Disney Is Throwing Its First-Ever LGBTQ Pride Celebration This Summer And Twitter Is Going Crazy

The internet broken when The Walt Disney Company announced just before the weekend that this year would be the first time ever that one of the parks would host a massive Pride event to celebrate the LGBTQ community.

TL;DR Disney has officially announced the brand new "Magical Pride" event at Disnetland Paris on June 1, 2019. Twitter reactions and information about the LGBTQ event is below.

Disneyland Paris will be the first of the Disney chain to host the event, which will take place on June 1, 2019 (the first official day of Pride month).

The event, which Disney calls "Magical Pride," will leave the entire park decorated in all the vibrant colours of the rainbow. Although Pride events have been held at the park before, they were all unofficial and never actually affiliated with Disney. That all changes this year, as "Magical Pride" is hosted by official Disney organizers.

Needless to say, Twitter is freaking out. A LOT. Although the consensus seems evenly split on supporting and protesting the new event, the comebacks to those who are anti-Disney Pride are just too good not to share:

Hate to break it to ya bud but Disney’s had a “Gay Day” pride event for over a decade and I’m sure the company that’s worth 98 billion won’t miss your 5k annual passes https://t.co/qpssShPX1W

How does an @Disney Pride event square with their support of @FoxNews?@Disney uses its money to support a propaganda station whose followers do not support LGBTQI Rights but the LGBTQI money is good enough to take.? pic.twitter.com/4wAgkbXBeD
