I saw this YouTube video of a guy who proposed to his girlfriend in Cinderella's Royal Suite. He told his fiancé he had arranged a tour. I feel like that's a once in a lifetime experience that would be so special without a ton of people around. Disney might be able to arrange it if you call. Check out the video it's really good!

First, I would do it in the beginning of the trip. This way you are not over thinking it the entire time and she gets to enjoy the feeling of being engaged the whole trip.

Second, make sure the ring is insured before you leave. Adding it to homeowners would be easiest for now.

If you want to use the Beast castle, night might have less people and I bet the pictures would be beautiful. Another option for inside the castle, see if you can get a last minute ADR for after 9pm. Tell her it is so you can share a dessert before fireworks. Propose and then enjoy the fireworks.

At the resorts you can book private time with a photographer. It has to be scheduled but I think the service was free. Maybe the GF/poly? This way you both are dressed nicely/prepared for photos, the photographer knows ahead and knows the most scenic places to take pictures. You can just tell her it is for a Christmas card, photo for your parents, portrait for your house....then surprise her.

Personally, I also like the rose garden idea.

My husband did the same thing-about halfway through the trip on my birthday, at dinner at the California Grill. It was very romantic. There are a million and one ways probably, to propose at Disney. I think you have to decide:

a) private or public (photog or not)
b) where it would mean the most to her (probably anywhere) but you mentioned she likes Beauty and the Beast, so maybe by Beast's Castle.

I think anywhere you choose, she will be over the moon-you sound like a very romantic person, so I'm sure it will be perfect. Please update us!

Fly down with tinker bell during the fireworks screaming the question.


Have a cannon fire the ring at the boat on POTC.

Man, Disney could make a fortune if they could do these ideas!

Later,

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

We saw a couple get engaged at California Grill during the MK fireworks. There was a big crowd of us on the observation deck watching the fireworks when he made the proposal surrounded by family and friends.

Twas very nice and I wonder how many of his family and friends knew he was going to propose.

Later,
Dan

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Thanks! I love the open grass with no random people distracting from the photos, despite it being mid-summer with level 8 crowds. You can still see some people, of course, but they're definitely not a focal point.

OK, so I called the Disney Florist today, and the front desk of our hotel. They gave me some of the same ideas I've read here. I'm starting to get a good idea as to how I'll surprise her. However, my gf is tact-sharp, so if I even slightly deviate from my "normality" she'll immediately know something's up. 2.5 years of breaking her balls, jumping out at random and scaring the crap out of her, and always pulling pranks, she's gotten attuned to my behaviors. lol I'm leaning towards the beach at the Grand Floridian near sunset, or the Rose Garden for the shear backdrop of the castle. She loves photo-ops, so it wouldn't be out of the norm to give someone our cameras and phones and ask them to take a lot of pictures. If I can whisper to them what I'm about to do, and to keep a straight face, I can have the iPhone rolling video, and have them shoot a bunch of shots with the dlsr. We rarely use the Photopass people, so if I go out of my way to grab one she might think that's odd of me, and wonder why. Two more days to sleep on this and then I'll make-up my mind. Thank you all again!

Awesome! Thanks! We're staying at All Star Music, and don't get in til about 5:30 PM on Sunday. Normally we go swimming the first night and just relax, but depending on the weather, I might try to get [her] to go with me to visit the Polly or Grand Floridian for their beach settings. If all else fails I'm gonna do it by the Rose Garden Monday morning after breakfast!
