Greatdays Holidays and Manchester Pride are inviting Disney fans on a Parisian weekend adventure, combining the magic of Disneyland Paris with the sparkle of Manchester Pride.

Magical Pride offers a three-night Disney extravaganza where holiday-makers can party, play and stay at Disneyland Paris from Thursday 13 October – Sunday 16 October 2016. The package includes three nights bed & breakfast, a two-day park hopper ticket for both the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, breakfast with the Disney Characters, a three course dinner at Planet Hollywood in Disney Village, lunch at Earl of Sandwich and the chance to party with the other Magical Pride guests each evening.

Whilst primarily attracting LGBT groups, couples and families with or without same-sex parents, Magical Pride welcomes anyone and everyone to enjoy the four-day event at Disneyland Paris; its family-friendly atmosphere provides a safe and fun environment for everybody visiting.

‘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,’ says Andy Beard from Greatdays Holidays. ‘Calls for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (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!

‘As one of the leading Pride Festivals in the UK and having a renowned reputation for helping the LGBT community, Manchester Pride was the first choice in helping Magical Pride to get off the ground – it is this partnership that has turned the idea from being a great idea into a magical reality.’

Magical Pride packages are exclusively available through Greatdays Travel Group, starting from only £199 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.

Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive of Manchester Pride, says, ‘We’ve teamed up with Greatdays Holidays to offer yet another unforgettable weekend of excitement and exhilaration. Magical Pride offers a really unique experience for anyone who loves a little bit of Disney magic!’
