Since I'm assuming some people will go to Tyhpoon Lagoon Friday night, what about Thursday night, May 30th? At 10 or 11ish?

Sounds like a plan to me. I'll be there - who else is in?

Happy to see all the POR stays!!! Thurs evening works great! Counting down the days!!!!

Anyone ever done CP for breakfast at MK on Saturday - or are going this year? We have never been to CP and are going this year with an early 8:05 rez. People we've met during GayDays have recommended it......

Anyone going to the Tidal Wave Party Fri night? .....we usually rent a car to go, but waiting for the rates to drop......

Other than that - looking forward to a good time, hanging out and meeting new people and hopefully seeing people we've met in previous years....

Let's plan on meeting at 10:30 PM (right in the middle) at River Roost Lounge in POR on Thursday, May 30th.

CMHGUY, I'm going with my partner and his Mom. I booked us a rez at 8:20 AM that Saturday at CP in the MK, so we will be there shortly behind you. It's amazing to be in the park prior to rope drop and have barely anyone on Main Street (if you haven't already experienced that yet). It's a cool photo op. As far as TIDAL WAVE, we're not going this year, but I went last year. It's always a little crazy. In the past, I've ridden the bus to DTD and walked (more like ran) across the parkway to TL and then did the trip back to get a bus from DTD to my resort.

On Saturday night, I think we're going to hop over to the BW Resort and hit up Jellyroll's and Atlantic City Dance Hall. I had a blast last year at those places, as most of the people there were "family."

We will probably arrive at RiverRoost earlier than 10:30 - we've never experienced YeeHa Bob - any experience seeing him?

We've never been to Jellyrolls - that sounds fun!!! I always forget about that place.......usually, we've been there for a week at that point and we're ready to crash after MK closes....

I'm excited for CP too! I can't wait to see Main St empty and get some pics!

Tidal Wave Party is at WetnWild at US - if we go, we'll need to rent a car - last year it was so cold, so we are thinking we'll wait to see what the weather is like and go last minute if we decide. If not, we may hit up JellyRolls Fri night too - or hang at POR and RiverRoost....maybe a quiet pool....

DP is all about StarWars - and we are there at rope drop on Fridays which was like 7 or 7:30 last year... Plan to do the same this year....

My apologies. I confused Tidal Wave with RipTide at TL. Never done Tidal Wave. Wonder if they're similar?

If you decide not to Tidal Wave, let me know. I can hit up Jellyroll's Friday night instead. I usually make rope drop for HS and MK. This year I have breakfast reservations in most of the parks prior to rope drop. I love a big breakfast. Lots of meat... bacon I mean


What is everyone's favorite thing about Gay Days at Disney World?

10:30 at River Roost Thursday and Jelly Rolls or Atlantic Dance Hall afterward would be fun.

I would like to officially introduce myself. This will be my third trip to Gay Days, signed up to be a volunteer and hope to enjoy it!

I will be traveling alone and hope to make many new friends. If you would like to know somewhat about me, I'm 32wm, 5'11", 250, and very adventurous.

Could someone offer me quick advice about avoiding Gay Day crowds?

A friend of mine is going with her neice and her neice's children between June 1-June 7. They are very accepting and pro-gay, but I'm trying to help them negotiate fast-passes, and best parks to target on a given day.

I've never gone down for Gay Days, so I don't know if the events are centered on any given park on any given day.

Again, they'll be thrilled to party with everybody, but they won't be super-thrilled to stand in longer lines unnecessarily.

The only thing to really do to avoid lines is to hit a park other than the Magic Kingdom on Sat... Otherwise it won't be too bad the rest of the weekend.

Also, for anyone interested we have a group res setup at crystal palace Sat morning with plenty of open seats. Let me know if you would like to join us.

It was originally planned as prepaid but we have changed it to post-paid so people can use ddp credits if they want.

That's an incredible idea . I've done Crystal Palace breakfast both in 2011 and 2012. I'm sure it's a blast with a restaurant full of family.

Thank you for the advice on MK Saturday. That'll be a travel day for them, so they should be good to go. My friend intends to be in her FabHag best through the week regardless. I'm surprised there is only one heavy/target day.

Drinks on top of Bay Lake Tower for fellow DVC members?
