Everybody loves a good proposal story – and this one doesn't disappoint. It's got everything: romance, drama...and some damn perfect timing.

During a trip to Disney World in March 2013, Patrick De Nicola popped the question on Splash Mountain. The pic snapped the perfectly timed moment and we can't get enough of it.

Patrick described how he and his now wife are huge Disney fans, explaining, "She knew that I had bought a ring, so the only thing I had left was the element of surprise." He added, "I knew what her favorite ride was, and I knew that the last place she would expect me to pop the question was the drop...The Disney Cast Members helped with everything. It was perfect."

His wife Annie wrote about the magical moment in a blog post for Magical Day Weddings, explaining: "Right as we ascended to the top of the big drop, Patrick got all giggly and took the ring box out of his pocket, and asked me to marry him just before we dropped!"

She added, "He had timed it perfectly – the photo snapped and got my reaction of laughing, crying, while also getting soaked. I said 'Yes, of course!' when we reached the bottom and put on my beautiful ring."

And guess where they got married? Disney World, of course!
My wife and I have always been huge Disney fans. We both grew up going every year. She knew that I had bought a ring, so the only thing I had left was the element of surprise. I knew what her favorite ride was, and I knew that the last place she would expect me to pop the question was the drop... The Disney Cast Members helped with everything. It was perfect.
