Walt Disney Co. has changed its policy to allow same-sex couples to participate in a popular Fairy Tale Wedding program it runs mainly at its two U.S. resorts AND cruise line, a Disney
spokesman said this week!

Disney previously had allowed gay couples to organize their own weddings or commitment ceremonies at rented meeting rooms at the resorts, but had barred them from purchasing its Fairy Tale Wedding package and holding the event at locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World that are set aside specifically for weddings.

“We are updating our Fairy Tale Wedding guidelines to include commitment ceremonies,” Disney Parks and Resorts spokesman Donn Walker said. “This is consistent with our policy of creating a welcoming, respectful and inclusive environment for all of our guests.”

Disney’s Fairy Tale Wedding packages start at $8,000 and include a wedding planner, the ceremony, food and beverages, flowers and table decorations. – It better be fabulous!


LAS VEGAS has been welcoming gay ceremonies for a couple years now. Gay Chapel of Las Vegas is Las Vegas’s only gay owned and operated ceremony chapel. “We take pride in offering the finest facilities available to our community”.  Several other chapels in the city also welcome gay unions. And if you really want to whoop it up,  HARRAHS CORP  which runs Caesars, Flamingo, Rio and  Paris, all offer same-sex union packages!  (Treasure Island was offering packages – I don’t know if they still are or not, but I would assume all of the WYNN hotels offer something…)  I had a couple friends who got hitched at Paris and had their cake done by the famed Parisian baker LeNotre! Talk about fabulous! And they said Paris was super gay-friendly!

  Getting back to Disney for a moment – Jeffrey Epstein and Eddie Shapiro’s “Queens in the Kingdom: The Ultimate Gay & Lesbian Guide to the Disney Theme Parks,” has just come out now in a revised and expanded second edition.

The book features more than 400 pages of tips on optimum visiting times, prime gay and lesbian Disney attractions and even the best places to share a gay kiss without suffering Ursula’s wrath. “Queens in the Kingdom” is campier than Tinkerbell, but answers each and every question that a gay Disney lover could ever have.
