  • Grad Nite- Did anyone ever attend a grad nite?

    I went to a grad nite experience years ago. The park was opened from late night to early in the morning for high school seniors. The guys wore suits and girls wore dresses. Music groups performed on tom sawyer rafts. It was lots of fun. Does this still exist?

      Freak. Grad night is one of my fondest memories about Disneyland. I had so much fun. Its a kids dream... to spend the night locked in DL. i went in 1997 (before the dumb new tomorrowland. there was still the escalator up to the queue for SM) & 1998... anyway I went twice. At the time the Aquabats were one of my fav bands. They were playing on the Tomorrowland stage. They played the grad nite version of "Super Rad" entitled "Super Grad". My friend Joe and I frequented their shows and the band was familiar with us so they let us on stage to sing with them. NICE!
      We didnt have to wear suits or ties but they did enforce a strict dress code that required us to dress nice... like club attire.

        I freakin' loved Grad Nite (2004). It was one of the best experiences I've ever had at Disneyland. It really depends on how big the night is you go on, meaning which other schools go with you. Mine was an all private/Catholic/etc school night, so it wasn't as crowded. The lines were fairly short, except for Matterhorn (the bane of my existence), but that line is always long.
        Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

          I went in '97. I hung out with a friend who had never been there before. We had so much fun. But like Wrdest97 said, it was before the new Tomorrowland opened so there was a lot of construction going on. We didn't get to ride Space Mountain, because the line was incredibly long (I think it went over by the Matterhorn!) We did get to do a lot of rides though. There were bands playing all over and people dancing, but we were more interested in riding rides!

              Grad Nite is one of the things I really looked forward to during senior year. Who wouldn't want to spend the night inside Disneyland Park, getting to ride classic rides with friends. Since you're are in the park with nothing but high school seniors, everyone had good behavior. No one was being oboxious (or, not that I know of), it was great. I envy this next year's Grad Nites. They will not only get to ride Space Mountain (I didn't due to the re-modeling), but they will also get to see first hand, the Rock It Mountain. If you ever get the chance to chaperone for a school for Grad Nite, do it.

                I'm going to sound old. I went in 1990. We still had to wear suits and dresses. Videopolis was still open, so that's where most people hung out. Nu Shooz, Information Society and Beats International (now known as Fatboy Slim) all played.

                It was a great time. My senior prom was at DLH, too. The funny things about grad nite (aside from the fact that I HATE when people misspell night on purpose) was that every bus got checked for alcohol, and around 3:30 a.m., the benched in Tomorrowland started filling up with people who were worn out.

                I'll never forget it. At my little catholic high school in San Bernardino, they set it up so you went to grad night, then graduated the next evening, then had the weekend. so I was drunk for pretty much 72 hours. Oops, shouldn't have written that... OK, well, bye!

                    Looks like I'm the old man here ...... I went in 1982 ....... Strict dress codes, I don't remember any bands. What I do remember is that I started the evening "hanging" with a cute girl I was sweet on and her cute cousin. Unfortunately, we ran into a guy I went to Jr. High with, who was apparently alone, and well, I got ditched by the girls .......

                      I did grad night back in '87. Everybody wore suits and dresses. We were padded down but no metal detectors. I remember watching Wang Chung at the tomorrowland terrace. They had to shut down the haunted mansion early because people were jumping out of their doombuggies.

                        Walt Disney World still has that strict dress code... very strict as of 01...

                        I had to go to Grad bash and walk through metal detectors that my glasses set off!

                              I went this year, '05. It was TONS of fun, but there weren't really ANY live bands. They were playing party music down main street, and the colorful lighting effects they use during the fireworks for the tiki room and electrical parade parts were going on the castle all night. Me and my friends were most obsessed with looking into the abyss of rivers of america at 3:30 in the morning. While waiting in line for Indy, this tall guy would unscrew every light bulb as he passed it, until the Indy line at 4 in the morning got completely pitch dark. Jungle Cruise was amazing at like 4am too!


                              I've heard about the Aquabats playing grad nite. That's boss.
