From our unique culinary innovations to superb attention to detail, the Disney Meetings team creates magical moments every day that leave attendees feeling engaged and inspired. We are constantly looking for the latest and greatest way to provide incredible experiences to meeting, conference and event planners, and their attendees. And, one way that our event designers orchestrate these memorable moments is through the creation of stunning themed event experiences that completely immerse attendees into a specific season or holiday.

With the Fall season upon us, let’s hear from a Disney Event Consultant about some of the unique ways to infuse the natural beauty of the season into your next event. 

Consider substituting traditional banquet rounds for a long wooden dining table complete with warm, glowing candles and neutral floral detailing. 

“Deep earthy tones are on trend and can be incorporated with linens or a gorgeous wood table, centerpieces, and especially your menu,” said Sarah Kaczmarek, Disney Event Consultant. “By changing the style of dinner seating, you give your space an entirely different look and feel, reminiscent of a Fall harvest.”

Attendees can enjoy a bountiful harvest feast with a family-style menu featuring seasonal classics. Possible menu options include a carved-turkey action station accompanied by tasty accoutrements including pumpkin soup, truffle-infused quinoa and maple-glazed sweet potato. Round out the evening with a traditional Fall favorite such as a delicious apple cobbler or pecan pie.

“Be sure to incorporate texture such as leaves scattered on the table or a crinkle taffeta napkin at each place setting,” says Kaczmarek. “Slightly dimmed lighting in your meeting space and a hint of cinnamon and pumpkin in the air add those final elements that engage all of the senses and make for an incredible and unforgettable event.”

If you want to add an extra element, consider adding a larger-than-life Mickey topiary from our tree farm decorated with autumn flowers or consider having Mickey and Minnie wearing their finest pilgrim attire at dinner to greet your guests.
