Visiting Disneyland in June | Magic in the Planning

Visiting Disneyland in June 2022

|

Nice weather and school vacation make the summer an excellent time to visit the Disneyland Resort. The one downside is that Disneyland in June can be quite crowded! Weekdays and weekends will both be busy as school is out for summer vacation across the country. With a bit of planning, however, June can be a great time to visit the parks.

**The phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort in California is an ongoing process. Be sure to visit our official Disneyland reopening post for updated information to guide your vacation planning! Some experiences listed below have been temporarily suspended or modified due to the pandemic.


 

June At-a-Glance

  • June temperatures heat up as summer begins. Both heat and humidity come into play during this time of year.
  • Grad Nites are back for 2022. Tickets are now on sale for Grad Nites in Disney California Adventure Park. While this is a fun opportunity for graduating seniors, the parks can get a bit crowded for the rest of us. So keep this in mind when selecting your vacation dates.
  • Be prepared for summer crowds. June is a popular month to visit with school ending for the year across the country. Weekdays and weekends alike will most likely be busy.
  • Fantasmic! returns on May 28, 2022. We couldn’t be more excited for the return of this spectacular nighttime show in Disneyland Park!

 

June Events

Astro Orbitor in Disneyland | Magic in the PlanningJune is the beginning of summer for most, and summer break does mean summer crowds. The good news is that nighttime shows are finally making a comeback at the Disneyland Resort with The Main Street Electrical Parade, Disneyland Forever, and World of Color returning on April 22, and Fantasmic! returning on May 28!

The only major holiday in June is Father’s Day on June 19. And while Father’s Day doesn’t typically see a huge surge in crowds, you may want to make any special dining reservations early as they do book up quickly.

Grad Nites are back for 2022 and will take place on select dates in both May and June. (June dates include June 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 17.) There are three ticket options ranging from $89 – $179. Keep in mind that these special events do attract crowds to the parks on these particular dates… especially at Disney California Adventure.

  • Disneyland Grad Nite Private Party Experience at Disney California Adventure ($89 per person) – Ticketed grads will gain access to Disney California Adventure Park after 9:00 PM for an “immersive, once-in-a-lifetime celebration.”
  • Disneyland Grad Nite Private Party Experience plus a full day at Disney California Adventure ($119 per person) – Enjoy a full day at Disney California Adventure Park before enjoying an exclusive event after 9:00 PM in the park.
  • Disneyland Grad Nite Private Party Experience plus a Park Hopper experience at both Disneyland theme parks ($179 per person) – This option allows grads to spend the day at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park on the same day as well as attend the exclusive party at Disney California Adventure Park beginning at 9:00 PM.

June Weather

The Matterhorn in Disneyland | magicintheplanning.comOverall, the weather in Anaheim is starting to feel more “summer-like” in the month of June. The average high is 81 degrees and the low is typically around 61 degrees. June can also be a bit humid, especially in the morning hours.

 

June Disneyland Crowds

Crowd calendars are very popular, but they can also be a bit unpredictable. That being said, the pandemic has made predicting crowds even more difficult than normal.

While crowd calendars can be a big help in planning your trip, keep in mind, they are predictions at best. When designing our calendars, we take a look at events, school calendars, ticket prices, park hours, holidays, and typical monthly patterns. But unfortunately, our crowd calendars cannot predict other things such as weather, travel advisories, pandemics, or last-minute openings or closings of shows and attractions.

June is a very popular month to visit the Disneyland Resort. Be prepared for summer crowds throughout the month!
