I can’t get enough of your Disney engagement stories! This one was a first for me. Vennesa and Jason got engaged during the newly returned Fantasmic! show at Disneyland. I love this show and what a perfect spot for some extra magic! Here’s the story as told by Vennesa:
Jason and I have been dating for 12 years and 3 months since May 22, 2005, when he was 24 years old and I was 20 years old. Our mutual friend from school introduced us, and our first date was at TGI Fridays. We have been totally in love since then; we both wanted to spend forever with each other. I hinted to him that I wanted to get a Disney proposal, or a wedding at Disney. But he told me it was not going to be a Disney proposal.
Fast forward to this August. We went to Disneyland on August 21st, a day before our anniversary. Jason told me he had to go and pick up something early in the morning. He came back and we headed to The Happiest Place on Earth. He seemed nervous all day!
We were watching the 9pm showing of Fantasmic! Since we both love Fantasmic! we both were wearing matching Fantasmic! shirts.
I didn’t realize it but while I was filming Fantasmic! live on Facebook, a mutual friend was speaking to a Cast Member to help Jason set up for the proposal. The Cast Member provided lighting from a flashlight. The song “Tale as Old as Time” from Beauty and the Beast came on where Belle goes by on the float, and the roses in the water lit up.
Suddenly I realized my boyfriend Jason was down on one knee in front of me and he asked me to marry him!! Of course I said yes!!!!! I was still filming live when a Cast Member came by with churros to congratulate us. Once the show ended our mutual friend asked us if we were ready to leave and go eat at Blue Bayou for our engagement dinner! We said yes!!
While we were waiting for our table at Blue Bayou I got phone call from my sister who watched my live video. She said, “What is this?!?” Then my mom called to congratulate us. Later on that night a friend messaged us and said, “A Disney proposal is not a proposal without Disney churros!”
Jason said this was a year’s worth of planning! I was so happy that it happened at our favorite place … my wish came true. It was the perfect Disney proposal.
My engagement ring is an Enchanted Disney Ring. It is a Cinderella Carriage on the sides with diamonds on top and blue sapphires on both sides (similar ring here). My Fiancé calls me his Cinderella.
Now we are beginning to plan our fairy tale wedding for May 2019.
Congrats to you, Vennesa and Jason! Thank you for sharing your engagement story with us!
