    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 :rotfl:


    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.

    Last time I went in 2010, the majority of the Gay Days crowd leaves the parks afternoon to attend the pool parties. So if you plan on getting to the park late in the day on the scheduled day, you won't find many red shirts in the parks.

    Is anyone staying at the Yacht Club? Anyone want to do a Yacht/Beach/Boardwalk meet?

    Haven't been to Gay Days in years, and can't wait. But seems like they are more disorganized than in the early days.

    And of course there used to be Pleasure Island, which was endless fun, and now.....nothing.....

    Anyone know anything about this Epcot Party on Sunday?

    Thanks everyone.

    I've only been to Orlando gay days one time. I have been regularly attending Anaheim gay days for a few years now. From what I've seen, Orlando's isn't as intimate as Anaheim's. It'd be nice if they offered shirts like Anaheim does.

    I think you should take in Riptide as that was a lot of fun last year. Also, the Epcot resort's are all stunning!

    So excited about our 2nd Gay Days trip! I have a really ridiculous question that I hope isn't disrespectful. If I wear one of the rainbow Mickey Mouse pins as a show of support for my 17yr old son, is that disrespectful since I'm not gay? Is there a better way for me to show my support and love for him during our trip? I have been an adamant gay rights supporter my whole life and I am blessed with my son-this amazing, wonderful young man who I just couldn't love more or be more proud of... Thanks for your help!! :)

    Gosh, what a horrible time to host an event outdoors. Here in Phoenix our gay pride parade and celebration was moved to the month of April because it is unbearable to be outside for more than 30 minutes with the head. Florida should follow suit.
