Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts Nite, Villains Nite, and Star Wars Nite have been huge successes thus far and, now, Disney has announced an additional night to the series with an all-new theme– Disneyland After Dark: Grad Nite Reunion!

It’s time to relive the “good-ol’ days” and celebrate a party for the decades at the first-ever Disneyland After Dark: Grad Nite Reunion! Debuting on select nights this June at Disney California Adventure Park, you can join in a reunion party filled with dancing, fun, and plenty of nostalgia from graduation classes of the last six decades.
