To kick of Pride Month this year, Disneyland® Paris will be hosting Magical Pride on June 1 in the Walt Disney Studios® Park. For one fun-filled evening, you can turn your dreams into a reality with the magic of Disney and the feeling of pride. While living your best life and shining with the joy of diversity should be convincing enough in itself, we’re here to give you five reasons why you shouldn’t be missing Magical Pride 2019.
A brand new pride parade to attend
Disneyland Paris will be organizing Magical March of Diversity, a new parade-style that will take place in the Walt Disney Studios® Park on the evening of June 1. Magical March of Diversity is a not-to-be-missed moment! Diversity and equality are strong values at Disneyland® Paris, and each year, the park host millions of visitors from diverse backgrounds, nationalities, gender expressions/identities, sexual orientation and abilities. Magical March of Diversity will therefore focus on the important themes of diversity and inclusion.
A great line-up of entertainment
Disneyland® Paris means business when it comes to its line-up of entertainment for Magical Pride. Along with Magical March of Diversity, you can look forward to a massive dance party which will last until 2am. Dance the night away to live performances by Corine and English synth pop band, Years & Years, and let loose to a DJ set by legendary Boy George or by DJs duo Sindykatz. Fans of drag can also rejoice in an entertaining lip-syncing session. Go big or go home for Magical Pride, you’ll need full spirits for this line-up!
Strike a pose...vogue!
There will be many opportunities for meet and greets during Magical Pride, so prepare to snap to your heart’s content as you meet some your childhood heroes in the Walt Disney Studios® Park. But it’s not just your encounters with Mickey Mouse or the Genie of Aladdin which will require you to come dressed to the nines! There will also be themed photo booths, where you can capture your moments of pride for the night with your friends. So be sure to strike your pose and experience your magical pride!
Get your thrills for the night
During Magical Pride, you will also have access to selected attractions especially opened for the occasion in Walt Disney Studios® Park. In between dance sessions to live performers and photo taking opportunities with Disney Characters, experience your pride at dizzying heights with access to the following attractions: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Ratatouille: The Adventure, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith, Crush's Coaster©, and RC Racer. What better way to enjoy a pride with friends and loved ones than by experiencing some adrenaline-inducing thrills for the night? We told you this would be a different kind of Pride.
The chance to visit the City of Light
While a visit to Disneyland® Paris should be enchanting enough, its location close to Paris is arguably the icing on the cake. Elected as Europe’s most gay welcoming city by misterb&b back in 2018, the City of Light will charm you with its beautiful architecture, its robust food culture, and of course its lively gay scene. Explore the city’s charming gayborhood, Le Marais, and mingle with locals in the quarter’s many gay bars and clubs. If that’s not enough to woo you, Paris’ summer vibe surely will. As the sun comes out, the locals come out to play in the warm weather by the river or in many of the city’s parks.
