    I loved doing Grad Nite in 99. Before that I never saw the Magic Kingdom. I remember feeling like a little kid in a candystore. It was so magical to see everything in lights.

    I was there, too! K.C. & the Sunshine Band, Starbuck, Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids. I still have the brochure and ticket stub from Grad Nite. Would you believe the tickets were only $9.00? I hate to think what it costs now!

    I can not belive the difference in price from 1977 and 1999. I paid 50 dollars for my grad nite

    K.C. & the Sunshine Band ... they played at a birthday party my parents went to last year. So that makes it seem like much less a coup for WDW [Well, something like that. Granted, it's no longer 1977... ]

    Where do all these ridiculous performances take place? Like right in the parks? Or somewhere just for the graduation people? I think I'm gonna be in Disney through those dates.... but I'm not a senior or anything... I don't get this !

    They happen inside the Magic Kingdom from 11pm to 5am. When I was there for gradnite 99, they had at least two parties that I know of. One of the parties was in Adventureland, and the other one was in front of the castle. One of artist there was Britney Spears before she was well known as a singer

    Yes, they close the park early that day, sweep it, and then get it ready for the seniors. Party time!

    That is right, they do close early for getting ready for Gradnite. I forgot about that. The only bad thing about gradnite is dressing up for it.

    Well disneys rates have gone up a bit faster than the rate of inflation the past 20 years, still a good portion of the difference is the rate of inflation (what was minimun wage in 1977 wasn't it near 2.00/hr). Also were all atttractions included for that price? I know that daytime admission was quite a bit lower at that time because you still had to but tickets for the rides once you got in, but for a seperate party like that I'm guessing all rides were included.

    Join the club!! Made our reservations for the same weeks also. We had NOOOO idea that it was grad night. The schools in Utah don't graduate until JUNE!! Thought we were just hitting the end of spring break and that was bad enough. I'm changing our plans for the Magic Kingdom as we speak. We plan on having a great time anyway, and hope you do too!!
