Grad Nites Are Returning to Disneyland Resort!

Grad Nites are a right of passage for many seniors in California. What better way to step into adulthood than experiencing the magic of childhood one more time?

In both 2020 and 2021, Grad Nite did not take place at Disneyland. The good news is that the after hours party is returning this year! Here are all of the details, from Disney Imagination Campus:

When we missed sharing the Disneyland Resort Grad Night experience with the Classes of 2020 and 2021, we were determined to bring back the experience soon to the many future graduates who were looking forward to celebrating at the Disneyland Resort.

After being closed for over a year, magic is back at the Disneyland Resort! We were thrilled to reopen our theme parks on April 30th, 2021, inviting California Residents to step into the magic once again.

Our momentum continues with the return of Grad Nite 2022 at the Disneyland Resort. High school seniors coming with their school can soon enjoy unforgettable attractions, savor amazing treats and eats, capture fun photos and cherish special magical moments in one of their final nights of high school with their friends at the Disneyland Resort Grad Nite 2022.

Save the Dates! Disneyland Resort Grad Nite 2022 returns on the following select dates in May and June 2022:

May 13, 14, 18, 20, 21, 25, 26, 31

June 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 17

Three ticket options will be available for Grads to have more time, flexibility and access as they celebrate this monumental experience at the Disneyland Resort:

The first ticket option is the Disneyland Grad Nite Private Party Experience at Disney California Adventure park. After 9 p.m., Grads get exclusive access to Disney California Adventure park as it transforms into an immersive, once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Grads will get to enjoy this evening event with other Grads. ($89 per person)

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
