Share Your Pride at Walt Disney World this month. June is Pride Month, and Disney is showing Pride all month long with various foods, treats, Photopass, and Walls, along with proceeds of all June Pride Merchandise sales going to LGBTQIA+ organizations. Disney has also made the commitment to make Pride a year-long event, and not just 1 month. Take a look at some of the offerings this month.
Beginning today, Disney Parks is celebrating PRIDE Month as part of our commitment to recognize and celebrate the contributions, cultures, and experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community. As part of the PRIDE Business Employee Resource Group (BERG) in Florida, I am excited and proud to share how you, our guests, are invited to Share Your Pride at Walt Disney World Resort.
Share Your Pride
This year, at all four Walt Disney World theme parks, look for all-new incredible, Pride-themed backdrops celebrating love. Each park photo wall is unique, themed to its surroundings, and honors the diversity and pride within the LGBTQIA+ community. EPCOT is my favorite park, so I’m going right to EPCOT to pose in front of that photo wall.
For those who want to do something a little different, Disney PhotoPass Service will have photo props like a rainbow umbrella, Magic Shots, and colorful photo opportunities throughout Walt Disney World, plus new virtual backdrops at the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs.
At Disney Springs, guests will find new décor and photo opportunities in celebration of Pride Month, as well as a new photo opportunity inspired by “Love, Victor” – a Hulu Original Series. This has been one of my favorite shows over the past few years, and I can’t wait for the final season to debut on June 15 on Hulu and Disney+. Don’t miss the Disney Springs Art Walk, which celebrates the work of both local artists and artists from around the globe and currently features a new piece from Chad Mize, a multimedia artist, designer, and muralist.
Locations including T-REX Cafe, Kendra Scott, Kate Spade New York, Coca-Cola Store, and more will also have exciting offerings throughout the month of June. Learn more here about the latest Pride Month offerings at Disney Springs.
No matter what our guests are celebrating, an iconic ear hat has been a Disney tradition since the very beginning. I’ve loved seeing guests of all ages get them embroidered to celebrate all kinds of milestones from “First Visit” to “Just Married.” Beginning this month, we’re introducing new stitching color options to Share Your Pride. These new personalization options will be available year-round and feature the colors of the pride and transgender flags. Personalization options will soon be available at Disney’s Wonderful World of Memories at Disney Springs and other locations throughout Walt Disney World.
