Valentine’s Day Proposals: “Yes” Happens Here

posted on February 13th, 2016 by Korri McFann, Worldwide Marketing & Business Development Director, Weddings & Honeymoons


Love is always in the air here at Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, so it will come as no surprise that Valentine’s Day just may be my favorite holiday. Throw three incredible Disney Parks proposals in the mix and you had me at hello! Full of excitement, love and a few understandable jitters we’re celebrating my favorite holiday by sharing a few Walt Disney World engagements that took place just in time for Valentine’s Day. These grooms-to-be prove that true love really is the most powerful magic.

From carriage rides (can you say romantic?) to dining in Cinderella Castle, we’re honored to be the place so many couples make unforgettable memories and say “yes” each year. After all making wedding, honeymoon and engagement dreams come true is what we do.
