Ok so me and my girlfriend have a trip planed for valentines day. She doesn't know but I plan on proposing to her. What can I do to make the day even more special?

Don't drop the ring in the castle moat. - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 6:42PM
My fiancΓ© originally planned to ask me at snow whites wishing well and was worried I would accidentally toss the ring in so he called Disney and asked if this happens could they help! And they told him yes there was a grate that would catchy it! πŸ˜„ - CourtyAstroBlisters  784.0 #236 3:52PM
Reach out to my boyfriend and tell him to man up so we can celebrate double proposals!!!!!!!! ;) and make sure u have hidden photographers capturing whole thing - BooEve123  800.9 #232 6:42PM
Ditto! Make it a triple! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  341.1 #701 7:15PM
Maybe go to one of the special V-Day meet and greets and propose in front of a Disney couple? Ask her to be your princess! - JustCantWait  1141.5 #156 7:07PM
Okay this is too freaking cute. Love this! - KylaShea  632.7 #319 7:18PM
I agree! Do this! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 4:13PM
My family and I saw someone having their characture done with he and his girlfriend and he had the artist draw it up as if he was proposing to her. She was so surprised when the artist showed her the pic and the boyfriend got on one knee - bookem  261.2 #1243 7:08PM
Love this too! Goodness, people are so clever - KylaShea  632.7 #319 7:18PM
Hopefully no one passes by and says anything to give it away, we were at one and a girl almost gave it away - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 7:26PM
My sisters co-worker did something similar except hers was to tell her husband they were expecting their 1st child! 😊 - ceeceecue  20.6 #7231 11:09PM
I saw someone do this when I was there in December. While it was going on the artist drew on her pad, shhh proposal in progress. The whole thing was cute. - Bibba  461.4 #471 11:32PM
I got married on Valentine's Day! Here's what I would do: I would have a friend go ahead of us and take a dozen red roses with them. (the friend would be there without your girlfriend knowing) I would have him go and give a single red rose to a CM at different locations. Then text you and tell you where to go next. Go there and when you walk up the CM will hand her the rose. Your final stop should be a location you want to propose and I'd see if a character would hold the ring for you and them hand it to her after you popped the question. - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 9:42PM
This is amazing! - Deltachiq  1228.0 #139 9:46PM
Oh my goodness...THIS!!! So cute and special. - OneDayAlice  497.4 #430 9:47PM
DUDE you are like Will Smith in that one movie - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 11:01PM
this IS just like men in black. - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 11:04PM
The only thing he forgot to mention was for him to go 90 and she goes 10 - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 11:12PM
Wow! - Bibba  461.4 #471 11:33PM
@ JRDrummer - I am that sappy hopeless romantic kinda guy - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 4:18PM
Find a PhotoPass CM and whisper to them that there is about to be a special or magical moment in front of the castle and they will sneakingly do the photos. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 7:21PM
I once helped a guy arrange a proposal on Splash Mountain. He came a month in advanced to let us know what he wanted. The story went as follows: he brought his girlfriend to the park one day and "happened" to run into some of his friends right next to Splash. They had enough FPs for all of them to ride together. The plan was to sit the couple in the front two seats with his friends in the back holding up signs that they pre-made with the proposal on it. After the went down the big drop, the CMs at the photo store purposely blocked the photo so his girlfriend wouldn't see the message. They exited the attraction and the guy went to buy the picture without his girlfriend seeing it. After the CM unblocked the picture, he bought it and gave it to her right outside the store and proposed right there. Now that was the plan he told us, but I'm not sure if it actually happened. - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 8:03PM
That is an awesome proposal story! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 8:08PM
You should "Armstrong" the ending to that story. "So he handed the photo to her and she screamed, then tears running down her face she said yes and I swear there must have been 80 chearing. I will never forget it." - Tom  11116.2 #6 8:20PM
You could get her really drunk at the cove bar and take her on Tower of Terror 5 times in a row and see if she pukes - Dave  13493.0 #2 8:25PM
You sir are a true romantic! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 8:27PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 8:29PM
You have no idea HAHAHAHA - Dave   13493.0 #2 9:04PM
Tell your girlfriend that you want to spend the day making goofy spoof pictures. Pose like the Indian. Get shots making pirate faces in the POTC que in front of the different captains. Maybe even hold hands in front of the partners statue. Make the last one of the day in the castle tunnel. Obviously you'll have to ask a cm to take the picture for you. There's a picture of Prince Phillip kissing Aurora with a bench beneath it. Have your girlfriend lay down on the bench, kiss her, take the picture, propose, take another picture, kiss her again, and of course take more pictures! - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 9:54PM
Sounds like a good plan. (: - SafariSkewerJessica  1533.1 #111 11:00PM
Now that's a great idea! - GarnerPhotography  324.9 #776 6:15AM
Speak clearly and don't cry - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 6:42PM
But seriously, tell a photographer Cast Member before hand what you are doing (sneakily of course) and then you can have great photos to relive your special moment. - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 6:43PM
******πŸ‘ - MadameLeota  4203.1 #35 7:21PM
If you cry, I might laugh.... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ - ZeeAlice  621.7 #328 8:31PM
I might cry if MadameLeota makes everything awkward... πŸ˜‚ - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 8:40PM
******I promise not to, wait, let me think about that,... Just kidding! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ - MadameLeota  4203.1 #35 9:49PM
Try talking to someone that works for Disney, they are big on helping people out for an engagement. They are very professional and will help you in any way they can. Good luck and maybe watch YouTube videos of proposals, they might spark the next great idea. - TDunc55  38.7 #5286 6:46PM
First, congrats! Second, Definitely find somebody nearby to take your photo... If you're planning to propose somewhere that doesn't have a disney photographer, tell somebody that seems nice to please take photos of you guys for the next few minutes. If a photog is around, they'll definitely help. - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:54PM
If you search proposals there are other posts with some ideas that will help. YouTube also has some great videos that would be helpful. - dimplesdanie  1236.9 #138 6:57PM
Definitely try YouTube and Google. Ive also seen really great ones on both. - OneDayAlice  497.4 #430 8:11PM
I have heard that they have been known to play her faviorite Disney song while your doing it. Obviously you would have to call ahead and make a set time and place. - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  341.1 #701 7:20PM
When I was at DLR last a man proposed at the caricature stand and had the lady draw him proposing and then presented it to her! It was the sweetest thing. But I love dlmickeymouseCM's suggestion! - AnnaJoy  181.6 #2234 7:37PM
That happened on MW last year - Villescas8  606.9 #336 7:51PM
All these ideas are so cute. And Im sitting here alone eating pie. #foreveralone - OneDayAlice  497.4 #430 7:58PM
I don't know if it is the same guy that you are talking about but I have seen a Splash Mountain proposal picture on Google images. - Witchie77  374.5 #606 8:16PM
Oops that was in reply to BaseballMickey_CM's post - Witchie77  374.5 #606 8:17PM
You just wait... πŸ˜‰ @OneDayAlice - otbtyler  37.3 #5367 8:24PM
I love these ideas and the caricature is darling and fun to frame forever! If you want more romantic, I just thought that maybe you could get a photo pass photographer to be at Snow White's wishing well. You could take turn making wishes, she could go first, then your "wish" could be that she become your wife! Beautiful spot for picture backgrounds, a little private, and fun to go back there every trip and make more "wishes". Whatever you do-post pictures! Good luck!😘 - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #81 8:19PM
This!! - belle0785  78.4 #3970 10:58PM
Just read it is going to be extra romantic lighting/flowers that week! - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #81 11:02PM
Love this idea, but I am a little biased as this is where my husband proposed to me. :-) - Bibba  461.4 #471 11:35PM
i just wanted to say congrats on taking this step! i wish the best for your proposal and no mater what you do, it will be in Disneyland, and she will love it! my fiance proposed to me last may in Disneyland and it was the most magical day of my life! good luck and please post pics and keep us updated!! :) - CuriousAsAlice7  165.2 #2493 8:19PM
Congratulations! I'm sure it will be wonderful no matter what you do! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 8:21PM
Thanks for the great ideas. I was planning doing it in front of the castle and she will just think its for a picture, secretly tell the cm taking our pic and drop to a knee when they say. Would be great to have "is this love" playing. Night or day time?? - Eric831  34.7 #5562 8:28PM
Night time, the castle is beautiful. And it makes for some great pictures. But Daytime is also nice. - jamielynn  163.3 #2519 8:42PM
Day! Pictures turn out better. - belle0785  78.4 #3970 10:59PM
Maybe let the CMs at storybookland canals before and/or after the proposal for a special ride through storybook land. I know they sometimes do something special for just engaged couples. - ZeeAlice  621.7 #328 8:42PM
Dose any one know how late photographer cm stay out especially in front of the castle? - Eric831  34.7 #5562 8:47PM
I know they are still out after fireworks. Not sure how long after though. I think it depends on the area you are in. If you talk to guest services they may be able to help out and make sure there is one on the spot and ready just for you. - OneDayAlice  497.4 #430 9:01PM
I just gave my wife of 5 years an anniversary band this past Saturday in front of the castle. But did not have any pictures, just me, her and the castle :) - Kontorted  183.9 #2201 8:54PM
Go look at SpaceRaynger's pic of the court of angels!!!!! It's gorgeous there at night! Maybe you could do the caricature, then swoop her into the Court of Angels and get down on one knee and propose there!!!!😍 - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #81 9:06PM
Ooooo yeah! Court of Angels would be lovely! - JustCantWait  1141.5 #156 9:47PM
Aww this! It is not expected! - belle0785  78.4 #3970 11:00PM
Congratulations! My cousin was proposed to by having her fiancΓ© wear a shirt saying "will you marry me" that he had hidden under his jacket and at the picture on space mountain he unzipped the jacket. It was super cute! I know of another couple who got engaged by having MWers hold signs saying "will you marry me" as the train pulled up and they were taking pictures in front of the flowers/main street station. It was also very cute! Whatever you end up doing you absolutely have to have someone taking pictures and maybe even a video. Every girl wants that moment documented. It will be lovely whatever you do! But don't hesitate to ask MWers to help of you need it. We'll be there! - x2ndstar2therightx  217.3 #1771 7:19AM
I could use a bunch of mouse waiters!! I want you guys to walk through the castle with rose's 1by 1 when we are getting our picture taken in front, last rose ill propose. I could use around 12 people. Please let me know if anyone wants to help out! - Eric831  34.7 #5562 12:59PM
What is the date for this!? & around what time? - GrimGrinningAmanda  666.9 #302 2:47PM
It's happening the 14th some time in the afternoon or early evening. - Eric831  34.7 #5562 3:00PM
Aww I would totally do this if I was there! - Poisen_Ivy  315.2 #824 3:34PM
The best way to do it is by not doing it. Lol j/k and good luck! - Firefighter_Donald  66.6 #4251 2:54PM
do it in Cars Land lol - roaddog66_USAF  303.8 #886 4:20PM
Wishing you the very best and a happy marriage! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 4:27PM
