Cynthia and Ricky
How We Met
In November 2013 I hired into Disneyland as a cashier on Main Street in Quick Service Restaurants. Shortly after having worked a few shifts is when I had met Ricky Robinson, (who instantly I thought was tall, dark and handsome, and was the nicest person I had ever met). I was aware that he had a girlfriend at the time but it was well known that it was a very rocky relationship and many felt the person he was with at the time was not the right match for him. Once his relationship had ended and after some time, we had one distinct conversation that I will always remember. It was a conversation that we had where I can truly say it was like “love at first sight”. We just had a simple conversation about our hometowns, (which we found out we had grew up in the same area) and for some reason knowing we had a similar upbringing I suddenly pictured our lives together. After that conversation I actually got embarrassed because I thought to myself, “why am I daydreaming about this guy that I barely even know”? Well, fast forward to less than a year later after that conversation, we would start dating into what has now become the rest of my life!
How They Asked
While we are entering the gates he starts telling me that he really needs to use the restroom so we both proceed to go to the restrooms nearby City Hall on Main Street. When I come out that is when I see one of my best friends and old co-workers from Disney holding roses and a poster of her and I with a note written by Ricky underneath the photo. I am so confused because Ricky is nowhere to be seen. From there I begin to start the scavenger hunt of a lifetime and she begins to escort me to the a stop which I am then met by his cousin his fiance. They then take me to the next location which is where mine and Ricky’s old coworkers have posters of Ricky and I with a love note and clues that lead me to the next place. From there I get escorted to find his parents with a poster and a clue, and lastly I am lead to my family. Overjoyed by the love and people at each stop I soon find out that the scavenger isn’t done until I go on the top deck of the Mark Twain boat which is where I then am greeted by all the family and friends that I just ran into at the stops plus more waiting for me. I see him standing in front of them all and that is where he asks me to marry him. Once I say yes and he puts the ring on my finger, the Mark Twain blows it’s horn and rings it’s ship bell, and at that moment it felt like a real dream coming true!
