The 24th annual Gay Days for the year of 2014 have arrived and all of the festivities are ready to take off for a week of fun in Orlando, Florida. The week officially begins on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, and now per GayDays.com, the week's festivities are confirmed. Below is a full schedule for the week and which parks (Walt Disney Worldand more) to visit on which days.
As per GayDays.com, the week is an "all-over town, something-for-everyone vacation extravaganza." Over 150,000 gays and lesbians will be traveling to Orlando in order to take part in all the fun and enjoying the company of so many others.
Planning often starts way in advance, so while it's not too late to partake in everything, it may be a little more difficult to do it at this point. Lots of hotels and resorts in the area are already filled up so vacancies aren't easy to find availability at.
Let's not forget that it's the start of the summer and Walt Disney World is a serious vacation spot as always.
While there is a lot more than just visiting the theme parks, below is a list of which parks to visit during Gay Days. Don't forget your red shirts either.
