There’s nothing more romantic for a Disney affectionado than a Disney engagement. While there are no solid numbers on how many happy couples are betrothed at Disney each year, we can safely say it is “a lot.”
Hey, I got engaged there myself…
If you’ve met your soulmate and want to turn your Disney experience into an unforgettable memory, then be sure to check out some of these amazing ideas to help inspire the perfect Disney proposal.
10 Romantic Disney Proposal Ideas
1. Hire the Disney Romance Professionals
First and foremost (and our personal recommendation), hire the Disney Fairytale Engagements team to help you plan and execute on the perfect Disney proposal. This might include access to an otherwise inaccessible or VIP location or even enable special character involvement in the occasion.
2. Capture the Perfect Moment with Photopass
Create the perfect engagement photo and capture their first reaction when you bend down on one knee allowing the photographer to capture the shot of a lifetime. Be sure to make the PhotoPass Cast Member aware of your romantic intentions so that they can be ready to snap the picture-perfect moment.
3. Make their Wish Come True at the Wishing Well
Listen to the songs of Snow White echoing from the magical wishing well in this tranquil setting while you tell your true love your one wish for a happily ever after.
4. Propose in a Hand Drawn Sketch
Let the sketch artists at Disneyland Park help you create a special and unique proposal. Be sure to enlist the artist’s help in advance by calling the Disney travel line for the park you are visiting.
5. Make Your Dining Experience Magical
Disney Parks are known for having some of the finest dining and immersive experiences in the world. Whether it’s a “Be Our Guest” inspired proposal, or pretending to dine in France, a Disney proposal at one of the many dining venues tops the list. Just be certain to make ADRs (Advanced Dining Reservations) and let your servers know your plans ahead of time. They can even help you present the ring by bringing it out on its own special plate.
6. Take a Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride
Make your significant other feel like a real-life Cinderella by proposing to them while riding around Disney World in a beautiful horse-drawn carriage.
7. Make the Castle Your Romantic Backdrop
The castles at Disney parks are gorgeous backdrops for any photo op, and you’ll always remember your proposal if one of the iconic castles makes it into your pictures.
8. Get a Little Help From Your Disney Friends
If meeting your favorite Disney character wasn’t enough, make it even more special by popping the question while your partner is taking photos with the character.
9. Spark Your Own Fireworks
The real magic of Disney comes out at night, when the castle is aglow and the fireworks go off. To create some fireworks for our own, propose in the middle of the show.
10. Hoop Dee “I Do!” Proposal
Go to the Hoop Dee Doo Revue dinner show. When the cast ask whether anyone is celebrating anything, raise your hand and say that you’d like to celebrate if your partner agrees to become your betrothed. Then propose.
