Lake Eola Park
Lake Eola Park is situated in Downtown Orlando. It's main feature is a 23 acre lake with a gushing water fountain that sits at the heart of it. Lake Eola Park is surrounded by four streets, East Robinson Street, Rosalind Avenue, East Central Boulevard and North Eola Drive. These four streets create a glimmering cityscape, that forms the backdrop for this breathtaking park. So scenic is Lake Eola Park that a proposal in this tranquil setting will suffice, however there are ways to turn up the romance a notch or two.
Take your loved one out into the waters aboard a charming little swan boat and pop the question here - just be sure not to drop the ring!
If you'd prefer to pop the question on land, why not make your propsal extra special by taking a horse drawn carriage around the park.
Icon Orlando is rapidly becoming one of the most recognisable attractions on Orlando’s I-Drive. This rotating wheel attraction boasts the highest viewing platform in Orlando, giving guests stunning views over the city and the theme parks. Take a trip at sunset or during the fireworks shows to really scale up the romance as you get down on one knee and make sure to toast your future partner with a glass of champagne too as you enjoy the rest of your journey.
A Hot Air Balloon Ride
There's nothing more breathtaking than the vistas you can indulge in way up high in the skies. A hot air balloon ride practically screams proposal - so don't do this on Valentine's day if you haven't built up the courage! Take your balloon ride at sun rise to see the skies bathed in rays of sunlight or at sun set to admire the sky's spectacular array of colour.
The Tiffany Chapel
The Tiffany Chapel is a chapel interior located in the Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park. This stunningly ornate Art Nouveau chapel was designed by artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany, most famous for his work with stained glass. For art lovers especially, the Tiffany Chapel makes for a beautiful and unique proposal setting.
Theme Park Resorts
Of course you can't head all the way to Orlando and completely overlook the theme parks - especially not Walt Disney World, the ultimate home of 'Once Upon a Times' and 'Happily Ever Afters'.
If you're all about the magic, needless to say Disney World will no doubt be your port of call. In fact, Disney World has a whole proposal package just for you - so get to hinting to your loved one or start planning. It's called The Magical Proposal Meal at Cinderella's Royal Table. You can't get anymore magical than that!
If you're more for the glamour, then Universal Orlando Resort's Loews Portofino Bay's Harbor Piazza is an ideal proposal location - particularly in the evening, when the square is beautifully lit. Think Italian Riviera, complete with Italian architechture, restaurants serving up Italian cuisine, a Ventian style river lined with gondolas and the passion of Italy, making it perfect for some love and romance.
Inside the Universal parks, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter provides plenty of magical places for you to get down on one knee. Diagon Alley is goose-bump worthy, so a proposal on those cobbled streets would definitely be considered atmospheric! Our favourite spot though is in front of Hogwarts Castle. Make sure you get someone to capture the moment too as it makes an amazing photo!
The Tree of Life
If your significant other prefers the tropical vibes of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, nothing screams romance like a proposal under the Tree of Life after dark. As the sun sets, Animal Kingdom comes to life under the beautiful multi coloured lights of the tree’s intricate carvings, providing a romantic setting for your perfect proposal.
Other amazing spots within Animal Kingdom include the floating mountains in Pandora – World of AVATAR and Tusker House, where you may even be able to recruit Mickey or Minnie to help!
One of the most relaxing parks in Orlando is, without a doubt, Discovery Cove. This tranquil beach resort-inspired park would make the perfect spot to pop the question. Whether you choose to ask your significant other while lying on the sandy white beach of the Grand Reef, in a luxury and secluded private cabana or during your once in a lifetime dolphin swim experience, you can almost guarantee a big YES!
