Every year, high school seniors from all over California head down to Disneyland Resort to celebrate their graduation at Disney’s Grad Nite. The night is filled with rides and dancing, great food, and memories that will last forever. It is something that graduates have looked forward to for years, but sadly, were unable to experience over the last couple of years because of the pandemic. So, this year, Disneyland Resort has decided to do something special, not just for this year’s grads, but for graduates from years past.

This June, Disney will be hosting a special Grad Nite 2022 Reunion on June 23, 28, and 30! The fun celebration will celebrate high school graduates from the past six decades. Disney Parks Blog shared more information on the exciting, one-night event:

It’s time to relive the “good-ol’ days” and celebrate a party for the decades at the first-ever Disneyland After Dark: Grad Nite Reunion! Debuting on select nights this June at Disney California Adventure park, you can join in a reunion party filled with dancing, fun and plenty of nostalgia from graduation classes of the last six decades.

From good times to even better dance moves, this separately ticketed Disneyland After Dark event gives you after-hours access to Disney California Adventure after the park closes to day guests, with the opportunity to experience special offerings* not typically available during the day. Enjoy delicious cafeteria-inspired dishes, special character experiences, entertainment, photo opportunities and some favorite attractions (with shorter wait times!) for four hours of fun. Also included with your ticket, you’ll have three additional hours pre-party to mix-in at Disney California Adventure park!
