Hi everyone. :wave2: I am new to this site but want to share my engagement with fellow Disney fans. My DF proposed to me in the Magic Kingdom at Sir Mickey's at 2:00 am December 31, 2008!! HE was waiting all day (and walked around from 6:00 am when we got on the plane from NY and all day in the park with the ring in his pocket) for the right time to propose (he does not like to plan things, he is a fly by night kind of person) We finally see Mickey and Minnie together. During the holidays, they come out late at night and there is usually a photopass guy there. I thought we were done taking pictures and went to hug Mickey goodbye. I hear Tom say "let's take one more picture" and when I turned around, there he was on his knee with the ring!!! It was so sweet and romantic. The photopass guy was great and got the entire engagement, like 30 pictures! I want to find out who he is and might see if I can call Disney to find out.

So now we are trying to decide wedding plans. We both want to get married in Disney so bad but it all depends on how much it will be. I see on here that people are able to do at least 50 people for about 15,000-20,000 which is what I am looking to do. I want to get married at the WP but DF thinks we do not have enough people and it will look bad in pictures. I am awaiting a call back from a wedding coordinator, so once I speak to them I will go from there. Any advice...I am willing to take it!

Congratulations! What a nice engagement story!!

Now prepare to become addicited to the DISboards!:rotfl2:

I would say you could do 50 for that price range, but it all depends on what you want for your wedding and what your expectations for. I know of at least 2 brides who stayed within a few hundred dollars of the 10,000 minimum. If you start adding characters and Cindy's coach, that's where you start spending money!

This site is invaluable for researching for your wedding. Also check out www.mouseweddings.com or www.******************** for more info. These are unofficial sites, so don't rely on prices too much.

Good Luck with your planning!:flower3:

Thanks! Congrats to you too. Yes Mickey and Minnie were actually next to us. Minnie started shaking so bad. It was really really cool. As soon as I get to 10 posts, I will post the pics. We had been up for almost 24 hours at that point, so I look a hot mess-lol also i was crying but I am so happy that I have the pictures!

Congratulations! Don't worry about the Pavilion looking silly with only 50 people - have it if your heart is set on it :) We are having the WP and will have no more than about 20 people :thumbsup2

That is a sweet story! Congratulations. I think the wedding pavilion would be fine despite not having a large guest count. That site has gorgeous light inside and is worth not having the pews filled!

I agree. We had 37 people total, including us and our MoH and BestMan and our Minister and the WP did not feel empty. It is such a gorgeous space that you shouldn't compromise on it because of the number of guests. :goodvibes LOVE your siggie pic and can't wait to hear more!
