Everyone says they tear up when they see the pics. I'm sure they could set up something similar for you at CG if you wanted.
Update. Disney Photopass is not able to send someone to CG. Disney Fine Art Photography will send someone for $495 (out of the budget).

So....we will be relying on the wait staff and any disboard people that happen to be there that evening

BTW, I picked up the ring, and it's gorgeous. I had to send it with my parents until my girlfriend goes home for Christmas. I will post pics on the 23rd for anyone interested.

that's so strange, especially now that they just launched that whole Disney engagement site too.

I'm with you on the going with the staff there or any diser's that happen to be there. While it's nice to have the pics, I definitely don't think it would be worth $500 to get them. They'll come out just fine and your GF will be so happy and surprised.

I'd love to see pics of the ring. I can't believe your vacation is so soon!

I am happy I worked out the engagement plans prior to that site. Using DFTE (new slang for Disney Fairytale Engagements) would probably drive up the cost. I wonder if they will shun impromptu engagements, like impromptu weddings. It also takes all the fun(stress) of orchestrating it oneself. I talked to countless cast members at disney photo, floral, cali grill, and reservations to make this work. Not to mention the support of Mindy (thanks again, I am so happy this is going to work out!).

Pez, I have the same sentiments regarding the DxDP...what diet? I'll be eating 3 TS and 2 snacks per day!

I will post photos of the ring tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks again for everyone's help/support. It wouldn't have been as fun/memorable using DFTE.

I'm glad it's working out for you and that you were able to get help on this board. I'm not a fan of that new site either. I don't know, I guess it could help out some guys, but it seems like it would take out all the personal elements. And you're right- I bet it is a lot more expensive.

A little secret for anybody reading this thread that might be wanting to propose: At least when I worked there, we loved helping out people with magical things like that. If there was a little something we could do, we did it. And we didn't always charge for it. If you're nice and tell people you want to create a magical moment for some kind of special occasion, we'll do our best to help you. At least, that's how it was when I worked there. That was one of the fun parts of my job!

AHHHH only 2 days away! We leave tomorrow morning. I've forgotten all the little things, researching them now. What knee to go down on? What to say?

BTW, I asked for her father's approval in person the day after Christmas. I was so nervous. He's a man of few words, and just replied with a handshake.
(Couldn't help but think; "Deal! She's yours now!")


Sorry I didn't get a chance to post pics of the ring. I will post them when we get back, along with pics of the event. Also....I suspect she will start a Disney PJ for our wedding : )

Thanks again for everyone's help. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
