    Do you provide any special services for when some one is going to propose at a park? How can I get a wedding ring past the medal detector with out my partner knowing ?

    Hello Mariano!

    A very warm welcome to you from all of us at planDisney! I see that love is in the air and you're planning on asking that all important question to your partner! Congratulations and it would be my pleasure to help you and be involved in this process.

    There are no formal services for Guests interested in help with their engagements. However, you could always speak to a representative from Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons for some ideas and they even publish a four page document with tips on how to pop the big question! Most Guests simply have a plan in mind when they enter the Parks and, when the time and location seem right, they propose!

    That's not to say that you can't go all out if you want, Mariano! I'm a romantic at heart and I got engaged at Disneyland Park with a lot of help from Cast Members. I was a local at the time, so I also had the benefit of being able to set things up beforehand. If Cast Members know what you are planning, I assure you that they will try to make it as magical and memorable for you as they can! One idea would be to have several little notecards stashed away (don't let your partner see these!!) that simply states "I'm proposing! Shhhh." and surreptitiously pass these out to nearby Cast Members (like the Disney PhotoPass photographer) right before you ask! The more people who can join in on your engagement, the more fun it would be!

    And I wouldn't worry about the metal detector at the security checkpoint. Your bags will be searched separately and will not be required to go through the metal detector. They will ask you to empty your pockets before you walk through and your bags will be placed on the table next to the detector. So you just need to make sure that the Cast Member who searches your bag doesn't give away the secret to your significant other!

    If you need some suggestions on when and where to ask, I might have some ideas:

    • During the finale of any nighttime spectacular.
    • During a ride on the Storybook Land Canal Boats. Better yet, if you time it right, the Cast Members stop the ride vehicle to allow Guests to watch the fireworks (on select nights), allowing you to ask in a more private setting.
    • Create a scavenger hunt throughout the Park, only giving them the ring at the end. I'm a puzzle guy and that's what I did. I had all the clues in my backpack with me.
    • Snow White's Grotto. Very romantic spot and off the beaten path a bit.
    • If you're into spectacle, consider the Fantasmic! stage on Tom Sawyer Island. If they see you, I guarantee that someone on the other side of the River will be recording your moment!

    You've got some months ahead to plan, Mariano, and I wish you the best. If you need any more help, please feel free to contact me or any of my planDisney pals with more questions (my friend and classmate panelist Amanda also got engaged at the Parks). We'll be waiting for the good news!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
