It’s the first official Disney event to celebrate the LGBT community, and it’s happening this June at Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris Resort. Magical Pride is the first event aimed primarily at the LGBT community, that is an official Disney event.
Millions of people have celebrated Gay Days and Pride Month at Walt Disney World for years, but none of the events have been officially sanctioned or planned by Disney. The event will be an extra ticketed event, and will not be open to day guests. This is very similar to extra events such as Mickeys Halloween Party, and Christmas Party.
The event will even feature special programs and happenings in the park.
Here’s some of what to expect from the new event:
Tickets are on sale, and more information can found over at the Disneyland Paris website.
This is a huge step for Disney, which has been holding unofficial events for decades. With any luck, this is the start of many more Pride events at Disney Properties across the world, including in Orlando. Theme parks are places where people celebrate all manners of things, from weddings, to graduations, and birthdays. Walt Disney World is one of the top destinations in the world that people go to celebrate these occasions, so why can’t they celebrate this one officially as well? It’s a great first step that we hope more theme parks take, and hopefully the rest of the world as well.
