A moonlight stroll or leisurely cruise upon the waterways will take you to the international delights of Epcot® or the special effects of Disney-MGM Studios. The charm of the Magic Kingdom® Park is just outside your door. You’re adjacent to Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district and minutes from Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park and Downtown Disney. Walk down the aisle beside the courtyard fountain, with harp music drifting through the landscaped garden. Host a lakeside hors d’oeuvre reception beneath the stars or a traditional four-course sit-down dinner in the elegant banquet room. Wave your wand for glorious cakes and floral bouquets, ice sculptures, valet parking and musical accompaniments, as you wish.
