“Let’s go all in on demolition”: Disney Pride collection 2023 at parks sparks outrage online 

With its 2023 Pride collection, murals, and other decorations at its theme parks, Disney has gone all out to reign over Pride Month. Needless to say, conservatives are not happy about it, as they have not backed away from the ongoing cultural war against the LGBTQIA+ community and have denounced the entertainment conglomerate for going "woke."

Even though Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis had a bitter encounter with the company after it spoke out against his “don’t say gay” law, the theme parks at Orlando, Florida’s Walt Disney World, have been all decked up and ready to celebrate Pride month.

Disney goes all in on LGBTQ+ Pride messaging at their theme parks

At the Epcot theme park, which is a human innovation and cultural center, near the Connections Café, a Pride wall has been painted featuring all the colors of Pride and “LOVE” written on it. At ShopDisney, the company has officially launched its collection of Pride merchandise, including Pride t-shirts, Mickey Mouse headbands, mini backpacks, and everything in vibrant rainbow colors and patterns.

Popular anti-woke Twitter page "End Wokeness" shared images of the Pride merch and the Epcot Pride mural, sparking outrage. One user, @ZadokQ1, called for the demolition of the theme parks and the merch.

The online furor over Disney's 2023 Pride collection

Right-wingers have once again attacked the company for its open advocacy for the LGBTQIA+ community. Some said that the company is going to go broke soon since they are imposing their LGBTQIA+ campaigns on children. A few others also wrote that they stopped going to the theme parks long ago.

Some also said they were done with the company and would never engage with it. Several conservatives encouraged others to cancel their subscriptions to Disney's OTT platforms.

@EndWokeness Had enough of Disney. Thousands spent there. DONE
@EndWokeness Disney hurts when we cancel our subscriptions to Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN. It's an immediate action you can take right now and tell your family and friends. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
@EndWokeness Stopped going there years ago, so who really cares.
@EndWokeness And @Disney I’m going to avoid anything Disney.
@EndWokeness Dump Disney - Boycott Disney!!
@EndWokeness ‘Disney - the grooming company’

Keep digging the hole deeper Disney.

And we are All In for not spending one cent or one minute on any Disney indoctrination and actively educating our friends and family members to do the same.
@EndWokeness I'm happy to say that I've never been to one and I'll never go. Neither will any in my household. 🥰
@EndWokeness It breaks my heart that i cant take my kids to disney anymore
@EndWokeness Add Disney to the boycott list and see how they like the “Target” treatment. There’s nothing magical about the place anymore.

Disney's 2023 Pride ventures

On the company's online store, it was noted that its Pride collection was created by the members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. The conglomerate proudly works with nonprofit organizations throughout the year to support the community globally.

The goal of the Pride collection was to raise awareness of LGBTQIA+ rights and Pride Month. The online store has a wide selection of merchandise featuring Mickey and his friends in colorful rainbow decorations.
