    Disneyland rolls out new pumpkin-shaped Cinderella carriage for $180,000 fairy tale weddings
    • October 11, 2023

    A ride in a new Cinderella-inspired pumpkin-shaped royal coach during a fairy tale wedding in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle will cost the father of the bride about $5,000 — but that’s chump change when you’re dropping $180,000 on a Disneyland wedding.

    The new Cinderella Platinum Coach joins a fleet of royal carriages available for couples who spring for the wedding of a lifetime at the Anaheim theme park, according to Disney Weddings.

    Disneyland has not yet announced a price for the Cinderella Platinum Coach or a date when the new royal coach will be available to rent.

    Disney Weddings rents the current Crystal Coach for $4,500 per ceremony, according to the Married at Disneyland website. That’s more than twice as much as the $1,900 brides spend on average for a wedding dress, according to The Knot.

    The newest Disneyland wedding carriage pays tribute to Disney’s 1950 “Cinderella” animated film and the magical pumpkin coach that transported the servant-turned-princess to and from the Royal Ball.

    The new Cinderella Platinum Coach — which can be used exclusively by marrying couples arriving to and departing from their Disneyland wedding ceremony — takes its platinum name from the Disney100 celebration of the company’s 100th anniversary.

    Disney designers looked to real-life royal carriages for proportional, decorative and structural details and studied 18th century Rococo designs to evoke an era of royal elegance with the new wedding carriage.

    The new royal coach joins a fleet of Disney Weddings royal carriages that include the Crystal Coach and vis-a-vis carriages.
