Disneyland has announced the dates of its Grad Nites events for 2010, which will allow graduating high school students to party late into the night at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure.

The Grad Nites are split into two sub-events. First, the Blast-Off event at Disney's California Adventure takes place from 8-10pm, and allows access to the park's top thrill rides including California Screamin', Maliboomer and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Next, the main Grad Nite event takes place from 10pm-4am at Disneyland Park, allowing students six hours of late-night rides on the main attractions such as Splash Mountain, Space Mountain and Indiana Jones Adventure.

2010's Grad Nites will take place on May 20 and 27, and June 3, 10, 16, 17, 24. Tickets for the May 27 Grad Nite event, and the May 20 and 27 Blast-Off events are already sold out. However, tickets for the other events are still available and schools can register to allow their students to get hold of tickets through the Disney Grad Nite website.

Two types of ticket are available:

  • Grad Nite-Only Tickets ($59 each) - include admission to Disneyland Park for Grad Nite event, unlimited use of attractions plus entertainment and dancing events.
  • Grad-Nite/Blast-Off Tickets ($92 each) - include admission to Disney's California Adventure for Blast-Off event, admission to Disneyland Park for Grad Nite Meal at a select location, unlimited use of attractions plus entertainment and dancing events.

For ordinary visitors, the Grad Nites will result in Disney's parks closing slightly earlier than usual during the June events. Disney's California Adventure will close by 7pm, while Disneyland will close by 9pm.

Walt Disney World recently announced details of its own Grad Nites events, which take place in April and May. Universal Orlando runs a similar event - Grad Bash - at around the same time.
