Disneyland Announces Its First Pride Parade


Disney will be hosting its first pride celebration in June at Disneyland Paris.

“Discover the enchantment of Disney with the Sparkle of Pride!” That’s what Disney has said regarding the newest magical event to be added to their parade lineup. This is an incredible show of support to the LGBTQ+ community on Disney’s part. Disneyland truly is a place for all people to go an enjoy, and by establishing this parade they have made clear that everyone is welcome in their parks. That is a statement we can get behind!

Disney has a website and Instagram account dedicated to Magical Pride. Here they post not only photos of the attractions lit with rainbow colors to symbolize their love for LGBTQ+ park goers, but they also feature content from those who have visited the park and enjoyed the celebration. The website is made to help guests plan their stay for Magical Pride, as well as to give background information about the event. The more you read the more exciting this prospect becomes.

The Magical Pride website states that the Magical Pride celebration will occur on June 1st, 2019 and will include:

  • Access to Selected Attractions
  • Disney® Character Meet ‘n’ Greets
  • Magical March of Diversity Parade
  • DJs & Special Live Music Performances
  • Karaoke Theatre Experiences
  • Themed Photo Locations

They also give a host of hotel and additional park stay options to help anyone and everyone plan their stay at the parks. The website even features testimonials from past LGBTQ+ guests about their experience at Disneyland and why others should join in the fun.

We are so excited about the announcement. Take it from the website: “Celebrating diversity at the place where dreams come true, Magical Pride warmly welcomes anyone and everyone to come and party, play and stay at Disneyland® Paris.”
