He had it all pre-arranged.... He had e-mailed Disney a photo of the two of them, and had a number to text while they were on the monorail depicting exactly what they were wearing. My son had told the bride to be that he had dinner reservations at Ohana. Upon exiting the monorail they were greeted with by a "survey person" who asked them if they would mind being used in a vacation video.... so they agreed. They were taken downstairs, outside and were "mic'd up" with microphones and only the camera person, the interview person and prospective Bride & Groom were on the beach area with the back drop being the Contemporary Resort & the Magic Kingdom Castle. The interview person asked several questions and then asked "So are you here to celebrate anything for this trip" She said "No, we are just on vacation" when the interviewer said... "Well......" and she turned and saw my son down on one knee holding an AMAZING engagement ring. She said yes, and they met us at the entrance to Magic Kingdom shortly thereafter and surprised us with the ring! So exciting! We were so happy for them!!!!
My son said they get to select music they want to play in the background of the video proposal and then it will be mailed to them in approximately two weeks.
Looks like I get to be Mother of the Groom in about a year or so! No exact date yet...
Talk about a MAGICAL MOMENT!
