Wow! Just read this on the Disney Parks Blog:

The only experience I ever had with Grad Nite was on our first trip when the MK closed an hour earlier than I had realized due to a scheduled Grad Nite.

I agree that it seems Disney didn't think this one through.

I DID go to Grad Nite at Disney and it was so much fun and a great memory. I am really sad that future generations will not be able to experience this. I think that the hour or so that they closed the park (as it has switched between MK and DHS and then back) did not affect visitors as much as some are saying. The times are listed well ahead of time, and there are other parks to visit when one is closed an hour early (and if I'm not mistaken they keep at least one open a little later to make up for it). I do believe that Disney is making a mistake by discontinuing this great tradition. :(
