Walt Disney World may be one of the world's most popular family attractions but it's also home to several romantic spots that are ideal venues for a wedding proposal. When you want to sweep your sweetheart off their feet, you can do it in true Disney fashion with a wedding proposal that's staged around Cinderella's castle or at one of the upscale restaurants on the property. Walt Disney World is also home to some venues that offer beautiful views of the lake and serve as a picture-perfect setting for that special moment.
Here are ten places to propose at Walt Disney World:
1. California Grill
One of the most beautiful restaurants on property, the California Grill at the Contemporary Resort offers views of the Magic Kingdom and is also a great place to watch the fireworks show. Talk to a Cast Member ahead of time to set up a "Will You Marry Me" platter where the ring is set atop an engraved glass slipper.
2. On a Boat Tour on Seven Seas Lagoon
Reserve seats on a luxury watercraft for a VIP boating experience on Seven Seas Lagoon right before the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom. Wait for the music to begin or enjoy the show and propose right after the fireworks display.
3. Victoria & Albert's Restaurant
This is one of my favorite dining experiences at Walt Disney World and will be one that you will remember forever. The Chef's Table at Victoria & Albert's restaurant at the Grand Floridian is an exclusive fine dining experience where you can treat your sweetheart to a gourmet seven-course meal. Talk to a Cast Member about setting up a ring on a dessert platter at the end of the dinner for the ultimate proposal.
4. Characters in Flight Balloon Ride
This tethered hot air balloon is a popular attraction for couples at Disney. Plan on boarding the balloon right around the fireworks show at Epcot so you can see the fireworks when you reach 400 feet, then propose to your sweetheart.
5. Rose Garden at the Cinderella Castle
If you're planning a proposal during daylight hours, set the stage at the beautiful rose garden in front of the Cinderella Castle. It's a picture-perfect setting and you can arrange to have a Cast Member take your pictures right after your sweetheart says yes.
6. Coral Reef Restaurant at Epcot
Make your way to the Living Seas Pavilion to enjoy the underwater views. This can be a romantic setting for the proposal and you can have a Cast Member take a photo of you both to capture the moment.
7. Beaches at the Grand Floridian
Another picturesque setting for a daytime proposal, the beaches in front of the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa can be a great place for couples to relax and enjoy the views of Seven Seas Lagoon. Head away from the pool area to find a quiet spot and pop the question.
8. Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort
The Disney Weddings Engagement team can make arrangements to have the ukulele player at Walt Disney World's Polynesian Resort play your favorite song and introduce your wedding proposal. This can be a fun way to surprise your sweetheart and you can both enjoy champagne and a meal at the resort right afterward.
9. Sunset Boulevard at Hollywood Studios
Settle in on a bench on Sunset Boulevard right at sunset to take in the view and then pop the question. Head the Prime Time Café, a '50s-style diner after the event for a champagne toast and some classic American desserts.
10. Staircase at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
The Grand Staircase at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is another romantic venue that's perfect for popping the question. Book the couples room at the spa to enjoy a couples massage and a glass of champagne after the proposal.
