Miley Cyrus will be celebrating her Sweet 16 birthday at the Disneyland Resort this weekend with 5,000 of her fans — plus up to another 30,000 members of Gay Days, an annual gay and lesbian gathering at the Magic Kingdom.
In order to accommodate Miley’s birthday bash, Disneyland will be closing the park to guests not attending the ‘tween star’s party at 5 PM.
A rep for the Disneyland Resort dispelled reports that Gay Days revelers were being shut out because of Miley’s birthday milestone.
“Many groups hold events at the Disneyland Resort and for two to occur at the same time is not uncommon,” a Disneyland rep told Access Hollywood. “Gays Days, which takes place October 3-5, overlaps with Miley Cyrus’ Sweet 16 celebration only on Sunday night, October 5.”
Disneyland plans to accommodate Gay Days’ post-5 PM guests at its sister park.
“Gay Days organizers already had scheduled activities for that evening at Disney’s California Adventure. And, to give our guests more time to enjoy the resort, we have extended operating hours for Disney’s California Adventure until 11:00 PM,” the Disneyland rep added.
As for the Gay Days organization, they remain upbeat about Miley crashing their annual get-together at the happiest place on earth — even hopeful that the “Hannah Montana” star might show for an impromptu performance.
“Yes, Miley Cyrus is having her birthday at Disneyland on Sunday, October 5 and Disneyland will be closing at 5 PM that day,” the organization said on their Web site. “That’s our scheduled day at Disney’s California Adventure so we don’t foresee any changes to Gay Days Anaheim. Although we would love her to come sing for us!”
