Disneyland Marriage Proposals
“Except for me, there are not a lot of things in the world that Jane loves more than Disneyland. For as long as I have known her, she has always wanted a proposal at her favorite place in the universe. So of course, when the time came, I planned us a trip there. We were walking around, happy as can be, and when I noticed the photographer I hired off in the distance, I took Jane’s face, pulled her close to me, and began my proposal. I was squeezing her hand so tight… and the wrong hand at that. She just smiled at me with her big glowing eyes, as I told her all the things I loved about her. At the end, I asked if she would be my wife…!”
Rob and Bryiana went to see Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular. During the show Rob told Bryiana he was going to the bathroom, but when he came back she was shocked to see he was on stage, riding an elephant! Bryiana was called up on stage and Rob used his third genie wish on a gift that could show that his love was forever. Rob got down on one knee and said, “Bryiana Noelle Flores will you marry me?” She, of course, said yes.
“Patrick turned to me and said, “Let’s go take a picture in front of the castle before we get on the rides and your hair gets messy.” Hearing the most perfect words ever, I agreed and we headed towards the castle. When it was our turn, the photographer asked us to do a few different poses. We did some typical picture poses, and then Patrick turned to me and said “I have a pose I want to try!”. He then said, “I don’t know what the girl is supposed to do, but the guy does something like this….” At that moment, he got on one knee and I felt a rush of emotions fill up inside me. Patrick pulled out the most stunning ring I had ever seen and spoke the words ever girl wants to hear from their Prince Charming….”
When we got to the middle of the parks, he began getting extremely serious! He suddenly stopped, looked at me, and said, “Do you trust me?” I was super confused, but assured him that I did. “Can I have your hand?” Cleverly I said, “Which one?” He gave me this crazy cheesy smile and at that moment I had a feeling something incredible was about to happen! And well, from then on, I have nooooo idea what he said. I know. I know. One of the most important days of my life, and it’s all a fascinating blur! All I remember is him kneeling on one knee, and OUR ENTIRE FAMILY running towards me holding up signs that said, “BRIT MARRY ME?”
“We sat down and with our caricature artist, Kim, and she began illustrating our portrait together. Several people started circling around us and I was beginning to get nervous! I didn’t want anyone to ruin my plan. Luckily Kim put out a large sign that we were unable to see, that read “Shhh! Proposal in Progress”. Finally, Kim stood up and turned the photo around for Courtney and I to see. It was a large illustration of me kneeling on one knee in front of Courtney with a large ring in my hand, and a quotation bubble that read, “Will you marry me?””
“Kenny, my sister and I were supposed to go to Disneyland, but Kenny backed out of the excursion at the last minute to “help his dad with the family business.” My sister and I went ahead to the theme park as planned. As my sister directed me around Sleeping Beauty’s castle, I was greeted by an assortment of friends and family, three of whom who held up chalkboard signs reading: “Will” “You” “Marry”…and then I came to Kenny, representing himself for the “Me.””
“My heart was pounding and my eyes were swelling up with tears as I walked towards him. He hugged me tightly and told me how much he loved me and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Then, he got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes! He had made my dreams come true! I felt like a princess, incredibly loved, and I couldn’t have dreamt up anything more special and magical! I am forever his princess, and he is my prince.”
“He slipped the ring on my finger, and I burst into tears. I remember I kept hugging him, then looking down at my hand, then hugging him more. I was so in shock that I almost forgot to say YES! I just couldn’t believe it! The best part was that my whole family was there to witness it all as they cheered us on and cried along with me.”
“I wanted nothing more than to be by his side day and night. I cried the instant he got on his knee because my dream was finally becoming a reality.He is not only my love, but my best friend. These eight years I have shared with Jonathan have been truly magical. He is an amazing person, and I am blessed to have him by my side. As each day passes by I fall more deeply in love with him. I can not wait to call him my Husband.”
“In the next room was Ariel. I was SO excited so naturally I wanted to run up to her, tell her she’s my favorite, and so on. I heard Tommy tell me to wait for a minute while he was trying to find something in his backpack. Out he pulls a pair of white Mickey Ears adorned with a tiara and veil! Ariel was just wishing me a Happy Birthday when she sees my new hat and says “Just married, too?” to which I replied with a confused “No?!” Tommy jumped in next to her and said “Not yet, so here we go!” He got on one knee and proposed to me in front of Ariel, at the most magical place on earth. It was an unforgettable moment and I am beyond blessed to have such a thoughtful man in my life!!”
