Haven Caylor is a ManAboutWorld Global Correspondent, father to two incredibly cute kids and one of our “Gay Traveling Dads.” He and his husband recently took Ammon and Carter to Walt Disney World Resort. Here his update from the “Happiest Place on Earth.”

‘Let the Memories Begin’ … and treasure them in your heart when the awesome adventure is over. Ammon, Carter, Sean, and I spent the 3rd week of September at Walt Disney World Resort.  For 8 adventure-filled days, we spent time in the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the Animal Kingdom. My synoptic advise for Walt Disney World is GO THERE! Save your money, plan your itinerary ( was my all-inclusive helper), go, and ENJOY! I also have 3 other pieces of advice I would like to share.

1) Stay on the Walt Disney World Resort. The use of its monorail and bus system is first rate. I highly recommend the Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Carter, Ammon, Sean, and I stayed there, and it was in a perfect location. We could walk to the Magic Kingdom in less than 10 minutes, and in the evenings if we were leaving from the Magic Kingdom, it was the first stop off the monorail. We had chosen to drive our own vehicle from our home in Chattanooga to Orlando, and when we parked our car upon our Bay Lake Tower arrival, we didn’t touch it again until 8 days later when we returned home.

We recently visited Orlando and met Mikael Audebert, the indefatigable head of Converge Orlando and, a terrific local resource for planning a gay ol’ time in this city of world-famous theme parks and off-the-radar local treasures.

Here he and his boyfriend Mats pose with Trua, one of several killer whales taking part in daily spectacular shows at SeaWorld Orlando.

According to Mikael:

SeaWorld Orlando is one of the several theme parks where being gay and holding hands is A-OK! We visited six parks in four days, kissing, holding hand, and we never heard a single insult once. I loved it! Orlando is a fabulous destination for LGBT individuals all year round. The holidays really have tons to offer. The Christmas show at the magic kingdom was absolutely amazing.
