Disney Announces First-of-its-Kind After Dark Special Event

There’s no better way to wave goodbye to your high school years than to spend your grad night at a Disney Park.

On our Disney Grad Nite, we stayed up all night, danced down Main Street, U.S.A. to the top hits of the 2000s, rode Splash Mountain 4 times in a row without getting out of our log (was not a great idea to get soaking wet at 3:00 a.m.), and stood in line for 2 hours to get on Space Mountain with all 400 of our classmates.

Now, Disney has announced a brand-new event for all Guests seeking some nostalgia!
