One man was eager to propose to the love of his life – so he planned out every detail.
With Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in the background at Disneyland Paris – the man got down on one knee and was in the middle of his proposal – when suddenly a Disney employee came over and interrupted the moment.
The Disney employee then proceeded to snatch the ring out of the guy’s hand – and just wait until you hear his reason why.
Literally, you just can’t make this stuff up.
Apparently, the Disney employee claimed the lovebirds were in a section of the park that they shouldn’t have been – but instead of waiting maybe 10 seconds until after the proposal – he had the GALL to interrupt and ruin the moment.
Even more infuriating, it turned out the guy who was proposing had already received permission to be there ahead of time.
The New York Post reported:
“The man, dressed in all white, is seen kneeling on an elevated platform in front of a large crowd, who can be heard cheering loudly for the couple. The woman, in a blue dress, covers her mouth in disbelief, overcome with emotion.
Suddenly, a park employee in Mickey Mouse ears rushes the stage and snags the ring out of the man’s hands then scurries down the stairs, urging the couple to come down. The baffled couple looks at the man before they follow him.
“She said, ‘yes,’” the confused man tells the employee.
“Yes, that’s great,” the buzzkill worker responds, “but over here”.”
Of course, after the clip went viral of the Disney employee ruining arguably one of the most important and sacred moments of this couple’s life – Disney was forced to issue a response.
Even Disney who is known for backing their employees had no choice but to apologize for the behavior of their employee.
Disney told Newsweek they would “make it right” and that they “apologize.”
But the internet wasn’t having it – and thousands expressed outrage towards the employee who ruined the proposal.
This @Disney employee stopped a proposal by GRABBING THE RING out of the man’s hand and telling them to move. This man had permission to do the proposal in this spot and this jerk literally ran up during the proposal and ruined their magical moment.

This is what happens when bureaucrats place “rules” and procedures on people just trying to live their lives.
The Disney employee was so focused on “keeping people safe” (when the couple was perfectly fine and not a threat to anyone) – that he ruined a moment that can never be recaptured.
Some wrongs just can’t be made right, and this is clearly one of them.
Hopefully the clip of this Disney employee gone rogue will be enough of a deterrent to stop future employees from acting this way – but given the radical “rule enforcers”, I highly doubt it.
What are your thoughts on the Disneyland employee ruining this couple’s proposal?
