Elsewhere in this Forum there are postings from some members who have in fact married at WDW over the years. Whether they used the particular travel plan you mentioned, I don't know. People come and go from the site. You might want to privately message some who've posted in this Forum about having been married at WDW, using Mouseke-Messenger... But look at each of their Profiles. If it shows in their Profile they seem to be actively logging on currently, good bet is that they will receive your message and offer some ideas if they can. But if it seems months, or years, since they've logged on, then don't bother. The nature of the Internet is that people come and go all the time.
We do have an active travel agent who is both a member and advertiser. Click on her link at the top of this page, and feel free to contact her. She can at least look into details for you and give you some answers.
And even if you chose not to do that, but wanted to work directly with Disney about your wedding and wedding travel plans, I'm sure that Disney's services with wedding planning plus travel planning for that will be solid, reputable, a positive consumer experience.
That might also mean the prices and arrangements and amenities quoted to you by Disney, if you're on a budget, "are what they are" and some compromising and honing down to stay within budget might mean some hard choices. Or it might mean that if you delayed for a few months, or a year, that you'd gather the additional budget necessary to accomplish some aspect of the overall vision your have for your nuptials and reception. Meaning: Be flexible, if possible, as much as you can be. Flexibility can mean positive breakthroughs that make the whole affair come togethermostly the way you would be hoping for if not 100%.
But it also means that once you start doing business with Disney you're working with a class act, once your contract is signed and once you and Disney are on "same pages" on how to proceed, I've heard nothing but stellar compliments that Disney follows through on plans, very little goes wrong, and you can trust them. They host umpteen galore of hundreds, even thousands, of weddings on the property every year. They are experienced at it.
You might want to give our travel agent member a contact, as well as call down to Disney Weddings in Orlando, and get the ball rolling on what your questions are, your plans are, your time line is, what your budget is, if you're willing to compromise on that budget by adjusting it up or down, if you want to travel down to Orlando and meet with the Disney wedding planners there to discuss further, and just start the general inquiry moving forward. At least then you'll gather and then know certain facts, and with certainty comes clear sure direction and confidence.
