The 2019 Gay Days at Disneyland are set to take place Friday, October 4 to Sunday, October 6. For its 22nd year, the event is expected to attract more than 30,000 LGBT park-hoppers from California and all over the country. They will enjoy Disneyland in a way that it can only be experienced during Gay Days.

Friday's highlights include WONDERLAND, a dance party with DJ Ray Rhodes (Tiger Heat, KBIG 104.), and featuring "RuPaul's Drag Race" favorite, A'keria C. Davenport. For the first time, this Alice in Wonderland themed party will be in an actual rose garden at the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. The event runs from 9:00 pm—1 am. Tickets are $25 and are available now.

Saturday, October 5 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 with music from renowned DJ Roland Blemares and a special performance by "RuPaul's Drag Race" favorites, Nina West and Miz Cracker! KINGDOM will be held at its brand new location, House of Blues, Anaheim. 9 pm—1:30 am. Tickets are $50.

Saturday will also feature Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), bringing the acclaimed play, Tilda Swinton Answers an ad on Craigslist, to Gay Days, straight from its sell-out engagements off-Broadway and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Tickets are $35.

Sunday, October 6 will be Gay Day at Disney's California Adventure and the Gay Days Anaheim pool party, PLUNGE! from noon until 4:00 p.m. at the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel. DJ Zach Moos will be spinning while Mermaids splash around in the pool. Tickets are $25.

VIP ticket packages for the three parties are available now. VIP Gold tickets include access to an exclusive cocktail party with celebrity guests and an open bar.

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 the Gay Days Welcome Center (located inside the Trillium Room of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel), screenings of ABC pilots, 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 in order to identify each other and to show strong numbers. Official T-shirts are available at the official Gay Days at Disneyland website.

Gay Days Anaheim is NOT a Disney-sponsored event so Disney will not have any
information regarding the unofficial happening.

Sponsors for the event include Ketel One, Howard Johnson Anaheim, Disney Vacation Club, Adventures by Disney, Aulani, and Wicked Sensual Care. Media sponsors are Here TV, The Fight, Queerty, Rage, LA Blade and EDGE Media Network.
