Why Disneyland Is The Perfect Destination To Celebrate Black Music Month This June
June 23, 2022
When the thought of Disneyland comes to mind, the initial impression is often fun, yet long, hot days full of marathon walking, soundtracked by active children and punctuated with long lines and dancing characters. At least that was the direction my mind went.
As a childless adult, I wasn’t sure what a family destination billed as “The Happiest Place on Earth” for youngsters and the young a heart could truly have to offer to keep me entertained for longer than an afternoon. But as I learned while attending their June Black Music Month Celebrate Soulfully event series, there is a slew of fun, food, festivities – and yes, costumed characters – that can keep unattached adults even more entertained than the tiniest of Mouse-fanatics.
In a continuation of their Black History Month initiative, Disneyland is celebrating and highlighting the achievements and contributions of Black creators during the month of June in recognition of Black Music Month. Dubbed Celebrate Soulfully, it’s an opportunity for park-goers to honor Black heritage and culture while enjoying the magic of Disney.
Offerings include daily live entertainment, including the newly-launched Tale of the Lion King show, performed each Thursday through Monday at the Fantasyland Theatre, specialty food, art, and more.
