Disney Grad Night Reunion

Relive a blast from the past this summer with Disneyland After Dark’s newest after-hours party – Grad Night Reunion. Whether you graduated from high school sixty years ago or will just be receiving your diploma in the coming weeks, you’re invited to a night of carefree fun celebrating six decades of graduates!  Attend this reunion party on select dates in June 2022 at Disney California Adventure.

Early Park Entry

Join grads of all ages on June 23, 28 and 30, 2022. Tickets are on sale now! While the event does not officially begin until 8:00PM, guests with a valid ticket to Grad Night Reunion will be able to enter Disney California Adventure beginning at 5:00PM. With the park remaining open until midnight, that gives guests up to 7 hours to enjoy all of the food, attraction, characters, and special event offerings!

Good Beats And Fun Eats

No matter which decade you celebrated your graduation, you’ll find live music, dance parties, and pep rallies to bring you back to the good ol’ days of high school. Disneyland After Dark: Grad Night Reunion also promises to offer some food that you might have found in your high school cafeteria! What meal from your cafeteria are you hoping Disney recreates for this event?

Costumes Encouraged

Adults are normally prohibited from wearing costumes in Disney’s parks, but for Grad Night Reunion, themed wardrobe selections are encouraged! Break out your old letter jacket or uniform jersey to show your school spirit or dress for the decades in retro-inspired fashion! Keep in mind there are certain restrictions when wearing a costume for this event.

  • All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent and may not contain any items that resemble (or could easily be mistaken for) an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground (e.g., full-length Princess dresses)
  • Guests ages 14 and older may not wear a mask or headgear that fully covers the face
