Marriage Proposal IdeasWalt Disney World: Ideas? Experience?
From Matt SidesHey all. I'm looking for interesting and unique ideas to ask my girlfriend to marry me, while we're on our trip to Orlando. We're going to be doing all the Disney parks, Universal, and Sea World.... I don't have a preference at which park I'd want to pop the question at.

Just something that isn't overly cheesy, but definitely something public.
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

From Chad HMight be worth having a chat with Guest services, they probably get more than a few requests and might be able to suggest something unique that might require their help...

From Brian EmeryGO back, Don’t do it… Years of misery.. Stay single….Run Away…

Well if she monitors your internet activity – it will not be a surprise anymore.
From Brian EmeryHow about at a Publix Store in Orlando… Ask her in frozen food area and I guarantee it will be special…

Or maybe at a Dennys...
From steve leeThe tram ride, right when Jaws pops out of the water!

(seriously, no one at Universal Studios told Kevin Smith there wasn't a tram tour in Florida?)
From Kelly MuggletonOk, be prepared to barf men.

From a girl's perspective I have always thought it would be amazing to be proposed to on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom with Wishes underway above the castle....preferably with When You Wish Upon a Star playing.
From Mike GallagherThank you for the warning. It was definitely warranted ;)

From Matt SidesThanks for the idea Kelly... I'll definitely keep that in mind. All my friends are guys so they've come up with interesting ideas, but not very romantic.

Like holding the ring above her head on Splash Mountain during the photo, then asking when she sees the picture.... but knowing up I'd probably drop the flipping ring.
Nonetheless, I appreciate the input!
From Kelly MuggletonSplash Mountain idea is VERY cool though! As a clumsy person I can appreciate the worry of dropping the ring.

The picture idea in general is really good!! Hmmmm....
From Anon MouseStrange. Did your girlfriend not pressure you yet?

My feeling is it is best to arrive at decision mutually and not via a unilateral pop the question moment.
Since my warning is unlikely to be heeded, I advise nothing. You really need to come up with your own proposal. Only you know what she likes and how much you're willing to go with it.
From Marie-Eve LandryI take a chance hoping it's not done yet!

Why not a "Marry Me?" sign for the picture in Splash Mountain? (Then she would see it in the picture!)
There is a wishing well at the right of the castle. You can pretend to wish for something... and right after, you confess to her that you wish she says "yes" ?
Well, proposal in front of the castle during Wishes is amazing (as long as there is not 10 000 people around you).
From Randy StellarI proposed in France at Epcot. Quiet, pretty courtyard bench.

From Marie-Eve LandryMike: So true!

From Daniel EtcheberryIf Disneyland were your destination, I would say the ferris wheel at DCA. Since you are going to Orlando, I would do it at the mexican boat ride at Epcot; all the pavilion is kind of romantic. The Wishes idea is a very good one. Good luck!

From Kelly ChristiansenI saw a really sweet proposal at CityWalk in the Rising Star karaoke club. The guy got up and sang her "their" song and then asked her up to the stage and proposed. It was on a busy Saturday night and the crowd went wild!
