Anyone who has seen Mariah Carey's episode of MTV "Cribs" knows this diva has an extravagant lifestyle. But she may have outdone herself with her vow renewal ceremony with husband Nick Cannon Tuesday.

To mark their fifth anniversary, the couple threw themselves a full-on wedding at Disneyland, complete with costumey attire (white princess-style dresses for Mimi and daughter Monroe, 2, and Prince Charming getups for Cannon and son, Moroccan, also 2), a horse-drawn carriage and 250 guests. Conveniently, April 30 also marks the twin's birthday, making the day extra special.

They said "I do" (again) at Sleeping Beauty Castle, and the fairy tale-themed event concluded with fireworks, People reports. Cannon deejayed a reception in Fantasyland, made complete by 10,000 crystals and 15,000 flowers imported from South Africa. Guests even got to ride a few attractions at the amusement park that were kept open just for them.

While the "American Idol" judge (and Long Island native) and her beau look head-over-heels, it's important to remember the quality (or quantity) with which a couple renews their vows doesn't correlate with the strength of their marriage. Heidi Klum and Seal renewed their vows every single year and still ended up divorcing.

The castle locale can be rented after the park closes, which in spring is at 8 p.m., E! Online said Wednesday. The minimum cost is $135,000, which includes setup for a ceremony and reception.
Approximately 250 guests attended the reception in Fantasyland. They rode Matterhorn Bobsleds and the King Arthur Carousel and took in the Peter Pan and Snow White attractions, "ET" said.
