PARIS — Disneyland Paris has announced that it plans to host its first official “Magical Pride” event on June 1 in observance of homosexual and transgender Pride Month.
“Join us for this celebration of pride at the place where dreams come true,” the site Magical Pride states. “Primarily attracting people from the LGBT community and their friends and families, Magical Pride warmly welcomes anyone and everyone. Come and party, play and stay at Disneyland Paris during this unique event—taking place in June 2019.”
While there have been other pride events at the theme park, 2019 marks the first year that the French Disney park will be holding the offering officially. According to Disneyland Paris, the day will include a parade and dance party, and rides will remain open “late into the night.”
“For the first time, Disneyland Paris [is] making Magical Pride an official Disney event—with a Magical Pride party taking place at Walt Disney Studios Park,” the site outlines.
A photo in the online photograph gallery of past observances also shows The Hollywood Tower hotel lit up in rainbow lights.
“Mickey can’t wait to meet guests young and old at the #magicalpride party! We hope he gets a rainbow outfit!” a post on the Instagram page for Magical Pride reads.
“Disneyland Paris … LGBTQ Pride … And one MASSIVE party! I can’t think of a better way to spend the night on 1st June,” another post reads.
