    My son will be proposing at the Magic Kingdom. Any ideas how to make the occasion special? Where to go, or eat etc.

    Hi Karen,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! What a romantic proposal it sounds like your son has planned. I am so tickled that you are investigating possibilities!

    On one of our visits, we were standing in line waiting for a PhotoPass photographer in front of Cinderella Castle and we witnessed a proposal! When those of us standing in line realized what was happening and she said yes, we all clapped and cheered! I definitely suggest that your son purchase Memory Maker. With it, he will get access to all of the digital photos they take with PhotoPass photographers. 

    A proposal during or immediately after the Happily Ever After fireworks would be amazing. Since it can get crowded near Cinderella Castle during the fireworks, your son might want to make a dining reservation for California Grill. Make the reservation for about 30 minutes prior to the fireworks time. Arrive to the check-in desk at least 20 minutes early and request a window table. On our last visit, we had a fabulous view of the fireworks from our table and were able to hear the storytelling and music as well.

    Karen, also have your son take a look at Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons to get ideas for magical engagements. Although my husband and I were not engaged at the Walt Disney World Resort, we did have a simply perfect honeymoon there. We stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. The resort was just gorgeous and we took many a late night walk around the grounds. 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
