The Acre is within reach of Disneyworld and Universal Studios, the beaches of Daytona and Cocoa, Florida’s Space Coast, and natural wonders like Central Florida’s crystalline springs and verdant national parks. Experience Orlando naturally at The Acre.
The Acre is equipped for small and large events and weddings.
Services and Venue Rental Additions
The Acre is equipped with a full kitchen, commercial grade freezer, sound and audio equipment, lights, and as access to catering, table/chair rentals and more. All event and wedding services are available al-a-carte and may be added to your venue rental upon planning.
Sound & Music
What’s a celebration without music? We’ll help make your wedding truly special by connecting you with talented Orlando professionals. From wedding coordinators to event DJs and musicians, we can help you get ready for your big day. The Acre has an experienced sound team available, and all of the equipment you’ll need for DJs and full bands. Plug-and-play music capability is already included in all of our packages (if you prefer to DJ from an iPhone), with flat rates available for additional services like hiring our sound techs or renting equipment. The Acre can connect you to musicians, magicians and dancers … even acrobats.
We can provide you with an on-staff wedding officiant ($150), or help connect you to local religious and non-religious officiants. Our staff notary can witness documents, as well ($25).
The Acre encourages you to make your wedding as locally-grown as possible. Our preferred caterers work with local farmers, bakers and brewers. We’re happy to suggest our current favorites to you. We encourage you to pick a caterer with a liquor license (if you need us to arrange one instead, the flat fee for this service is $200). Otherwise, we can connect you directly to vendors, rather than offering these services ourselves at a marked-up price. Bagged ice is available on-site for a nominal fee. At The Acre, there are no hidden fees or surprise charges.
Although The Acre has chairs, tables and linens (for up to 200), your event will likely require a tent, porta-johns (for parties with 50 or more guests) and lighting. We keep a list of preferred vendors with past event experience at The Acre. Need tables, chairs or linens? We’ll give you a quote specific to your event size and guest count.
Setup & Strike
Need help with setup & strike? Our fast, professional team will set up tables and chairs, hang lights and break down your event. Hire us for a flat fee of $200.
Hourly Event Rental
Don’t need the extra set-up time? Rent The Acre Orlando for an hourly fee of $200/hour for up to 100 guests, or $250/hour for over 100 guests (up to 150).
To reserve your dates, we will need:
- A $300 non-refundable “Save Your Date” deposit (applies toward your package price)
- A deposit of 50% of your package total, due at the contract-signing
- A fully-refundable property damage deposit of $500 (returned after the event)
Deposits are non-refundable unless we’re notified in writing of your cancellation within 30 days from the contract-signing. Cancellations within this time frame are refundable, minus the $300 “Save Your Date” deposit. Deposits are forfeited completely if a cancellation occurs after 30 days from the contract-signing. Deposits are not transferable to other dates or events. The balance of your package total (the remaining 50% of the price) is due one month before the event. The fully-refundable $500 property damage deposit is also due one month before the event. Your property damage deposit is returned seven business days after the event.
