    I just found out we are going to DCA on a grad night but we do have park hopper. Will world of color not be showing during grad nite? Should we go the previous day?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Jackie! We're always so happy to see you and to help with all your Disney vacation planning questions!

    Your visit to Disneyland Resort is coming up so soon; it's time to start the countdown! I'm glad to know that you have purchased a Park Hopper ticket, which will grant you access to both Disneyland Resort theme parks on the same day, during eligible Park Hopper hours. This is a wonderful way to maximize your time, especially on nights when Disney California Adventure Park may close early for the ever-popular Disneyland Resort Grad Nite events. While we aren't quite able to see the Hours & Events Calendar specific to your planned visit date just yet, I was able to see the scheduled showtimes for another Grad Nite earlier in the week to get a sense of what might be offered during your visit. While those schedules are always subject to change, it looks like there is a special World of Color: A Grad Nite Celebration scheduled to show late that evening, while World of Color - ONE is scheduled to show before the theme park closes for the after-hours event. So, this leads me to believe that Guests without the after-hours Grad Nite ticket should be able to view it before they leave Disney California Adventure Park for the evening! I would highly recommend checking back on the Hours & Events Calendar as your visit date approaches, either online or via the official Disneyland Resort mobile app. This is one of my most frequently used resources as it lists operating hours, parade and live entertainment showtimes, and even scheduled refurbishments. The calendar is traditionally populated up to 6 weeks in advance, so we're almost in the window of time where you should be able to view the information respective to your visit dates.

    I hope this is a helpful start, Jackie. If we can lend any other recommendations in the meantime, I hope you'll feel welcome to come back to planDisney, anytime! 

    Wishing you Wondrous Journeys,
