Prepared by the 2022 Disneyland® Resort Grad Nite Team

The Disneyland® Resort Grad Nite Prohibited Items List has been established to ensure a safe yet celebratory environment for schools attending our parks for Grad Nite. It is ultimately the school’s responsibility to ensure that all of their attendees adhere to the Disneyland® Resort Grad Nite Prohibited Items List.

What items may students and chaperones bring to Grad Nite?
While we understand many students and chaperones will be at the parks for a long day, we recommend packing as light as possible, leaving valuables not needed for your visit at home, and renting a locker at Disney California Adventure® Park (on Buena Vista Street) if necessary. Here is what we recommend bringing:

  • Empty plastic or aluminum water bottles to be filled at water fountains throughout the parks.
  • Quick service dining locations are able to provide complimentary cups of water upon request.
  • Protective sun gear (e.g.: sunscreen, hats, sunglasses)
  • A purse, backpack, fanny pack, or other bag smaller than 24” long x 15” wide x 18” high (61cm x 38cm x 46cm)
  • Cell phone, phone charging cables and mobile battery chargers
  • Jacket or sweatshirt for the early morning and nighttime hours when the weather may be cooler
  • Money to pay for food and souvenirs throughout the day.
    • If a student plans to use a debit or credit card, the name on the card must match the student’s ID card.
  • Small point-and-shoot camera, GoPro device (without hand-held extendable pole), or non-professional DSLR camera to capture memories from the event
  • Disneyland® Resort Grad Nite event ticket and photo ID

May students bring their own medication through the Grad Nite screening?
In an effort to avoid delays through the Grad Nite screening, students with medication should have a Chaperone from the school serve as their spokesperson through the Grad Nite screening process. Chaperones should be aware of any and all medications (over-the-counter and prescription medication) their students are bringing with them to the Disneyland® Resort. Students may have their own medication in their possession once successfully clearing the Grad Nite security screening. Medication needing refrigeration may be stored at Disney California Adventure® Park First Aid.
