This Splash Mountain Proposal Is What Disney Dreams Are Made Of

Nothing like Disney magic, a diamond ring, and a whole lot of water to make a proposal memorable.

Capturing a proposal on camera is nothing new, unless you're a guy named Patrick De Nicola and you pop the question on Splash Mountain and end up with the most EPIC snapshot ever.

Seriously. That happened. Check this out:

Amazing, right? The faces! The water! The ring!

Of course, Annie DiMaria said yes — though that was back in March 2013. De Nicola just shared the awesome picture on Imgur Sunday and it's since racked up over 400,000 views.

He captioned the shot: "My wife and I have always been huge Disney fans. We both grew up going every year. She knew that I had bought a ring, so the only thing I had left was the element of surprise. I knew what her favorite ride was, and I knew that the last place she would expect me to pop the question was the drop... The Disney Cast Members helped with everything. It was perfect."

We're just glad the ring didn't fly out of the box, considering DiMaria wrote that the center stone was her grandmother's.

This adorable couple has since tied the knot — at Disney World, of course. They said "I do" in July 2014 and they told Huffington Post that they "kept most of the Disney-thematics to a minimum."
