Gay Fairy Tale Weddings OK at Disneyland

4/6/2007 4:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Disney Fairy Tale Weddings and HoneymoonsStunning news from the Happiest Place on Earth today: Disney brass has decided that all people, both gay and straight, are now welcome to purchase the "Fairy Tale Wedding" package at Disneyland and on Disney cruise ships.

Per the AP, "The company said it made the change after being contacted by a gay couple who wanted to use the wedding service, which offers ceremonies at Disneyland in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney's cruise ships."

(Memo to Bob Iger: Synergy opportunity! Ordain Isaiah Washington as a Universal Life Minister, and let the healing begin!)

To tell the truth, we're disappointed, but not for the reasons you might think.

Yes, of course, we're dispiritedly bracing for the inevitable hateful and disgusting harangues from the lunatic fringe of talk radio, wherefrom disparaging and offensive punchlines will emanate.

And we're not looking forward to it, but have come accept the inexorable truth that for Bill Donohue or some other religious fulminators, Disney's decision is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to decry another rending of the fabric of American moral this or that.

Yes, we're even prepared for the South Park-ing of this uniquely fraught cultural war moment.

But really, what disappoints us most is that shows like "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "The L Word" had fraudulently lead us to believe that gay people are inherently more fashionable and stylish than heterosexuals. The fact that an actual gay couple actually wanted to use Disneyland as the location of their nuptials contravenes such a noble postulate.

There is one bright spot: At last, we truly are all equal -- if only in our tackiness.

I applaud Disneyland for being fair to all people! A wedding at Disneyland is magical, and everyone should be able to have the wedding of their dreams. It doesn't matter if someone is straight or gay... we are all human beings and we are all equal. Way to go, Disneyland!

Yep, this is why I say Disneyland is full of HypocrisywithacapitalH! If Dizzyland back off of supporting and promoting Keith Richards, yet supports this, that and the other, they really have it wrong. Does Disney even have a mission statement anymore?

Peter Pan will now replace Mickey- how sad!

I hope they make seperate hotels for all the hershey-kissers. I find it revolting, and really dont want to see them on a family vacation.

Those who choose to forgo their civilization skills that were suppose to be taught will only oust themselves as the dispectable MORANS they truly are.....and those who boycott you...well thats a little less trash for your security to have to worry about and that much

COMMANDER IN CHEIF.....you have shown what a true LEADER you really are!!!!!!!!!!
There will be a day when we can banquish these close minded morans to a far corner of the planet and let them fight among themselves.....it can never come too soon!!!!!!

WAY TO GO!!!! MANKIND JUST TOOK ANOTHER GIANT STEP TO A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE!!!!!!! ii dont know about these other morans, but i want my child to learn to accept people for who they are, and learn to live in harmony.....what a boring world it would be if we were all the same!!!!!!!! gays have been some of the most friendliest people i have met...and also the most in touch human beings. cc in tampa

whoever wrote this article is a horrible writer. i can see that they frequented thesaurus.com quite often and after all that trying to find big, fancy words it ended up sounding awful and overdone. good job!

oh and CJ, pj45, Kris, and Sheila.. get a life. there's absolutely nothing wrong with a gay couple. it's just like a biracial couple. think about it that way. i don't see anyone knocking that arrangement.

By the tone of some of these messages, it seems Micky Mouse is a more successful teacher of love and understanding than modern Christianity is. I mean wow, it's a just a commitment cermony, not a porno.

And to those "disgusted" who won't go anywhere gays go, maybe you better stay in your room. Look around. If there are more than 10 people nearby, statistically one of them is gay. Even in your church, your schools, and in your very own home, at your very own dinner table.

Have a nice day.
