    Hello there, I was looking to propose in magic kingdom in front of Cinderella castle. My girlfriend is a massive Disney fanatic and I’m just wondering if there are any tips or helpful hints to maybe make this extra special? Thanks in advance.

    Hey there Domenic, I'm glad to welcome you to planDisney!

    As someone who had a surprise proposal here at Walt Disney World Resort, I can tell you it's definitely one of those key moments that become a core memory for any Disney fan. You probably won't be surprised to hear that proposing in front of Cinderella Castle happens quite frequently so I can understand why you'd want to make sure it's extra special! I put a lot of research into putting together the perfect Disney engagement, and I'm happy to share some Princely pointers to help you pop the question:

    • If however you want to do it earlier and still have a fairly clear space in front of Cinderella Castle, there's usually a sweet spot immediately following shows like Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire as crowds disperse during the day or during Let the Magic Begin that takes place right before Magic Kingdom park opens. This way you can hop on all the rides and attractions during the day without worrying about the ring!
    • One of the offerings that's become popular for proposals is a Capture Your Moment - Magic Kingdom Park session which is a great way to ensure that you have your very own Disney PhotoPass photographer ready who may even have some special props on hand to add to the shot! These sessions last for about 20 minutes and when we did it, I was able to speak with them beforehand about locations where we really wanted to take photos - which could be a great opportunity to fill them in on your intention to propose during the session.
    These are just a few helpful hints for now, but please come back to ask me directly for any other tips or tricks to help you prepare and even if you're looking ahead to one day having a Disney Fairy Tale Wedding like we did!

    Here's to reaching out and finding your Happily Ever After!
