Magical Pride Experience

Lifestyle Blogger, Skirmantas Petraitis, teamed up with OutSavvy to experience the 2nd annual Magical Pride weekend at Disneyland® Paris in October 2016. Magical Pride is run by the tour operator Greatdays and Manchester Pride.

On a chilly Thursday morning, I met up with OutSavvy at Searcy’s in St. Pancras International station to plan our Magical Pride weekend

We took the Eurostar train to Disneyland® Paris, then a shuttle bus to Hotel New York. Luckily, the hotel was moments away from Disney® Village. Welcome drinks and dinner took place at Planet Hollywood, where we feasted on a 3-course dinner and drinks.

According to Manchester Pride, 2016’s event brought together twice as many people than the previous year. It was lovely to see LGBT+ communities from all over the country getting together to celebrate love and tolerance. Disney-themed quiz and more drinks were on the cards after dinner.

The next morning, after our super filling breakfast of copious amounts of pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, (Hotel New York is definitely taking the whole New York theme very seriously and it made me feel very nostalgic for “the Big Apple”), we shimmied our way to Disneyland® Paris theme park. With the 2-hour VIP pass, it was surprisingly easy to get on most rides without long queues. We were done in 3-4 hours. Exciting times!

On day 3, we toured around Disney® Studios with guys from Magical Pride. I screamed my lungs out as I plunged 13-floors up and down in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ ride!

Disney-themed karaoke night hosted by Planet Hollywood kept everyone entertained until late hours on Saturday. That was the perfect ending to a truly magical weekend.

Magical Pride 2017 is taking place between Thursday 19th and Sunday 22nd October.
