Engagement season is still in full swing! So if you’re wondering where to propose in Orlando, we’ve got your back. These aren’t just ordinary, cliché places to propose, though. We gathered up all our experience as wedding planners in Orlando and knowledge about the city to bring you this list of six spots that will definitely make your proposal a memorable one.
Aerophile, Disney Springs’ hot air balloon experience, is a perfect option for all the more adventurous couples out there. With stunning panoramic views up to 10 miles away (on a clear day), this gives you a wonderful backdrop to propose. Since the basket of the hot air balloon can hold up to 29 people, you could even sneak a photographer and videographer on with you to capture the moment.
The Wheel gives you an incredible view of Orlando, including nature reserves, lakes, Walt Disney World, and Universal Orlando. Similar to the Disney Springs hot air balloon, the private capsule can hold up to 16 people, so you could sneak a photographer and videographer in, posing as guests, to capture the moment. If you know that could make your partner feel a little uncomfortable, you could request to ride the capsule with just you two, so you can share a beautiful and private moment, and take photos once you land again.
Or, if you want to go all out on the fairytale theme, you can enjoy a meal together at Cinderella’s Royal Table! To get there, you climb an enchanting spiral staircase to what looks like the Grand Hall of a real castle. As you eat dinner, you’ll be surrounded by stained glass windows and stone archways — it’s truly a dinner like no other. Just be sure to make a reservation!
One important thing we feel we should note is that it can be really tempting to plan a proposal down to the very last second. However, since it’s an escape room and full of surprises in its nature, we recommend feeling it out and waiting for the right moment to go down on one knee. If you’re struggling to plan, you could also recruit the escape room host to help you out by giving you a bit more time at the end to do the proposal!
The garden is very well maintained, and it’s a hot spot for weddings because of the natural beauty and variety. We highly suggest you hire a photographer to photograph the moment since there are so many great areas that are really gorgeous and romantic.
We love Lake Eola Park in Downtown Orlando because of the variety of activities it has. If you simply want to walk around the lake and enjoy the view of Orlando’s skyline (sunset is breathtaking), you can do that on their near-one-mile track that circles the lake. Or, for a bit more adventure, you can rent swan-shaped paddle boats. There are also plenty of local restaurants, so you can celebrate with a meal after your proposal!
Hopefully, this blog post got the wheels turning about how you’re going to go about your proposal in Orlando. The truth is, there are so many amazing spots because Orlando has a ton of unique experiences to offer, and this blog post just scratches the surface. If you end up going with one of our suggestions, we would love if you tag us on your Instagram stories at @blushbbg after your proposal so we can celebrate right along with you!
