Class of 2024 Grad Night

Please read carefully for details for Grad Night. There is a LOT of information, but the blue/red part is the most important.


What? Where? When?

Seniors are to check-in at El Dorado on Friday, June 14 at 12:30pm.  During this time, we will do a bag check before loading onto the bus.  We expect to return to El Dorado on Saturday, June 15 between 2:30-3am.  If your senior leaves their car at school, please advise them to park near the front of the school for safety purposes.


Seniors are NOT allowed to leave the event early.  They must return to El Dorado on the bus.


Ticket, Dining Card & Stuff

Park ticket and a $50 dining card will be given to the seniors on the bus.  Each Attendee attending Grad Nite is responsible for their own ticket throughout the duration of the visit. Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and will not be replaced if lost, destroyed or stolen.


Grad night shirts and cinch bags will be distributed to seniors after graduation ceremony practice.  Please make sure to wear the shirt to Grad Night.


Banned Substances, Cigarettes, E-Cigarettes, etc.

Once we arrive, in conjunction with the Anaheim Police Department, they will be conducting a more thorough screening for banned substances before being allowed into the park. Screenings will include bag searches and the use of drug-sniffing canines.


Please make sure that you understands the importance of not bringing any banned substances or any smoking, vaping, cigarettes, electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), vaping products and any other tobacco products.  It must be left at home or in their car (not the bus). Your actions can have negative consequences for the school in the future.


According to Disney policy: “If any banned substances are found on the bus or in the possession of an Attendee, the matter will be turned over to the Anaheim Police Department for further action. If schools/Attendees violate this policy, the school may be banned from future Grad Nite events. Attending Grad Nite is not a right, it’s a privilege.”



We have created a Remind group for Grad Night attendees.  Please make sure you sign up so you can receive messages during the event.
