    Hello, My brother is graduating high school on May 20 2022 and we would really love to go to California Adventure The next day. May 21st 2022 however the days are blocked off. We have your parks Enchanted key pass which allows us to go but the day is block

    Hello, Isaiah!

    Congratulations to your brother! Celebrating at The Happiest Place on Earth is a wonderful idea!

    A longstanding tradition for graduating seniors is the Disneyland Resort Grad Nite celebration. If your brother’s school is participating in a scheduled Grad Nite event, he’ll need to contact the school’s representative for the event to inquire about availability. In some cases, openings may be available for smaller groups to participate in Grad Nite. You can email Group Travel Operations or call them at 1-800-232-7980 to ask about openings and find out about chaperone requirements as well.

    Traditional Grad Nite activities occur after park closing at Disney California Adventure Park. So regular park admission, including Magic Key passes, are not valid for special events like these. The theme park is still open to Guests with regular admission during the day. So a celebratory visit remains an option even if it doesn’t include the after-hours Grad Nite event.

    Disneyland Resort Magic Key passes open the door to the magic of the Disneyland Resort. The different Magic Key passes offer various levels of benefits and valid dates for theme park admission. The Enchant Key Pass, which we have in my family too, allows for admission to select days of the year, subject to theme park reservation availability. Unfortunately, as you found, May 21, 2022, is a blockout date for the Enchant Key Pass.

    Although we can’t use our Magic Key passes to visit the Disneyland Resort on a blockout date, it is OK to purchase regular theme park tickets. As a bonus, your Magic Key holder discounts for dining and merchandise are still valid, even if you use a different form of theme park admission. Before purchasing tickets, I recommend checking the theme park reservation availability calendar. If the date you want to visit isn’t available, you may want to keep checking the calendar. Other Guests may sometimes need to cancel their plans, which will make those reservations available for you to book.

    One more thing to consider is an event that is new this year. Disneyland After Dark: Grad Nite Reunion is reminiscent of the traditional Grad Nite events, but is open to all Guests. There are three of these unique after-hours parties scheduled at Disney California Adventure Park in June. Tickets are limited. So if you think you might want to enjoy this activity, purchase your tickets soon.

    Whichever way you celebrate, I’m sure you will have a magical time at the Disneyland Resort. Thanks for your question, Isaiah.

    See ya' real soon!
