For its fifth year, the Ghost and Spirits come to party at this Swinging Wake. 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!

Bats Day in the Fun Park has become a spooky phenomenon, which has paved the way for a number of other group meet-ups and social groups. 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 2016. This year, we hope to shatter new records and continue the growth of this dark subculture event.
An estimated 7,000+ people are expected to attend the 2017 19th annual Bats Day in the Fun Park weekend. Scheduled events for 2017 include:
- The Bats Day Happy Haunts Swinging Wake: A Haunted Mansion-themed costume ball where guests must wear a costume of their favorite character from the Haunted Mansion or as a ghost or spirit
- The Nightmare before Bats Day—Dinner Meet & Greet: An intimate three-course dinner held in a haunted ballroom, for only 30 people.
- The Bats Day Black Market: A spooky shopping experience with over 75 unique vendors—you are bound to find something for the spooky thing in your life here
- 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 as they can, culminating in a spooktacular Photo Event and Ride Experience through Disneyland’s classic Haunted Mansion attraction
