by The Disney Youth Programs team

While most students look forward to their nighttime celebration at Disneyland Resort Grad Nite, did you know there is a way to maximize their fun with a combo ticket that allows students to experience Disney California Adventure Park during the day AND night? For just $20 more than the private Grad Nite party ticket, your students can live it up from sun up to sun down with a full day of magic at Disney California Adventure Park.

Here is our grad-approved itinerary for your students to make the most of their day and night:

Kick off the day by snagging a FastPass to Radiator Springs Racers then cruise down Route 66. Don’t forget to take a spin on Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree!

From heroic encounters with Spider-Man, Black Panther and even Captain Marvel to a groovy, thrilling mission to rescue Star-Lord, Groot, Drax, and Gamora on Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT!, don’t miss these epic Super Hero experiences.

Afterwards, take flight on Soarin’ Around the World for a journey above some of the most breathtaking wonders of the world or set course for a splashing good time aboard Grizzly River Run.

Ready to grub? Wing it on over to Smokejumpers Grill in the Grizzly Peak Airfield for a lunch that combats fiery appetites with favorites like chili cheeseburgers, smokin’ onion rings and more.

Take a breather with the fractally fun Frozen- Live at the Hyperion or learn how to draw beloved Disney characters at the Animation Academy. Pro Tip: Keep an eye out for Insta-worthy walls in the backlot of Hollywood Land.

Head on over to Pixar Pier to get in a daytime spin on Pixar Pal-A-Round, a dash aboard Incredicoaster or a little friendly competition on Toy Story Midway Mania! Be sure to keep a look out for Jack-Jack and munch on one of his favorite Cookie Num Nums!

Once the sun sets, the party has just begun. Grab a corn dog for dinner at the Corn Dog Castle and go for a wild ride at Goofy’s Fly School. Once 9 p.m. rolls around, rock those Disney Grad Ears and get ready to celebrate as Disney California Adventure Park closes its gates to day Guests and turns into a party exclusively for this year’s grads!

During this once-in-a-lifetime experience, dance the night away at dance parties throughout the park, buckle up for an incredible ride aboard the Incredicoaster at night, meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse in their graduation best and above all, create lifelong memories at the happiest place on earth!
