Disneyland June Crowd Levels

Crowds are a common concern for Disneyland guests—it’s tricky to navigate finding the best days with longer park hours, more open rides, a full entertainment schedule and low crowds.

I always say go when it works best for you, then I can help you work out the logistics like what rides to go on and when. It’s the main reason I created Park Plans—step by step ride guides with optimal wait times and more. 

If you’re super concerned about crowds I suggest you skip:

  • The first few weekend nights of Fantasmic (returns May 24th)
  • Be aware of dates close to the expiration of the  SoCal tickets which ends June 2 and people will be looking to use those last days up

We might see lower crowds on these dates:

Anything is possible, and when it comes to crowds it’s highly likely that even our best time guesses could miss the mark. However, I think these dates might be a good choice.

  • June 18 and 20, before Pride Nite begins because daytime before any After Dark events tend to be a bit lighter on crowds, so don’t let the “early” closing time deter you, it can actually be a smart choice

Add this info to any Disneyland crowd calendars you might see (they’re not my favorite) and plan accordingly. 

Disneyland in June also opens up official swimming season! Now, most hotels here in Anaheim have heated pools that are open year-round. But if you need the warmer weather to start your tan, I suggest a stay and a full day at The Disneyland Hotel pool

I also love the new improved pool and deck area at Pixar Place Hotel.

Dressing for June Weather

My usual packing for Disneyland includes at the very least a hoodie, even sometimes in full summer heat I reach for that hoodie at night. Layers are key and getting a locker can really help keep your hands free.


What to wear to Disneyland in June


This summer season I am loving all the tennis skirt styles that have built in shorts under, they’re super trendy and comfy for the parks, as are any type of sundress. You’d be amazed how comfortable that is!

June Disneyland Discounts

2024 is the year for Disneyland discounts—Disney wants you to come for a vacation so there are a few options and discounts to help you visit Disneyland cheaper!
