Gay Days At Walt Disney World

The annual GayDays event is in full swing in Orlando. This is the 16th year for the event and over 140,000 event participants are expected. This means huge swings in attendance at themeparks around the city - up to 60,000 Gay Days participants are expected at the Magic Kingdom on saturday. However, Disney is not an official sponsor, but given the US gay and lesbian travel market is valued at about $50 billion nationwide, the Magic Kingdom doesn't want to lose out, so holds fast to what it has always said: “The parks welcome everyone”.
