Well good for you! As a matter of fact I just pop the question to my girlfriend of four years at Disneyland on the day you posted this!
If you go to City Hall ( guest relations) and talk to a Cast Member you will be surprise how much they will work with you at no cost to yourself. To get an idea I will relate my story to everyone here.
I was finally able to get my girlfriend to go look around on her own and rushed off to City Hall. I talked to a Cast Member there ( his name was Kevin) and remove the ring box from my pocket. He was so excited and asked me what I wanted to do. " Do you want to do it where everyone can see you or would you like something more private?" I of course asked how much, " Nothing, it’s your moment! We make dreams come true" I of course got to thinking I needed something big and Samantha and me love pirates, and of course POTC and the good Captian! He got on the phone and talked to the Character Director ( his name was Ron) and asked what could we do. Passing the phone to me I talked to Ron, who was excited to hear what I wanted to do and asked me if I wanted to do something with Captian Jack! I of course said I would love to and I would like it kinda of public but no to much. So he came over to City Hall and took the ring from me ( Looking back on it, most would not trust someone they never met with a very expensive ring, but he was great) and we came up with a story to tell Samantha. The Story goes that I lost my wallet on Splash Mountian and I asked Disney Security to locate it for me, and I said I would spare no expense that they needed to get the best person to find it.
We agreed on the place, we decided on the Stairwell next to Club 33 ( just past it, next to the art stations, behind the two shops) where I would lead Samantha under the assumtion that I was meeting with Disney Security in thier office!
I led her there and turned her back to the stair well. There where about 8 people standing around looking at stuff in the shops and a couple sitting on the bench. I told her that I had lost my wallet and they just called me to meet them there with thier person who had tracked it down.
As she looked at me wreid, Captian Jack decended the stairs and called my name, I turned Samantha as he came down and she FREAKED! gitty with the moment she was shocked and I shook the Captians hand and he asked me for payment. I agreed to supply him with a new boat…ship… in exchanged for my lost item.
He handed my the box and I pop the question ( she said yes folks) and we exchange more words. They took pictures for us and I thanked the good Captian and of course Ron who was there. The people around us were in shock and thankfully the staff made sure that they could look but not interfer. It was a great moment which I will not every forget.
In my thanks I offered money, they didn’t want it and I asked what I could do, he mention the Guest Apprication Form would be great and I made sure to make out one for everyone I talked to.
Disney did this at no expense to me and the actor took his time to do it. This is something that I find really amazing and will forever brag about. I had talked to another person in City Hall about it later and they said that many people do it without them but they will attempt to do as much as they can with Characters and Locations if you ask and give them some time.
So, there you have it. Think of something youself or talk to them, they will make you dream come true.
Disney Wedding Proposal Ideas?
If that’s true, then I don’t think he necessarily had to be a CM (I think it’s a good chance he was, though, considering they met at Disneyland).
