Percussion, strings, winds… and a proposal! Full House actor John Stamos certainly scored points by proposing to girlfriend Caitlin McHugh in the Happiest Place on Earth, but he even went the extra step by popping the question with an adorable custom video animated by Pixar and Disney films.

While the clip has yet to be revealed, McHugh shared a snippet of the last scene on Monday, October 23—an animation of Sebastian from The Little Mermaid holding a sign that reads, “Just Ask the Girl.”

In the photo, the future bride and groom share a sweet kiss in the private room channeling their inner Ariel and Prince Eric from the beloved Disney movie. “I kissed the boy and said…yes!” McHugh added. “That’s what you do when the sweetest, most romantic Prince Charming treats you like a princess and asks you to be his.”

Stamos announced the news of his engagement late Sunday, October 22, sharing a cartoon of himself kissing McHugh in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland. The actor’s rep later revealed that Stamos conjured up a romantic concept to create a personalized video designed by the studios. The couple subsequently celebrated their new engagement with both sides of the family at 21 Royal.

“I asked … she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after,” Stamos wrote at the time.

I asked…she said yes! …And we lived happily ever after💍
