    I wasn't planning to go - but a private gay tea dance at the Odyssey in Epcot might just sway me!

    "Topping off an unstoppable One Magical Weekend...the weekend ending gala...Retro T at the world famous around the world at Epcot®, replete with beverages and trappings from a dozen countries, a private Retro T Dance from 5:00pm to 9:00pm at the Odyssey"

    The dress code is still red shirts?
    Can I also wear my collection of Cruella DeVil jewelry?
    Also: Is that also on of the "Star Wars Weekends?"

    This year will be my 2nd time attending - I loved the gay friendly experience in the Disney parks. I won't be staying in the host hotel, however. I'm coupled and in my 40s. Last time, my partner and I stayed in the host hotel and found the pool parties to be exhaustingly LOUD (until the wee hours of the morning), the parking situation ridiculously CROWDED by visitors to the hotel, and the people not-altogether friendly. I imagined hotel guests would have had a sense of community and SMILE when they pass you in the courtyard...maybe even say hello as they walk past. The host hotel experience wasn't horrible, but certainly NOT what we had in mind. We'll be staying at Disney's All-Star Music Resort this time - a mainstream value hotel. We're going for the gay-friendly theme park experience anyway, and not to party like a rockstar, lol.

    We are planning to attend. Like the PP, we are also in our 40s and prefer staying on property - that's more our speed. We are staying at POR this year and counting the days!!!!!

    Me and my partner just booked a trip for Gay Days 2013 yesterday. This will be my 3rd Gay Days and his 1st. We're staying May 29 through June 3 at POR. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Had a blast last year!

    Great, and yes to all of your questions.

    I love POR and POFQ, so much so that I think I am changing my reservation from BWI to POFQ and saving like 3.5 billion dollars. More $$ for adult beverages.

    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! 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.
