The Disneyland Resort has cancelled all of their Grad Nite events for 2020 due to the current COVID-19 situation. The late night parties were scheduled to be held at Disney California Adventure on select nights starting May 8th and continuing through June 13.
A statement on the Disney Youth Programs website shared the news:
While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of the unprecedented COVID-19 situation, the safety and well-being of our Guests and Cast Members remain the top priority of the Disneyland Resort. In light of recommendations by school and government officials to limit gatherings for the remainder of the academic year, we are making the difficult decision to cancel Disneyland Resort Grad Nite 2020.
Because Grad Nite events require a substantial amount of planning, coordination and travel, we felt that this was the right decision to make at this time. We know how disappointing this news will be to the many students who were planning to join us this year.
If you are a student or parent who is part of a group that was planning to attend Grad Nite 2020, please consult with your group organizer. We are reaching out to each confirmed group’s contact or travel planner with more information. As we anticipate a heavy volume of inquiries, we appreciate your patience as we work diligently to communicate with everyone.
We look forward to hosting Disneyland Resort Grad Nite next year and for years to come. Information about future events will be shared as soon as it becomes available.
Thank you for your understanding.
