Disney has apologised to a couple whose marriage proposal was interrupted by a Disneyland Paris employee in a clip that has captured the internet's attention. The couple's story went viral in June after footage of the incident filmed by a bystander was shared on social media. In the clip, the Disneyland Paris employee is seen hastily escorting the couple off a stage mid-proposal after appearing to take the ring from a man on bended knee and gesturing at the pair to leave the stage, located in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle. As the man obeys orders, he tells the employee that his now-fiancée said "yes" to his proposal. The employee responds, "Yes, that's great, but over here, it's going to be even better." In a statement to The New York Times, Disney said they apologised for the incident and want to make things right with the couple involved. "We have offered our sincere apologies to the couple concerned and we will do everything we can to make this up to them," the spokesperson said. In a phone interview with the Times on Monday, 31-year-old Ante of Germany confirmed that Disney has offered him and his fiancée a free weekend at a Disneyland park and hotel of their choice. However, he doesn't plan to accept. "I don't want to visit Disneyland anymore. They can't give us the moment back and that's the only thing I want – to get a second chance," Ante said. "Disneyland stands for dreams," he said to the outlet. "Our moment was destroyed."
