Alexa and Matthew
How We Met
I met my Matt in January of 2015 during our internships at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. We were neighbors at our apartment complex and became great friends right away. Our first date involved Disney, of course, due to our love for the company. It has been the bond we have shared from the beginning. Fast forward to the end of our internships, we both moved back home (Me to Michigan and Matt to Indiana) and we dated long distance for a year before moving down to Florida together in the fall of 2016. We’ve been living in the Orlando area ever since, loving life and experiencing it together.

How He Asked
On September 29th, 2018 we took a trip to Disneyland in California. We started our first day at Disney California Adventure and headed to Cars Land right as the park opened. Within 20 minutes of being at the park, Matt suggested we take a picture in Cars Land with the scenery and themed decorations in the background. After a couple of posed pictures, he dropped down on one knee and popped the question.
Thanks to an amazing Cast Member, we got around 50 pictures of the proposal from beginning to end. It was a day that neither of us will ever, ever forget, and we continued the celebration during the next few days that we spent in California. The proposal was perfect, and it was “us” in every way possible.
