Cast Member created an unforgettable Star Wars proposal on Smugglers Run. Batuu is the fictional planet where Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is in Hollywood Studios. Many people call it one of the most well-themed and beautifully created lands at any Disney Park. Furthermore, it is home to some of the best rides, moreover some of the best spots to take photos. It has become the best spot to propose marriage, if you are a star wars geek, like ourselves.
A recent post shared by Walt DIsney World Cast and Community on their Facebook page sets out the story of how the Cast members at Smuggler’s Run on Batuu, helped one such couple with a marriage proposal for the ages. They shared the story as part of #MagicalMomentMonday. You can see the whole post below.
The Cast member had found out the engagement of the couple was about to happen. The Cast member told this couple that Hondo has a special mission for them both, to find new recruits. The Love-Porgs were brought on a special tour of Docking Bay 5, for a meeting face to face with Hondo inside the Millennium Falcon. They were able to have a truly wonderful experience of being inside the ship alone for a few moments.
Just to add my 2 cents here, I want to thank my husband for never proposing to me this way! I don’t care if Smuggler’s Run or Batuu did not exist at that time. He should have thought of it, built it, found a Cast member, and made it happen. If he loved me he would have! I am kidding of course, but seriously my love of the Millennium Falcon and Han and Chewie knows no bounds. I may be a bit jealous. Anyway, I digress. Back to our lovely couple.
The magic moment happened when they reached the Cargo hold, inside the ship, and he got down on one knee and popped the question. To his now new fiance! As the couple was sharing this amazing moment, the Disney Cast members were able to treat the new couple to a small Photoshoot inside the Falcon and many of the film’s epic moment scenes. Especially, where Han and Laia share that first Iconic Kiss. Finally, the couple had to fulfill their end of the bargain and help Hondo with his mission. This lucky couple became Pilot and Co-Pilot for the first time and helped complete the Mission.
Congratulations to the new couple! Also, a big hug to the Cast members who were able to pull this off. DIsney is the home of Magical Moments, and truly one of the reasons we always come back to the parks. We love you Cast Members!
