    How crowded is Gay Days??

    We wanted to do one more trip before our AP's expired. Since the AP7 rates just came out I was going to book the first week in October.

    Checking the dates I noticed that is Gay Days. How crowded is it?

    Gay Days is an extremely busy time for the park. Expect huge crowds, long waits, and a whole lotta fun t-shirts.

    I actually found the wait times to be quite reasonable actually. There are so many Gay-Days activities that don't include rides. But the park overall is quite busy.

    When exactly does it start. Friday during the day or more Saturday and Sunday? Both parks or primarily Disneyland.

    We also have a 1st grader that just stated reading, and reads everything. Am I going to be explaining shirts to her all day.

    Oh hubby's favorite gay days shirt was the Beauty and the Beast lyrics one.

    Friday Afternoon/Evening ... but there is usually a private event on Friday night at some club. Saturday is the main day.

    As far as Shirts ... I don't think so. Most shirts we saw last year contained innuendo and really would go over most kids head.

    I seem to recall that lines to attractions weren't THAT crazy, but that the number of people IN the parks was. Like the walkways were quite crowded, but the lines, not too too bad.

    But in all honesty, it is such a fun weekend, that if you're with the right group of people, the line lengths just do not matter because you are having such a great time.

    If you do go, make sure to stop by the numerous MiceChat meets that we have. Get to know your fellow MiceChatters, and have some fun in the process.

    Meets are usually made up by Dusty, and are usually posted in early September. There's always a bunch of meets on Saturday so keep your eyes peeled for updates.

    Re: How crowded is Gay Days??

    We went last year and didn't know it was Gay Day- ( Wasn't aware of the day or the event cal either).. Anyhoo- It was tough trying to explain it to the little ones.. I mean we always were planning on telling them about the other side of the fence but it got a little difficult right on the spot.. If you know you are going and with the chance that something is seen or read by your little ones- I would have some kind of dialog prepared on how to handle it. I think we did OK right on the spot and the rest of the trip went fine... It was bound to happen at some point but we just weren't prepared, so I think you have a advantage of knowing ahead of time how to respond to questions from little minds
    Actually, it didn't seem any more crowded then normal and everyone was really nice- We would go again gay day or not.... It was the Bat day that scared the little ones....

    Re: How crowded is Gay Days??

    I went to the parks every single weekend last fall (including Thanksgiving Day!), and Gay Days was the most crowded of all those for the fall! It's like a sunny Saturday in mid-spring. But it was pretty fun for me, not torture.

    If you go to the gay Days web site you can see the schedule. They usually plan one park for each day. There are always people who do their own thing, but I think most of the crowds stay with plan. We were there a few years ago and the crowds were very manageable.
