Breakfast at CP is the BEST! Seeing the buffet all pristine, before people have gone grubbing through everything. Ahhh. Bliss!

I was researching and found this editorial and it made me wonder. Can't post the link since I'm a new user, but it was on the wdwinfo website - which is this website - and By Pete Werner, DIS Founder/Webmaster Maybe I am overreacting to that post, but it made me uncomforatble. After reading this thread, though, I think the article is more about the exception than the rule.

However, I had already decided to make a schedule that goes to non GD parks to avoid crowds. Sounds like I only have to avoid MK on Sat, which is a usual crowd recommendation anyway, iirc.
I always wonder, with all the publicity about Gay Days ( 16+ years & counting), Why schedule a trip to WDW during the First weekend in June, IF you feel need to worry or "Avoid" certain parks. If you live in a world without gayness, If you for what ever reason don't want your children to be made aware of the presence of Gays.
Then it is very simple, don't schedule your WDW trip the first weekend in June. And your memories of Disney will be gay free.

You may want to avoid the castle show, the parades, and any other sort of entertainment also!

Pretty sure the parks and resorts would have to shut down to be gay free.

I think you misunderstood what was said... the point we were making is people have this perception Gay Days is the only time gays are present in their narrow minded thoughts. However that is not the case, we are saying in our joking ways that plenty of cast, plenty of visitors may or may not be gay and guess what -- there were no 'issues'. And if you are 'afraid' then reality check is that gays are present as they should be, have a right to be and not be discriminated against -- EVER. In reality it's irrelevant what one's sexual orientation is but there are those who chose to live in a bubble.

nobody at all is saying stay in the closet or that there should not be gay employees!

I am sorry if you got that impression.

One of my very good friends is a mod on another board here on the DIS. Several times, he's tried to get Pete to go with us to Gaydays, but Pete has basically said that he has never been and will never go.

What Pete doesn't realize is that Gaydays isn't Mardi Gras, it's not Fantasy Fest, it's not NYC Pride. It's a gay day at Disney.

The closet is such a dark and lonely place, please dont go back in there!

My point was....A lot of people think if they avoid Gay Days they avoid Gays at Disney. And that simply is not ture!

There are tons of gay cast members and gay guests each and every day of the year!

As Walt said...

"To all who come to this happy place......Welcome!"

We will be there from May 29th through June 5th. DD will be 11 and DS8. While I'd love to go without them (just once), there would be pure anarchy if they didn't come. Oh and the fact DSS frowns on leaving ones so young alone for a week even with "Nana" aka Rufous the St. Bernard to watch over them.

My son is almost 15. He's practically at the age where he could go to Gay Days without ME!
