A Christian group has spent $6500 to fly planes carrying banners that state "Warning Gay Day at Disney", according to reports.
The fly-over plan by anti-gay group Florida Family Association was part of its campaign to "boycott and protest" the annual event at Walt Disney World in Florida, The Wisconsin Gazette said.
"Florida Family Association claims thousands of people enter the park each year during 'Gay Day' only to turn around and leave when they realise gay people and same-sex couples are present," The Gazette said.
"The group says it wants Disney to reschedule Gay Day at night after the park closes."
The Christian group claimed patrons of the event wore T-shirts promoting homosexuality and that they dressed in drag.
"The group also charges that gay couples publicly kiss, hug and grope each other - behaviour the group's leaders believe will turn children gay if they witness it," The Gazette reported.
"The six-day Pride celebration draws about 160,000 people, who spend an estimated $US150 million, to the area to celebrate. Thousands of the event's participants visited Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom on June 4.
"Gay Day started in 1991 when . . . people wore red for visibility during a one-day visit to Disney World. The event has since evolved into today's area-wide celebration."
Gay Day president Chris Alexander-Manley told Orlando's Action 5 News that the economy was improving because of the event."Our crowd behaves better than most convention crowds," Mr Alexander-Manley said.
