Metselaar told Insider the afterparty, which she said started at 11 p.m. and had around 285 guests, was “insanely magical,” adding, “We danced until 3 a.m. and no one wanted the night to end. It was unlike any wedding I’ve ever experienced.”

Many commenters under Metselaar’s TikTok speculated about how much a wedding at Disney World would have cost.

One commenter suggested it must cost around “$250,000” while another wrote, “that must be 50 trillion dollars.” One comment with 147,000 likes said, “We’re in different tax brackets.”

According to the Disney World Florida website, customers can book out parts of the resort to host weddings and parties. It states that the Magic Kingdom Park section can accommodate up to 300 guests and can be reserved for a fee of $30,000. Wedding packages at the Four Seasons in the resort for over 50 people cost $209 per person, according to the website.

Other commenters said they were surprised by the large crowds of people that appeared to be dancing beside the castle.

“Everyone’s worried about being too poor, I’m wondering how you KNOW this many people to invite!? What’s y’alls social lives like,” one comment with 5,000 likes said.

On Instagram, Metselaar posted a slideshow of pictures and videos she said were from the afterparty. They showed people dressed as Mickey and Minnie Mouse interacting with crowd members during what appeared to be a party and tagged a woman called Alexis James, who she said was the bride.

She also shared pictures from what appears to be a wedding ceremony on her feed, where she wore a ballgown style dress with a veil that had the words, “they lived happily ever after” written on it.

Metselaar told Insider that she and James have been friends since they were teenagers, and added, “She’s always been a Disney fanatic! It was no question in anyone’s mind that she would have her wedding at Disney.”
