Proposal Postponed predicament. Advice/help?

So here's the story. I had a vacation booked for August 25th weekend and was planning to propose to my girlfriend during dinner at Narcoossee's (fireworks time slot). However my mother ended up being in the hospital due to some serious complications from surgery and I had to postpone the trip. Now I have it rescheduled for the weekend of September 29th, and plan on enjoying Epcot's Food and Wine Festival. Needless to say I can't seem to get the same sort of ADR on this short notice it seems. After talking myself out of some other ideas and being really excited about doing it at Narcoossee's, I'm now somewhat at a loss for ideas.
Do you think I could work something out by calling the restaurant? And does anyone have any other ideas more in the Epcot realm since we'll be spending most of our time there now? She has specifically said she wouldn't want it to be something too big and public.

If this is the wrong section please redirect me. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the idea Mrs. Ciz, although I think Victoria and Albert's will be a little bit outside of my price range. I'm a college student and the unexpected trip to cleveland for the past few weeks ate a pretty decent hole in my budget.

Since you'll be at Epcot, what about the San Angel Inn? It looks very romantic, starry sky and all. It's better on the wallet too.

Sending prayers for your mom's recovery as well.

What about going over to the Polynesian beach and watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks from there? I'm picturing the whole down on one knee in the sand, explosions over head, romance in the air type of thing.

Regardless, congratulations and welcome to the DIS!

A 7:45pm opened up at Narcoossee's!! Back to the original plan, I am so thankful. In 24 hours we'll be all packed and hopefully sleeping so we can get an early start.
