Disney is known for giving people magical moments. The kind of moments that put you right in your feels, and keep you wanting to come back for more.
But, there was an incident recently at Disneyland Paris that left people confused. And, quite honestly, people were a little ticked.
MANY people have gone to Disney to get engaged. It is kind of a “thing” to do the proposing right in front of the castle — the hub and heart of the Disney theme parks.
Not too many people, however, have their proposals ruined by Cast Members who are a little too ambitious at their jobs.
That is exactly what happened to one happy couple at Disneyland Paris who were just doing their proposal thing.
The video popped onto people’s radar when it was posted on Reddit.
According to Insider, one user on Reddit, who goes by the name u/wasgehtlan, posted the video to the “I Am a Total Piece of Shit” forum.
In the video, there is a couple on a platform in front of the castle. The dude gets down on one knee and pulls out a ring.
That’s where things go downhill.
No, the girlfriend didn’t turn down the proposal.
A Disney Cast Member sprints over, crashes the proposal party, gets in between the couple, takes the ring, and walks the couple off the platform before the woman even gets to answer.
Okay. I would be so pissed off.
You can see the man in the video point and say “She said …”
The Cast Member interrupts him and says, “Yes, that’s great, but over here it’s going to be even better,” as he walks the couple down off the platform.
People in the background of the video can be heard cheering. But, the cheering quickly turns to booing once the Cast Member total ruins the proposal.
The person who posted the video claimed to be a friend of the couple and said in the comments that a different employee had given them permission to go on the platform after learning the man was planning to propose.Insider
There appears to be a second Cast Member at the bottom of the platform who is also coaxing the couple to come down the steps of the platform.
You have to admit, that was a pretty rotten thing for the Cast Member to do.
According to Newsweek, the original poster on Reddit said “his friend ‘actually asked a female co-worker’ if proposing on the platform was OK.”
But, this male Cast Member had other ideas of what was okay. Apparently forever ruining a special moment for the couple was on the agenda.
The proposal had pretty much happened. He could have waited, let the couple have their moment, and then told them that being on the platform was a no-no.
The Cast Member totally acted in a way that I’m sure Disney would frown upon.
As for their part, Disney has kind of apologized.
We regret how this was handled — We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right.Disney Spokesperson
