The “Happiest Place on Earth” is truly the perfect place to start your happily ever after. There are plenty of attractions, dining experiences, and picturesque backdrops to help set the mood and make the moment memorable. Plus, Disney is all about making magic, so cast members will go above and beyond to try and make the day extra special for you. If you’re planning to pop the question at Disneyland® Resort, keep reading. We’ve put together a few of our best locations, tips, and ideas to help serve as inspiration for your Disneyland® Resort proposal.
We’re starting our list of tips with this one because it’s so important. You’ll have a much smoother and more romantic Disney proposal if you’ve done your research and planned ahead. That includes making reservations, contacting Disney cast members as needed, getting friends and family involved, etc. Feel free to contact us as well. Our Disney experts would be more than happy to help you pull off a magical Disneyland® Resort proposal. The more you can get done ahead of time, the less likely it is that your future spouse will get suspicious about you sneaking off or having side conversations once you’re actually at the parks.
Wish for a long and happy marriage at the Wishing Well.
This is one of the most popular (and romantic) places to pop the question at Disneyland® Resort. It’s a nice, tranquil spot and you’ll hear notable songs from Snow White in the background.
Start your Happily Ever After in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.
The castle makes for a great photo backdrop and it’s an iconic spot in the park. There’s no better spot to promise true love.
Take advantage of PhotoPass cast members around the parks.
You can have a PhotoPass cast member capture your engagement at various locations around the park. Give them a heads up and have a memorable photo that you and your significant other will cherish for years down the road. Your special someone will never expect it.
Enlist the help of your favorite characters.
There’s nothing quite like meeting your favorite Disney characters. Any of the Disney princesses (or even Mickey himself) are the perfect witnesses to your iconic moment. They may even help you pop the question!
Surprise him or her with a special engagement sketch.
You can partner with Disney’s amazing sketch artists to create a magical, one-of-a-kind keepsake to mark your engagement. Per Disney, you should contact the artist in advance to discuss ideas and availability at (714) 991-1527.
Pop the question during World of Color.
World of Color is a magical nighttime array of water, color, and your favorite Disney and Pixar stories in Paradise Gardens Park at Disney’s California Adventure® Park. It is the perfect breathtaking backdrop to propose to the person who takes your breath away. Make it even more memorable by adding a dining experience with special viewing at Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria. For reservations, call (714) 781-DINE.
Make the moment “Fantasmic.”
Fantasmic — located in Frontierland at Disneyland® Park— is another nighttime spectacular that’s sure to make your proposal to that special someone extra romantic. Get down on one knee and ask amid the dazzling special effects and light display. You can reserve a preferred viewing area or add a dining package by calling (714) 781-DINE.
Have an explosive proposal under the fireworks.
The Disneyland® Resort fireworks are truly magical and serve as the perfect magical backdrop for a proposal. (Keep in mind, if you want something a little more intimate and away from the crowds, you can see the beautiful fireworks display perfectly from the comfort of our hotel!)
Propose on his or her favorite attraction.
From Tower of Terror to the Pixar Pal-A-Round, there are numerous iconic attractions around the parks. If your special someone has a favorite, it might make for the perfect proposal idea (and some funny, Instagram-worthy reaction photos).
Go on a VIP Tour.
A Disney tour guide can help you craft a custom engagement experience and show you and your future spouse all of the special spots you want to see around the parks. Per Disney, call (714) 300-7710 to learn more.
