Last week, Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon turned their love story into a true fairy tale.

The duo shut down Disneyland and got decked out in Princess and Prince Charming gear to renew their vows for their fifth wedding anniversary, an elaborate ceremony that Cannon was happy to talk about when he stopped by E! News today.

"Last year, we did the kids' first birthday and our fourth wedding anniversary in Paris in the Eiffel Tower, so it was like, 'How are we gonna top that?'" he told Terrence Jenkins


"And the thing was, that was great, but we didn't have the opportunity to invite family and friends because we were out there, so we were like, this time, we need a place that everyone can come to. And, you know, shut down Disneyland."

Carey's hubby also revealed that it was a shared idea to wear costumes, explaining, "We both like to dress up, that's what we love to do and that's keeping that fun going."

But such a fantastical vow renewal will be hard to top on their sixth anniversary, he admits.

"I don't know what we're gonna do next year, I think we're just gonna keep it simple. Maybe we'll do hillbilly wedding or something," Cannon joked.

The actor also dished the deets on his upcoming E! special honoring two of the dearest people in his life—his grandparents.

"I grew up in Section 8 housing and my grandmother and grandfather helped raise me," he told us. "Once I made a little bit of money, I bought them a house, but I never got an opportunity to kinda finish it. We did this thing where it's a big surprise where I had to pull my grandparents out of that house and finally got the opportunity to redecorate."
