Best Dates for the Ultimate Disneyland Grad Night Experience

The Disneyland Grad Night 2024 is scheduled to kick off in May and June with a host of selected dates. But, you may wonder, is it better to visit Disneyland on a weekday or a weekend? Well, let’s break it down for you.

Weekday dates are naturally less crowded for the Disneyland Resort Grad Nite private party. They are also a bit cheaper. This provides some room for budget-conscious families and students who wish to experience Grad Night without breaking the bank.
