Disneyland in June 2023: What To Know For Your Visit

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

June kicks off the summer break season. Disneyland is a popular summer vacation destination. If you are planning a visit to Disneyland in June 2023, we are sharing the best time to go in the month of June, tips for the parks, weather, park hours, and more. This is your complete guide to making the most of your June visit to Disneyland Resort in 2023.

While any time is a great time to visit Disneyland, June is probably the best month in the summer to visit. Summer Vacations kick off, but with many school districts not letting out til mid-June, there are fewer crowds than later in the summer. 

June is typically the coolest of the summer months, though it can bring rain and cloudy skies. 

If you are wanting to head to Disneyland in June – you can also get discount Disneyland tickets from my partners at Get Away Today. In fact, in 2023 they have a 5th-day free offer that can also be paired with free hotel nights to get the biggest savings.

Now on to Disneyland in June. I like to cover the annual trends and general tips first. This helps if you are planning a visit this year, or next. After that, I cover the current year’s specific details such as ride closures, park hours, and more.

Here we will cover annual June information so whether you are planning for this year or next (or beyond) you can get a good look at what to expect. Year-specific information will be further down and is updated in the days/weeks leading up to the start of the month.

Planning Your June Disneyland Vacation- Tickets and Park Reservations

Once you have booked your vacation, you will be ready to start thinking about things like packing, food, and more. Here are some things to think about when you are planning your vacation.

Before we get into the details, just a reminder that Disneyland still has a park reservation system. You will want to book NOW and also make sure you book the number of days for the tickets you want. Changes will cancel your reservations, and if the park is all booked up, you may not be able to make new reservations.

If you are heading there this summer, I definitely suggest checking out my ticket partners at Get Away Today. They have discounted tickets, free hotel nights, and my favorite… 5th day free!

What Is The Weather Like At Disneyland In June?

June Gloom is real at Disneyland

At Disneyland in June, we tend to see “June Gloom” hit Southern California. So if you are hoping for a sunny, Southern California getaway, you may be in for a surprise. In June you will want to pack layers and be prepared for rain, fog, and an all-around mugginess.

That doesn’t mean every day will be muggy, but you may not have the sunny, blue skies you were hoping for, especially earlier in the day. Be sure to pack a poncho or light jacket, just in case.

What To Wear To Disneyland In June

Wondering what to wear to Disneyland in June? Here are our suggestions, but be sure to check the forecast in the days leading up to your vacation.

  • Lightweight tees and tanks

  • Umbrella or poncho for rain
  • Socks if needed for your footwear
  • Cooling towels for hot afternoons
  • Neck fan if you get hot easily

Is Disneyland Busy In June?

Disneyland crowds in June can vary greatly, but as many Magic Key passes are blocked out beginning mid-month, you will actually see crowds lower. 

Park Hours In June

June we tend to see longer park hours than in the early spring. In typical years Disneyland park will remain open until midnight unless there is a special event. California Adventure will usually remain open until 10 pm, except on Grad Nites when it will close early to general guests.

What Rides Are Closed in June at Disneyland?

One great thing about visiting the parks in June is that typically all the rides are available to park guests. Be sure to check out which rides are open currently in the 2023 specific info before you head to the parks.

Special Events At Disneyland in June

June special events include Grad Nites and usually another Disneyland After Dark Event. In 2023, this is the first-ever Pride Nite events.

Wrapping Up Grad Nites

Grad Nites usually continue to take place through mid-June (these typically start in mid-May at Disneyland). Grad Nites will see an influx of attendance in the afternoon to the evening of teen guests (high schoolers) enjoying the parks.

While some people tend to avoid Grad Nites, I have never found them a bother and usually do not plan my vacation to avoid them.

Summer Events Kick-Off

Summer events and entertainment tend to kick off Memorial Day Weekend. From the fireworks changing to be shown nightly, to summer entertainment specific to that year, if you want to do it all, you most likely can in June.

Some years we also see summer themes that can include special fireworks, park layovers, or after-dark events. Think Summer of Heroes (note above picture) or Pixar Pals.

Tips For Visiting Disneyland In June

If you are planning to visit Disneyland in June, I definitely suggest checking out my guide to Summer at Disneyland. In it, I give my go-to tips for beating the heat and the crowds. But here are a few tips to get you started:

Visit for a minimum of 3 Days

I use to always say to go for 3 days so that you would get Magic Morning. Since that has not returned after the closure, I still think 3 days is your best bet to be able to get everything done and to be able to still have time to take in shows, mid-day breaks at the pool, and more.

If you want to go even longer, my partners at Get Away Today offer a 5th-day free ticket. They also have free hotel nights and more when you book through them. If you book a hotel stay of 2 nights or more be sure to use code ThisCrazy10 to save even more.

Going on a Grad Nite?

If you are going on a Grad Nite, I suggest starting your day at California Adventure. Why? Because most people will choose to start at Disneyland because of the early closure. I suggest this strategy for Halloween Time with Oogie Boogie Bash and did it with the Merriest Nites Christmas Party in 2021 as well.
