Disney Paris Employee Interrupts A Proposal, Gets Criticized By Folks Online

There is only one thing that can ruin a proposal at Disneyland. And that is an employee…

Disneyland is a magical place, but proposing to your significant other is still something that is anything but ideal there

A video has recently surfaced on the internet of this one couple at Disneyland. In the video, we see the guy kneeling down on one knee and attempting to pop the question to his gorgeous significant other. I say attempting because not several seconds in, a Disneyland employee rushes in to ruin it all.

Why? Apparently, this particular platform in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle was fenced off. The employee snatched the engagement ring from the man’s hand and proceeded to slide down the stairs nearby, gesturing that they should relocate to the area he was pointing at.

FYI, the reason why it’s fenced off, according to Disney Reporter Edith Gervin, is because the platform is used for the Dream… and Shine Brighter! shows multiple times per day in celebration of Disneyland Paris’ 30-Year Anniversary. Reportedly, the guy proposed close to when a show was scheduled to start, so time was of the essence.

Before the 21-second video cuts off, we can see the guy approach the employee to explain the situation, but the employee was having none of it and the moment was ruined. People could hear booing starting soon after.

However, there are claims that the guy had approached another employee, a woman, and got her permission to propose beforehand. Just that the intervening employee was seemingly not aware of it.

In a Reddit comment under the now-viral video, OP, who is the proposing man’s best friend, explained “the other female employee said: ‘it’s not allowed to go up there’ he then answered that he want to propose on which she replied with ‘if that’s the case go for it’. He then went for it and the rest is on tape.”

In another comment, OP also elaborated that the employee vanished as quickly as he had appeared. His best friend also was fighting the urge to make the moment even worse by slamming the guy on the ground for ruining what was supposed to be the best day of his life thus far.

In a statement to Newsweek, a Disneyland spokesperson said that they regret how poorly this situation was handled, and they have apologized to the couple, offering to make it right. Whatever “make it right” means is yet to be determined.

All of this happened at Disneyland Paris, France, in front of the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, on a fenced-off platform. So, yeah, heads up if you’re gonna be doing this.

As soon as the video hit the interspace, it went viral. It initially popped up on the subreddit r/IamATotalPieceOfS**t where, as of this article, it has a bit over 96,000 upvotes with about 60 Reddit awards. It was also covered by a number of news media outlets and the video also found its way to YouTube.

At the end of the video, folks can hear booing, and the internet was pretty much of the same opinion once it reached Reddit

As for the internet’s reactions, for the most part, it was the same as the people booing in the video. This was accompanied by criticism, pointing out the employee’s tone of voice as if he was more than happy to ruin the moment, even proud, perhaps. But the moment that people criticized him the most was him snatching the ring. You just don’t do that. Period.

Others gave credit to the proposing man for not losing it. And some speculate that the employee took the opportunity while he was kneeling to intervene so as to not get his butt handed to him. And that’s probably why he vanished soon after.

Yet others speculated that this employee will not last long in the company as Disney tends to take its image of “Happiest Place On Earth” seriously.

We got in touch with the original poster of the video, who’s the proposing man’s best friend, but we have yet to hear from them, so stay tuned!

Whatever the case, you can check out the video in our article as well as on Reddit and YouTube with all of the comments intact. But before you go, what are your thoughts on this? If you were the employee, how would you have handled this? Let us know in the comment section below!
