Gay Days at Disneyland 2013

Hey again all! I know it's still a few months away, but I thought we could start planning a meetup for Gay Days at Disneyland.

For those who have never heard of it, Gay Days is an independent event that is held during the first weekend of October at the Disneyland Resort. It is not sponsored or officially recognized by Disney, but cast members are very supportive and welcoming. There are parties throughout the weekend, as well as a Welcome Center. They're current schedule has all Gay Day events at one park each day: Disneyland on Saturday, and DCA on Sunday.

As the event gets closer, we can start planning exactly where to meet up in the park and all that fun stuff. As of right now, I will probably be only be available on Saturday, but if anyone else wants to take a day, I can expand this or ad an extra event for each day.

For more information on Gay Days Anaheim, go to their official website: http://www.gayday2.com/

 

 

For those who want to start plotting our schedule for the day, here's some info:

Group Photo, 2:00pm, Sleeping Beauty Castle"Wear your red shirt and say 'Cheese!' This ginormous photo op is the place to see and be seen."

 

 

After thoroughly scouring Disneyland and looking over the schedules, here's what I've got for us:**Obviously, everything is optional, and we don't have to stay together the whole day. I know at least 1 of my guests is planning on abandoning us to going to the "Ladies Who Lunch" event and join up again later.

  • 9:00am: We'll meetup by the giant Mickey head Pumpkin in the Main Street, USA plaza. I will be holding a sign wiht the group's logo printed on it to make it easy to find me. I will send out my cell # the night before, in case people get lost and need to find us.
  • 11:00am: "The BIG Red Boat" - Mark Twain Riverboat. From the Gay Days website: "Ahoy matey! Looking to mix, mingle or make a new friend? Then come, um, cruise with us! Meet in front of the attraction and we’ll sail the Rivers of America together. (And please wait in front until we bring everyone on board—we want to make sure everyone, um, cruises together!)"
  • 12:00pm: "Ladies Who Lunch" - Rancho del Zocalo, Frontierland. From the Gay Days Website: "Women who love women can meet up for a spicy dish at this restaurant (and the food's not bad either!). Keep your eyes peeled for the ladies in red."
  • 2:00pm: Group Photo - Sleeping Beauty Castle. From the Gay Days website: "Wear your red shirt and say 'Cheese!' This ginormous photo op is the place to see and be seen."
  • 4:25pm: "Mickey and the Magical Map" - Fantasyland Theatre. Anyone who hasn't see it, this is a very cute show and worth watching.

As for ride and shows in between, we can decide which ones and what order we want to go to them in. Some ideas:

  • Indiana Jones Adventure
  • The Haunted Mansion Holiday
  • Pirates of the Carribean
  • Disneyland Railroad
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • it's a small world
  • Star Tours
  • Captain EO
  • Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
  • Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters
  • Autopia
  • Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy
  • And, to finish off the night: Jungle Cruise - the last cruise of the night is usually the best.

Again, this is all just a list of suggestions. Nothing is mandatory, and we don't have to stay together the whole day. If you need to leave early, that's fine.

Don't forget your red shirts!!

    Hello everyone. We were looking forward to meeting you all, but due to a wind related issue, we are not going to be able to go to Disneyland today. Very disappointed. :( Look forward to meeting you at another event. Tim & CJ

    I like your list of suggestions Myles. I think we should head for the first three on the list first. That way we will be in the vicinity of the BIG Red Boat at 11 am.

    My partner Tim & I will be there Friday also. Anyone else going then and want to meet on Friday? We got a park hopper ticket, so we will likely go to Disneyland early and spend the evening at California Adventure since Disneyland closes at 7pm for their Halloween party Friday night.

    I've been meaning to go to Disneyland for awhile now and this is the perfect excuse. However, days off are often hit or miss so I won't be able to RSVP until I get closer to the date but I'm hoping to be there! :-)

    Sorry, not paying Disney $100+++ to be gay at their park. Hmm, does that make Disneyland gay for pay? ; )
