If your school is interested in attending Disney Grad Nite 10, they must register online at Disney.youthgroups.go.com. Grad Nite is open to high school seniors, chaperones, and junior class officers who are interested in previewing grad nite for their senior class the following year.

Chaperons are given special perks, including a line-hopper pass and admission to a lounge that’s excluded for chaperons.
Grad Nite park admission covers access to Walt Disney World Resort but it doesn’t include any meals. Students must bring their own money for meals and merchandise, which is sold at regular price. Disney also enforces a strict no alcohol and no smoking policy, which applies to both students and chaperons. Standard safety and security measures are taken at the front gate, including bag checks for illegal substances and weapons. Chaperons are assigned pages, to keep informed of any important news around the park, and chaperons are required to check in upon arrival. One complimentary chaperons ticket is provided for every 10 tickets purchased.
