If you’re the kind of Disney prince or princess who has always dreamed of a fairytale wedding in front of the world’s most iconic [sculpture of a] baobab tree, your wildest dreams are about to come true.

Orlando’s Walt Disney World just added three new wedding options for venue consideration: The Tree of Life in the Animal Kingdom; the 750-acre pine forest at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, which comes with an incredible view of the Seven Seas Lagoon; and the Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

We’re particularly enamored with the Animal Kingdom option. The iconic Tree of Life is the focal point of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, standing 145 feet tall and carved with nearly 400 animals including elephant trunk branches and snake-shaped roots. At night, rainbow light projections bring the safari to life by illuminating various different animals by turn. The area surrounding the tree sculpture is lush with bright greenery and exotic flowers, and the venue can be lit up with candles and tiki lanterns to further up the romance level — can you feel the love tonight?!

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to claim the honor of being the first to wed here, as lucky lovers Greg and Lorina already wed in front of the Tree of Life last summer as one of the featured couples in Disney’s Fairytale Weddings TV show.

Booking details are scarce, but if you just can’t wait to be married, reach out to Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and Honeymoons division to get the ball rolling. Hakuna matata!
