ready to send our Save the Dates in the next little while. Most of our family/friends already know the date, so the actual Save the Dates are more for fun than anything else. However, when we send those, I’d also like to send out some information Disney. So far, I have included in the packages:
- Info on the room block we have reserved
- Maps for each of the Disney parks
- Info on discounted park tickets available through group sales
I’m wondering whether we should be including anything else though? Some of our guests will have never been to Disney, so I feel like I should ‘prepare’ them. So, if you were a guest at a Disney wedding, what would you hope to find included with the Save the Dates to make trip planning easier?

Do you have a wedding website? I am getting married in Mexico and I put together a website with some information about Mexico and booking rooms, etc. I put this website on the save the dates so that I didn’t have to include a ton of information on them. Hope this helps!!

When I made our passport Save the Dates for St. Thomas, I included average weather info, time zone info, and flight info. You might want to include nearby Florida attractions, restaurants, other things to do outside of Disney if some people will be staying for a week or more– Universal, Sea World, etc. OH… and you may want to warn them about the tolls if anyone will be driving. Florida– Orlando in particular, lol– is FULL of tolls, so having cash handy is a must.

I did the same thing as @kitkat863, having a wedding website where guests can go to read all the information that’s needed is super helpful and everyone has loved it! I included the web address on our save the dates.

I put all info about the wedding on our wedding website and just put the date and place on the save the dates along with the web address.
On the site I put:
List of other events guests were invited to (Rehearsal Dinner & Day After Brunch)
That way the save the date could be a single card and all the info would be at the guests’ disposal on the website when they were ready to book.

For the wedding website – We are only expecting about 30 people, but I assume most destination weddings are pretty small. I hadn’t thought the website would be worth it, but you’re all starting to change my mind. Did your guests actually use the site?

@smiles4jo: I’m only having about 20 people come to mine and to be honest I’m not sure if people really looked at the site. I did it so that there would be a place with all of the information on there and the travel agent’s info but most people ended up asking me what the info was anyways. I could see how many views the site had but I was probably the majority of the views! I used shutterfly that way after the wedding people could upload their pics from the wedding on there and share. Hopefully people will do that since I will want pictures!
