This year, Disneyland will host its first official Pride Nite to celebrate the LGBTQ+ communityand their allies. Disneyland After Dark: Pride Nite will happen at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California on June 13 and June 15 to coincide with Pride Month.
The new after-hours event starts at a time when Disney is still getting criticized for being inclusive and against Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, which limits speech in public schools about sexual orientation and gender identity. However, it’s not the first time a Disney park has had a Pride event. In 2019, Disneyland Paris Pride started, and every year, Disney creates Pride-themed items.
What Is Disney After Dark: Pride Nite?
Pride Nite is a part of Disney After Dark, a series of events that require a separate admission ticket. It takes place after the theme parks’ regular closing times.
Disney After Dark features a variety of special entertainment options. Meet-and-greets with featured characters, themed music and lighting, and exclusive offerings of food and merchandise are part of the experience. Temporary attractions offer guests the opportunity to capture their experience uniquely and memorably. Guests should bring their own snacks and drinks, as well as a camera to record their memories.
