Perhaps there’s nothing more romantic than getting proposed to in the La Ville Lumière (“the City of Lights”) and The City Of Love. And suppose your future fiancée (fingers crossed she says yes) is a fan of Disney and all things magic. In that case, Disneyland Paris is the perfect destination to experience perhaps one of the most precious moments in life. However, some picture-perfect moments might get spoiled by employees, who maybe take their duty to keep things under control way too seriously.
A video has recently surfaced on the internet of the proposal gone wrong at Disneyland Paris. In the video, a guy tried proposing to his significant other when a Disney employee showed up and ripped the engagement ring off his hand. Don’t worry, he returned the ring to the owner, but the moment was ruined anyhow.

Apparently, the platform the guy chose to make a proposal on was fenced off and, according to Disney Reporter Edith Gervin, is used for the Dream… and Shine Brighter! shows in celebration of Disneyland Paris’ 30-Year Anniversary. Reportedly, the platform was surrounded by equipment and fireworks and was fenced off to eliminate the threat of any potential hazards.
However, there are claims that the guy has had permission. Apparently, the guy had approached another Disneyland employee, a woman, beforehand and got her approval. The intervening worker was obviously not aware of it before he went ahead and spoiled the proposal.
After the incident, a Disney spokesperson gave a statement to Newsweek, saying that “We regret how this was handled.” “We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right,” the spokesperson added.
