Congratulations to you!
We honeymooned at WDW and at the end of the day at MK, we were slowly strolling out of the park when they played "When You Wish Upon a Star" before turning up the lights. DH asked me for a dance in front of the castle. It was so romantic and we even caught a few bystanders snapping our picture. It was the perfect end to a perfect day and we still dance in front of the castle when we return every year. 10 years and two kids later I still look back on that moment as one of our the most romantic moments. It might be a perfect end to your day and a perfect start for your future!
Best wishes for your engagement and marriage!

More ideas:

Rent a boat at the lagoon then fall out pretending to drown. Come up later acting like you found something--a ring--- pop the question

Grab a turkey leg and take a huge bite into to it then pretend to choke-- spit out the ring from your mouth--- pop the question

Have her ride Expidition Everest alone, and reach out where the yeti is supposed to with the ring--- pop the question

Have her pick out any snow globe she wants, buy it, then drop it on the ground in the street. After it breaks, act like the ring was inside and that you found it--- pop the question

You had to have been elected class clown in high school!!

The ring is just beautiful and I am sure she will be very excited no matter what you choose to do.

I have actually watched a few videos of Disney proposals and there are some cute ones. There is one of a couple getting a character picture of them done and the artist wrote "will you marry me" on it so when it was finished and presented to them she freaked. It was cute.

I think a sweet place to do it would be by Cinderella's wishing well. Have her close her eyes and make a wish and when she opens them be on your knee with the ring in your hand.

The beach at the Poly or Grand Floridian during Wishes would be nice too.

There is a carriage ride at Port Orleans Riverside. That could be nice if you are wanting something more private.

You really can't mess up here because you will be at Disney. Anything you do will be magical.

Good luck!!

The ring is lovely! I would have dinner in France at Epcot and propose while watching Illuminations. That area of the park is nearly as romantic as Paris is.

We just checked into All Star Music. Got stuck in building 3, even though when I did the online registration I tried to get something closer. No biggie. Need the extra walk to burn off the extra calories I'll be putting down haha. Also, soon as we got into the room, I saw that our fridge was one of the ones not working and disconnected. Immediately called the Front Desk and luckily they had one to give us as a replacement. My parents are in the adjoining room, called right after me, and were unsuccessful trying to get one themselves. So as a family we're 50/50 on a working fridge.

Weather is great, and tomorrow looks amazing. News on when I pop the question coming soon! Thanks everyone!

-Ron

I know I'm late in the game, but I would have LOVED to be proposed to..

1. on the incline of Splash Mountain where it tells you to find your laughing place!!! But may be tricky showing her the ring..she may lose it on the ride down!

2. On the Soaring ride! Soaring into a new life together

3. At the fireworks at MK...right when Tinkerbell slides down

4. On the safari ride in AK...ready for a long trek together

Whatever you choose!! WAY TO GO! The ring is gahgeous!! And your parents will be there to help you celebrate

My sister in law did her renewals at the restaurant in France at Epcot. The rat from Rattitoue brought the ring out for dessert. I would imagine you would have to set it first, call disney and ask them how to do it and get it set up. Have fun and congrats.
