When we learnt of this story, courtesy of Inside the Magic (ITM), we knew we had to share this bride-to-be’s own true life Disney fairy tale…
Ally and her now husband-to-be, Harrison, recently visited Walt Disney World on a holiday with Harrison’s family. Though Harrison and his family are massive Walt Disney World fans and veterans, Ally never had the chance to visit a Disney Park, until now.
The established outlet, as mentioned above, had the chance to talk with Ally to find out more about this unforgettable moment. Here is what she had to say:
“We booked this trip in December to go with his family who are also Disney veterans. We have been together for over 4 years. Magic Kingdom was day two of our Disney World trip as we went to Disney Springs the first day. I’ve been waiting for that moment since I was 4 and as soon as we got in, I was reeling!”
Ally continued to tell ITM about her day at the park, seeing several different Disney characters including the princesses:
“We saw Mickey and friends when we arrived and I cried haha! [Throughout]the day we had a split party of his mom, himself and I, and we’re waiting on the rest of his family to join us. We parted ways to go see the princesses on a motorcade on Main Street so his mom could find his brother and dad in the meantime. As a lover of all things spooky and Disney, I had been waiting all day to ride The Haunted Mansion. They wanted all of us to ride it together, they’re all huge fans of the attraction. So, we booked it from Main Street to the Haunted Mansion.”
The amusing part is that Ally, Harrison, and the rest of the family saw a castle proposal on their way to The Haunted Mansion:
“On the way, we passed the castle [Cinderella’s Castle] just in time for a castle proposal. We shouted and clapped for them while passing and I actually made a joke about how I was slightly jealous of the lovely couple. We laughed and kept making our way to our destination.”
However, what Ally didn’t know is that she would be involved in the next Walt Disney World proposal:
“When we got there, his mom had flagged down PhotoPass Photographer Eric so that we could get our picture taken in front of The Haunted Mansion before the storm rolled all the way in. (Turns out he was actually leaving for the day and stayed to take our picture. And in order to make it even more special, he called to see if he could do it in from of the actual mansion itself!) I was excited for the group photo commemorating our magical trip!
He pulled Harrison and I aside first (Which I had assumed was just for some fun couple pictures) and made us do some cool shots. He then asked if we had anymore poses we wanted to do. Harrison spoke up and said he could think of one more. Then he got down on one knee and said, “I love you and want to spend forever with you, ‘til death do us part?” I was shocked, elated, and cried! Of course, I said yes!
The crowd cheered and applauded and about 30 seconds later, the lightning began. It was the spookiest best proposal ever and, afterwards, we all went on the ride and I fell in love with it. Now, it’s going to be the theme of the our wedding!”
What a beautiful story! We’d like to think the ghostly inhabitants of the Mansion enjoyed this as much as its living guests! Congratulations to the happy couple, we wish you a lifetime of happiness.
