It seems that Disney are getting rid of what was a great way for students to celebrate the end of their High School and College education. Grad Nights have been a traditional event held each year to help young people celebrate this momentous time in their lives. But, with the rise in crowd levels at this time of year, Disney have decided to give Grad Nights one more farewell year.
According to the Disney Parks Blog:
“…we will no longer be hosting Disney Grad Nite at the Walt Disney World Resort after this year’s event. With more leisure guests visiting in the springtime, it’s become challenging to schedule special events during April and May. Instead, graduates will have new opportunities to celebrate with us in the parks at more flexible and convenient times.
We’ve recently seen more and more students visiting Walt Disney World as part of a broader senior class trip. And activities such as youth sports competitions, performing arts programs, including performances, workshops and festivals, and educational programs now give teens chances to experience Walt Disney World virtually any time of the year.”
