Our Disney Engagement!

Recommended Posts

I love reading everyone's engagement stories on this topic so I had to share mine!

 

Here's my FI's point of view from our website:

"From the start my engagement plans seemed like a disaster! They messed up the ring to the point where I only got it a week before we left, even though I had ordered it six months before. I was freaking out days before I knew I was gong to ask, and to make it worse our flight was delayed and we sat in the airport all day, and I struggled hard from being so nervous! (My parents and sister will concur).

Waiting at the airport!

 

The morning I was going to ask I was in a panic and freaking out. From trying to figure out the exact moment when I'd ask her, to trying to figure out how someone was just gonna put it into my pocket while we were walking hand in hand. In the end, it all worked out, and even though there were a ton of people around when it happened, I wouldnt have it any other way...Im pretty sure she enjoyed it also, because she once told me that if I asked in a crappy way that she would say no and make me do it again another day."

My turn!

I'm a total Disney freak, and Princess Belle is my absolute favorite--I own dolls, figurines, suitcases, shirts, everything I can get on with her face on it!  When we visited Disney World, the ONLY thing I wanted to do was see Belle's and Beast's castle, so I dragged everyone there as soon as we got the the Magic Kingdom. Of course, I wanted our pictures taken in front of the stained glass window. As soon as Corey and I posed, his entire family was holding a camera or cell phone in their hand, and I wondered "Why does everyone want to take this picture?" He turned to me and said "Do you want to start this vacation right?" And my heart started to race. I yelled "Are you messing with me?!" a little louder than was perhaps necessary, but sure enough, he plopped down on one knee and popped the question! Everyone else passing by the window froze and watched until I said yes, and then started cheering. It was truly magical!

To say I was SHOCKED is an understatement!

 

Of course, a cast member ran up right away with our "Just Engaged" buttons ready to go, and right away, they swept us and our entire family straight over to Story Time with Belle, where we got to go straight to the front for her to give us her congratulations:

(As a five year old at heart, this was amazing!)

 

Even though I was still in shock, was ready to start milking this for all it was worth--I asked the cast member who brought us our buttons veeeeery nicely if there was any way we could have dinner at the Be Our Guest restaurant (you have to make reservations EIGHT MONTHS in advance to get in for dinner....we didn't even know we were going 8 months prior!), and sure enough, they got us a reservation for 7 pm!

(The Grey Stuff really is delicious!)

 

 

For the rest of the week, cast members were throwing fast passes at us (we even got to go straight to the front of the line on Splash Mountain to make sure we made our dinner reservation on time!) and everyone we encountered told us congratulations.  I really got to feel like a princess!  Not to brag, but I think I picked myself a good one :)

Same here!  I was researching Disney weddings and looking at the packages and the prices, and at first I was like "Oh, that's not too bad!" .....until I realized I was looking at the one that JUST included the bride and the groom  :blink:  CRAZY expensive!  I think we're going to go back for our first anniversary :) My best friend just got back from vacation and brought us back wedding ears that I'm going to bring with me so we have a little Disney magic!

(That is, if I can get them back from him and his friends......)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
