ok. just looking at special events listed for june, i found out today that we're gonna be at disney for the 'gay days'.
as charming as it all sounds (and my 16 yr old dd is as huge a fag hag as i am- i can say that here, right? if someone is offended- and i certainly don't mean it offensively- do give us a good synonym, please
), i have this feeling that it is going to be really, really, really, really, really, really crowded.
every guide book that i've read (i wasn't paying attention the 4 times i've been there previously, but i wasn't going with a 9 and 29 m old baby!) has said that paradoxically, friday and sunday are the best days to go (because of all the folks travelling those days), and monday through wednesday the most hideously crowded- so we'd planned fri and sun... unknown to me, the height of gay days!
has anybody been? (the only gay friends irl i have right now are my best friend who's never been (we were disneyLAND based), and my hairdresser- but i got pissy with him and went to someone else last 'do, and i don't DARE ask him till it grows out, lol!)
i need advice, quick! i'll do crowds, or i wouldn't be willing to even try disney (and god knows the lines would be more entertaining), but this baby-thing scares me, and i want to minimize stressors- and if there are a million more people there than USUAL, oy.
(the 'gay days' site has been down, so i can't even find any info there! and disney themselves are pretty closemouthed about the whole thing- i'm afraid to call and ask 'just about how many homosexuals do you expect to show up?', kwim? it doesn't sound very nice, and i'm sure they'd take it in a way i did not mean.)
suse<---- christian, but not baptist
edit: now some of my best friends are baptists, so don't y'all get offended either! i obviously meant i wasn't part of an official boycott of disney (any reasons i have to be upset with disney have nothing to do with queer folk and are not within the scope of this post.)
