Looking to pop the question at the most magical place on earth? You've come to the right place. Disneyland and Disney World parks aren't just for kids. They are also the perfect backdrop for a playful proposal. And while there are plenty of spots to get down on one knee, Disney has the best recommendations for making that moment extra magical.

If planning isn't your forte, fear not: Disney has entire proposal packages to choose from, including a romantic dinner inside Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle with a glass slipper presented on a bed of rose petals, signature desserts, and a celebratory toast, all captured on camera by a Disney PhotoPass photographer. Walt Disney World also offers Enchanting Extras to make your experience even more memorable, like dessert parties, horse-drawn carriage rides, epic fireworks displays, cruises, and in-room celebrations. Feeling like a princess yet?

We're not kidding when we say that Disney has every detail covered—right down to your bridal bling. Create your very own happily ever after with their exclusive Enchanted Disney Fine Jewelry line of engagement rings inspired by Disney princesses. Whether you align yourself with Belle, Elsa, or Cinderella, there is sure to be a ring to match your inner princess.

You may also consider proposing to your future spouse over an elegant dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant or Wine Country Trattoria at Disneyland Resort. Dinner includes FastPass+ tickets reserving your place in a special viewing section at World of Color, the nighttime spectacular at Disney California Adventure.

If you're set on making the moment more unique, Disney has a handful of suggestions to pop the big question. For a rejuvenating excursion, the Mandara Spa at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa or Senses Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridan Resort is just the romantic oasis.

If you're more of the artsy type, speak to one of Disney’s sketch artists in advance for a personalized drawing of you and your soon-to-be spouse. If caricatures aren't your thing, you can still be sure to capture the big moment—or even your engagement photos—by booking a Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons photographer for a private session.

Regardless of how you choose to do it, you can always turn to one of Disney's Engagement Planners to help you create an unforgettable, must-Instagram-now! experience. You can go ahead and consider their expert planners the fairy godmother of proposals.
