    I’m after some advice for a friend of mine; he and his girlfriend are planning a trip to WDW sometime next year, probably October time. I’ve told him to join and ask some questions, but you know what some people are like :lol:

    Anyway, he has decided he wants to propose to her at Disney :D They both love Disney, so he thinks this would be the ideal place. He’s not sure if a park or resort would be best, but he has to be a little careful because she doesn’t like being in the spotlight, so asking her in a busy restaurant is definitely out, the last thing he wants to do is embarrass her – sensible man :yes: especially if he wants a "yes" :wink:

    So ladies, if you were lucky enough to be proposed to at WDW where would you like it to be, any suggestions at all.

    If our lovely men out there have any ideas, that would be great to, to see it from a male perspective :D

    I thought the Wishing Well at Cinderella Castle would be nice, maybe whilst watching wishes, but I’m not sure you can get to the Wishing Well then :unsure:

    What could he do to make it extra romantic, I know he wants it to be really special.

    I thought it would be better to propose at the start of the holiday rather than towards the end, they can wear the Just Engaged badges and if they get the photopass they will have the “Just Engaged” borders to put on their photos. It would make a wonderful keepsake.

    Any help at all would be really useful :hug2:

    What an amazing fella! I loved the way my husband proposed to me, but if there was any other way he could have done it, I would have wanted it to be at Disney. (At least we had our honeymoon there. :))

    I have a few thoughts. Firstly, if there is a country she has always wanted to visit, (say, Italy), Epcot would be a beautiful place to pop the question. But it would really be best if she had some kind of connection to the "country" he did it in.

    If she's into characters (like me), he could talk to a castmember and maybe have it set up for her favorite character (like Mickey or someone) get down on one knee and act like they're proposing to her, and while she's laughing, he could tap her on the shoulder and then do it for real! I think that would be precious. But I don't know exactly how crowd shy she is.

    Perhaps my favorite idea, if he wants it to be magical but also rather intimate, is if he picked a good spot to watch the fireworks and did it during Wishes. The first time I watched Wishes on my Disney day trip with my now-husband, I was so entranced, it moved me to tears, being surrounded by all the childhood magic that is Disney with the person I loved so much. If they're both as big of Disney fans as we are, I can just imagine her being swept up in everything, and then the proposal pushing it over the edge.

    Let us know what he decides!! I love proposals!!

    Ok, I`m not a lady, but I reckon that if the couple were to take a stroll over to the Wedding Pavillion then that would be the perfect location for him to "do the deed"! :yes:

    Adjacent to the church there is a rose covered arch where newleyweds have their photo taken with Cinderella`s Castle framed in the background by the arch.
    Furthermore, if there isn`t a wedding taking place at the time, they would have the place to themselves.
    [Must remember what I`ve said the next time that I get married! :lol:]

    Terry it's good to have a man's perspective, you've set the bar very high so now I'm expecting some ideas from all of our male members :D

    These are all brilliant suggestions, makes me wish Chris would propose to me at WDW :lol:

    Anymore ideas, I'd like to give him lots of suggestions.

    Asking from a man's perspective, would you be embarrassed to propose in a very public location :D

    I think I might also suggest having a photo shoot at their favourite resort with Randy Chapman and then he can propose to her, they will have the moment captured on film :D
