NEWS: WDW Pulling Plug on Gradnights

Postby DJeXeL » Thu Mar 10, 2011 10:01 am

This spring will see the last Grad Nite celebrations at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World announced Wednesday.

Disney World says the increase in theme park attendance in the spring has made scheduling the after-hours, separate-ticket event for high school seniors increasingly difficult. As an alternative, Disney will offer Florida school groups a special one-day, one-park ticket for $55 valid any time during the year.

"Over the years, we've signficantly increased the frequency and types of programming offered specifically for students," Walt Disney World spokeswoman Andrea Finger said. Sports competitions, performing art workshops, festivals and educational programs give students access to Disney "virtually any time of the year," she said.

Makes you wonder if DLR will follow suit in a couple years.

Bad news: Crap. Grad Nite there seemed fun.
Good News: Looks like I can still go to DLR's next year.

I'm just surprised they lasted this long.

That's crappy...I did Grad Nite at Wonderland back in '95, didn;t ride much, but I had an amazing time. It's that one last hoorah with people you might not see much after that.

I'm also surprised they've lasted this long. The teenagers are terrible, staffing is a nightmare, and they don't spend that much money.

My thoughts exactly. DLR needs to axe theirs as well.

We had "Whoomp There It Is" Tag Team perform at our Grad Nite in '94. I missed the show, spent the night riding the rides.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Jon Secada and PM Dawn for us in '93.

I don't know if they will ever end Disneyland's though.

If they REALLY wanted to save it they could have moved it to MGM but it just doesn't seem worth it.

How about a special high price event in one of the parks for adults 21+ only? That sounds plausible and has potential to make some money from those of us who may like to enjoy the parks in a more adult-friendly atmosphere. Of course, I have no idea how many people in the real world would pay $100 or more for this sort of thing to stay up all night. Just a dream right here.
