After another successful Disneyland Paris PRIDE party, Disney released an article celebrating the event, cast members and more. Read the full details below…
Pride Month is an opportunity to recognize, celebrate and elevate diverse voices and perspectives from across the LGBTQIA+ community. At Disneyland Paris, this is an important moment in ongoing efforts to place equity and inclusion at the core of everything we do, creating a welcoming environment for guests from all over the world and encouraging our Cast Members to be their authentic selves.
This year – with the return of Disneyland Paris Pride at Walt Disney Studios Park – guests and Cast came together for an unforgettable night featuring live performances by MIKA, Bilal Hassani and Becky Hill, the return of Disney’s Colorful Pride Parade, plus memorable moments with Disney characters and attraction access. The event also included experiential activations with Corporate Alliance partners RhinoShield, Coca-Cola and Deezer for some added fun. Disneyland Paris welcomed invitees from several French LGBTQIA+ associations to experience a day in the parks and to join in Disney’s Colorful Pride Parade that evening, as part of the resort’s commitment to meaningful community engagement.
Disneyland Paris Pride: The Cast Event
The PRIDE cast event returned this year as well, inviting Cast to enjoy an exclusive day of inspiring conversations as teams from across the resort and around the world at Disney shared their experiences and vision for the future. The event ended on a high note with a Cast-only talent show to celebrate diversity at Disneyland Paris. This is just one of many ways throughout the year that we engage with Cast Members on inclusion. Our Disney PRIDE BERG – a business employee resource group made up of Cast from different resort roles – identifies new opportunities to recognize and support the LGBTQIA+ community all year long.
As part of an ongoing dialogue with LGBTQIA+ community members and allies, Disneyland Paris reached out to Cast Members across the resort and invited them to share their unique stories and experiences. The resulting video spotlights a few of the many diverse perspectives represented by our Cast Members and is one of several initiatives to seek out and amplify new voices. We are always striving to create a culture of inclusion, with ideas and contributions from our diverse workforce that help us grow.
