Gay couple and Disney fans Gregory Gaige and Craig Moss decided to celebrate Pride month with a challenge. Not only did they spend part of the month at Walt Disney World, celebrating with Mickey Mouse, but they tried to ride every ride and kiss on them in a single day.
Walt Disney World, located in Florida, is the Disney company’s second theme park resort. Founded in 1971, it followed the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
Disney World consists of four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom — and by Gregory and Craig’s count, 49 rides.
Gregory document the day and challenge on his YouTube challenge. The day began around 7 am and the couple hit up Magic Kingdom first.
The 21-minute video shows Gregory and Craig sharing affectionate smooches on rides like the Seven Dwarfs’ Mine Train, Star Tours, Frozen Ever After and more.
But did they complete the challenge and kiss on every single ride, staying up until the early hours of the morning the next day?
‘I’m really pleased’
Back in the hotel room, Gregory reveals they were not able to complete the challenge and get to every ride. Lying exhausted in the bed behind him, Craig mumbles, ‘Three and a half parks.’
The couple managed to get on every ride — and kiss — at Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. They did not complete Magic Kingdom, however.
It was still an amazing effort, though, as shown by the charming video.
‘With so many terrible things happening to LGBTQ+ people around the world today it’s important that we spread messages
of love, positivity and acceptance,’ Gregory said.
‘What better way to do that than sharing a kiss with my best friend in the place that makes us the happiest, and what better time to share this message than Pride Month? We may not have managed every single ride, but I’m really proud of what we did.’
The challenge was a natural fit for the couple. Gregory’s YouTube video consists primarily of various Disney videos and two years ago, he livestreamed his proposal to Craig in front of Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom.
