I think you should stay at POR this year since there are a few of us here on the boards staying there for Gay Days! I'm staying in a Royal Room fit for a Princess!

The Princess Rooms!! That's so cool. I might switch to POR, I'm at BWI right now. I love POR, but I figured I can stumble back to BWI from Epcot and Atlantic Dance Hall very easily. We'll see what happens, I change my mind on a daily basis.

This sounds like such a fun event, that I just may be free for! Any tips on those traveling alone?

I am also wondering what it will be like to be there solo. Reading over this thread, I am seriously considering booking. I have finally come out and am going through a separation (a topic for another thread) -- but I think a quick trip to Disney for something like this might be just what I need!

POR is a great resort. I have stayed in the Royal Rooms before and would love to do so again. Do people tend to meet up at the resort too?

There are a lot of people that travel to Gay Days alone, or with friends, or make friends there. It's a very social event.

I'm not sure about people meeting up at the Disney resorts to socialize, but we do in the parks for certain events. The regulars from here meet at Gay Days every year and maintain friendships.

If you stay at the host hotel there are parties and shows and the like 24/7. It's a different scene though; more party, less Disney.

If you stay on Disney property you will still see a large Gay Days crowd at most of the Disney resorts. I noticed last year the Epcot resorts were very popular.

But don't worry about traveling alone. I used to travel alone to gay Days and never felt "lonely" because I made friends every time.

I am sorry you are going through such a rough time. Just starting to deal with the same s---t myself. I think going to GD will be a great idea. Like the folks in this thread say, we will not be alone!

I want to be more adventurous this year and try the big Universal party and Downtown orlando parties if anyone is interested in some off-site PG-13 fun.

Thanks -- that is pretty much what I thought but just wanted to hear it from someone else who has been there. I am going to book POR this evening -- much more my speed than staying off property. I will be coming down early Thursday morning and have a late flight out Saturday night. I figure a short trip to Disney for Gay Days will be better than no trip at all.

I am looking forward to making some new friends there.

Thanks -- it is rough but I agree that this trip is a great idea. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and just being back at Disney!
