I am looking forward to making some new friends there.
I was going to stay at POR, but I went with BWI because of the location. But POR should have a large Gay Days crowd. You should keep updating on here, as it gets closer to May people will start posting about meeting-up at Disney.

My dear Mom (widowed in July 2012 after 62 years of marriage), my boys and I will be staying at POR May 31st - June 5th. My dear Mom has never flown, so this will be a challenging trip for all of us. I am thankful that we will be staying at a wonderful WDW property and surrounded by love. I am just thankful that we will able to stay during Gay Days and be enveloped by the love of all Disney fans.

I've had to cancel my gay days trip due to a scheduling conflict that came up

Hopefully I can make it next year!

Hi all, patrick here. i am about to start planning a trip for gaydays as well. Any tips on where to stay and not to stay? Travelling on my own! I just signed up for the facebook group as well. All tips and advices are welcome. Hope to meet some new friends as well when there. Thanks from a freezing and snowwhite Holland. :-)

People seem to be happy with the Epcot area hotels like Boardwalk Inn, Beach Club, Yacht Club or even the Swan and Dolphin. They are all walking distance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It depends on what you want in a hotel. I spend most of the time at Epcot, so I chose the Boardwalk Inn for this trip. If you don't really care what the hotel theme is or location then the Port Orleans hotels are a good choice at a moderate price.

How are the crowds typically on the EPCOT day? (Sunday, June 2nd this year) i.e. Will I notice longer wait times or is it still pretty easy going at EPCOT?

Ride lines shouldn't be much worse than usual. Alcohol lines get long though.

Fastpass+

Get to EPCOT before noon, sprint, skip or walk briskly to all the fastpass kiosks you want to ride.

Maybe this spring you will get to use the new FastPass+ (RFID) system.

Hi Everyone,

You do know that Saratoga Springs has great rates for Gay Days right?

Two years ago, we joined a meet-up at the Country Bear Jamboree. It was a fun campy pre-show waiting to get into the theater. I want to do it again, but I didn't see it listed. What time is the meet-up this year?

This tends to happen around Noon to 1 or 2pm. Definitely worth doing, especially for those of us who like bears of all kinds.
