Saturday, Oct. 7, will be Gay Day at Disneyland, which includes a full day of activities in the park and culminates with Kingdom, the weekend’s signature dance party featuring DJ Roland Blemares and special performances by Todrick Hall and RuPaul stars Morgan McMichaels, Chad Michaels and Delta Work.

VIP Gold tickets include access to an exclusive cocktail party with celebrity guests: Alec Mapa and Disney legend Bob Gurr.

Both days in the parks will feature gatherings only available over Gay Days weekend, including a scavenger hunt, a group photo, a lesbian ice cream social, group meet ups at varying attractions, and many more events targeted to families, teens, bears, couples and Mouseketeers of every ilk. A complete schedule is available at the Gay Days website: www.GayDaysAnaheim.com

Other highlights of the weekend include free gift bags at the Gay Days Welcome Center (located inside the Trillium Room of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel), film screenings, and mixers.

Gay Days Anaheim is a “mix-in” with the park’s other weekend guests, but gays and lesbians are encouraged to wear red shirts to identify each other. Official T-shirts are available at the official Gay Days at Disneyland website. Note: Gay Days Anaheim is not a Disney-sponsored event so Disney will not have any information regarding the “unofficial” happening.

Sponsors include Delta Airlines, Ketel One, Howard Johnson Anaheim, Adventures by Disney, Aulani, and AC Howard Law. Media sponsors are Pride.com, The Fight, Queerty, Rage, and EDGE.
