If you are heading to Disneyland in June, you may be wondering what you can look forward to. We share everything you can look forward to at Disneyland Resort in June 2022 plus annual trends if you are planning for June in 2023 or beyond.
Wow – June 2022 marks one year since out-of-state guests were allowed to return to Disneyland park after the extended closure. It feels like forever ago that I walked into Disneyland for the first time in 16 months, but it was just last year.
Disneyland in June – Annual Trends And Tips
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 now 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?
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
- Hoodie or light jacket for the cool mornings and evenings
- Shorts or crops during the day
- Dresses or skirts (I love these in summer)
- Sandals or comfortable shoes for Disneyland
- Pants if you get cold easily for after the sun goes down
- 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?
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 2022 specific info before you head to the parks.
Special Events At Disneyland in June
Yes, we know that 2021 is different, and these special events are not happening, but in a typical year, June does have special events you may want to be aware of. In 2022 this includes Grad Nites and Grad Nite Reunion.
Wrapping Up Grad Nites
Grad Nites usually continue to take place through mid-June (these typically start in mid-late April at Disneyland). Grad Nites will see an influx of attendance in the afternoon to evening of 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.
Disneyland in June 2022 – What To Expect THIS YEAR! Ride Closures and more!
June 2022 marks one year of the parks being opened to out-of-state visitors. Disneyland has stated it is no longer operating at reduced capacity (as of May 1, 2022) and crowds seem to show that.
Even though they are not reducing capacity, it does seem they are capping park reservations before the parks hit a capacity that would require them to start turning guests away. This is a good thing.
Here is everything to know if you plan on heading to Disneyland in June 2022.
After Dark Events in June 2022
Grad Nites wrap up in mid-June, but Disneyland has added a Grad Nite Reunion after dark event this year.
The extra ticketed event takes place on June 23, 28, and 30th in Disneyland California Adventure Park.
Disneyland Resort Park Hours June 2022
Here are the hours for both parks and the Downtown Disney district for June 2022

Ticket Deals for June 2022
If you are a California Resident, Disneyland has announced that there is a new Summer ticket deal where you can save up to $86 on a ticket… and if you buy through my partners, you can save even more. This ticket deal is a lot like the spring ticket deal where you get a set amount of time to utilize the tickets and you don’t have to use them within 2 weeks.

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 CrazyAdventure 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.
Plan Out Your Night Time Spectaculars
Now that Night Time Spectaculars are all back, you will need to have a plan to see the ones on your list… especially if you hope to catch them all. My friend Jessica has a great resource for this – CHECK IT OUT HERE.
