This Man Proposed to His Boyfriend With a Disney Flash Mob, Proving Disney Really Is Where Magic Happens


This isn’t technically the happiest place on earth, but it might as well be.

Three years ago, Patrick Santos met his boyfriend, Gavin Hatch, at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. So it was only fitting that Patrick lured Gavin back to that very same spot for a big surprise.

Gavin thought he was meeting up with some friends for drinks, but instantly realized something else was going on.


“Gavin, this very moment is the start of our new adventure together,” a letter his friends hand to him reads. “You always talked about being in love like in the movies. However, all the best love stories have one thing in common: You have to go against all odds to get there.”

Gavin starts getting emotional and this isn’t even the most emotional part!

Now, all that was left to do was get down on one knee and pop the question.


To find out if Gavin said yes -- spoiler alert: he says yes -- watch the whole video. But really, just watch it for the amazing dance routine:

(P.S. Patrick says he spent four months planning the proposal, but how long did he spend editing this video? Because that is almost as impressive as the engagement itself.)
