Default Proposing today at WDW--She Said Yes

My son and his DGF, hopefully soon to be DF, have just checked into SSR. He will be proposing tonight around dusk at the wishing well by Cinderellas castle. We have a friend lined up to take photos and I know this day just won't go by fast enough to suit my son. I think she is going to just totally surprised and shocked to pieces.

He made it thru security o.k. with the ring undetected by her, and I just hope that the rest of the day goes by as he has planned and that she says yes.

I tell you what, sure is going to make for an awkward rest of the trip if she doesn't say yes.

I would love it if they could have a Disney wedding, but I don't think that Disney's prices fit the budget. I am not ruling anything out though, and I am sure there will be lots of conversations for them this evening once the shock wears off.

Geez - wish I had someone lined up to take the picture for me !

I planned a surprise trip for me and my at-the-time girfriend. She had just got back from visiting her folks in AZ the night before, then I woke her up at 4am the next morning and told her we have to get back to the airport since our flight leaves in a few hours.

Dazed and confused (and probably a bit upset about being woke up), she seemed to pop up when I said the destination was WDW. I had bought her some new clothes and had a separate bag all packed for her - all she needed to do was move a couple of things out of one suitcase and into another !!

Checked into BC, and walked over to Epcot. Didn't have anyone lined up to take the photo, so had to wait until she went into a shop and I could find a kind bystander to take the photo.

Finally, after going thru most of WS (and drinks at each country), she needed to make a pit-stop around Mexico and it was my chance. Walked up to a nice looking (and unsuspecting) couple and asked if they'd take picture of me proposing - although shocked they agreed.

Caught her completely off-guard with the proposal as she was still in shock of the surprise trip (only being on a few hours sleep and also having a few glasses of wine also probably contributed to her not being alert enough to realize what she was agreeing to..........).

I can honestly say that walking around with that ring in my pocket and waiting for the right moment was one of the hardest things I ever did - the waiting was even rougher than the wait for ROFR Although keeping the trip a surprise for almost 5 months wasn't easy either. Pretty much all of my family and all of our friends new what was gonna happen, and amazingly no one slipped up.

Needless to say, last week we celebrated 7 great years together and have 2 kids that are "the world" to us.

We're now very happy new SSR owners, and looking forward to many family vacations at the world together.

Good luck to your son, I'm betting on him getting a resounding "YES."

Chris

Wow...What a great day for your son! I hope she doesn't read the boards too! That would be a big time spoiler.

And limit her to about 4 hrs of sleep, it also helps if you can force her to have multiple 3-4 hr flights in the previous 12 hours prior to the proposal.......................

Disney does have 2 types of wedding plans. The full blown, "we will do anything you want, even blow up the Tree of Life, if you pay for it" unlimited plan. And there is the one I did. This was called, at the time, the Intimate Wedding. They would allow up to 10 guests I believe, not sure how it goes now. But that was a very reasonable cost, if you don't want more people then 10 or so, I think they make exceptions for small children.

We loved the whole thing. Make sure they go check out the wedding pavilion and planners office by the GF....as long as she accepts. Beautiful place.
