  • [Question] Proposal. Ideas, Help!!!

    Hi all.

    I plan to travel to the U.S. in April '09 to propose to my beautiful girlfriend at Disneyland. We are both Australian and she will already be in L.A. for work with her family. She has no idea I will be coming to America so the last thing she will expect on a family trip to Disneyland is ME..... and a DIAMOND!!!

    The perfect scenario would be for her to be lured to a planned locating by her family (who know I'm coming) and surprise her with not only my presence but the proposal at the same time with possibly some character interaction.

    The problem is, I have no knowledge of the park and don't know how to pre-plan anything with the park staff/characters from here in Australia.

    I have read about some places in the park that other people have proposed at, ie: The Bridge in front of The Castle & The Wishing Well. Ideally it would be somewhere quiet and private with a view of the Castle.

    I have thought that if her family could get her to the Wishing Well, Cinderella could hand her a glass slipper with a note in it and say "This does not fit me, it must be yours!" The note would contain an Australian dollar coin and read "Throw the coin in the well, close your eyes and think of someone you love." As she closes her eyes, I'd approach her, take her hand, drop to one knee and pop the question!!!

    What do you think?
    Is the Wishing Well a good spot?
    What are my chances of getting help from a "character"?
    Are there any other great locations?

    Any help would be VERY gladly received.

    Thanks for reading. :blush:

      I can answer this one, nope you can't. Not yet at least.


      I'm not sure if characters could help you, I'm not the most experienced in that. But the idea sounds really cute. Good luck!

        If you are looking to have character interaction, the only way you'll be able to do that is through Disney. You can contact the Disney Wedding people for more info on that.

        The wishing well is a nice quiet spot for the most part and is in view of the castle, if a castle view is a requirement then that'd be where I would go with as in front of the castle is overly crowded and won't give you the seclusion you're looking for. I think you have a great plan for the proposal as well just be sure to coordinate with her family.

        As for going into the castle, currently no, but you mention April of '09 and I believe that the Sleeping Beauty Walk-thru will be reopened by then, but I could be wrong.

        As for anywhere else, there are many places to propose. I proposed to my wife in the Court of Angels in New Orleans Square.

          If I could choose where my proposal (whenever that may be) would be, thats where I would choose. :blush: Good choice lol.

            What do you mean? Where will you be able to access?

              The Sleeping Beauty Walkthrough entrance is on the Fantasyland side of the castle. You enter on one side and walk through several dioramas and them come back down the other side. I don't suggest proposing in there though because if I remember there isn't a whole lot of space.

              I love your idea with getting Cinderella invovled with the glass slipper. I'm sure she will be overwhelmed with excitement no matter how you propose! Good luck!

                To get a character involved, can you pre-plan it or do you just try to grab one just before the moment?

                  You better pre-plan that one. Telling a character just to give someone a ring might not fly and this is something important. Good Luck!

                      ^Where did you hear that? As far as I know, the Castle is currently closed, but will reopen later this year, and I don't think that it's seasonal...

                        Great ideas! I loved the wishing well one. Good luck, although I'm sure you won't need it

                          You can often get a regular CM to help "make some Magic happen" on short notice, they might have to check with their supervisor first but it is done.

                          But if you want a Character involved (like Cinderella) you really need to work it out ahead of time. And they are rather protective of their characters, they may have restrictions and conditions you need to follow.

                          Example, you can arrange for a wedding at the DL Hotel and come into Disneyland to take wedding pictures in your finery - but they enforce the contract, they send a wedding coordinator in with you and the photographer, you get to the locations, get only the photos you are allowed to take, and they get you out.

                          They don't care if you have regular tickets or Annual Passes, go change into regular street clothes and come back later. But the Bride and Groom Hats (Mickey ears on a top hat, Minnie ears with a veil) are allowed, and people will figure it out soon enough.

                            Is that some kind of Australian euphemism? If so, I think DL management frowns on that sort of behavior in the parks.
