As part of the Disneyland After Dark events, Disneyland introduced the first Pride Nite to the park during Pride Month in June.
This was a big deal for the LGBTQIA+ community, as it was Disneyland’s first official pride event! Previously, an outside group celebrated Gay Days at Disneyland, and Disneyland recognized that event with special merchandise and food and beverage offerings. Disneyland Paris has also held official events previously, but this was the first official Disney-hosted pride event in the domestic Disney parks.
Now, Disneyland has announced that Pride Nite will be returning in 2024! Keep reading for the 2024 Pride Nite dates.
