    I really want to propose in the animation academy at Disneyland. It's my girlfriends favorite place at Disney but she is terrified of large crowds and I was wondering if it is at all possible to reserve just like a minute or two alone?

    Please let me be the first to welcome you to planDisney, Matthew! We love a Happily Ever After and I feel so honored that you chose to ask us a question about celebrating such an important milestone at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    The Animation Building at Disney California Adventure Park has to be among my personal favorite places across the Disneyland Resort theme parks. From a 360-degree panorama of scenes from cherished Disney films to the swell of emotion from beloved songs that have captured our hearts for many years, I can tell why it is such a special place in your girlfriend’s heart. Talk about a dreamy location for a proposal! My best tip is to walk directly to the Animation Building immediately after the park opens when you'll likely find the lowest crowds of the day. And, I hope you'll find some Disney PhotoPass photographers to help you capture special memories of your most momentous occasion!

    Matthew, I also suggest that you reach out to the wonderful events team at Disney’s Fairytale Weddings & Honeymoons. You can initiate this process by submitting the contact form to get in contact with one of the wonderful Cast Members who know how to help you create the engagement of your dreams at the Disneyland Resort. 

    May I also suggest picking up a couple of complimentary celebration buttons at any of the Guest Relations locations, hotels, or shops of the Disneyland Resort? It’s such a lovely way to announce your happy news to the world and trust me - you’ll get lots of congratulatory comments from Cast Members and Guests alike! It also makes a lovely keepsake of your special moment of joy. I like to take these buttons to Plaza Point where a Cast Member can provide a hand-painted personalization such as your names or engagement date, for a small fee. I bet it will become a treasured reminder of your love for a lifetime!

    If you're looking for some other special locations across Disneyland Resort that are primed for romance, my friend and fellow panelist Amanda suggested a sunset Storybook Land Canal Boats ride. Nothing celebrates love more than floating under the twinkling lights of a topiary canopy while touring the fairytale castles and landscapes featured in the most delightful Disney stories.

    I’m already getting emotional thinking about your Happily Ever After, Matthew! If we can offer any more heartfelt advice for your special day (and beyond) please come back to planDisney and send us your questions.

    Dreams do come true,
