  • June 2 to 3, 2023

During the summer each year is when an annual festival known as Gay Days takes place in Orlando. Universal theme park visits are part of the festival, but Gay Days is not a Universal-run event, so there are no special events or merchandise on property. The event is simply a way for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) individuals, along with their families and friends, to show support for one another and their community.

Gay Days organizers designate a different Universal Orlando theme park to visit on each of two days. The large groups are, for the most part, non-intrusive. Therefore, even with their large numbers, it is easy to avoid any attractions that are developing longer waits due to the extra guests. We always suggest the use of a good touring plan and the Lines app to avoid any large groups in the parks.

If you wish to avoid the crowds from Gay Days altogether, the best solution is to go to a different park than they visit. For more information about Gay Days, check their web site at
