Grad Nite at Disneyland
Spend the night in the Happiest Place on Earth! Grad Nite at the Disneyland Resort is exclusively for High School Graduates and takes place in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
For 2013, Seniors will receive a Park-Hopper Ticket that is good during normal park operating hours, so Seniors will have plenty of time to experience both Parks.
Once Disneyland California Adventure closes, Grad Nite really gets going with a dance party until 3am and an exclusive showing of World of Color! Seniors also get to celebrate in Cars Land!
