Gay Days Host Hotel Map
As many of the Gay Days Host Hotels get Sold Out what should you do?
- Consider one of the nearby hotels that get you close to the action, but won't require a minimum 2 or 3 night stay.
- If you want a little more quiet but close to the host hotel try Shingle Creek
- Disney also has a lot of hotels on property - we suggest something on Hotel Plaza Blvd. which places you near Downtown Disney parties and Typhoon Lagoon.
