Top 10 Places to Propose at Walt Disney World

If you’re planning to propose to that special someone, chances are you’ve given a lot of thought to exactly how, when and where you’ll pop the question.  But have you ever considered proposing in Walt Disney World?  For Disney fans, there’s no better place on Earth to say “yes”!  WDW is full of beautiful spots that are perfect for a proposal – all you have to do is pick one!  Here are some of the best places in Walt Disney World to propose to that amazing guy or girl.

1. Cinderella’s Royal Table

Proposing over a romantic dinner is definitely a classic.  And if a fairy tale castle doesn’t say “romance”, what does?  Enjoy a fantastic meal inside Cinderella Castle itself, at Cinderella’s Royal Table.  You’ll have a great view of Fantasyland, you’ll enjoy luxurious royal décor, and your significant other will feel like a king or queen!  You can even order the delectable Chocolate Glass Slipper Dessert, complete with a personalized message, to celebrate the occasion.

2. Liberty Square Bridge

If the price tag at Cinderella’s Royal Table is a bit steep for you, you can still create a Cinderella Castle-centred proposal at Magic Kingdom.  There are of course numerous photo opps of the iconic castle around the park, but our favorite is the view from Liberty Square Bridge.  Along with a magnificent view of the castle, you’ll also have the moat and trees for ambience.  This spot is fairly well known, so if it’s too crowded for your liking, try the Tomorrowland Terrace for another proposal spot with a lovely castle backdrop.

3. China Pavilion

Why not escape to a quiet oasis in the middle of Walt Disney World’s Epcot, and propose amid the beauty of a traditional Chinese garden?  The China pavilion is one of the most picturesque in the park.  The peaceful lotus pond, waterfall and footbridges provide an idyllic spot for a proposal, and you’ll feel like you’re miles away from Epcot’s crowds.  Plus, the stunning replica of Beijing’s Temple of Heaven makes for an excellent backdrop for engagement photos!

4. Tomorrowland at Night

Where better to make plans for the future than Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland?  We much prefer this area at night than during the day, when the vibrant, dazzling lights make it the perfect backdrop for a proposal.  The Tomorrowland Transit Authority People Mover offers splendid views of the park, plus it’s rarely crowded, so it gets our vote for best spot in Tomorrowland for a futuristic proposal.

5. Polynesian Village Resort Beach

There are some beautiful, romantic locales outside of Walt Disney World’s parks, so don’t count these out when choosing a spot to propose.  One of the most perfect is the beach at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.  No matter what time of day you choose, the white sands, palm trees, and South Pacific-themed villas and bungalows make for a memorable proposal – but we recommend a sunset proposal!  Who wouldn’t want to get engaged on a tropical beach in the most magical place in the world?

6. Millennium Falcon

If you and your loved one are Star Wars fans, then a proposal in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a no-brainer!  You’ll want to spend tons of time exploring Black Spire Outpost while you’re in Hollywood Studios, and one of the best photo opps in Galaxy’s Edge is, unsurprisingly, in front of the Millennium Falcon.  Create an out-of-this world proposal in front of the most legendary ship in Stars Wars history, and start your engagement off in style, in a galaxy far, far away.

7. Pandora – World of Avatar

Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is simply mesmerizing, and never more so than at night.  For an ethereally beautiful ambience, propose here when Pandora comes to life in bioluminescent splendor as darkness falls.  Your significant other will feel like the only person in the world when you share your feelings under a glowing waterfall on an alien planet!

8. Animal Kingdom Lodge Savanna

Take a walk on the wild side and propose to your loved one on an African savanna, with your favorite animals cheering you on.  Head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort, where the intimate Arusha Rock Outlook is just one of many proposal-worthy spots overlooking the four (yes, four!) savannas adjacent to the resort.

9. During Fireworks

The highlight of any day at Walt Disney World is an evening fireworks show.  Fireworks can make an already magical moment, such as a proposal, even more magical! Magic Kingdom and EPCOT offer nightly fireworks, and you can even watch YouTube videos online of your chosen show to choose exactly when you want to propose.  If you’d rather a more private fireworks proposal removed from the center of the action, there are several places where you can enjoy fireworks outside of the parks, from a restaurant or resort look-off.

10. On Your Favorite Ride

As amazing as all of the above spots are for a proposal, the best location for your special moment is of course one that has a special, shared meaning for you and your significant other.  So what better way to propose than on your favorite attraction, or perhaps the first ride you rode together?  Harness the magic of Walt Disney World, and create a fairy tale proposal neither of you will ever forget!
