This February marks the return of Celebrate Soulfully at Disney Parks, honoring Black heritage and culture through music, art and food at Walt Disney World Resort and, for the first time, at Disneyland Resort. This coincides with Black History Month and guests can look for more experiences at Disneyland Resort this year.
As part of Celebrate Soulfully, Disneyland Resort will present “Celebrate Gospel” – a tribute to the rich legacy of Gospel music and a tradition at Disneyland Resort. “Celebrate Gospel” will be held for the first time at Disneyland Park. Award-winning Gospel singer, actor and fashion designer Kierra Sheard will perform on Feb. 19 along with Sacred Groove, and on Feb. 26, Grammy-award winners Jonathan McReynolds and Mali Music take the stage, along with The Singers of Soul. On both weekends, guests also will enjoy performances by Southern California community choirs.
The festive experiences continue at the Downtown Disney District with:
- Live nightly musical performances covering R&B, Gospel, reggae and more
- Saturday afternoon live Gospel music performances
- Chalk murals and art displays from Black artists
- New Orleans-style creole cuisine at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen
Additionally, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will offer live jazz nightly and a special menu at Hearthstone Lounge featuring wines, beers and spirits from Black-owned businesses.
