One of my favorite things to do at Christmastime here at Walt Disney World is go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The Magic Kingdom is lit with Christmas light and filled with Christmas music. You can have all the hot chocolate and sugar cookies you like and it’s magical. More magical than a normal day at the Magic Kingdom. It even snows on Main Street U.S.A.
If you want to propose during Christmas, this is the place to do it. There is a show that light’s Cinderella’s Castle, amazing fireworks that light up the sky to some of our favorite Christmas tunes, and a special parade featuring Santa Claus himself! But be aware that these Christmas Parties end the week before Christmas.
Check out these photos of some of the beautiful sites you can propose.

The other day my boyfriend David and I awoke very early to make our 7:45 reservations at Kona Cafe for breakfast. Kona is located inside Disneys Polynesian Resort, just one of the three resorts that sit along the Seven Seas Lagoon. We were sleepy-eyed but excited. This would be a first for both of us and we found it extremely wonderful. We left Kona happily stuffed on breakfast and decided to walk around the resort. I had brought my camera incase I was struck by inspiration and you all are in luck because I was.
There are many beautiful locations in this resort to spend a special moment with the one you love, but there are two particular spots that stuck out to me. The first is along the beach and/or dock. At 8:30 Am the beach was empty and extremely peaceful. We enjoyed our quiet walk after breakfast and the stunning view of both Disney’s Wedding Pavilion and Cinderella’s Castle across the lagoon. We also found out that the beach is one of the most popular places to watch the fireworks at the end of the night.

The second location is a place called Sunset Point. This is a beautiful hilled location that looks straight across the lagoon at Cinderella’s Castle. You could watch the sun rise there, but it is an even better location to watch the sun set. There is a little path between some palm trees and it would provide the perfect place to share an intimate moment with your love. It also has a great view of the castle to watch the fireworks from.

The Polynesian Resort provides a sweet tropical getaway in the midst of a crazy world. Stepping inside you find tropical tress and waterfalls. You find some music, huge windows that let in warm sunlight, and a fun relaxing atmosphere. It’s a tropical destination without having to go to the tropics. It may just be a Disney resort, but it’s an escape. I hope that you can find yourself as inspired there as I was.
