Galaxy’s Edge is one of Disney’s most beloved lands in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Park. Being that I am a huge Star Wars nerd, I couldn’t help but spread this amazing Disney engagement story to everyone, that happened right inside the Millennium Falcon located in Batuu!

Over the last few weeks, I have been catching up on some touching stories on Instagram and follow a popular hashtag called Magical Moments Mondays, celebrating the Cast Members who bring magic inside Walt Disney World.

I came upon this Star Wars engagement story that Cast Member LJ and WDW Ambassador shared on their Instagram stories stating “Recently, my fellow Cast Members and I were able to help stage and celebrate the engagement of a very special Star Wars-loving couple.”

The Cast Members let the couple know that Hondo had sent them on a special mission to find new recruits which they proceeded to a special and intimate tour through Docking Bay Five and a meeting with Hondo Ohnaka himself.

While inside the Millennium Falcon, next to the cargo hold, Gio got down on his knees and popped the question. Not only did the Cast Members pull off an incredible proposal for the couple, but they also showered them with an engagement photoshoot around the ship. They even got to capture a photo in the same place where Han Solo and Princess Leia first kissed, in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back.

Afterward, the couple enjoyed being the pilot and co-pilot and completed Hondo’s mission aboard the Millennium Falcon! Here on Instagram, @wdw.ambassdor shares,
