    Oh bless you, how lovely!

    It's a tricky one. As you've found out, I doubt that reservations etc would be much able to help with that sort of thing. I've never really heard of personal meet and greets being organised (which this would be essentially) and if they were, it may well cost more. I'm just guessing though.

    I think you'd probably have more luck if you spoke to City Hall, or maybe the reception in your hotel if staying onsite, when you're there. Otherwise maybe a kind DISer visiting before you could enquire on your behalf.

    If you really want Cinderella involved you might have the most luck during lunch at Auberge, though that might be a bit public for you.

    Personally, I think she'll be blown away with or without Cinderella. I think it would be wonderful to do it first thing in the morning during EMH when you almost have the parks to yourselves. I read a trip report where someone proposed and it sounded amazing!

    Good luck!

    I'd be sending an email to guest relations and going from there.
    dlp.communication.visiteurs@disney.com

    Cinderella doesn't have a meet and greet schedule and to see her you'd have to book either a meal at Auberge de Cendrillon or perhaps pay for a private meeting which starts at around 500€ for a character iirc for 15 mins. No idea how much a princess would be or even possibilty

    Good luck :)

    Thanks everybody,

    I rang city hall direct no joy they wanted me to ring business section :s and cust relations refered me to a park manager who cant help :/

    Ill try the email thanks

    Is it true theirs horse carraige rides at the entrance? Maybe il do that and then propose at the castle followed by dinner at the cinderella place with champagne etc already have my own little glass slipper ready :)

    If anyone from DLP reads these you really need to do proposal packages id certainly pay for the help

    En gros,

    They have received you email and thank you for it

    They are receiving increasing amounts of emails asking for information about DLP and ask you to be a little bit patient as the reply time will be longer than normal due to this.

    Be assured that they are doing the maximum posssible to minimise this wait

    They thank you for your patience and finish with one of the many French ways in letter writing of saying yours faithfully/sincerely :rotfl:

    It's a confirmation they received your message. They have an increased volume of e-mails to deal with and apologize in advance for any possible delay in getting back to you.

    EDIT: Or I should have typed more fast because Carrie's French is obviously better than mine. ;)

    Only advice I would give is if your staying at a Disney hotel, you might ask their guest services....they usually have the inside track on stuff.

    Is Cinderella her favourite charcter?

    If you just took the chance and queued in the pavilion and proposed with what ever princess you met you would also have the photographer there to capture the moment then celebrate with a nice meal I don't know what your price range is but California grill in the Disneyland hotel is lovely.

    Could you sneak away from your girl friend to may be have a chat with a cm at princess pavilion? Just tell them what you are up too.

    Sorry I can't help, but I just want to say how sweet your idea is. If I'm ever lucky enough to find a nice boyfriend that is how I want to be proposed to. Good luck! :)

    Thats the nicest thing! Just wanted to wish you well and be sure to come back with all the details as to how it goes.
    Another idea would be to propose while having dinner in the Disneyland hotel. Im sure you would have no problem getting a CM to keep a window table with a view of the park and maybe you could have the ring box brought out as dessert with will you marry wrote in chocolate around the edge...
    I know its not 100% original, am wracking my brain to remember what film its from!!

    Thankyou all for the messages :)

    Cinderella is her favourite character yes whats a cm? But thanks for the idea i may try that.

    Also the balcony sounds like a good idea but i wanted tto take a picture with the castle in the background

    And im planning to take her to the cinderella resturant see if they do champagne with dinner

    I just want to try make the day about her feeling like a princess all girls should have that atleast for a day and along comes prince charming ring in hand :)

    I think il have to try disapear when we arrive it was just very disheartening when i called city hall directly and the staff member had no idea how to help :(

    A cm is a cast member it's what they call their staff.

    I hope they reply soon then. DH proposed in WDW in the castle restaurant :) I agree that all girls should feel like a princess :)

    I hope you are able to sort this out as it sounds lovely. :)

    My DH proposed in front of the DLRP castle while we were the only 2 people in the park. It was wonderful.

    We were staying at the Pink Hotel and he went to concierge and explaine his plan but he said they were pretty unhelpful and weren't really fussed with helping lots.

    I hope it works out differently and you get some help. At the American parks they'll tailor make engagement packages for you. But they are quite as romantically minded at DLRP.

    But whatever you do will be a super special day for you both. So try not to stress about everything having to be to plan and having extra people there and a carriage ride and meal etc sorted.

    All you really need is the two of you. Xx

    Another suggestion would be to go up to the balcony inside the castle and do it there. You get a great view of fantasy land :)

    Here is the menu at Auberge de Cendrillon. If your going to do it there have a word with the CM when you arrive.
