Every year, high school seniors look forward to traveling to The Happiest Place on Earth to celebrate their final days as high schoolers. Grad Nites take place throughout May and June at Disney California Adventure Park and includes fun events like dance parties, while also keeping a number of rides open for the students to experience.

Unfortunately, the theme parks were closed during the 2020 graduation season and strict COVID health and safety protocols practices were still in place for the 2021 season, so grads were unable to celebrate at Disneyland for two years in a row. However, the popular event is making a comeback for the 2022 season, and grads around the country can dig out their mouse ears in preparation.
