Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum, but a life long Disneyland fan. I've been a Grad Nite chaperone at San Gabriel High School these past two years. Just a few subjects to touch on. 2011 Grad nites had only 7 events (12am-6am),the night we went on had close to 20,000 students,parts of the park were closed off,so wait times were like summer weekends. 2010 had 14 nights ,and on our trip only 10,000 students arrived making most rides just "walk on".Hopefully with 20 dates,the hope is that Disneyland will cap these PH/Grad Day/Nite events closer to the 10,000 or less mark.
Grad Nite part (12am - 3am) starts off with a private viewing of "Fantasmic!" for the graduates,so I don't know if the 10:30 showing of "Fantasmic!" would be available.
We will be arriving at 12noon, because our graduation is the previous night.
My biggest concern is security. Dress code is out. Pat downs and complete bag checks(everything dumped into a clear plastic bag) are gone, unless Disney security checks us in the parking lot,or has a separate security area before the ticket booths.Does anybody have any info on this part? Think Leap Day/Night. How did that turn out.
Unfortunately we're going on June 14th! Yes the stupid DCA media day! So NO CarsLand for us! We do get a DCA only return ticket good for one year, but still so disappointed.
