    Are there any special event nites in May 2022 that will close down any parks at night?

    Hi Amy!

    That is an excellent question. I can see that you're a planner! May is typically a busy month at the Disneyland Resort. I'll do my best to break down the known and expected events.

    The highly anticipated Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite is set for May 3, May 4, and May 27, 2022. It's the ultimate Star Wars after-hours event and is currently sold out! This event will take place at Disneyland Park. Guests attending this event can start arriving at 6:00 p.m., and the event officially starts at 9:00 p.m. up until 1:00 a.m., with Disneyland Park closing early on those days.

    One of the main reasons May is a busy month is due to the different High School Grad Nite events that occur throughout the month of May! The parks will be filled with excited high school students during those days as they celebrate their huge achievements. In the past, high school students would receive Park Hopper Tickets granting them access to both parks. During the evening, a special private event for them would then take place at Disney California Adventure Park. As such, Disney California Adventure Park will close early for other Guests on those days. I did some investigating, and although not confirmed, it seems like the High School Grad Nites in May 2022 will be on May 13, May 14, May 18, May 20, May 21, May 25, May 26, and May 31, 2022. But please note this is not confirmed yet. The Disneyland Resort Calendar is updated up to 6 weeks out, so I recommend you keep an eye on the calendar as the May 2022 schedule becomes available.

    One tip that I have though is to purchase Park Hopper Tickets. This will allow you to "hop" over to the other park if one park closes early due to a special nighttime event.

    I hope this was helpful in your planning, if you have more questions, please visit us again!
