Milwaukee Bucks Brook Lopez proposes to girlfriend at Animal Kingdom

Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Cinderella and Prince Charming. And now, Brook Lopez and Hailee Nicole Strickland.

Thirteen years ago, the Milwaukee Bucks center and Disney fanatic met Strickland at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, according to a news release from Disney.

On Monday — exactly 13 years later — that’s where “Splash Mountain” proposed to her.

Sounds like a love story written by Disney itself.

The couple’s night started off with a “romantic” dinner at Tiffins Restaurant, which is located in Discovery Island at the theme park, the news release said.

The eatery’s kitchen is “inspired by exploration and adventure,” according to its website. How fitting, given that marriage is often referred to as one of life’s greatest adventures.
