This year, high school graduates were not able to celebrate their successes at the Disneyland Resort. Unfortunately, next year will be the same. The Disneyland Resort has officially canceled the 2021 Grad Nites that were originally planned for May and June next year.

Here were the planned dates for 2021:

  • May 14, 15 ,19, 21, 22, 26, 27
  • June 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 18

If you look at the Disney Youth Programs website, you can find Disney’s official statement on the cancellations. We have the statement below.

Thank you for your interest in Grad Nite 2021 at the Disneyland Resort. The recently released state guidelines related to theme parks put us in limbo regarding a reopening timeline in the foreseeable future, and therefore we are unable to move forward with Grad Nite 2021.

We know how disappointing this will be to the many graduates who were looking forward to celebrating at the Disneyland Resort, and we thank you for your understanding during these challenging and unprecedented times. We look forward to celebrating your students in years to come.

We are incredibly saddened that Disney has had to cancel the 2021 Grad Nites. This is something high school seniors look forward to from the time they start high school. To get so close and have your celebrations canceled is a feeling that we hope does not have to go on for yet another year.

To help stop the spread of COVID-19 and help bring more magic to the world, please wear your mask, wash your hands frequently, and social distance whenever possible. Magic can return, but it is our duty to make the world safe again!
