    Who else likes to take an afternoon break away from the parks? When the crowds start rolling in, I like to head back to my resort for some pool time and adult beverages. Instead of paying those pool bar prices, I take an Uber or Lyft to one of the Walt Disney World Speedway gas station & convenient stores and pick up some beer or premixed bottled cocktails. If you're staying near the Boardwalk area, you just need a one way Uber or Lyft as the Speedway is a short walk from Crescent Lake. Getting excited and looking forward to seeing many of you in just two weeks at the monorail crawl!

    BTW...Shop Disney has a Rainbow collection, with 10% going to GLSEN for anti-bullying in schools. Go to shopdisney.com and search Rainbow Collection. There is a rainbow mickey ball cap, shirts, pins...

    Thanks for the info, Chuck! Free shipping if you spend at least $75, too! Now I have a new cap, tank top, sunglasses, and fanny pack on the way!

    I know it was the Flight of Passage that Dan had some issues with. But, I can't remember his favorite adult beverage. If he has good taste, like me, it would be gin and tonic. LOL! ONLY TWO WEEKS UNTIL THE MONORAIL CRAWL! Woots! It is going to be soooo much fun!

    Dano I usually split time in parks with out-of-parks; I enjoy hanging at Disney Springs/ seeing movie, and just hotel hanging/poolside reading as well. I also park-hop, so it's not unusual for me to spend one afternoon heading to BB or TL and just laying on the river for an hour.

    Just 10 days to go until the monorail crawl! And, just 9 days to go until we will be back in O-Town, searching for good drinks, good food, and good fun!!!

    We're going to be there June 1-10 with my daughter and her best friend who are both somewhere on that lovely LGBTQIA rainbow and will be celebrating their graduating from high school. Are there any events going on that would be appropriate and enjoyable for young queer kids of their age bracket?

    I had to really think about this one for a bit. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any events or activities for the youth, other than visiting the theme parks. I checked the Girls in Wonderland site, only to find that all of their events are for 21+. There used to be a meet up of the youth in front of Cinderella's Castle just before the start of the afternoon parade at MK, but I haven't noticed that in several years. Hopefully, somebody knows about an event or activity for the 18 and under youth. It strikes me as a huge oversight if there isn't some kind of event for the youth.

    Anyone else disappointed in the forecast? Keep hoping it will be updated to the usual quick 4pm thunderstorm and sun the rest of the time but looks like it could be the wettest and greyest GD in years!

    Ugh! Let's hope that it is not a continuous downpour. A lot of ultra right-wing conservative fundamentalist preachers would celebrate that their prayers to "wash out" gay days have been answered.

    Answer to last week's question: D. All of the above......Dano started the Crawl to meet new people who were also Disney geeks, would enjoy an adult beverage and share their Disney experiences.
    This week's question: What's going to be my favorite fashion color for this year's Crawl?
    JUST 1 WEEK FROM TONIGHT IS DANO'S 5TH ANNUAL GAY DAY'S MONORAIL CRAWL. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!! See the 3rd page of this thread for the details of this year's Crawl.
    By now, I am quite sure that most of us have finished our packing. But be sure to open that suitcase and add a poncho and/or umbrella. Looks like it's going to not only be moist this year.

    OK, Mr. Ed. I am totally lost. I never saw the official answer to the trivia question from two weeks ago about Dan's favorite beverage and hangover ride experience. And, "all of the above," is a great answer to a question that I don't even see posted on here. LOL! It's ok, buddy. We still love ya! Sometimes, great minds think way ahead of fingers on the keyboard.
    Hmmm...I know that you will be bright and easy to find in a crowd. Perhaps a bright orange this year?
    ONLY ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL THE MONORAIL CRAWL! :stir::drinking::drinking::drinking:

    This will be some first for me. Going to the monorail bar crawl, staying at the double tree[Fri-Sun], and doing a 5day park hopper instead of a 3-4. Looking forward to meeting new people and since I am traveling single till Friday(when my local Savannah friends join me) hopeing to hang with some new friend at the parks

    The monorail crawl is always a great way to meet new friends! Dan has the itinerary posted on page 3 of this thread. If you are interested in a "pre-pre-crawl," there are several of us planning to meet around 3-3:30pm for some moonshine at Crockett's Tavern at the Ft. Wilderness Campground. We'll take the ferry over to Geyser Point at Wilderness Lodge for some food and the official pre-crawl starting time of 5pm.
    This will probably be my last post before we fly down late Tuesday night. Safe travels, everybody! And, Happy Gay Days!!! :yay::welcome::drinking:
