Grad Nite at Disneyland dates listed for 2013

It looks like Disneyland has decided to list Grad Nites dates very early for 2013 which may help with peoples planning when visiting Disneyland.

Other info to be aware of is ....

The Grad Party is moving to California Adventure Park for 2013 and a 1 day Parkhopper will still be included in the Package for Graduating High School Seniors likely making those dates more busy at both parks during the daytime as well.

Well since you can't walk for a long period of time just having foot surgery you can go to guest services as soon as you walk into the park on your left hand side by the firehouse. Ask them for a guest assistance card and tell them about you just having your foot surgery and you can't stand for a long period of time . They will give you a GAC which will allow you to enter thru the exit of every ride . That should be helpful.

If you are planning to visit Disneyland with your family in May on a day Disneyland hosts one of its Grad Night parties, prepare yourself for very large groups of unsupervised teenagers and middle school students. We were just at Disneyland 5/16, 17, and 18, and Saturday night was a nightmare. Along with the grad night groups, there were a large number of middle school groups. The crowd levels were unbelieveable! One middle school's group teeshirt said, "Disneyland Without Parents -- Priceless." At times it was just a nightmare navigating through the crowds. If there had been a medical emergency, or if a fight had broken out, I have no idea how Disneyland staff could handled it. Along with the risks these crowd levels present to other guess, Disneyland is putting their own workers at risk.

Sounds like the extra "middle School" children were what made it extra crowded at Disneyland, likely those were some sort of group competition in the area which can make it more crowded at Disneyland.

There was a Choir event on last week, hence all the school groups with the music tees. This is quite separate to the Grad nights. We were there the same time as you & yes, it was a lot busier than I expected it to be. Our strategy was to get in as many rides as we could first thing in the morning then grab fast passes along the way. We would also see shows in the afternoon when the rides were busy, then return to the hotel for a break, before returning for WOC/Fireworks/Fantasmic. We also managed to get a few rides at the end of the night.

We went in on Saturday at about 1pm, and after fighting through crowds and only doing the train around the park and Winnie the Pooh, we left. It was unbelievable. So many teenagers!

Lucky this was just going to be a taste of Disney day.

We went yesterday to Disneyland and today to California Adventure, and we loved both days.
