How To Pull Off the Perfect Engagement at Callaway

Here at Callaway, we’ve seen more than a few spectacular proposals, but there’s something about a Fantasy In Lights proposal that gets us every time! Whether it’s at the Twin Trees or in Snowflake Valley, nothing is sweeter than sharing this moment under a million dazzling lights. From setting a date, to setting the scene, we have you covered with our six tips to a “Fantasy In Lights Proposal.”

Plan Ahead 

Consult with our wonderful Magical Moment Mastermind, Madi. She will help coordinate every special detail of your proposal from start to finish! For more information please email

Consider A Weeknight 

Weeknights are generally less busy than weekends. Planning your engagement on a less popular evening will make the atmosphere feel more intimate, allowing for more special moments and photo opportunities.

Set the Scene 

With 15 dazzling scenes to choose from, you cannot go wrong! Callaway offers a variety of light scenes throughout our show that make perfect photo opportunities.

Include Family

Plan to visit The Gardens Restaurant with everyone before your ticket time, or make merry in Christmas Village with wall-t0-wall Christmas wonders. No matter the size of your family, we can accommodate!

Reserve Your Table

Make it a Getaway
