One Magical Weekend 2025

Sheraton Lake Buena Vista

For the first time, One Magical Weekend and Bear Jamboree are moving their event date! In honor of WorldPride 2025 being held in Washington, DC on the first Saturday in June, One Magical Weekend and Orlando Bear Pride Presents Bear Jamboree are officially moving their events to Thursday, May 29, 2025 through Monday June 2, 2025, so that the community can celebrate both.

Speaking on the decision to move the event from the first weekend in June when it has historically been held, Tom Christ stated, “Our goal is to support WorldPride's efforts to facilitate and inspire the LGBTQIA+ community in every aspect as we celebrate Pride Month. We have always kicked off Pride Month in Orlando by hosting our event the first weekend in June, but with World Pride slated for that weekend we are moving our event date. With aligned missions, we would like to give people the opportunity to experience both events rather than making what may be a difficult decision to choose one.”

“We welcome all to join us the weekend before to celebrate here in Orlando, especially those international travelers who may want to experience Walt Disney World ® Resort for the first time. We invite our visitors to experience the magic that is Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, Epcot and, of course, our own Iconic event Riptide at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark!”, says Christ.

On behalf of The Capital Pride Alliance, Ryan Bos said, “The Capital Pride Alliance is excited to partner with One Magical Weekend in 2025, as we bring WorldPride to Washington, DC. With the new dates, you can have fun partying in the Florida sun then travel up to our Nation's Capital to keep the party going for what will be a powerful, inspiring, and momentous WorldPride.”

As a major sponsor of One Magical Weekend and Bear Jamboree, Jerry Houston with PRIDE Radio states, "Our entire PRIDE Radio family is thrilled to again partner with One Magical Weekend and Bear Jamboree in Orlando, FL on their new date to help commemorate the kickoff of WorldPride celebrations in Washington, DC! We can't wait to start the party at Walt Disney World® Resorts and carry that flag all the way to our Nation's Capital at next year's celebration!"
