I'm new too, but I'll be on the College Program in Anaheim during their Gay Days.

I'm booked! I decided to go with POFQ this time. The group rate was too good to pass up on, even better than the AP rate.

There's a group rate? How did you get it? And I thought my passholder rate for POR was decent.

Some members of the Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/wdwfd/) are travel agents and secured a group discount on select resorts. POFQ was one of the resorts and the discount is better than what Disney offered.

Try this link http://www.wdwfd.org/WDWFriendshipDays2013-roomonly.pdf

I don't know if it is exclusive to the FB group members.

Hey! I will be arriving at WDW for my DCP on May 20th, right before Gay Days and really looking foward to having a good time!~ I'll probably be working at some of the parks (or training) but just wanted to say Hi! My role is Lifeguard and hopefully ill be at TL or BB! If theres any "must dos" of gay days please let me know! Also any CRUCIAL things i should know to bring/prepare for it?!? I'll probably be busy most of the days like i said working there and training but i definitely dont want to miss out on all the FABULOUS FUN hahaah Another question, is gay days all ages or more of a 'mature' crowd?(i dont disciminate, my ex was 20 yrs older than me, just curious) it doesnt matter really i just want to know what to expect!!!! Would be nice to network with some other gays, and explore the gay orlando scene in my first week down there! (i dont plan on leaving FL after my DCP)

Also looked up the FB and not much ionteraction or posts...

Did you actually join the group? It's pretty well locked-down/members only.

Thanks Brrrendon for posting the links!

WCK: Maybe you'll be working TL when we do the group afternoon at TL! Gay Days really is age agnostic. You'll see all age ranges there. It all depends on what you like. At the parks you do tend to see an older crowd, but not super old. I think the real young ones have been focusing on the parties and they don't end up making it to the parks or at least not until later.

As for what not to miss, that also depends on your interests. I don't do the parties or events at the hotels, so I can't comment on them. I just go for the parks. Regarding the parks, Saturday at MK is the big day. For me the must do's would be Country Bear Jamboree. It starts around noon and goes to about 2. Never seen lines for CBJ so long! And seeing the room packed with bears singing along and hooting and hollering is a site that shouldn't be missed! The other must do is the 3:00 parade. I get a spot near where it starts on Main Street. Once the end of the parade passes we get behind it and walk along behind the parade as it continues on down Main Street and to the hub. It's awesome to turn around and look to see the sea of red shirts following behind the parade. They stop us when it crosses the bridge but after it's all clear open it back up again, but the huge group tends to break up by that point. But we just grab new people as we go and bring them into the sea of red.

The FB group will pick up as it gets closer. Not much interaction needed at this point. Really only people posting about their plans and what they're booking at this point. There's also a FB page, http://www.facebook.com/WDWFriends, which has all the events on it.

This will be the second year my partner and I attend. Both of us are really excited! We're staying at Bay Lake Tower for the first time. We'll be there from May 24th thru June 3rd. Can't wait! Anyone else going to Riptide? We had a blast there last year!
