    I want to propose to my girlfriend at Disney Hollywood Studios on September 9 2021, do you have any accomadations for that? Please let me know your thoughts, thanks.

    Hi JJ!

    I am so excited for you! I just love a good proposal and Walt Disney World is the perfect place to pop that important question!  While Disney doesn’t offer any specific package or pre-planned proposal offerings, I do have a few ideas and suggestions for you.

    My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary, and if I could do one thing different with our proposal, I would want photographs. Back then, we didn’t have cameras on our cell phones, and we have no photos from that special moment. So I am proposing to you, JJ, that you get some photos of this special day!

    You mentioned that Disney’s Hollywood Studios is where you plan to propose. You’ll find PhotoPass Photographers throughout the theme parks, and you can even locate them using the map feature of the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Purchase Memory Maker and you'll receive unlimited digital downloads of all the PhotoPass Photos taken during your visit! Find a PhotoPass Photographer in a location you like and head on over. Maybe take a quick “restroom break,” or find a way to escape just prior so you can run over and tell the photographer you are coming and what you plan to do. Disney PhotoPass Photographers are usually ready for anything! Take a few photos together. Then maybe ask if you can take a photo of your girlfriend facing away from you. Now is your moment to signal the photographer and get that ring box out!

    After she says, “YES!” head to Guest Services and pick up “Just Engaged” Celebration Buttons so everyone can give you their good wishes! Then, the two of you should have a celebratory dinner. Make an Advance Dining Reservation and toast to many years of happiness. I recommend the Hollywood Brown Derby for a special meal, or hop the Disney Skyliner to Disney's Riviera Resort for dinner at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera.

    If you aren’t tied to the idea of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I do have one other idea. Capture Your Moment is a new offering where you get a private PhotoPass session for 20 minutes in either Magic Kingdom or Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You could tell your girlfriend you are just getting special photos, but take advantage of that private photography session to ask the big question! I would recommend stopping by the check-in podium on your own earlier in the day and let them know the plan, and your PhotoPass Photographer will be ready to Capture Your Moment!

    I hope one of these ideas inspires you, JJ. Sending you pixie dust for the perfect proposal!
