What’s New for Gay Days Disney World

Published Date Author: , May 23rd, 2014

Gay Days OrlandoEvery few years our area’s theme parks go through a phase where they each launch new shows, rides and attractions. Whether the ultimate goal is to provide guests with additional unique experiences and memories…or if it’s a bottom line-based attempt to capture as much market share of tourism dollars as possible is debatable. But hey: if it means fun and exciting new thrills for us, we’re good. And while you might think that the theme park engineers and designers would have their newest offerings all ready to go by Gay Days–because, seriously, who’s better at creating buzz around anything new than we are?–try as they might, sometimes they just can’t get everything running correctly, and safely, until later in the summer.

No worries, though. Even if you hit all of the area’s theme parks last year, there’s still plenty new to be found this year.

Disney World’s Expansion

Since Gay Days Disney World takes place at the Magic Kingdom each first Saturday of June, let’s start our “What’s New” tour there. The park recently completed its Fantasyland expansion project–the largest expansion in the history of the park. The land is divided into two sections, the Enchanted Forest and Storybook Circus. Fantasyland’s signature ride, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, just opened and takes riders into the mineshaft workplace of Snow White’s seven best friends. Never mind that an attraction themed to dwarfs comes with a 38-inch height requirement, it’s a family-friendly roller coaster that features first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to gently sway during the ride’s twists and turns.
