When you hear the word Disneyland, you think about magic, beauty, and fairytales. Almost all of us have grown up wanting to put Disneyland on our bucket list.

Things don’t always go as planned.

A thoughtful boyfriend decided to pop the question but wanted it to be perfect. After all, he was preparing for his happily-ever-after.

When you think of your happily-ever-after, there is one thought that comes to mind – Disney.

It wasn’t surprising that this man wanted to propose to his girlfriend in Disneyland Paris. He chose the park’s iconic Cinderella Castle and decided to ask permission beforehand.

Everything was going smoothly.

He went to his knees and popped the question. His girlfriend was shocked but was really happy.

They have a castle background, fine weather and two people in love and it couldn’t be more perfect.

Then a Disneyland employee snatched the ring and ran!

Everyone was shocked by how fast the Disneyland employee was. He darts between them and gets the box with the ring inside.

He gestures to them to go down and points to where they should be. The man who proposed stayed calm and whispered, “She said yes.”

However, the employee replied with a stern voice, “Yes, that’s great, but over here will be even better.”

A ruined moment gone viral.

The entire ordeal was caught on cam and was later posted online.

“POS destroyed my best friend’s moment. He asked for permission beforehand.”

A fairy tale proposal gone terribly wrong.

The Reddit video soon became viral with over 10.9K comments.

Almost all the people who saw the viral video were dismayed by how the situation was handled. Many former employees said that the action wasn’t right.

Former employees said that they could let the proposal finish and then talk to the people privately. Also, the man who proposed had asked permission and someone said it was okay.

No one could understand what happened.

Aside from abruptly cutting the precious moment of the couple, it was very wrong to grab the ring and run with it.

Technically, the Disneyland employee took someone else’s possession. His actions, of course, had consequences.

Can you imagine this viral video’s effects on the people involved?

Their wedding proposal is now ruined.

You can’t bring back that precious time or the genuine happiness of that “magical” feeling.

A few days after the clip went viral; the spokesperson for the involved Disneyland Paris had released a statement to Newsweek.

“We regret how this was handled,” the spokesperson said. “We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right.”

Though there was no update on what type of actions the company took to “make things right” and to at least compensate for what had happened.
