First, they aren’t really gangs at all. The Disneyland Gangs are more like Social Clubs of Disney fans that group together based on interests, attraction loves, or locale. Let’s break down who the Disneyland Gangs are, how to spot them, and if you feel so inclined, how you can join these Disneyland Social Clubs!

What Are The Disneyland Gangs?

Like we said before – they’re not really gangs. But outsiders, or those unfamiliar with them, may perceive them to be gangs, because of the very cool motorcycle-inspired vests, the close kinship of Disney fans, and large gatherings (or ride takeovers as some have noted). There are more than 200 Disneyland Social Clubs (as they prefer to be called), and they all have different likes, personalities, and “mascots.” The Social Clubs can be large families, groups of close friends, or huge 100-200 person clubs that meet up to hang out at the Disney Theme Parks.

Vice carried a story talking about the Disney “Punks of Magic Kingdom” story. While there are rumors of misbehavior, clubs like Main Street Elite and Neverlanders think of the Parks as home and will go to lengths to talk to Cast Members about their day and to notify them if they see rules being broken. Disney Spokesperson Kevin Rafferty went on the record about the groups, saying, “We are fortunate to have Guests who share such a strong affinity for Disneyland Resort.”

In the comments section of [an] OC Weekly story, a reader claiming to be a former Disneyland cast member defended the groups as well. “Many of these social club goers were the nicest guests I ever had interactions with,” the commenter wrote. “[They] always made a point to stop and say hello to ask how my shift was going so far, or to just talk about anything Disney. Yes, their ‘look’ is unconventional for Disneyland, but their love of Disneyland is their best quality.”

After researching, we found the founders of the first Social Club may have been The Neverlanders. They were the first real group with social-club-style identity. After that came The Hitchhikers and the Main Street Elite. From there, many similar groups spawned until we get to the incredible numbers present today in the Disney Parks.

Different Social Clubs have different rules regarding dues, vest patches, membership locations and even Annual Passes. Find a club that speaks to you, and reach out to them!

List of Disneyland Social Clubs

There are probably more Disneyland Gangs or Disneyland Social Club groups than meets the eye. This amazingly updated list “of alphabetical, somewhat accurate, ever-changing list of social clubs” comes from the Social Clubs of Disney website, and was last updated in 2020. There are many other clubs that have been disbanded or have not been heard from in a few years and have therefore been marked inactive as far as social clubs go.

Below, you will find both Disneyland anchored social clubs (Like the White Rabbits Social Club) and Walt Disney World Resort fan clubs, with some going bicoastal in an effort to really enjoy the US theme parks.

Looking for a more Disney World Social Club instead? There are a few groups out there that frequent both coasts, and some that focus on Florida, including the Adventurers Social Club. They bill themselves as a Walt Disney World Resort club “based on Walt’s values and spreading magic all around the world.” It was founded in May 2016, and can be found on Instagram.

The Bangarang Babe group also look to frequent WDW, though their home base is Southern California and Disneyland. Check out their social media and fall in love with their style, “the sparkliest, most colorful, most faaaaabulous SC [social club] in Disneyland! Established 4/2014.”

How to Join the Disneyland Social Clubs

This is where the Disney Social Clubs might behave like a motorcycle gang. The groups are typically close-knit, even if their size is large, and they want to get to know you! After sending a message (like a DM on Instagram), the group may ask you questions, and label you as a “prospect.” This means you are a “prospective member” of the group and may go through a trial period. Social Clubs of Disney explains this process further:

Disney Social Clubs are a well established community of Disney loving people, and we pretty much guarantee that if you look, you’ll find a club you want to join. Use these patches as your jumping off point, when you see one you like, click on it and check out that Club’s information. Every club has different rules, guidelines, and way that they’re run, so it’s easy to find one that has interests similar to yours. Then all you have to do is reach out, and meet up.

Prospecting is an incredibly important part of the SC community. Clubs respect people who take the time and make the effort to find a club that they fit into. Unfortunately most people don’t want to take the time to get know the clubs. They just want a patch. They see themselves in the park, wearing a patch that looks cool, and don’t understand that this is a true community, and that the best way to get the respect of the community is to get in line, wait your turn, and earn your place. You earn your patch, you earn respect.
