Ever wonder what would happen if Disneyland had a 24-hour rave? Every Kandy kid, EDM fan and old-school raver would unite for a historic, glowstick dance-a-thon. E-tards would finally get the chance to ask Mickey Mouse, "Have you seen Molly?" Electro junkies have gathered in stadiums, water parks,harbor ports, convention centers and enormous state parks, so what makes Disneyland so farfetched? Here are our five reasons why the Happiest Place on Earth would make local ravers the happiest people on earth if they decided to open their gates for a full day of dance music.

1. Designated Themes Already Exist

Yes, dubstep claims Tomorrowland for this event. The alien-like sounds of future being projected from such artist like Nero, Magnetic Man and 12th Planet go together like Winnie the Pooh and the 1990s. Insomniac Events, the leader in American EDM festivals, has already brought us Nocturnal Wonderland, Beyond Wonderland, Escape from Wonderland and White Wonderland. Time for a little Alice in Wonderland perhaps? These supreme dance parties hold multiple stages, hosting coinciding themes. Disney is already cooperating in that department thanks by having famous themed sectors like Frontierland, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Toontown ready to go. In this format, we could see a rave inside of a rave.

2. Cast Members Were Into the Dress-Up Thing Long Before Ravers

Upcoming Events

Disney is the true champion of having a devoted squad of costumed performers and staff. With a plethora of astonishing dancers, having performances with DJs isn't just a natural idea, it's necessary for the continuation of mankind. Can you imagine Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck, Tigger, and the rest of the crew dancing to Skrillex, Tiesto, Avicii, Rusko or Daviud Guetta? Wonderful...

  3. Disneyland's Rides are Already Raves Unto Themselves

Carnival rides can bump a rave up to a whole new level of greatness. Showcasing Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Alice in Wonderland and its other, many trips (Mr. Toad's Wild Ride? FUUUUUUUCK...) would be the new bench-mark for EDM festival attractions. Event attendees could listen to the likes of electronic rock band, Pendulum's, "Crush" while racing (or in this case, probably rolling) though a galactic adventure on Space Mountain. It also gives waiting for the drop a new, very literal, meaning.

4. Disney's Production Chops Put All Raves Ever Held to Shame

From the jaw-dropping spectacle of Fantasmic fireworks to the big-budget innovations of Mickey's Soundsational Parade, Disney captivates every person's inner child. Can you  Imagine if Insomniac throwing an EDC-style event with Disney money behind it? We're guessing that massive would have some, uh, massive potential.

5. The Hallucinating World of Disney

Disneyland is a realm where Neon lights, giant Mario world mushrooms, the Alice in Wonderland ride, and a haunted mansion filled with Acid effects already in place. No need for hallucinating further more, yet this is what a veteran raver depends on while having a 'shroom withdrawal. Walt and the rest of the imagineers unquestionably constructed the happiest place on earth under the influence of psychedelics. The most common dance drugs Molly (Ecstasy), Acid, Cocaine, and Weed will set Disneyland ravers into the fifth dimension, only to think they were in Mario Party World, There's-No-Tomorrowland, Voices-In-My-Headland and 12-faces-of-Mickeyland. Being starry-eyed is an understatement.
