    Hi, love this panel. We will be staying at the Port Orleans-French Quarter on April 26th. Will the Grad Night that they are having at Disney World effect us at all, or will we even know it's going on? Thank you

    The April 25 and 26 Grad Nights will have little impact on your vacation. Although the Magic Kingdom will be closing at 7 p.m. on those nights to prepare for the all-night festivities, I would recommend keeping this park on your itinerary for either of those dates. Many guests will avoid the Magic Kingdom due to its earlier closing so touring any time Friday or Saturday is a good strategy to avoid crowds.

    Grad Night is an exclusive party for high school seniors. The local teens arrive and depart via buses. There are reports that some of the seniors take their festivities over to the Contemporary Hotel and Downtown Disney. I’ve been told that loud music can be heard most of the night (the party is from 7 p.m. until 4 a.m.) from the Magic Kingdom, however with your stay at Port Orleans French Quarter, you should sleep peacefully.
