Fairytale Weddings Not for Same-sex Couples

5 Mar

When you wish upon a star, does it matter who you are?

AfterElton.com reports on a story which has been on my mind lately too . . . Disney’s Magic Kingdom Closed to Same-Sex Weddings. From the article:

On the Feb. 20th episode of The View, well-known wedding planner David Tutera appeared on the talk show to promote his David Tutera Couture Wedding Collection at Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Fla. The collection allows the happy couple to choose between four elaborate wedding styles: classic elegance, simply chic, cocktail soiree and whimsical garden.

But are those weddings available if there are two brides or two grooms? Short answer: no. According to Walt Disney World spokesperson Jason DiPietre, Disney’s Florida property requires a valid Florida marriage license in order to offer their services.

But getting that answer was far from a straightforward task, as the Walt Disney World Weddings website and the Disney consultants at first gave confusing, often contradictory information to AfterElton.com’s questions.

The fact is, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings and Honeymoons offers wedding ceremonies, not marriage licenses. The two things are legally completely separate; no license is legally required or necessary for such a ceremony to take place.

Disneyland didn’t fare much better here, though they do offer a separate and unequal set of services for “commitment ceremonies” for domestic partners. Only opposite-sex couples are permitted access to the most coveted wedding location.

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    IN THE APRIL 13, 2007 USA TODAY PAPER I READ ABOUT THE FAIRY TALE WEDDINGS FOR SAME SEX COUPLES, AND ALSO ABOUT THE GUIDE TO DISNEY FOR HOMOSEXUALS.

    HOW BLATANT CAN THIS AGENDA BECOME. IF THE GAYS WANT DISNEY SO MUCH, AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED, THEY CAN HAVE IT. I FEEL IT IS AN ABONMINATION TO VISIT DISNEY AND BE SUBJECTED TO SOMETHING I KNOW IS IMMORAL. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO GOOD SOLID FAMILY VALUES AT DISNEY?? WHEN I VISITED DISNEY LAST WITH MY CHILDREN, NOW GROWN, IT WAS A DELIGHT. NOW, I WOULD NOT THINK TO BRING MY GRANDCHILDREN TO VIIST. DISNEY CAN AND HAS DONE WHATEVER THEY WANTED TO DO WITH THIS PARK, BUT UNTIL SOMEONE REALIZES HOW DEMORALIZED IT HAS BECOME, IT WILL NO LONGER BE CONSIDERED A PLACE THAT PROMOTES FAMILY VALUES. IN MY ESTIMATION IT HAS BECOME JUST THE OPPOSITE. IT IS A PLACE WHERE EVERYTHING AND ANYONE IS ALLOWED TO DO WHATEVER THEY FEEL IS GOOD FOR THEM. THEREIN LIES THE MORAL DECAY.

    Wow, usually when somebody comments in “all caps” I figure they’re just not nettiquette-savvy, but in this case I’m pretty sure Dorothy means to shout.
