Disney will be hosting its first-ever official pride event, ‘Magical Pride,’ to celebrate the LGBTQ community! The event will kick off Pride month on Saturday (June 1) at Disneyland Paris.
“Dress like a dream, feel fabulous and experience Walt Disney Studios Park like never before – loud, proud and alive with all the colours of the rainbow,” reads Disneyland Paris’ official website.
A ‘Magical Pride’ organizer told CBS News that although there have been unofficial events that have taken place at the park, this will be the first official pride event organized by Disney. Some of the activities at ‘Magical Pride’ will include a brand new parade along the streets of Walt Disney Studios Park with a vibrant Pride atmosphere, a dance party, Disney characters, and many more “magical surprises.”

A Disney spokesperson told HuffingtonPost that Disney offers a wide range of merchandise items that appeal to guests of diverse backgrounds. The company is certainly taking the steps necessary to be inclusive to all, which is amazing.
