There are still rooms available at reasonable prices in Downtown Orlando. If you'd like to stay away from the 24 hour non-stop insanity of Lake Buena Vista and just make your appearance at the party and then leave, here are a few great ideas. Try the Crowne Plaza Orlando Downtown or the Sheraton Orlando Downtown, They're located directly on I-4, so you can hop on the expressway to the parties quick and easy. A few blocks off the freeway you'll find the AAA Four Diamond (that means it ain't cheap) Grand Bohemian Hotel, an Orlando institution and the Embassy Suites Downtown Orlando. And don't worry, if you're looking to hook up, Grindr works in downtown hotels too. You'll probably get more bang for your buck staying downtown!
The menu is fresh, seasonal and filled with authentic flavors from local farms and regionally sourced, hand selected ingredients whenever possible. The salads and sandwiches are creative combinations that play on a standard theme that we'd describe as, delicious. The best cuts of aged beef and incredibly fresh seafood are prepared on a wood burning grill. Discover new wines and indulge in handcrafted cocktails that also feature seasonal ingredients like local fruits and herbs. Live entertainment and a spacious dining room make Grille 401 the perfect place for gatherings with friends, corporate events or for mingling and making new friends.

Please visit this page Send a Thank You to Disney to thank Disney for being accepting to all its guests, whether straight or gay, and allowing us all to have fun in a safe and loving environment.
Also, we thank Disney for not allowing itself to be bullied by groups like One Million Moms, who would rather have Disney close their doors to the LGBT community and practice discrimination, rather than love and acceptance.
We remind you that if you teach children messages of love, acceptance and tolerance, then they will grow to be adults who practice this behavior. They will only know homophobia and hate if they are taught that. Come and join the LGBT community on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at Magic Kingdom® and show your support!
Tickets to “You Can Play Night” start at $20. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to South Florida LGBT youth programs, including Pridelines Youth Services, Safe Schools South Florida, The Pride Center, NVEEE, Sunserve, Youth Pride Band and The Alliance for LGBTQ Youth.
