Ultimate Guide to Disney World Bachelorette Parties
The hysterical wedding comedy Bride Wars teaches us a lot about friendships and the stresses that coincide with planning a wedding, though it’s most important lesson is that “June at the Plaza” is basically the be-all end-all of wedding timing and location in New York City. Disney World bachelorette parties are magical too!
June is here, and the myriad of weddings happening all around me over the past few weeks tells me, so it must be wedding season! The Plaza is a gorgeous setting to say “I do”, and I can tell you that its host city is any newlywed couples’ dream location to celebrate, but just one day of celebrations isn’t going to cut it for the most important event of your life!
A summer wedding at Walt Disney World is almost as coveted as June at the Plaza, and if you’re one of the many couples putting the finishing touches on your Walt Disney World wedding day plans, this article was created with you in mind! Brides: you’ve made the choice to have a destination wedding, and your bridal party has agreed to join you in Florida for the big day.
If you haven’t thought of celebrating your last few days of being single at Walt Disney World Resort- or if you have and just don’t know where to start- grab your girls and a bottle of champagne, because you’re going to have a bachelorette celebration you’ll never forget this summer!
Inside the Parks
The bachelorette weekends I’ve been to were made up of over-the-top outfits and empty bottles of wine, and while they were definitely fun, ‘memorable’ is not the word I’d use to describe them…and there is much more than excess wine to blame for that!
Take your bridal party to the parks for a heck of a celebration! When the day of your party finally arrives, you’ve worked so hard to make sure you’re going to look like a princess on the big day that it’s due time you start feeling like one, too! Head to Magic Kingdom with your girls and take Fantasyland by storm! You can get your wedding-day inspiration from Princess-themed attractions like Enchanted Tales with Belle and Journey Under the Sea!
You’re getting married in the year 2019 and if I know one thing, it’s that your wedding has its very own social media hashtag! Magic Kingdom is the park to go to for the best photo backdrops of any park. Photopass photographers are located in each land through Magic Kingdom and are ready to capture high-res photos of you and your friends’ shenanigans as you romp through the park.
Pick up a famous Disney treat like a Dole Whip or Mickey Pretzel and strike a silly pose for a memorable shot, or head on over to Tomorrowland and grab the new purple wall-inspired drink that was made to perfectly match the hue of that Insta-famous wall!
Even though you’ll be partying in Walt Disney World, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of adult-geared ways to celebrate your nuptials. Since you’re celebrating your bachelorette party, you’ve got a whole band of party-ready girls by your side, so put them to good use! There are traditional cocktails aplenty around the Resort, but a party like this calls for the biggest and most wild concoctions of them all!
At The Wave, take your friends to the bar for a Seven Seas Lagoon. The giant cocktail draws inspiration from body of water the restaurant sits along, and its sheer size will be enough to make your friends’ jaws sink to the bottom of the lake! The enormous cocktail comes with 2 straws…but don’t underestimate its power, there are plenty of big drinks still to come, and I strongly suggest splitting this one more than 2 ways.
Over at Trader Sam’s, the Nautilus, served in a gargantuan submarine shaped glass, features a tropical juice blend, liqueurs for flavor, and my favorite of all dark liquors: rum. Actually, not just one, but two types of rum are blended with the rest of the ingredients, making this cocktail as strong as the storms passing by the windows outside. This is another drink (smartly) served with two straws, so a sharing buddy is a must.
My favorite colossal cocktail at Walt Disney World Resort can be found just one story above Trader Sam’s. Climb the stairs in the Polynesian’s lobby and order a Lapu Lapu at Kona Café’s bar! Pineapple juice, orange juice, and a concoction of rums replace the usual fruit in the middle of a freshly-hollowed pineapple for a drink so festive and so strong, your mind will trick you into thinking you’re relaxing on the beach in Polynesia!
The Best Party Atmospheres
It’s your last night before you’re married, and you want to surround yourself with the funniest and craziest friends you have to experience that carefree single life until the sun comes up! At Disney Springs, my favorite late night spot for a high class, throwback entertainment is The Edison.
You and your friends can sip on their signature cocktails and, if you’re visiting on the weekends, experience the art of high-flying acrobats as they twist and twirl their way through the chic industrial space!
For a more traditional bar atmosphere with a little added Disney magic, Raglan Road is my recommendation! This traditional Irish bar is aflush with guests of all ages and live entertainment during dinner hours, but visit late at night for amped up musical acts and a classic twist on an electric bar vibe!
You’re in the final prep stages for the big day now, and after all of your partying adventures, you’re going to want to spruce yourself up and give that pristine white dress a run for its money! Treat yourself and your bridal party to a spa day at one of the many options across the Resort.
The spas at Disney’s Wilderness lodge and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge are my two favorites as they are always less crowded than the super popular Grand Floridian, which almost guarantees you’ll get more attention and possibly even a longer service!
We can help you book a day at the spa of your choosing ahead of the big day, so leave us a comment below and let us know what you’re most looking forward to doing before your big day! Grooms-to-be…stay tuned, your guide to the perfect bachelor party is on the way!
