6 Incredible Ideas for your Orlando Proposal
Planning any proposal can be a challenge, but here are a few ideas for Orlando proposals that will make it feel like a breeze. Below you’ll find places to propose in Orlando, proposal ideas, and some quick tips on making sure the moment is just right.
A proposal is once in a lifetime, don’t spend your life regretting missing photos of it.
Orlando Proposal Ideas
- Remind of them of how it all began – at the place you had your first date.
Take your partner to the place you had your first date. Even if it’s just a coffee shop, chances are the sentimental connection will mean more than the location itself. Share what you remember most from your first date, talk about what they wore and how you felt(if you remember) and go above and beyond to make the experience as special as can be. Then, surprise them with the question.
- Propose on a Private Plane at a local Hanger
Find your inner Casablanca! Going to a local hangar (smaller airports) and renting out a plane for a quick surprise isn’t all that hard. If you have a love for aviation and want an incredible backdrop, you can’t be much more unique than a plan. You can have a florist bring some flowers, maybe a sign, and pop the question right in front of the plane!
- Go to a local Aquarium
Proposing in an aquarium is a great way to ask! A photographer in hiding doesn’t seem out of place, and you can usually find a nice quiet picturesque location inside without too many people around.
- Disney Fireworks Cruise
Fireworks are just classically romantic, and luckily you don’t have to wait until the Fourth of July to see them if you live in Orlando. You can do a Disney World proposal under the fireworks. The parks are a bit packed for a proposal at firework time though. I would recommend chartering a private cruise and watching fireworks with your partner. As of right now, the cost for this begins at $399 and you can book that directly through Disney.
- Fill a room with prints of you and your partner.
Get prints of photos of the two of you throughout your relationship. Pick a room in your home (or even a hotel room) and hang the photos up all around. You’ll be surrounded by some of the greatest memories of your time together while asking one of the most important questions of your life.
- Surprise them with a dream trip.
Pack a bag for the both of you, pick your partner up for work, and take them out to dinner at a local romantic restaurant. As dinner ends, place two plane tickets to their dream destination on the table. Tell them the bags are packed and in the car, you took care of everything except for one more thing, get down on one knee and ask! You could also save the question for the destination, but that is all up to you.
Can you imagine the amount of brownie points you’ll get if you surprise them with photos too?

Frequently asked questions about marriage proposals:
What’s the most romantic way to propose?
There’s no proposal that works for everyone because every person, and every couple, is different. What’s considered romantic for one person may not be considered romantic for another. To ensure that a proposal is perfect for you, the best thing you can do is put a lot of thought into it and go above and beyond to show your partner how much you care about them.
What do I say while proposing?
Be original! There’s no set script for proposals. The most important thing is that you say what you mean, and it’s from the heart. Chances are, your partner picked you for a reason. Following that logic, they most likely want you to be yourself during the proposal, not recite a handful of lines you found online. Though quoting a movie would be kind of funny, it’s not recommended.
How do you record a proposal?
I highly recommend at least having a photographer there. Ideally, you’re only going to do this once, and those photos will save the memory for a lifetime. Hiring a proposal photographer is fairly easy. Most photographers are willing to set up your phone on a tripod and record that as well if hiring a videographer is out of budget. If you’re by yourself in a private space, consider setting up a hidden camera ahead of time (your phone is fine). If you’re in a public space, be sure to hire a professional photographer or videographer to capture the moment.
Have peace of mind knowing your once-in-a-lifetime moments won’t be missed.
