Starting next month, a brand new experience will be coming to Walt Disney World including Disney Springs to celebrate Black History Month in the United States.

Disney will be showcasing all sorts of special things to highlight Black artists, achievements and jazz music.

At Disney Springs, guests will be able to “celebrate Soulfully” which includes new art displays, food and drink items, and more.

Anette Gibs, Public Relations Manager at Disney Parks revealed on the Disney Parks blog that the event at Disney Springs will bring “together several new offerings”.

“With jazz-inspired performances, new art displays, special food menus, and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”

“Featured will be four new art displays inspired by Disney and Pixar’s “Soul,” created by emerging Black artists: Bee Harris, Bianca Pastel, Arrington Porter and Cory Van Lew.”

“Originally developed in collaboration with Disney and Pixar as part of a HUE Unlimited collection of wearable art, the work reflects each artist’s interpretation of the film.”

“Three evenings per week – Motown Mondays, Jazz Thursdays and Smooth Sundays – musicians will perform throughout Disney Springs, playing tunes sure to stir your soul.”

“In addition, select dining locations will feature special menu items, including Amorette’s Patisserie offering treats inspired by ‘Soul’ and Walt Disney Animation Studio’s ‘The Princess and the Frog.'”

“Also at Disney Springs, several retail locations will spotlight products from Black designers, artists, and visionaries.”

“As part of their “Movies Under the Stars” program, select Disney Resort hotels throughout the month of February will show films celebrating Black culture, such as “The Princess and the Frog.” These complimentary movie screenings are available to guests of Disney Resort hotels, offering relaxing evening entertainment for the whole family in a serene outdoor setting.”
