FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The 18th Bats Day in the Fun Park® Weekend rematerializes this April/May 2016 with a new dress code, the Happy Haunts Swinging Wake, 2 group meet-ups happening the same weekend and more

Anaheim, California (February, 2016) – The 18th Bats Day in the Fun Park™ weekend is happening again this April 29 - May 1, 2016, with much spooky excitement and some new changes. Among the changes in question is the new dress code now in effect at the Disneyland Resort. The main concern for Bats Day attendees is that anyone over the age of 14 wearing a costume will not be allowed to enter Disneyland. For this reason, we at Bats Day want to remind everyone that Bats Day in the Fun Park is not a “themed dress-up cosplay” meet-up day. It never has been. The dark subculture has a distinctive style of dress, and most people in this subculture wear these types of clothing and outfits every day. Since the earliest days of the event, we have always said that attendees can dress to the nines – just as long as you do not look like, or can be mistaken for, a Character or Cast Member of the Disneyland Resort.

If you are interested in “cosplay” or themed dress-up fun, Bats Day in the Fun Park is glad to announce the return of the Bats Day Happy Haunts Swinging Wake: A Costumed Celebration for its fourth year. The ghosts, goblins and ghoulies have returned once more and are throwing their Swinging Wake again. No mortals are allowed, so for this themed costumed event you need to disguise yourself as your favorite Haunted Mansion character or ghost, spirit or thing from the underworld. Join us in the realm of the supernatural, as the spirits gather for an evening of music, magic and merriment at the Bats Day Happy Haunts Swinging Wake: A Costumed Celebration. The unearthly entertainment has yet to be announced, but we can only imagine that what the spirits are planning will be a haunting good time. Tickets go on sale February 1, 2016, only on the Bats Day website, www.batsday.net, or at the Bats Day Happy Haunts Swinging Wake website, www.happyhauntsswingingwake.com This event will sell out!

We are also well aware that this year another group meet-up event has been scheduled on the same weekend as Bats Day. We have no idea why this other event was moved from its normal range of dates (March/April) to the very same weekend in May as Bats Day. But as we say here in the Bats Day Camp Cave, there is plenty of Spooky Disney Magic for all. (It’s worth noting that this year marks Bats Day in the Fun Park’s 18th event. For our first nine years, Bats Day was held in August, with the tenth event moved for a one-time special date in November, to welcome Jack Skellington to the Haunted Mansion. And then, for the last seven years, the Bats Day in the Fun Park weekend has generally been the first Sunday in May. We like to give lots of advance notice of our scheduling: Our future event dates are first announced on our website, www.batsday.net, about two weeks after our current event has concluded. A much bigger announcement of the event date is then made about a month after that. #COMEGETSPOOKY

An estimated 7,000+ people are expected to attend the 2016 18th annual Bats Day in the Fun Park weekend. Scheduled events for 2016 include:

  • The Bats Day Happy Haunts Swinging Wake: A Haunted Mansion-themed costume ball where guest must wear a costume of their favorite character from the Haunted Mansion or as a ghost or spirit
  • The Bats Day Black Market: A spooky shopping experience with over 70 unique vendors – you are bound to find something for the spooky thing in your life here
  • Gallery999: A Haunted Mansion-themed art show
  • The Bats Day in the Fun Park trip to Disneyland, CA – the world-famous event that wraps up the weekend, where attendees are encouraged to participate in many photo opportunities and meet-up locations, culminating in a spooktacular Photo Event and Ride Experience through Disneyland’s classic Haunted Mansion attraction

Bats Day in the Fun Park attracts people from all dark subculture genres and walks of life, from Deathrock to Goth, Industrial to Steampunk, Rockabilly to Psychobilly, Halloween and anywhere in between, all for the love of Disneyland. Over the years, we have met quite a number of people from outside the subculture that enjoy attending, too. We welcome everyone to join in the spooky fun! Bats Day in the Fun Park has grown from a humble group of 80 friends in 1999 to over 7,000 guests from all over the world in 2015. This year, we hope to shatter new records and continue the growth of this dark subculture event.
