To Our Gay Days Family, Friends and Guests,
Our concern for the health and safety of our guests, vendors, sponsors, and staff is of utmost importance. For the past month, the Gay Days staff has been monitoring the spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States and the world. In partnership with our Gay Days Host Hotel, Margaritaville Resort, and adhering to the Federal, state, local and CDC guidelines, we have rescheduled the Gay Days 30th Anniversary event (originally scheduled for June 2 to 8, 2020). It will become Gay Days Halloween, and take place Tuesday, October 27 to Monday, November 2, 2020.
After careful consideration, we are presenting several options for a one-time change for those of you that have previously made reservations or ticket purchases. Due to this unprecedented event, Gay Days will absorb all fees associated with changes to your reservation or orders regardless of the option you select.
For guests that have room or cottage reservation at the Gay Days Host Hotel, Margaritaville Resort Orlando, or at our Gay Days co-host hotels (Clarion Suites and Days Inn by Wyndham).
OPTION 1 - Move your full reservation to the Gay Days Halloween 2020 event at the Margaritaville Resort Orlando. Halloween falls on the Saturday of this weekend and we have many new events planned.
OPTION 2 - Move your full reservation to Gay Days 2021 scheduled for June 1 – 7, 2021. Our host hotel will once again be the Margaritaville Resort. You are guaranteed your room type and the 2020 rates will be honored in 2021.
We know some are struggling financially, so these next options are also available.
OPTION 3 - Move a portion or just the deposit amount of your Gay Days 2020 hotel room/cottage payment to hold your room/cottage for Gay Days 2021. Gay Days will refund the remaining balance and NOT charge any refund fees. This option guarantees your room/cottage type and 2020 rates. Payments for 2021 room or cottage balances will begin February 2021.
OPTION 4 - Ask for an entire refund. We hope you choose one of the previous options, which will benefit us all, but Gay Days will NOT charge any refund fees if you choose OPTION 3 or OPTION 4. This has been a trying time for all, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you. If you do choose OPTION 4 and plan on returning in 2021, you do stand a chance to not get the type of room you prefer, or a room at all. Also, room or cottage deposits and room or cottage rates will be higher in 2021.
We ask that you let us know your decision by or before April 30, 2020. Gay Days Halloween 2020 rooms and cottages will go on sale May 1, 2020, and Gay Days 2021 rooms and cottages will go on sale June 1, 2020.
For guests that have purchased advanced tickets to any of the Gay Days pool parties or other Gay Days special events.
OPTION 1 - Move the purchase of your tickets to either Gay Days Halloween 2020, or Gay Days 2021.
OPTION 2 - Ask for a complete refund for these tickets. Gay Days will NOT charge any refund fees.
We will be communicating via email, so please be patient as our staff continues to work with you to finalize the option you choose. Follow us on www.gaydays.com and social media for the latest updates (Facebook and Twitter).
We know that this is a difficult time for many, on behalf of the entire Gay Days family, please stay safe and healthy, we look forward to seeing you at one of our future events.
Thank you from the Gay Days Staff
