Since its founding in 1998, Gay Days has been on the first weekend of October. This year, the event will fall on different dates. According to the Gay Days Anaheim website, Disney has been asking for Gay Days to be moved to a weekend in September due to the increased marketing and popularity for the Halloween season around the parks. This move will provide a better, less crowded experience for guests. Gay Days agreed to this and signed a contract back in 2018 for the 2021 season, which was unfortunately canceled due to COVID. Now with things returning to normal, the organization can officially announce the September dates for this year.

The first Gay Days Anaheim brought out approximately 2,500 people in 1998. Today, the event brings more than 30,000 attendees to Disneyland Resort during the weekend event. Guests will be able to enjoy theme park meet-ups, trivia games, scavenger hunts, group photos, parties, and more.
