  • [Question] Beaded Armband Wearing Kids at DL

    Went to the park yesterday... DL was replete with youngish, gothish people who were all wearing some kind of variation of EXTREMELY intricate beaded arms. The beads were all kid's play beads in very bright colors. Seemed to be some plastic trinkets affixed to the armband contraptions too.

    So, what gives? I'm guessing this is some variation of gothdom, but I have never encountered anything like it.

    Can someone educate me?

    they are ravers.
    the beads are meant to be braclets that are exchanged when you met someone new as a friendship braclet.
    they refer to them as kandy
    and while yes some of them are intoxicated it would not be fair to judge a whole because of a couple dumb kids.
    feel free to be friends with me on my other sites

      Rave Day, although the main one is usually in June.
      Evidently, their is a Winter Rave Day, which you witnessed.

      There's also a "Snuggy Cult day", which apparently fell on Rave day this year:

              I saw them everywhere also yesterday. To me the bead things look like they would be heavy and uncomfortable, but maybe that's just an illusion. Some of them had A LOT on.

                Thanks for the info, though to clarify I actually made no illusion or assumption about them being dumb kids or intoxicated.

                  I have never worn that many, but I wear quite of few of them at a time since I have a lot of beads left over from the summer after-school care program I worked at a few months ago. They're not very heavy at all, really and I often forget they're there at all. I imagine even if they are heavy, they must be used to it.

                    I saw a bunch yesterday too. What confused me was the raver dude that had to be in his mid to late 40s. Odd choice for that stage in your life.

                            It's not. It's just a day to go to the park and meet new people. Like any other "day".

                                i was there when the june rave day happened. Its interesting to see that Disney has not banned or asked that the beads be kept to a minimum. In june several of those kids kept getting there long strings of beads on benches or fencing. One kid caught his beads on one of the horse poles on mainstreet. and beads flew everywhere. The same person was wearing somekind of shaggy pant that dragged on the floor.
                                well to make the story short the beads got caught, the kids tripped on the pants and beads where allover the place just before parade time. Castmembers had to close off a large section of viewing area to clean up the beads because a few guest kept slipping on them. the parade was even held off a bit to clean the mess up. meanwhile the kids that caused the problem just walked awya and thought it was funny that one of them had dumped hazardous little plastic beads allover mainstreet and sidewalk.

                                i have no problem against ravers but there needs to be a limit of what should be allowed within a heavy foot traffic park that could cause problems.

                                I remember when Disney had dresscode. If they see that something could be hazardous a least point it out to the guest

                                  I got evac'd off of TSMM yesterday evening and was on the ride with some ravers. They were probably either 15 or 16 and I did see alot of other ones. If you ask me I think it's a bit young, but that's just me. I didn't really have a problem with them I just thought it was a bit creepy. I had to ride next to a couple on Star Tours too.

                                    I wanted to be there but alas I'm blocked out until next year. I don't understand why people have issues with ravers. We live by the code of PLUR (Peace, love, unity, respect). I mean, I have issues with others at the park but I don't call them names or get "creeped out" by them.

                                      I went on the normal Rave Day this year, I didn't know about it and there were a LOT of them.

                                        I would have LOVED to have seen them! Individuality!!

                                        At my age I appreciate anyone who bucks the system a little. Guess I'll always be a child of the 60's.

                                        OK I just Googled "Ravers". As I had suspected, their roots are in the 60's. Their creed seems pretty cool to me.
