Successful 2013 Disney World Gay Days

The bad news is that Disney World Gay Days in Orlando have come and gone for 2013. But the good news is that you can start planning your trip for next year to the most magical place on earth to celebrate Disney World Gay Days!

On May 31st, 2013, Disney World Gay Days started with a splash with RipTide, the opening party at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community and their supporters, friends and family, stayed cool while careening down water slides and surfing the tidal waves, before dancing up a storm.

Countering the Intolerant and the Homophobic


While One Magical Weekend, Brett Henrichsen’s Masterbeat, and WE Party are busy putting the final touches on what is sure to be the hottest weekend party of the summer, we are saddened to hear that a group called One Million Moms is opposed to Disney World Gay Days. This group is trying to enlist your help to petition Disney to stop the “harm this causes families” to be at the theme park at the same time as gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender (GLBT), their families and their supporters.

WE PARTY & One Magical Weekend - Partners


Just when you thought that One Magical Weekend couldn’t have become any hotter or any bigger, we are announcing that WE PARTY is partnering with us to take this year’s Disney World Gay Days to a whole new level.

Spain’s hottest export, WE PARTY, will make its Orlando debut at the Saturday night event  on June 1, 2013, at Epcot’s© World Showplace, partnering with Brett Henrichsen of Masterbeat and promising an elaborate stage production that has made WE PARTY and Masterbeat famous on the international party scene.

One Magical Weekend and Masterbeat Announce WE Party: WASH


The Main Event in Orlando during the Annual Gay Gathering in Orlando is Saturday, June 1st at Disney’s EPCOT © World Showplace

Orlando, Florida – April 1, 2013


One Magical Weekend, the annual series of gay parties at Disney World, announced today they are joining forces with Masterbeat to present the Orlando debut of Spain’s hottest export – the “We Party” - for the biggest Saturday night main event ever! 


Originally scheduled for Sunday night, the WE Party WASH event has been moved to Saturday, June 1, prompted by overwhelming demand from revelers for an even bigger event following WE Party’s sold-out “Formula” party at Miami’s Winter Party earlier this month.  As they did in Miami, producers promise the Orlando event will feature the incredibly elaborate stage production Masterbeat and the WE Party brand are world famous for. Additionally, WE Party: WASH will take place at Epcot’s© World Showplace, marking the return of the main event to a Disney theme park.

“We’re excited to partner with One Magical Weekend (producers of the #1 rated beach party in the world,  Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark) to bring the main event back to Disney where it belongs,” said Brett Henrichsen of Masterbeat at this morning’s announcement. “With thousands of guests coming for WE Party from around the world, Epcot’s© World Showplace is the perfect location to be transformed into the country’s largest mega-club with a thundering six point line array concert sound system, 3D LED visual walls, lasers and more!”   

WE Party’s own resident DJ Manuel de Diego will return to man the decks and take guests on his signature musical journey after the rave reviews from his recent turn at WE Party: Formula in Miami.  “It was obvious the USA wants more of Manuel de Diego, and we’re excited to bring him back for WASH” says Tom Christ and Billy Looper of One Magical Weekend.  “WASH” is the latest of WE Party’s whimsical and famous themes where an entire event is based on a theme, with “WASH” promising a “new and improved formula” where just one drop will wash your worries away and take you to a new world of fun.

Occurring for over 22 years, the annual gathering in Orlando in and around Disney’s theme parks attracts thousands of gay men and women from all over the world.  Famous for the annual tradition of wearing red shirts and red feather boas to Orlando’s Magic Kingdom, an entire weekend full of fun and frivolity with their friends and favorite Disney characters has ensued and evolved year after year.

Now in its 15th year, the Masterbeat brand produces highly popular dance events throughout the United States, including its annual series of New Year’s Eve events in Los Angeles which are the largest in the country. 

Founded in Madrid in 2008, WE Party has raised the stakes on nightlife with over-the-top productions offering sensory overload of sight and sound with the highest of production values enforced at each event.  Each party has outdone the last, with hi tech staging, cutting edge shows, steamy international dancers and the most stunning crowds. Its groundbreaking use of lighting, lasers and LED, alongside custom made visuals, create a visual feast for the clubber.   WE Party is known as the Rolls Royce of event experiences from Ibiza to Los Angeles, Moscow to Zurich – and now – Orlando!

One Magical Weekend began producing the weekend’s most popular annual event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark, “Riptide” in 2009 and is now growing into a full weekend of events with WE Party Wash on Saturday and Retro T at Epcot© on Sunday.

WE Party WASH takes place Saturday, June 1 at Disney’s EPCOT© World Showplace.  Doors open at 9 pm.  Tickets and weekend passes for available now at and
