    From what my trainer told me last night that we are having a pre-Grand Night thing. Some sort of Bash at DCA.He mentioned that when the busses pull through the parking lot we will be handing out some sort of special goody bags to the kids. Hope you have fun!

    If you want to go on a "Mountain" ride expect a HUGE wait time. Last year the wait for space was 4 hours long. Indy is three or four hours. Thunder was 3. Splash was closed. Matterhorn was modestly an hour. I didn't bother to go to DCA As it was packed.

    On a lighter note, classic attractions such as Pirates and HM had NO WAIT at all. Same with JC, Fantasyland and Star Tours, etc..

    Its kind of hit and miss I guess.

    Also, there will be "dance clubs" available.
    Siggy siggy sig sig.

    Whatever you do...do not fall asleep.

    Ive been told from CM's that attended grad night last year as a guest, the best thing to do is to utilize all of the DJ spots and just dance. Alot of the rides will have very long waits, with exception of a few.

    Yay same with me. I'm finally graduating High School also! I'm really excited for Grad Nite. Mine is supposed to be on the 12th. I was planning on riding a few rides and dancing and hanging out the rest, but those long wait times are making me reconsider =/.

    Pirates and HM are good for either making out or taking a short nap (along with Tiki Room). How can there be no wait for these on Grad Night?

    When I went (a whole 3 or so years ago) it was A LOT of fun. But what posters have said is true: big rides will have big waits. But Fantasyland is practically dead so enjoy!

    I actually walked on to pan's flight last year. Crazy huh?

    Most kids are now concerned with...um...close contact at the dance clubs.

    HM is a good make out ride, (my roommate and his gf hooked up on HM for the first time, go figure) but during grad nite it was only my small group of five in the elevator and ride. Kind of like a private tour! :P

    And Pirates is super high capacity.
    Siggy siggy sig sig.

    At the time of Grad Night I didn't know how great it was to just walk on Peter Pan, I certainly took it for granted!

    I didn't go anywhere near the clubs, sad to know they were being abused just like a prom. Gross.

    Wishful thinking but I can already gaurentee you it's not. It's going to be in some mansion with a DJ and a different activity in each room.

    I wouldn't recommend going to DCA first, they are going to be packed!
    There is a website if you want it:
