fireworks announcement to promote gender inclusivity

Disneyland removes ‘boys and girls’ from fireworks announcement to promote gender inclusivity. Unquestionably, Disney is changing with the times. Becoming more inclusive, and being sensitive to all of the guests who go to the parks. With the recent changes to Dress Codes and the “Look” of its Cast members, we can now add Greetings for Fireworks and Shows.

Absolutely, one of the better changes is the new intro to Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom in Disney World. “Ladies and Gentleman, Boy and Girls” has been changed to “Good evening, Dreamers of all ages”. Clearly, it is inclusive and fits in better with the theme of the Magic at the Kingdom.

Importantly, “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.” has been changed at Disneyland’s show Mickey’s Mix Magic. Guests of all ages will be greeted with “Good evening, friends”. Just another sign of the times and Disney adapting to the new age we live in. Disney has been striving to introduce more diversity and inclusivity into its theme parks, workforce, and company culture.

We understand that this change to the fireworks announcement is upsetting to some, and I can guarantee Disney put a good amount of thought into this change. The Disney World update is perfect. It does not hurt anyone’s feelings, it is inclusive to everyone. So, altogether, we can enjoy this change. Who cares if it doesn’t mention Boys and Girls, I take Dreamers of all ages to incorporate everyone! We are all Dreamers when we enter the Magic Kingdom!

As for Disneyland’s change, we are all friends! Right? We are friends of Disney’s, of Mickey Mouse and the gang, of each other! I truly hope we can all figure out how to just be friends, especially at the Happiest Place on Earth.

These changes have not negatively affected Disney in any way. Crowds are up, sales are stronger than they ever have been. In fact, it appears that demand may be up, the year by year numbers are strong. Even with a pandemic shutting things down for 15 months in some cases. Inclusivity is the clear path for Disney and moving forward with the times and adapting.

We understand this topic is going to bring a lot of feelings to the conversation, we just ask that you handle it with respect for each other. Please, if you disagree or agree do not put the others person’s feelings or thoughts down. We live in a country where we can debate these things. So, let us be friends! Also, realize that no matter how much you love or hate this, it is here to stay. Accordingly, for the one guy who will say, Disney, so woke, please think before posting, it is just gonna start a fight. I am not disagreeing with you or agreeing, but it will end with comments being shut off.

Lasers, Music, Action!

Rock your world at Mickey’s Mix Magic, an extravaganza bursting with magical song tracks, kaleidoscopic projections, and exciting lights and lasers guaranteed to electrify your soul!

The scene is set as state-of-the-art projections, lighting, and lasers turn Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, and the façade of “it’s a small world” into dazzling displays of sight, sound, and color.

On select nights, fantastical fireworks will add a pinch more pixie dust to the occasion. Attendees will be catapulted into a fun, family-friendly dance party sure to transform Disneyland Park into one of the greatest celebrations for Mickey and Minnie.
