Disneyland Will Host First Ever Official Pride Nite – Dates, Details, Prices
As part of the Disneyland after Dark events, Disneyland will introduce the first Pride Nite to the park during Pride Month in June!
This is a big deal for the LGBTQIA+ community, as it is Disneyland’s first official pride event. Previously, an outside group has 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 is the first official Disney-hosted pride event in the domestic Disney parks.
The event also comes as Disney is embroiled in an ongoing fight with Florida Governor Ron Desantis over the controlling body of Walt Disney World, which began when Disney took a stance against the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
Disneyland’s Pride Nite: What to Expect
Pride Nite at Disneyland has an exciting lineup, and the celebrations will take place on June 13 and June 15, 2023. These will begin with a three hour mix-in from 6pm-9pm, where guests can explore the park. The party starts at 9pm and runs until 1am, and guests will be able to ride attractions after-hours.
