Disney Proposal Ideas Are a Dream Come True

I’m a Florida girl at heart. Ask my coral Hunter boots & Lilly Pulitzer puffer vest. On dreary, Chicago winter commutes, I stand out like a gator in your swimming pool. You can take the girl out of the Sunshine State, and significantly lower her sunscreen expenditure, but you just can’t take the Sunshine State out of the girl. Thusly, Disney proposals have always and will always make me cry. No exceptions. These are my favorite Disney proposal ideas.

During Wishes Fireworks

Disney was great. Love the Christmas lights. #fireworks #Disney #magickingdom #disneywishes #disneyworld

In front of the castle, right as the best fireworks display you’ll ever see is going off. mandatory: Ask her during “When dreams come true.”

Fireworks with a Twist

Want the best view of the pyrotechnics? You’ll actually have to head out of Magic Kingdom. The most elegant place to watch is at The Contemporary’s California Grill. The food is amazing (especially the white cheddar mac n cheese, for those of you with cultured palettes.) The restaurant staff, like the rest of the entire cast at Disney, will be more than happy to help you execute the perfect proposal before, during, or after your meal.

Scavenger Hunt

Send your beloved on a trip around the World – Disney World. This doesn’t have to revolve around an Epcot visit, you can compile clues for her to follow all around whatever park you love most. They should culminate, of course, in a very important question.

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes…

In front of the castle at Magic Kingdom there is a pre-court rose garden. There you’ll find Snow White’s Wishing Well. Toss some coins and ask her to make your wish come true.

“She Said Yes!”

I said “yes”! ? @theultimatedisneycrew #engagement #ears #disney #magickingdom

Beat her to the punch – pre-purchase one of Disney’s embroidered Mickey Ears hats or Pins that celebrate major life moments. Hand it to her, and before she can put two and two together hit the floor on your left knee.

Disney is famous for a few specialty foods. Think Pineapple Dole Whips, fudge from the Main Street Confectionery, and those famous Mickey Ice Cream Pops. If she has a favorite craving, make sure you’re ready to fulfill it, along with some “ice.” Just probably don’t use this idea if her favorite food at Disney is the giant turkey leg.

Caricature Proposal

Not gonna lie, this is probably one of my favorites of all time. I always wanted a caricature, but my parents (and, uh, my husband) always knew I couldn’t bear to sit still for one when we could be riding Splash Mountain ad nauseum. But this is SO sweet, and also creates an instant souvenir from the big moment.

All of the Above

Of course, you could just do what this guy did and combine practically every Disney proposal idea. Ever. The end result is pretty much perfect.
