    I wouldnt cancel. If you are planning on going, I would def still go to the parks. No matter what day you go, you be able to accomplish most attractions in the morning before the park gets crowded. Grad nights will get crowded later in the evening.

    I wouldn't cancel. The 16th is the first in the series of Grad Nights and being a chaperone I've found the first night is the lightest number of Grads. Most school won't arrive till the afternoon or evening so you should be safe.

    I agree that you shouldn't cancel. We went two years ago during Grad Nights and I was worried about them heading in, but they turned out to be fine. Just like others have said, it gets busier later in the day and evening, but even then it was never terrible for us and most of the time we hardly noticed any difference.

    Have fun!

    Thursday will have light crowds so try to do a lot then. Make the most of Friday morning when crowds are still light. In the evening focus on the night shows in Disneyland park.

    Agree with everyone, We've experienced Grad Nights for the past 2 years. We've seen them roll in closer to the evening.

    Like swampy said. Personally I avoid Grad Nights like the plague, but if you're set on going,be sure to take advantage of early mornings and do as much as you can before Friday night - and then be prepared with a sense of humor.

    I actually went after I graduated from high school, but it wasn't a part of grad night. It was just my then boyfriend and I having a nice vacation and I was kind of annoyed by the grad nighters, but we found that about 90% of any guest annoyance came from adults and their small kids and not the grad night students. It gets busy and I think they might close down early for them, but we weren't bothered by them. I wouldn't think they would be a big enough reason to cancel.

    I've been about six times during Grad Nite weekends and haven't had a problem with the ones in early May. They really don't feel anymore crowded than a regular Friday or Saturday night. The only difference is there are many more young kids. The only problem I had was the spotlights and loud noise while staying xat Grand Californian but that was well after park closing.
