Orlando, Florida - If you grew up in Florida, chances are you were at Grad Nite your senior year of high school.

Sadly, after decades of hosting high school seniors for the after-hours graduation, Walt Disney World has canceled Grad Nite after this year.

This Saturday, May 7 2011, will be the last time seniors can explore the park until 2 a.m. and watch big-name musical acts.  This year, there will be performances by Taio Cruz, Pete Wentz and 3OH!3.

Disney said it will offer other options for school groups to visit the park during normal operating hours. Florida school groups will be able to buy special one-day, one-park tickets for $55 at any time of the year.

Disney World has hosted Grad Nite for 40 years. There are no plans for Grad Nite Disneyland to be canceled.
