Watch: Couple’s Disney marriage proposal ruined by employee
A friend of the gentleman who planned to take the knee at Disneyland in Paris, France, shared the embarrassing moment an employee gate-crashed his epic marriage proposal on social media.
In the viral video clip, first shared on Reddit, the man, dressed in all-white, was seen going on one knee with his hand raised toward his partner, against the backdrop of the popular Disneyland castle.
However, before the couple could take in the warm applauds of an audience in awe, a Disney employee quickly surfaced and grabbed the ring box out of the man’s hand, ushering the couple away from the high-rise area.
The proposer, visibly dejected, tried to reason with the employee by telling him his soon-to-be wife said yes. But, the Disney employee wanted to hear nothing of it.
“Yes, that’s great, but over here will be even better,” he said.
The embarrassing moment spread like wildfire as soon as the video surfaced on social media, with Disney absorbing much of the bad press. In response, Disney issued a public apology to the couple, admitting that the employee handled the situation very poorly.
“We have apologised to the couple involved and offered to make it right,” Disney wrote in a statement.
