    Eric from FL Asked

    I am interested in proposing to my girlfriend in bell's castle. She has always loved the story of Beauty and the Beast. I didn't know what was available and what could be done to make her dreams come true.

    Hi Eric! Let's start off this answer by congratulating you on a great proposal idea! You're going above and beyond to make this moment about her! That's a great start to any proposal!

    At the Walt Disney World Resort, Beast's Castle sits overtop Be Our Guest Restaurant. It is located in Magic Kingdom Park. It is, by far, my favorite Disney Dining experience. This would be a great location for your Beauty and the Beat inspired proposal. Guests can dine in either the Grand Ballroom where Belle and Beast had their memorable dance, the West Wing where the magical rose can be found, or the library where Belle has her collection of books. When making your reservation, I recommend requesting either the Ballroom or the West Wing. If you request the Ballroom, let them know that you would like seating near the windows overlooking the snowfall. A nice setting for the moment. The West Wing might also be nice as it is a little more intimate with dimmed lighting. The magical rose, sitting in this room, might be a special visual.

    Eric, be sure to book your Be Our Guest Restaurant dining reservation 60-days prior to the day of your vacation arrival. This is one of the most popular dining locations in all of the Walt Disney World Resort. Reservations go fast!

    My second recommendation is to contact the photographers at Disney's Capture Your Moment! It would be a nice touch to surprise your girlfriend with a photo session inside Magic Kingdom Park following your engagement. The contact number for Capture Your Moment is (407)939-7758. She will want to look nice for the session, so you can encourage a nice outfit by telling her you're having a nice dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant.

    Eric, I hope this advice gives you a good head start to planning a memorable moment for both you and your girlfriend. I'm really happy that planDisney could be a part of your moment. Be her Disney prince for the rest of your happy life together! Congratulations and best wishes! Come back to planDisney when it's time to plan the honeymoon!
