  • Princess Tiana and Louis (New Orleans Square)
  • Donald Duck and Daisy Duck (Frontierland)

  • Rey (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge)
  • C-3PO (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge)
  • Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse (Fantasyland)

  • Ariel (from the live-action story) (Fantasyland)
  • Anna, Elsa, and Oaken (Fantasyland)
  • Tinker Bell & Friends (Fantasyland)

  • Maleficent (Fantasyland)
  • Evil Queen (Fantasyland)
  • Phastos from “Eternals” (Tomorrowland)
  • America Chavez from “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” (Tomorrowland)

Phastos and America Chavez are notable for being two of Disney’s only confirmed LGBTQIA+ characters. Both have previously appeared in Avengers Campus.

Oaken is popularly considered by fans to be gay because an adult man was seen among his family (although an adult woman was, too). He’s never appeared in an ongoing meet-and-greet at Disney Parks but has appeared at Disneyland Merriest Nites and appears regularly on the Disney Wish as part of Arendelle – A Frozen Dining Adventure.

C-3PO has only ever appeared in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge during Disneyland After Dark: 80s Nite.

As seen in concept art below, Mickey & Friends will appear in special Pride Nite outfits.
