How You Can Celebrate Women’s History Month at Walt Disney World

Every March, we celebrate the contributions that women have given to the world over the years. Many companies have become the successes they are because of the women who work there, including Disney. Since the inception of The Walt Disney Company, women have been a part of nearly every aspect of the company, from artists to Imagineers, lawyers, and more.

Disney is also known for creating strong female role models, including Mulan and Merida from the 2012 film BraveIn the past, Disney princesses have not always been considered strong, independent women, but that has changed over the years. Disney is now dedicated to celebrating “HER story”  and will be doing so all month at Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney Parks Blog shared more information on all of the ways you can celebrate this special month. Let’s take a look!

Disney Springs

Every Friday and Saturday, Disney Springs will feature a female DJ on the Waterside Stage. The DJ will lead a Disney sing-along, which will showcase a number of songs from iconic female Disney characters. Female performers will also be featured almost nightly on the same stage.

EPCOT

This Disney Park will have two incredible displays, both featuring female trailblazers. Here is more information on when and where you can check them out.

  • “Rally of the Gazelles (Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc)” is an immersive vignette found in the Morocco pavilion. It highlights the country’s all-female off-road race, where navigation skills, determination and teamwork mean the difference between getting ahead and going off-course.
  • “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art” is an exhibit found in the American Adventure pavilion. It showcases authentic, historical Native artifacts alongside contemporary works of American Indian art, demonstrating examples of cultural traditions which have been handed down through generations. Among the featured artists with works on display are fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), noted doll-maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan) and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family of Montana.

That’s a lot of ways to celebrate incredible women this month. But that’s not all! Disney also shared that more events, like fitness events and special events featuring female entrepreneurs, will be coming later this month.
