    When Disney has new rides and attractions to unveil, they typically do it around the beginning of June. Some park areas might be closed for a press preview event before that, and on the next day, annual pass holders can get in, expect larger-than-normal crowds. Check the pass holder calendar for dates. The new attraction will often stay busy throughout the summer following its opening.

    The first thing my Gal Pal thinks of when I say Disneyland in June is wall to wall people and feeling so hot that she couldn't even enjoy her ice cream cone. 

    These averages can help you get a rough idea of what the weather will be like. It's only a guideline: California weather is just like it is where you live, different every year.

    June's temperatures are moderate, but it's sometimes foggy, with the nearby ocean creating morning overcast skies that may linger all day long.

    At the extremes, Anaheim's record low temperature was 30°F (-1°C), and its record high was 108°F (42°C). Check the current Disneyland weather forecast a few days ahead for the best information.

    • Average High Temperature: 72°F (22°C)
    • Average Low Temperature: 60°F (15°C)
    • Rain & Clouds Index: little or no rain

    The best way to decide what to wear is to check the weather forecast a few days ahead.

    Midday, Disneyland feels a little hotter than you might expect. It cools off fast at dark and if you're going to watch Fantasmic! or World of Color up close, you'll be thankful for a water repellent jacket. Layers work best, clothing-wise. Make the innermost layer one that you'd be comfortable in if it's a little hotter than the forecast high.

    Before you start packing your bags, take a look at the tested and proven tips in the Girls' Guide to Packing for Disneyland.
