Disneyland Grad Night 2022 celebrates with all-new fun—here’s what to expect.

The time has finally come—Disneyland announced its first-ever after-dark event! The event will be a Grad Night high school reunion party. It takes place on June 23, 28, and 30, 2022. 

The event includes tons of perks and fun offerings such as shorter wait times for attractions, endless opportunities to dance and groove, and yummy treats. Step into nostalgia and make new memories, too.

Along the typical Disneyland parade route at Grad Night, there will be a moving pep rally led by Mickey’s Glee Club and Goofy’s Dance Team, accompanied by music from the All-American College band.

There will be plenty of opportunities to groove, dance, and sing along throughout the park.

Dance All Night Long in Every Era

In Cars Land, you can find the Route 66 street party. Throw it back to the 60s with a DJ playing hits from the decade such as “Hot Rod” plus a dance instructor teaching classic dances from the 60s.

If modern music is more your thing, in Hollywood Land there will be a dance party with a DJ playing popular present-day tunes, including genres such as hip hop, cumbia, funk, reggae, and punk.

If you’re into disco, the Pacific Wharf is where you want to be! Take this opportunity to sing karaoke all night long with your friends, including the most popular disco hits from the 70s and 80s.

Gourmet Cafeteria Food 

Let’s face it: Sometimes, school campus cafeteria food can be slightly… less-than-appetizing, but at Disneyland, these cafeteria-inspired treats are what you always wanted your school to serve.
