On 1 June, Walt Disney Studios Park hosted Magical Pride, an after-hours event that appealed to our LGBTQ audience and their allies. Guests at this private celebration viewed a new parade called the Magical March of Diversity, took photos with some of their favorite Disney characters, and enjoyed several of the park’s world-famous attractions along with food and merchandise offerings themed to the evening. Guests also had the opportunity to enjoy live performances from Years & Years and French singer Corine, along with DJ sets by Boy George and Portuguese duo Sindykatz.
Magical Pride adds to the growing lineup of diverse offerings at Disneyland Paris, which includes fan-focused events such as Electroland and Disney Loves Jazz, and is also a powerful illustration of the resort’s commitment to fostering a welcoming environment for all of its guests. That dedication extends behind the scenes as well — just the day before on 31 May, Disneyland Paris hosted the Magical Pride Conferences, which welcomed several advocates to speak to resort Cast Members on topics of relevance to the LGBTQ community. Disneyland Paris also supports charitable organizations such as Le Refuge, which offers services and temporary shelter to young people facing homophobia or transphobia.
