Disney’s inaugural Magic Pride captivated the crowds at Disneyland Paris this month. Charlotte Flach speaks to two agents who attended to hear more
Seeing British rock legend Rod Stewart in concert, or joining the party at Disney’s inaugural Magical Pride. That was the dilemma one agent faced when she discovered she had won a golden ticket to celebrate diversity at Disneyland Paris. Luckily for Sam Walton, a partner at Acomb Travel in York, there wasn’t really any contest. “I decided I’d rather miss seeing Rod Stewart than miss Magical Pride!” she says.
For both Walton and fellow winner Kate Marsh, travel advisor at the Tui Colchester store, the magic of Disney was brought to life with music and a vibrant parade at the event earlier this month.
The two agents won tickets to attend Magical Pride on 1 June after entering a competition in TTG, where they were tasked with getting creative by cutting out and decorating Mickey mouse ears.
“I entered because I thought it would be a great chance to be one of the first to experience Magical Pride. I never expected to win,” explains Walton.
Marsh bagged her prize for ears adorned with beading on both the front and back. “As soon as I saw the Magical Pride competition advertised, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my copy of TTG to design and decorate my Pride Mickey ears,” says Marsh.
“I absolutely love Disney and wanted to win to go to Disneyland Paris to experience Magical Pride for myself.”
