Couple proposes to each other at the same time at Disneyland, and the video goes viral
When you propose to someone, it's supposed to be the happiest day of your life, so why not do it at the happiest place on Earth? And no, I'm not talking about Hooters. I'm talking about Disneyland.
Many romantics drop to one knee in front of Cinderella Castle, and ask their partner if they want to spend the rest of their lives together. (And then they show off their engagement ring while riding Space Mountain!) One man felt so swept up in the magic that he proposed to Minnie Mouse. (And Mickey Mouse's crazy jealous reaction was priceless.) But you know what you don't see too often at Disneyland? A couple proposing to each other at the exact same time.
In March 2016, Kasey Donovan randomly followed Jesse Tober on Twitter because he liked the Blink-182 quote on her bio. ("She makes me feel like it's raining outside," from Story of a Lonely Guy.) Yes, this is seriously how they met. If you're single, and you're looking for love, forget dating apps - put a poignant Blink-182 quote in your Twitter bio! Then just propose with the ring in an avocado, and you will have reach peaked millennial.
Kasey's a freelance writer based in California, and Jesse's a Walgreen's manager who lives in New York. But they didn't the distance keep them apart. In August 2016, Kasey flew to visit Jesse on the East Coast, and they checked out Niagara Falls. For their next trip, Jesse flew to visit Kasey on the West Coast, and they made the trip to Disneyland. "[It was] literally the most magical place on earth," Jesse told Cosmopolitan. "It was so fun and special and there’s nobody else I would have wanted to show it to me."
Both Kasey and Jesse love the House of Mouse. One Halloween, they even dressed up as Flynn Rider and Rapunzel from Tangled. So, you can see how they got the same idea: to propose in front of Cinderella Castle. When Jesse pulled out a ring, her boyfriend laughed, asking "Are you kidding me?"
Shocked, Kasey opened his backpack, and pulled out an Ariel-inspired ring from the Enchanted Jewelry Collection. Now it was Jesse's turn to laugh. "We had no idea either of us were going to do it," she explained. "It was the happiest moment, at the happiest place on Earth." Obviously, they both said yes, and hugged and cried.
The hilarious double proposal was captured on video and went viral on Twitter. "TELL ME WHY WE JUST PROPOSED TO EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME AT OUR FAVORITE PLACE I’M SPEECHLESS," wrote Jesse. It seems crazy, but the event was totally unplanned. "We’re just so in sync as a couple, I'm not surprised this happened," said Jesse. "I don’t know how to explain it, it almost seems normal that we both did this."
Congratulations to the happy couple! And you can probably guess where they want to get married: Hooters! Just kidding. The answer is Disneyland.
