Saturday Is The Day! (Disney Proposal)

I am excited!

My GF and I signed up months ago for the Expedition Everest Challenge and decided we wanted to take her niece and nephew to experience Disney for the first time. When it turned into her entire family going I decided what better time than then to propose?

So here is the ring:

So here is the plan:
This is going to be a surprise to her (even though she has been hinting for 6 months that it was time for me to make it official ). She is so wrapped up in the race and the logistics of making everything work on the trip I honestly don't think she has even the slightest clue.

I have already spoke to the father and got his permission and her family is in on the secret as well. I have a sister who is a cast member with some connections and her BF is also a cast member.

Now the fun part! I have paid for my mother and father to fly down the day before. My sister's BF will take them into Magic Kingdom right when it opens at 9:00. They will then wait at the train depot at Main Street. We will leave Ft. Wilderness at 9:00 so we arrive a little after them and my sister will meet us. Magic Kingdom was blocked out so she is using comp tickets to get myself and my GF in.. the rest of her family already has their tickets. After my sister gets us in we will go to make our Fast Pass Reservations and her family has been instructed that they are going to "go ahead and get in line for the train".

Once atop the station my sister has a photographer set up. I purchased Memory Maker under the pretense we can take all the family photos as well as ride photos, but in honesty this was the plan all along. When we climb the steps she will see her entire family, my mom and dad, and a photographer waiting and behind her I will get on one knee.

My DS got engaged by the rose garden on 6/10/13 and I know all the hard work and planning he put into that, so don't stress at all, it'll all go over as it should.

Congrats! The ring is beautiful! And it sounds like a great plan!

My DH proposed after Wishes last year... it did not go at all as planned for him, but it was still just as magical for me and was very memorable.

He was first stampeded by guests, before all the college girls around us realized what was going on and started screaming. This made him so nervous that he opened the box up upside down and said nothing (when he had a speech planned). I was so overwhelmed and excited all I did was cover my face with my hands - nothing came out. But apparently no words were needed because a year later we were married!

If my husband wasn't sitting next to me I would have just cried (he would think I was insane lol). This is the most beautiful proposal ever. She is such a lucky girl. Congrats and good luck

Oh my gosh, your plan is beautiful and magical. You have really done a GREAT job planning, and the ring you chose is beautiful! She will be so happy that you've thought of all these aspects, and included your families in this special moment...and that there will be pictures!!!

I can't wait to hear how it goes, but it sounds like you've got all the bases covered! Good luck and enjoy your magical moment!!

That is very sweet! Surprise proposals are the best. I had no idea my husband was going to ask me. I remember like it was yesterday and that was 28 years ago. Have a great time and enjoy the moment! Hopefully it is one you will remember the rest of your life.

Sounds beautiful! I am a Disney fanatic (as. Most of us on this site are haha) so of course my now DF planned a special Disney/Wishes proposal for me..... It went all wrong haha! However regardless of that we got engaged and are happily planning out wedding and future Disneymoon!

She will be amazed at the thought and love you put into this! Even if things don't go as planned, she clearly has an amazing guy! Best of luck, let us know how it goes.
