    Re: Goth Day Nov 9th at DLR

    I've done every Bats Day since the first a decade ago. It's a ton of fun. Now, this is the first year they're moving it to November - it has historically taken place during the hottest week of August, which makes little sense if you take into account the way goths traditionally dress.

    Expect somewhere between 1,000 to 2,000 goths to show up, which makes things look really weird to the inexperienced tourists. Nothing, really, in comparison to the amount of "normal" people who will be there.

    Many Micechatters find Bats Day fun. A few do not, of course, but on the other hand many of us cross over into both crowds.

    In other words, I suggest you go. It's always fun.

    I've been there once when it was Bat's Day (unplanned. it just happened that way). I was offended by the indecency of a few of them (very few), but for the most part, it just adds to the entertainment factor of being at Disneyland. Esp. if you like to people watch. We even saw a whole family: Grandma, Mom and Granddaughter all decked out in full goth attire.

    The crowds didn't seem to be any worse than they normally would have. Besides, it's Disneyland. You'll have fun either way.

    And I mean no offense to anyone by any of these statements.

    I have been a couple times and and it's a hoot. But I was into some punk/goth stuff back in the 80's. Can't find any of my old gear - not that it would fit me!

    I am so glad it's been moved to November! The dark, multi-layered attire was incredibly hot and uncomfortable looking in August...

    Traditionally there's an 8pm group ride. At this time the headcount is taken.

    Re: Goth Day Nov 9th at DLR

    I've always wanted to but last year a few of my friends who were going flat-out wouldn't let me come. I'll probably go this year then as I don't talk to them anymore :P.

    This is the cooler of the "dress up" days. Harry Potter day and Raver day are on the same day but, er, I don't know of many people who go all out for that.
    dreams. come. true.

    I love Bat's Day. I try to go every year just so I can see everyone. Some of the women are so totally awesome looking....makes me wish I was young and skinny again.

    The Ravers are definitely a more "colorful" group, and they do attract a sizeable crew.

    One thing I wonder, with DL's rule of "No costumes on adult guests", some of those bat Day outfits are questionable, DL must be a little lenient on that day, as long as individuals don't cause any issues. And with Bat day immediately after Halloween this year, I wonder if some will be tempted to get some bargain halloween outfits.

    I was just about to say the same thing. Now I know the people who go to bat's day are not wearing "costumes" as this is how they choose to dress. But when looking at say picture #46 from Darkbeer's collection, I was wondering if DL is more lenient too as this dress requires a hoop skirt and all. I am totally digging her outfit, just curious if DL is more relaxed that day in their "dress enforcement."

    I'll be there this year to people-watch and get some sketching in.

    Hopefully I can convince my cute little friends to dress up... no one would believe it!
