What could possibly be more magical than thousands of members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community, their families and their supporters, gathering together in one of the largest gay pride events in the world? When it is called Disney World Gay Days and happens at the most magical place on earth, that’s what!
This years Disney World Gay Days will take place in Orlando from May 31 to June 2, 2013, and the weekend promises to be an event you won’t want to miss. The event gets underway with RipTide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark on Friday, combining two of the most fantastic things - water slides and cocktails. The private party will run from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m and will have you surfing a tidal wave one minute and then showing off your moves on the dance floor the next.
Saturday will be the day that you sport your red t-shirt and channel your inner child as you enjoy Magic Kingdom® during Red Shirts Create Magic. The event has grown from about 3,000 members of the GLBT community gathering in 1991, to tens of thousands of GLBT’s, their families and their supporters, wearing red shirts and and having the time of their lives at Magic Kingdom®.
The red shirts at Disney World Gay Days are to encourage and show support for the GLBT community and the event is a way for people to reclaim childhood joys that may have been lost due to homophobia in earlier years. The growing attendance also indicates the increasing number of GLBT’s with children.
Finally, the Disney World Gay Days’ weekend will wrap up the way any great weekend should: with Drinks Around the World and Retro-T at Epcot©. You’ll be able to get your Canadian drink on when you sip a cold beverage while visiting Canada or head on over to Germany to sample their delightful fare.
After sampling the best that other countries of the world have to offer in the food and drink department, you can work off those extra calories with a private dance party at the Odyssey from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Of course your grooves will be an excellent time to show off your Retro-T that you will be wearing.
Finally, that night will end with a magical fireworks display "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth", watched by you from a VIP private viewing area. Disney World Gay Days is shaping up to be one magical weekend and you don’t want to miss it. Get your tickets today.
