Are there any graduation-themed Disney movies or shows to watch?
Although High School graduation themed, and not College graduation themed, there are a few classic, memorable Disney graduation moments. The most well known is probably the popular 2008 film High School Musical 3: Senior Year, in which the students perform their last musical together as they prepare to go off to college.
Other memorable Disney graduation moments include the S5E24 episode of Boy Meets world, where the main characters graduate, and a very special proposal goes down. I won’t spoil the outcome, but it’s a must-see moment in Disney TV history!
And who could forget the conclusion to Kim Possible, where in the final two-part episode she graduates middle school?
Do Disney parks offer any discounts for graduates or graduation groups?
Disneyland offers special Grad Nite packages for high school seniors. Find more information here.
Disney offers other discounts for groups of 10+. But at the time of writing, the pricing isn’t published on their website, so you’ll have to contact them directly at (714) 520-7079 for the details.
Are there any special Disney graduation celebrations or events?
In California, Disneyland Resort Grad Nite is an event to celebrate high school seniors, it has the park staying open extra late until 2 am. However, there are no special celebrations dedicated to college graduates.
