Is grad night worth it?

      The graduation trip ticket for the class of 2024  is $325 to go to Disneyland for the night from 9 a.m.?. to 1 a.m. A one-day park-hopper ticket is $169  for one person. There are several compelling reasons why opting to visit Disneyland independently with a group of friends or family could be better than going with the school. The biggest reason is that you can spend as much time as you want at the park and you won’t be rushed to do all you want to do with that 6-hour time slot. You would also save money by avoiding extra fees and costs added on by the cost of the charter buses. 

     Many theme parks are better than Disneyland at the same price or a little cheaper. According to one senior Nathaniel Perez, 

     “Six Flags would be one I would rather go to or even Great America, not just the cost but also I have more interest in those kinds of parks and not as much as a theme park such as Disney.”

     I feel many people relate to this. A lot of people I’ve heard say that Disneyland has more childish rides, and Six Flags is much cheaper than Disneyland. Another great alternative to Disneyland which combines better rides and characters is Universal. Universal tickets cost $109, plus there are many more characters than just Disney characters.  

      Overall, grad night may not be the most optimal choice for several reasons. Firstly, it could be more advantageous to plan a full-day trip with a select group of friends or family rather than just attending for six hours. This way, you can enjoy the experience for a longer duration and create more unforgettable memories. 

      Secondly, it is important to note that Disneyland tends to be quite busy during this time, as multiple high school senior classes attend on the same night. This can lead to long lines and crowds which may not be ideal for some. 

     Finally, if you choose to go on a day trip with your friends you can allocate your ticket savings toward food and souvenirs. This could potentially save you money in the long run and allow for a more enjoyable experience overall.
