I found this article and thought it hilarious...
http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-disneyland-social-clubs-20180209-story.html

Who knew that Disney fans could be so gangsta!

I've never seen this phenomena before but I note they only really kicked off in 2013, so I haven't been there much since then - has anyone else seen the groups where bikie-style jackets in the parks?

I haven't seen the jackets but but have seen the big groups of families and friends all wearing the same t-shirts.

I feel like this is a bit of a "this is why we can't have nice things" scenario where a few people taking things too far are going to cause problems, arguments and confrontations that will end with the whole concept banned. I don't care what they claim, having a large group of people all wearing the same jacket trying to take over a ride (or restaurant?) would be intimidating to a lot of people and especially kids.
