Proposal Ideas in WDWBy Marvel Diva


On my most recent trip to Walt Disney World, my girlfriend and I got engaged! Between this trip, my time spent helping Wishes Diva’s husband plan his engagement to Wishes Diva, and my time spent as a cast member witnessing proposals – I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about engagements in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Follow along for my best suggestions:

Magic Kingdom:

  • Daytime at the Train station in Main Street 
    • Quiet, spacey, and a classic Main Street view!
    • At night the photos aren’t as good – more folks are waiting for fireworks & camp out – this also makes the train station deck even more hot.
    • More likely to have photos with less strangers in it because you’re elevated above the street!
  • Bridges/walkways in Frontierland between Big Thunder Mountain and Liberty Square – along Tom Sawyer Island
    • Castle as a backdrop in the distance
    • Quieter, depending on the time of day
  • Liberty Belle
    • Great views and pretty backgrounds for photos!
  • Exit queue of the Haunted Mansion
    • Only for the true fans – where else can you say “‘til death do us part” in your proposal that’s not in an actual cemetary?
  • Base of Rapunzel’s tower
  • Walkway in New Fantasyland
    • Beast’s castle in the distance
    • More pretty backgrounds!

Honorary Mention – Carousel of Progress. Okay…I’m biased towards dad jokes – “Be my great big beautiful tomorrow!”

  • In front of Spaceship Earth
    • You should know by now, I’m a sucker for a pretty background if you want photos!
  • Courtyard in the UK
    • Typically quiet
    • Pretty flowers
  • Gardens in Canada
    • See UK reasons 🙂
  • Bridge to France
    • I love a good “by-the-water” proposal

Spaceship Earth 

Hollywood Studios

  • Courtyard in front of Great Movie Ride
    • Biased this time as a former GMR cast member – find a handprint from someone who means something special to you both – or by Mickey & Minnie’s!
  • In front of the Millenium Falcon
    • Cons – it’ll be busy
    • Pros – it’s the MILLENIUM FALCON
  • During Fantasmic
    • This show is all about imagination – be cheesy and make your imagined proposal a reality!
  • Sunset Boulevard
    • With a ~spooky~ Tower of Terror backdrop

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios

Animal Kingdom

  • In front of the Tree of Life
  • Festival of the Lion King
    • Spoiler alert: they sing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” and it’s very romantic.

***Disclaimer – I would not recommend proposing *on* a ride – unless it’s very slow and you know where any twists or turns are. What if you come to a stop and the ring goes flying?? I wouldn’t risk it ruining your moment!

How was I proposed to? I thought you’d never ask! This leads me to my last suggestion – if you’re the introverted type, I’d highly recommend seeking out spots around your resort! Morgan proposed to me by the lagoon between Pop Century and Art of Animation. It was very quiet and felt very private! A great way to keep the magic of Disney in your proposal while taking a moment to yourselves as a couple.

I’d love to hear your Disney proposal stories in the comments below!
