Amidst the enchantment of Disneyland, a man's heartfelt proposal to his boyfriend transforms into an unexpected double proposal.
Proposals hold a special place in the hearts of couples as they mark the pivotal moment for the rest of their lives together. Most proposals culminate with shared dreams, countless memories and a deep connection. Many tend to be a surprise for one person in the relationship, but in some cases, it becomes even more special when it's a double proposal. For Samuel Bishop Marcias and Javier López, that was exactly the case as both coincidentally decided to propose while visiting Disneyland.

López—who goes by @drjavlopez on TikTok—has now gained over 32.9K views on the platform with over 315 comments. At the beginning of the video, we get to see López go down on one knee in front of the castle from Sleeping Beauty. His partner, Marcias, is overwhelmed as he realizes that they are double proposing. We get to see tears of joy as he nods his head and opens his satchel to reveal the ring he brought, after which he too goes down on one knee.
The duo look at each other and agree to get married with a small kiss and then embrace. They exchange rings and pose for a photo in front of the beautiful structure that stands behind them. People on the social media site loved the wholesome proposal and chimed in with their support in the comments section. @gilded..unicorn commented on their dynamic saying, "This is so sweet and a testament to how in sync y'all are. Wishing you all the happiness!"
@kensington25 commented, "This is so beautiful. My heart of ice melted in tears of joy for you both. Many congratulations and may you have many years of joy and love." @larrendale said, "Just beautiful! So happy for you both. Wishing you many years of happiness together!" Disneyland seems to be a favorite amongst couples for proposing owing to its ambiance.
Two other individuals who were also in Disneyland coincidentally double-proposed sometime back. Mac—who goes by @herecomesmac on TikTok—was prepared to propose to their boyfriend. Unbeknownst to them, their boyfriend has also been planning to propose to them on their Disneyland trip. The video posted by Mac has an overlay text reading, "I went to propose to my boyfriend when this happened."
The video has gone viral, accumulating over 2.9 million likes on the platform. It is captioned, "What can I say? We share one brain cell. Now, we share more! (and have a partner reveal! He's a fairly private person, which is why he hasn't popped up in my TikTok yet. I can no longer call him my boyfriend)." Mac created a follow-up video where they both showed off their rings, a white gold ring and a sterling silver ring.
They say, "That was day one of our vacation. Today is day 2. We are at Hollywood Studios. Thank you for all of the love and it has been wild." They add, "People have been reaching out about it. A lot of you have followed me over it, so thank you." People loved the wholesome proposal. @amy.lou.freebush said, "That was seriously the cutest thing I have ever freaking seen."
