Orlando Gay and Lesbian Vacations



Your gay Orlando vacation

The theme park capital of the world not only is home to Walt Disney World’s mammoth Magic Kingdom, but also Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and a zillion other attractions in the area. If you haven’t already figured it out, you’ll never be able to see it all in one trip, even though more than 50 million visitors try every year. Beyond the theme parks, Orlando is home to world-class golf courses, spas, resorts, and major shopping. And just for good measure, there’s a Cirque du Soleil theater as well.

Why book on Orbitz?

  • Miss Richfield 1981 says it best in this video—not all travel sites are created equal. When you book on Orbitz, your travel dollars work harder. Here’s why:  

    • We’re the ONLY leading travel agency with a perfect Corporate Equality Index Score from the Human Rights Campaign, with two GLAAD Media awards to boot.
    • We feature the top gay-friendly accommodations.
    • We’re proud sponsors of many LGBT charities and events, year after year.
  • Orlando’s gayborhoods

    Orlando offers several gay bars and clubs, gay lodgings, and tons of LGBT sporting clubs. Areas to explore include the Vi-Mi gay shopping district (the area between Virginia Drive and Mills Avenue), the restored homes in the very gay Thornton Park district, downtown Orlando’s Lake Eola, and Winter Park’s old Floridian streetscape and mini Central Park.

    Gay Days

    Most LGBT tourists come to Orlando for the wildly popular Gay Days on the first Saturday in June, with huge dance parties and special women’s events that make the whole Magic Kingdom feel as gay and lesbian as can be.

    Prideful Orlando

    Pride happens in October around the shores of Lake Eola, and there’s also an Orlando Black Pride the first week of June. The annual Orlando International Fringe theater festival in May is also worth seeing, with outdoor music and theater performances in downtown Orlando.

  • Plan everything, especially meals

    Restaurants at Disney World can book up solid, so make reservations (you can reserve months in advance -- which is recommended!). Better yet, get a hotel room or condo with a kitchen.

    Use the Fastpass system

    Disney World offers Fastpass machines that allow you to use your park tickets to make appointments for the most popular rides rather than having to wait in long, long lines. You’re only allowed to make one reservation at a time, so get to the major rides early.

    Take side trips

    Tampa and beachy St. Petersburg -- both popular with gays -- are about an hour and a half west of Orlando and offer a nice break from the inland heat. Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center are less than an hour’s drive to the east.
