I see that from your crowd calendar, it appears the days in the week after the Gay Days at Disney World weekend are a fair time to visit regarding crowds if summer is when you have to go. My question is do you have to worry about many staying the week after and being exposed to all of “THAT” that week following the Gay weekend? Is is just that WEEKEND or the entire week?

Here’s a little song I wrote

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

I just love that little song. It’s so appropriate to crowds the week after Gay Days at Disney World (usually the first weekend in June).
The week after the festivities, crowds will be moderate. Most east coast schools are still in session and the throngs don’t really show up until later in the month.
The second weekend in June is normally the last of the Star Wars Weekends. Crowds on the weekend at Disney Hollywood Studios are pretty large, but all the other parks will be almost serene.
Gay Days at Disney World has been around for over 20 years, so I guess it’s here to stay. I hope by now the word is out so families don’t get caught unaware, but I’m afraid that many do.
The lineup has been the same for several years. On Thursday, it’s the Animal Kingdom, Friday it’s Disney Hollywood Studios, Saturday is the Magic Kingdom and Sunday is EPCOT. There are some other events in Orlando earlier in the week. In 2012 the event is scheduled for May 30 through June 3.
The good news is that by the Monday after 99% of the revelers have hit the skies are are on their way home. You shouldn’t have to worry about anyone being exposed to “THAT” more than on any other day at Disney World.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Like Bobby says, don’t worry, be happy. is a real good week to visit. Crowds will be manageable and the ridiculous summer heat is just getting started.
