Gay Days are returning to Disneyland this September. The move comes after a year-long hiatus and has been in the works since 2018. Previously, Gay Days have been celebrated in October, but with the increase in demand for Halloween, the move is smart. What started off in 1998 with just 2300 members of the LGBTQ+ community has become one of the largest gatherings, with a crowd of over 30000 expected. Redshirts are Fierce!
This year’s Gay Days will be happening from September 17-19. Firstly, Friday is arrival day. Secondly, Saturday is all about Disneyland. Sunday is reserved for Disney California Adventure. Moreover, the Disneyland event typically features a scavenger hunt. Along with, attraction takeovers on the Mark Twain Riverboat and at the Enchanted Tiki Room. This followed by, a massive group photo in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Lunch normally takes place at four Disneyland restaurants: Plaza Inn, Alien Pizza Planet, Rancho del Zocalo, and Hungry Bear.
Cocktail mixers, stage shows, TV show screenings, games. Also, trivia and book signings and Disney celebrity appearances take place outside the park. The big parties include Wonderland (Friday), Kingdom (Saturday), and Plunge (Sunday by the pool).
We will mention this in passing, it should be noted that Gay Days is not an officially sponsored event by Disneyland. However, Disney will normally do special merchandise and treats, and snacks. I will let ya in on a small secret. Even though Disneyland does not sponsor or recognize Gay Days as an official event, Gay Days are sponsored by Disney’s Aulani Hotel, Adventures by Disney, Disney Vacation Club, and Disney Pride, the company’s LGBT diversity group.
