The Gangs of Disneyland

disney gangs

Gangs roam Disneyland. Turf wars and occasional fisticuffs occur however Disney tolerates these activities.

Fashioned like biker gangs, these Disney gangs have vests, patches, probation and initiation rites. At last count, there are almost 100 separate gangs. It’s all fun and games until some gangs interact. Especially if they’re “DUI” or “Disney Under the Influence”. Yes, Virginia , Disneyland has places where beer is sold. These folks take Disneyland very, very seriously. With Park Passes in hand, they roam the park. They have been known to “claim” certain park benches or areas in the Park. “The Main Street Elite” for example claim um…Main Street.

There are many Disney social groups. The “Bikers” admit that they are on the weird end of the spectrum and like to emphasize that they there benign. They conduct fund raisers. Disneyland itself tolerates them because their number one rule is it fact, Disneyland’s number one rule.

“Do not damage the Disney Fantasy”

Gangs have sung to children on their First Visit. They pick up trash. Their code of conduct demands everyone follow park rules and not become “Treasured Guests”, Disney’s code word for disruptive visitors. Most “gangs” can be seen pushing strollers as they bring their kids to experience the “Magic of Disney”

How Bad Ass can you be pushing a stroller?

The Dark Side

Like people everywhere, there are assholes that screw up the Good Times for everyone. A civil lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court has revealed a dark undercurrent to the pastime. Of course they did, it is California. The head of one club has accused another of using gangster-like tactics to try to collect “protection” money for a charity fundraiser at the park. The walk was due to take place on September 11, 2016, to benefit families of the firefighters killed during 9/11.

It sounds like a Mob movie set in a theme park. The Main Street Fire Station 55 accused the White Rabbits of extortion, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Stop laughing.

Apparently, the White Rabbits offered to provide security for the fundraiser parade the Fire Station 55ers were holding for the low, low price of $500. That triggered the Rabbits and the fur flew.

Do you belong to one of these Disneyland social groups. If so, we’d love to hear from you in the comments below. Represent.

MOUSEKETEER FOUND DEAD

The State Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed last month that a body found April 6 at the Oregon home shared by Dennis Day, 76, and his husband, Ernie Caswell, belonged to the child star.

Caswell suffers from “age-related memory loss” and has been living at a care facility. Prior to Day’s disappearance, Caswell had fallen in the couple’s home and been hospitalized, and reported his husband missing after he realized that Day had not been to visit him in several weeks, according to Day’s family.

Last seen in July, 2018, walking to visit friends, Day’s remains were found in the couple’s home in Phoenix, Oregon on April 4th 2019. Captain Timothy Fox of the Oregon State Police said it took some time for them to identify the remains because of their poor condition, which prevented them from using dental records or DNA. The cause of death is unknown. Citing an ongoing investigation, Police have not revealed where on the property Day’s body was found.

According to the Mail Tribune, warrants issued last week accuse Wanda Diane Garcia, 57, of Medford, and Lori Ann Declusin, 34, of White City, of felony unauthorized use of Day’s 1990s model Ford Escort after they were stopped in the vehicle last July 26.

In addition, Garcia is charged with first-degree theft after allegedly taking and selling a brooch on July 19 that belonged to Day.

According to the criminal charge, Garcia, Declusin and a third person were allegedly stopped July 26 driving Day’s car. No arrests were made at the time but Garcia was cited for driving with a suspended license and the car was impounded, reports the Mail Tribune.

Garcia pleaded not guilty to the charges related to Day but remained in the Jackson County jail Monday with bail listed at $20,000, according to online records.

Declusin also entered a plea of not guilty and was released on her own recognizance, reports KOBI.
