So, a big aspect of any destination wedding is a hotel block. If we’re asking our nearest and dearest to make the trip, we want to offer them the best accommodations we can!
Fortunately, Disney offers a variety of hotels in different price points. Part of our contract with them is that we have to guarantee a total of 25 hotel nights from us and our guests—otherwise, we pay the difference.
That might sound scary at first…but when you do the math, it’s actually not scary at all. For one, we’re not just counting the night of the wedding—this includes any nights that are booked by our guests for nights surrounding our wedding. If Mr. L and I stay there a week…that’s 7 nights right there. Since we have ~120 guests…well, as you can see, 25 hotel nights is virtually nothing
We actually had to set up our hotel blocks BEFORE we signed our contract. Disney recommends you offer guests three different hotels to choose from—one ‘value’ resort, one ‘moderate,’ and one ‘deluxe.’

We actually decided to create room blocks at two deluxe hotels, one moderate, and one value. The reason we did this was because our ceremony and reception, which are quite close to each other, are technically at two different resorts.
