    I love Bats Day!! Never had a problem.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    Well I went last year and had a blast so I will be making a special guest appearance this year. Plus watching little goth children running around is adorable!

    Gone but not forgotten.

    It's held in August to purposely shake up the system. It would be expected for goths to be there in October. Instead the park is swarmed in summer at the height of tourist season to raise and eyebrow or 2 and ad shock value. Meh.

    Gone but not forgotten.

    When the goth's all go to the DL for the day and run amuck in gothic attire! AMUCK AMUCK AMUCK!!! You will see them mostly congregate around Haunted Mansion and New Orleans Square. Chances are there will also be head to toe in JACK SKELLINGTON merch!

    Gone but not forgotten.

    Re: Bat's day 2007

    I've been before. It didn't seem that crowded to me. Everyone was behaving like anyone normally would at DL. My mother was shocked at the outfits, but by the end of the day she was more relaxed about everything. To be fair I didn't tell her it was bats day, because I knew she would not want to go and everyone else wanted to go. I told her as we were entering the park. She did wear black though....

    i remember reading a goth mag about 8 years ago and there was an article about goth day. it said they were told by CMs that they behaved much better than the visitors on raver day haha.

    in defense of the ravers, i'm sure it's hard to behave when you're

    tisk tisk if you get that joke haha

    Re: Bat's day 2007

    I'm finding out there are more Bats Day attendees among the Micechat ilk than I previously anticipated - thought I might be the only one.

    I've been proudly attending Bats Day since its inception, and can say without hesitation that they are well behaved and unthreatening to other guests - they're just more enthusiastic than your average park attendee.

    Most of us have always resented the fact that Bats Day falls during the hottest time of the year. The date is chosen and defended by the original organizer, Noah, whom we mostly refer to as "The Troll." He chooses it because it's the first Sunday when APs are no longer blocked out, and seasonally it gives more younger attendees a chance to join the fun.

    Backstory: the first year was a total fluke. It was organized by the promoters of the nightclubs "Release the Bats" and "Absynthe," who distributed flyers and word among their regular attendees that they should all meet at Disneyland on this particular day. I only knew of it because I was interning on a gothic/industrial college radio show at the time.

    Then suddenly there were over 60 of us going on the Haunted Mansion at the same time. The organizers were not expecting a turnout of that magnitude - we were all stoked.

    It just became a thing from then on.

    Bats Day, though I attend it because my friends go, has lost most of its original charm for me. It is no longer the anomalous novelty it was for the first three years. And I'm no longer on the market, as it were, so there's no use using it as a spooky singles day (which doesn't stop the rest of you). The thing is, I can recite the script to every ride backwards and forwards without mumbling or being ambiguous about a single word. I used to be the one person in the foyer of Mansion who could recite along with Paul Frees with impressive synchronicity (is that a word?). Now you have hundreds of spookyfruits and rivetheads who, bless them for their enthusiasm, just kind of mumble vaguely and then pipe up when they get to the words "... find a way out!" or "...there's always my way." To me, that's like watching someone fold a road map incorrectly and having my mouth taped shut and hands tied behind my back.

    Anyway, I don't typically do the mass ride of Mansion at 8pm anymore. But the event, in general, is still of no small amusement to me. Last year we created a spotting game that had to do with finding as many parasols or top-hats as possible. We gave up after an hour because they were easier to spot than Mickey Ears - Savvy? Plus I met the girl I'll probably end up marrying eventually at Bats Day, so it'll always have that.

    I'm actually touched at how accepting and understanding all of you... "normal" people are about Bats Day.

    I've lost whatever the point of my post was... oh well. Bats Day. Good wholesome fun. Part of a balanced breakfast.

    Re: Bat's day 2007

    we went to our first bats day last year and it was such an awesome time for two reasons:

    1. bats day its self, what a well planned and fun event!

    2. i had just discovered micechat the week before, saw Sadako's infamous video of 2 hooligans caught trying to steal the wicker briefcase from the attic scene in the HM, and just happened to start talking with Fishbulb at the hub (with no clue it was the weekly micechat meet) who introduced me to Sadako in all her catsuited glory....bats day was the true beginning of my MiceChat experience

    i wish we could go this year, but we're saving up for our big 11 day trip to so cal in october for Haunt and whatever else we end up doing
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,
    -=Is It October Yet?=-
