Say goodbye to Bats Day


Travel Play
By Marla Jo Fisher |

A popular unofficial Disneyland event that annually attracts thousands of devotees of the Goth lifestyle will be scaled back and most elements eliminated after Sunday’s final event, its founder says.

“Bats Day” began 20 years ago as a simple meetup at Disneyland park of like-minded Goth fans, but grew in spooky popularity over the decades to include a full-fledged convention, with hotel lodging, private dinner, concert, gala, marketplace and photos on the steps of Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion.

By organizer estimates, 7,000 people attended last year, including hard-core Goths and also people who just liked the quirky fashion. Disneyland doesn’t officially sanction private social clubs in the park, but neither does it ban them in most cases. Bats Day was one of the earliest fan meetups, attracting people who like death rock, Steampunk and dark genres of music and dress.

“We just can’t afford to do it anymore,” event founder Noah Korda, said. “The tax laws have changed.”

Korda, 47, a designer from Van Nuys, canceled all the elements of this year’s weekend, except for a Under Armour UA Resistor 3 No Show 6Pack White/Graphite Sale Discounts 9o6cge
meetup at the park on Sunday, May 6 and a 7 p.m. “ The Final Wake ” on Saturday at the Hyatt Regency Orange County for those who want to say goodbye.

“We do this out of the kindness of our hearts,” Korda said about the annual event. “Any money we make gets rolled into the next year.”

Former Bats Day sponsor David Markland, promoter of the Midsummer Scream Halloween-themed event in Long Beach in July, said he’s “in denial” about the annual marketplace being canceled, but he understands as a promoter himself why it might not be feasible to operate it anymore.

“It’s a lot of work to put these things on,” Markland said. “Even though he said it’s the last one, I hope something can come in and take its place.”

Disneyland officials declined to comment, saying they were not involved with the event.

Saturday night’s “wake” at the Hyatt is open to all, Korda said. It’s free with a no-host bar. Sunday’s meetup will include a scaled-down group photo by the Sleeping Beauty Castle at 7 p.m. He said he plans to stage Bats Day in the future as a simple once-a-year meetup, so Goths can still get together. Meanwhile, those who are so inclined can meet Saturday night to mourn.

“The wake is a small get-together that’s free and for all ages,” Korda said. “I felt it was my responsibility to have it.”

My daughter is onto me. As I read bedtime stories to her, sometimes I’ll stop, point to a word, and in my most convincing voice, and say, “Hmm, I don’t know this one. C-A-P? Can you help me?”

The almost-five-year-old, not falling for this nonsense at all , will then say to me, “Mom, just read it.” And I’ll keep reading. Like a chump.

How to Throw a Cheap Dinner Party: Appetizers

I am fully confident she will learn to read when she learns to read, but as a parent, I sometimes wonder if I should be trying to speed up the process. I’ve followed the advice of friends and purchased BOB Books for beginning readers, and I often prompt her to sound words out. I can tell that she almost gets it, but I can also tell that I’m not much help. So when Daniel T. Willingham, a professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and the author of Raising Kids Who Read , told me that parents don’t need to worry about teaching young kids the mechanics of reading—and in fact, he warns against doing so—I felt free.

Parents, it turns out, are pretty crummy reading instructors, especially when they break out the flash cards, handwriting worksheets, rewards charts and other traditional tools we all know and hate. “You don’t know what you’re doing,” Willingham says of parents in general. “If your child encounters real difficulty, there’s a good chance the child will go to school and think, ‘Reading? Oh, that’s that thing Mom and Dad bug me about, and it’s hard for me to figure out, and I don’t like it much.’ Then the teacher has to try and overcome that first negative experience your child has had.”

When parents get stuck on teaching kids how to read, they’re missing their more critical duty, the one that will help put kids on a path to lifelong reading success: teaching kids to love to read. Here’s what to do instead.

Read Them Lots of High-Information Texts

Willingham recently wrote the New York Times op-ed Tommy Bahama Big amp; Tall Big amp; Tall Island Survivalist Cargo Shorts Ocean Deep Cost Online Low Shipping Sale Online O7aPf
and it’s fascinating. In raising readers, it appears that we’re doing it wrong. Parents and teachers tend to think about the learning process in separate blocks. When kids are very young—around 4, 5 or 6—we teach them how to “decode” words. It isn’t until the fourth or fifth grade that we move onto comprehension. That’s too late, Willingham says. “Decoding and comprehension are not the same thing,” he tells me. “There are times when you can read content out loud but not understand what you’re reading.” In the later elementary school grades, as texts become much more complex, comprehension becomes much more difficult. And therefore, children struggle.
