Disneyland Paris employee ruins marriage proposal

Disneyland Paris apologized after an overzealous employee interrupted a marriage proposal at the amusement park.

Fans weren’t thrilled with the “happiest place on earth” after a viral video showed the worker yanking a box of diamond ring from a man’s hands while still on one knee and asking the question.

Dressed all in white, the man is seen kneeling on a raised platform in front of a large crowd, which can be heard loudly in front of the couple. The woman, in a blue dress, covers her mouth in disbelief, overcome with emotion.

Suddenly, a Mickey Mouse-eared park worker rushes onto the stage, grabs the ring from the man’s hands, then rushes down the stairs to urge the couple to come down. The stunned couple look at the man before following him.

“She said ‘yes’,” the confused man tells the employee.

“Yeah, that’s great,” the buzzkill worker replies, “but it’ll be even better here,” signaling the girl to come down.

“Trying to find out if dude was happier enforcing rules or screwing up” [the] moment. He was justifiably happier because he ruined the moment,” wrote another.

Another said: “If a stranger ran up to me and snatched a diamond ring from my hand, more than the moment would be ruined.”

Disney said the park has apologized to the couple for the interruption.

“We regret the way this has been handled,” a Disney spokesperson told Newsweek. “We have apologized to the couple involved and offered to make it right.”
