It was indeed a magical moment
The 43-year-old actress, who proposed to partner Ramona Agrum at the amusement park in California, claimed she was forced to leave after violating the guidelines.
When Disney CEO Bob Iger gave his approval for her to pop the question at the resort, she thanked him for allowing her to do so.
In an interview with The Daily Show, she admitted: “I did get banned from Disneyland for 30 days because I snapped a photo inside a secret bathroom, which is against the law at Disneyland.”
Rebel acknowledged that the management at Disneyland tailored the penalty to fit her schedule in order to minimize her time away from the amusement park.
She continued: ‘I got formally banned for 30 days. “Rebel, what 30 days did you not want to come to Disneyland because you are abroad filming a movie or something?” they phoned me and asked.
I responded, “Well, yeah, June would be good,” she joked.
In addition to hinting at the possibility of “hidden restrooms,” the actress disclosed that “adult gangs” reside at the theme park.
The group, Rebel continued, “have cool names like the White Rabbits and the Children of Thanos and Coco Locos,” as she revealed more inside information.
They “go around and perform gang activities around Disneyland while wearing matching vests,” she alleged.
‘One of the initiations was you had to steal the apple from the Snow White ride, and the apple continued getting stolen so many times that had to make it a hologram.
But don’t ask me how I learned about the Disneyland gangs—I won’t tell you, she joked.
As it turns out, Rebel praised Disney CEO Bob Iger in her Instagram post when she announced her engagement to Ramona.
She proposed to Agruma at the Disneyland resort in Anaheim, California, though she admitted in the episode that she had really contacted Iger to get special permission to propose there.
According to Wilson, who said that Disneyland was “the most wonderful proposal venue on Earth,” “He’s the big, big boss and I thought, “Well, if he says yes, then it was meant to be, and I was meant to propose that day at Disneyland.”
It was “very, very lovely,” she continued, “and I had to get special clearance to get a particular area cordoned off and get the topiary trees in. You know, I had a violinist playing like Disney classics.
“She answered yes. Then I thought, “I may as well,” so I got down on one knee,” Wilson recalled. “Should I get down on one knee? What do I do?” Wilson added.
Wilson replied, as Drew remarked, “because she’s a giving not a taker,” adding, “And then she was like, “What are you doing?” and goes, “Well, you can’t be the only one on your knee,” so she knelt down as well.”
She answered sure, and after that I was like, “OK, wonderful!” Wilson said that it was simply stunning.
Wilson claimed that she was “so overwhelmed” by the experience that she required some time to collect herself after riding a brand-new ride at Disneyland.
