There are various sites that list the types of Magic Shots and the locations. Some can be taken anywhere but others just in specific spots. (ie) Jiminy Cricket can't have a green background so you could find this shot along the path behind the Tree of Life vs in front. There's also special occasion's that they can flag your photos for so later you have more options with boarders.
If there's a favourite character perhaps you would tell your group that you're asking the PhotoPass Photographer for the magic shot / animated magic shot.
Some will do a butterfly magic shot...you could tell the family that you want to surprise her with that shot and they need to bring flowers (maybe some beautiful silk roses?)
i would like you to know that i'm still thinking about this. the whole 'involve two kids and an adult who don't know about it' part is challenging. i agree with many of the scavenger hunt recommendations.
Whatever you do be sure and incorporate the Disney Memory Maker photographers in the plans and be sure and go up to them prior to the proposal to whisper what you are doing so they can capture the moments on film for you.

How about a semi private proposal with only the family and a captain with you. Maybe a fireworks cruise then everyone is captive. You don't have a chance of someone in your party missing the proposal with a bathroom break or a walking into a nearby shop.
First off this is very exciting and really something that has to be planned out. I have seen so many photos of proposals in front of the Castle and as great as that is I think something more unique would be more special. Don't know if she has a special ride that you could actually pop the question while riding it with her. Of course if her favorite ride is Space Mountain or The Rock N Roller Coaster this would not work. Also along those lines if somehow you could get a CM who works in a ride such as The Tower Of Terror person who leads you into the Pre Room to make an announcement or something like that. Also a special dinner where the engagement ring can be planned out to be brought out on a plate with the words, "Will You Marry Me" on it in some sort of sauce. As you can see I have given this some sort of thought as I have dreamed that my girlfriend would do this for me even though she doesn't get into Disney like I do so the chances of it happening are slim to none. Either way you do the proposal it will go down as one of the most special memories in your life. Good Luck and Congrats.
