  • Marc Rubin, from New York, is suing Disney World for ruining his proposal plans

A New York man is suing Disney World for ruining his marriage proposal after he got into a fight with a female worker moments before he popped the question.

Marc Rubin, who was arrested after the altercation in 2015, is now bringing legal action against the theme park, claiming he never touched the employee.

The 57-year-old was scouting out a location in front of Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom to propose to his future wife three years ago.

When a Disney employee, 24, asked him to move back from the park’s parade route, an argument broke out between the two.  

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the employee told police that Rubin screamed and grabbed her.

A park manager also claimed Rubin argued and grabbed him as well. The Long Island man denies both incidents.

With his proposal ruined, Rubin was taken to the park’s security office and was later arrested by the local sheriff.

He pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and was fined $100 plus court costs.

Rubin is suing Disney for negligence and claims the park did not release its surveillance video because it proved he didn’t touch the employees.

A Disney spokesperson told MailOnline:

‘The safety of the people who work in and visit our parks is very important to us. We will respond to the allegations as appropriate in court.’
