Jonas - Planning to propose to my bf during our first visit. Not really looking for the traditional fairytale or romantic proposal. Maybe something more offbeat, funny, or even slightly nerdy. Any suggestions? Staying at Wilderness Lodge 8 nights with

Congratulations. I remember hearing the news of your planned engagement from fellow panelist Kaylene. Sounds like your plans have evolved from a Citricos or a fireworks proposal. Here are some more out of the ordinary ideas:
Have a favorite song? Visit the piano show at Jellyrolls on Disney's BoardWalk and plan a musical proposal. Contact a manager at (407) 560-8770 who can help "orchestrate" your idea.
Have a favorite ride? Then propose on your favorite ride. I'm a huge Pirates of the Caribbean fan. Consider making appointments at the Pirate's League, dressing up as a Pirate, and popping the question.
Have a favorite Epcot country? Think about asking the big question at your favorite country in Epcot's World Showcase. Dress up for the proposal with clothes and accessories from the country sold at the gift shops located at each country.
If you need help executing any of your ideas, I would contact the Dream Makers at Disney Floral and Gifts. The Dream Makers can do just about anything and can help add some extra magic to your proposal.
Another idea is checking out giftsofalifetime.com. They are pricey, but specialize in arranging special surprises and proposals in the parks.
If your mind veers back to a more traditional proposal, take a look at Disney Parks Blog Top

Good luck, Casey. Please let me know how it goes, I'm rooting for you.
