Magical Pride to form part of wider Disney Pride celebrations for the first time

By Ross Semple


Greatdays Holidays and Manchester Pride get Magical once again for another enchanted lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) weekend at Magical Pride at Disneyland Paris from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd October – during the park’s 25th anniversary.

Greatdays Holidays and Manchester Pride are inviting families, friends, couples and Disney fans on a three-night Disney extravaganza combining the magic of Disneyland Paris with the sparkle of Manchester Pride.

Magical Pride offers holiday-makers a unique chance to party, play and stay at Disneyland Paris from Thursday 19th – Sunday 22nd October 2017.

And this year’s trip will be even more magical than ever before as Disney announce new events including a huge party which for one night only will see LGBT guests from across Europe join together at Walt Disney Studios Park.

Whilst primarily attracting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) groups and couples and families with or without same-sex parents, Magical Pride warmly welcomes anyone and everyone to enjoy the last official Manchester Pride event of the calendar year at where else, but where dreams come true, Disneyland Paris!

This special package includes:

  • three nights’ bed & breakfast at a choice of Disney Hotels
  • a two-day park hopper ticket for both the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park
  • a three course Welcome Dinner at Planet Hollywood in Disney Village and the chance to party with the other Magical Pride guests each evening
  • lunch at Earl of Sandwich
  • PLUS access to Disney’s ALL NEW Exclusive LGBT Party on Friday 20th October

The exclusive party in the Walt Disney Studios Park on Friday 20th October will be part of a wider Disney Pride offering which will see guests from across Europe visiting the park. It will be privatized between 9pm and 1am during which time guests will have access to three of the most popular attractions: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith, and Crush’s Coaster. There will also be entertainment, appearances from Disney Characters, a cash bar and the chance to dance the night away with a DJ playing the tunes.

Plus Disneyland Paris’ 25th anniversary is a huge milestone and will see the introduction of dazzling new shows, a new parade and more!

Andy Beard, Managing Director of Greatdays Holidays said; “As one of the leading group travel tour operators in the UK and with over 30 years in the industry, Greatdays Travel Group is always looking for innovative ways to offer even more choice in travel. Calls for LGBT travel have grown considerably over the past 20 years. With this market comes a great sense of pride and community and these values influenced the creation of the event that is now known as Magical Pride!

“The Manchester Pride Festival is one of the leading LGBT events, its reputation for raising money and awareness for LGBT people is unrivalled. This makes them the perfect partner in bringing Magical Pride to life and creating a truly magical experience for our guests.”

Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive of Manchester Pride, said: “Magical Pride is such a unique experience that we are delighted to partner with Greatdays to deliver. I saw this for myself when I attended last year and can testify that it is four days packed with fun and Disney magic that anyone would love.

“What’s more for such an iconic organisation as Disney to hold their own LGBT Pride party is wonderful to see. It will be an honour for our guests to join with other LGBT Disney fans from across Europe to celebrate together in such a special location.”

Magical Pride packages are exclusively available through Greatdays Travel Group, starting from only £249 per person. With an enthusiastic team who dedicate themselves to all things Disneyland Paris, guests will receive exceptional customer service from the moment of booking right through to being at the event where Magical Pride representatives will be on hand to ensure all goes smoothly and everybody has a memorable time.

Taking place in a land Where Dreams Come True, the sky is the limit for Magical Pride!
