Epic Proposal Seemingly Shuts Down Disney Park Ride

One Disney Park proposal recently went viral on social media when it seemingly shut down the Disney Park ride the Guests were on.

To be able to celebrate a milestone at a Disney Theme Park is a unique experience. It’s one fans worldwide love the opportunity to have, and going to any Disney Park, whether that’s Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom or EPCOT in Walt Disney World in Florida, or Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park in Southern California, is the perfect place to honor a special occasion, the Disney way.

When it comes to special occasions, there are few more enthralling and memorable than a wedding proposal. And a Disney Park is a perfect place to make this happen. Whether it is a love for nostalgia, for Star Wars, the superheroes at Avengers Campus, or just the magic of sparkling castles, any Disney Resort in the world forms the perfect backdrop for that picture-perfect special moment.

One recent marriage proposal at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Southern California, went viral on social media after it ostensibly shut down Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The Disney Parks official TikTok account shared this on the platform with the caption “the only acceptable reason to drop your lightsaber.”

In the video, the Guest and owner of the video, Naty Madrigal — is seen posing for photos with a Disney Cast Member wielding a red lightsaber, while in the background, her boyfriend drops to one knee. The Cast Member instructs Madrigal to “Turn to the Falcon.” On seeing her boyfriend on one knee, Madrigal casts her saber aside and embraces him while Guests and Park-goers on the streets of Batuu cheer. It’s a beautiful moment.

The Disney Parks are truly wonderful places to have this kind of magical moment, which is why it can sometimes hurt when that goes wrong like the infamous Disneyland Paris proposal from earlier this year which resurfaced recently.

We at Disney Fanatic will continue to report on all Disney news as it comes to light.
