Disneyland Paris Pride (Magical Pride) – What You Need to Know

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Disneyland Paris for their annual Disneyland Paris Pride (Magical Pride) event.

In 2024, Disneyland Paris Pride is scheduled for the 15th of June. However, tickets are not yet on sale.

If, like me, you love Disney and are a member or ally of the LGBTQIA+ community, then this unique, inclusive event is well worth attending.

Disneyland Paris Pride takes place at Walt Disney Studios (one of the two Disneyland Paris theme parks) and runs from 8:00pm until 2:00am.

This is a ticketed event, and in 2022, tickets cost £79 per person. I bought my Disneyland Paris and Disneyland Paris Pride tickets from AttractionTix. Note that tickets for Disneyland Paris are not required to buy Disneyland Paris Pride tickets.

The Disneyland Paris Pride event includes:

  • Live Music
  • Access to Walt Disney Studios Rides & Attractions
  • Exclusive Character Meet & Greet opportunities

I attended Disneyland Paris Pride with my wife and our son Oliver, who was six months old at the time. Side note: If you have kids, the only thing I’d worry about when it comes to DLP Pride is how late the event runs. 

Since our son was asleep in his pushchair for the majority of the event, we stayed away from the live music. The line-up for 2024 is yet to be announced; however, past notable acts have included:

  • Mika
  • Becky Hill
  • Callum Scott

Instead, we spent most of our time at Disneyland Paris Pride, taking turns going on rides and meeting characters.

The wait time for rides was impressive. I waited no more than 10 minutes for any ride inside the theme park. Earlier that day, wait times for popular rides inside the park often hovered between 30 – 40 minutes.

Unfortunately, aside from the parade at the start of the night, it wasn’t possible to take a photo with any of the characters in Pride outfits. I think this was a missed opportunity, and I hope to see this at future DLP Pride events.

That said, there were several rare character meet-and-greet opportunities. These included:

  • Edgar from Aristocats
  • Remy from Ratatouille
  • Marie from Aristocats

In contrast to the wait time for rides, waiting for character meet-and-greets took around 20 to 30 minutes. It’s also worth noting that the meet-and-greet areas are outside, and it’s dark, which means the lighting is also wasn’t the best.

There was no exclusive Disneyland Paris Pride merchandise available at the event. 

Instead, the only exclusive item was the Disneyland Paris rainbow spirit jersey. However, this was available at the Walt Disney Studios theme park before Disneyland Paris Pride.

There was also other Disney Pride merchandise sold at Walt Disney Studios. However, this Disney Pride merch was also available at other Disney theme parks worldwide and online.
