Fairy Tales Come True at Newly Designed Franck
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Franck’s Bridal Studio at Walt Disney World Resort has undergone a major enhancement, bringing high-tech tools to couples tying the knot at the popular wedding destination.
Franck’s, named after the wedding planner character Martin Short played in the film “Father of The Bride,” was built 15 years ago alongside Disney’s magical Wedding Pavilion. The Victorian summerhouse was created as a one-stop shop for couples to meet with a Disney wedding planner to review all the details for the big event. The immersive studio showcases cakes, linens, floral, table settings and other details for a dream-come-true affair.
A highlight of the Franck’s makeover involves online tools to assist with remote planning, including a Facebook application (http://apps.facebook.com/Disney-weddings
) so couples can easily share details of their wedding with friends and family. The tools also allow guests to accept RSVPs and purchase tickets and room nights. Using Google Earth images and video, the Virtual Venue Tool brings storybook wedding and reception venues at Disney to life with the click of a mouse.
Two new planning rooms, additional computers and televisions, and newly designed furnishings round out the elegant setting.
