June 2024 Disneyland Crowd Calendar

Our free June 2024 Disneyland crowd calendar helps you choose the best days to visit & avoid the busiest dates. Along with attendance predictions, this covers info on weather, special events, and thoughts on what to expect during summer at Disney California Adventure and Disneyland.

In terms of weather, June is a good time of year to visit California. You can expect humidity to be low as daily high temperatures average 81°F, seldom falling below 69°F or going above 89°F. Daily low temperatures are 63°F on average, rarely falling below 55°F or exceeding 67°F.

As you can see by the second graph on this page, June in Anaheim is comfortable for most hours of the between noon and 8 p.m. Temperatures are cooler in the morning and drop once the sun goes down, so we recommend packing a long-sleeve shirt for the evening hours if you’re going to be staying in Disneyland until midnight or seeing World of Color.

Now, let’s take a look at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure crowds during the month of June…

What’s New in June 2024 at Disneyland

Let’s start with seasonal events, the most notable of which is the return of Grad Nites at Disney California Adventure (and to a lesser degree, Disneyland). This will be held on select evenings, and will impact crowds on the dates listed below. As the name suggests, it’s for graduating seniors. (Sorry to anyone wanting to relive their high school glory days, but it’s not open admission.)

In terms of summer attraction closures, our regularly-updated 2024 Disneyland Refurbishment Calendar covers everything that’ll be down during June 2024. Usually, Disneyland announces refurbishments a couple of months in advance, so that’s likely not the final list. In general, it’s not a terrible month for maintenance–Disneyland tries to avoid downtime during the summer tourist season.

Otherwise, it’s unknown what’ll be happening during June 2024 at Disneyland. There’s the possibility of a new celebration starting sometime in 2024. Given the looming slowdown and exhaustion of pent-up demand, we’re expecting that to start by Memorial Day, meaning that June could be the first month of a big event (likely one revolving around entertainment–parade, fireworks, reimagined Fantasmic, etc). If so, that would cause an increase to the crowd levels below.

We’ll preface this by noting that Disneyland crowd calendars for specific dates are no longer highly reliable due to changes in attendance trends, Magic Key passes, and other factors. Months in advance, it’s difficult to say a particular day will have low, moderate, or heavy crowds—which is why we’ve eliminated our color-coded Disneyland crowd calendars.

This is a trend that began prior to the opening summer of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and continued last summer and early fall as post-reopening crowds were almost completely unpredictable. Literally none of the crowd calendar sites can boast a strong track record for the last two years that Disneyland has been open and, in the interest of full disclosure, that includes us. We are hopeful that things start to normalize by Summer 2024, but we’ll believe it when we see it.

As such, our crowd calendar exists of some best & worst date ranges that should be used as an approximation for patterns—not something you rely heavily upon when booking a trip to Disneyland. While other sites offer numerical crowd calendars for specific dates months (or a year!) in advance, we’d be weary of putting too much weight on those. There are simply too many inconsistent variables for Disneyland crowd calendars to be reliable so far in advance.

With that said, our methodology is based upon historic wait time information, anecdotal observations, special events, school schedules, dynamic ticket prices, Magic Key blockout dates, and more. Second, expect Disney California Adventure crowds to almost always track Disneyland crowds—with a few exceptions—albeit with a proportionately lower number of guests.

Our expectation is that June 2024 will be very similar to last summer.

The entire month of June should have above average crowds. Between local school breaks and summer travel driven largely by tourists, there should not be a significant day of week difference. However, that’ll really come down to whether Magic Key AP sales resume again in early 2024 (we expect that to happen).

For further insight that’s regularly-updated, see Best & Worst Days of the Week to Do Disneyland in 2024 to choose the best individual days within any week. We’d recommend consulting that closer to your travel dates–so no earlier than early May 2024 if you’re visiting in June. (Yes, it’ll take that long before attendance trends for summer are clear.)

Generally speaking, there are three big things that impact June crowds at Disneyland. The first is summer blockouts for Magic Key Passholders, or the lack thereof. The top tier has no blockouts whatsoever in June 2024 and the second tier is only blocked out for June 29, 2024.

With that said, the lowest tier of Magic Key is blocked out the entire month. The next lowest tier is able to visit June 3-6, 2024. Expect all of those dates to be significantly busier as a result, as these Magic Keyholders will visit disproportionately in the few weeks before their blockout, getting “one last visit” prior to the summer blockout months. This causes a spike in crowds prior to the blockout.

Last year, all of those dates had 8/10 or 9/10 crowd levels and were the busiest days in all of June. There’s every reason to believe the same will repeat itself, so avoid June 3-6, 2024. If anything, it’s possible those dates will be more crowded than last year, as there are 2 fewer dates that aren’t blocked out, consolidated crowds even further. We’re forecasting 9/10 crowd levels for those dates in the first week of June 2024.

Second, after the blockout begins, California’s summer tourist season more or less begins. Typically, the influx of vacationers is more or less offsets the locals who are blocked out. The pattern is slightly different, with more guests arriving in the morning but fewer in the evening after work.

Finally, there’s Grad Nites. These are something of a rite of passage for high school seniors in Southern California, as they participate in this once-in-a-lifetime event where they get to experience one final night of high school memories with their friends before they embark on their new adventures.

In 2024, these will occur on June 2, 5, 7, 9, 12 and 14. Generally speaking, Grad Nites cause a spike in crowds on those dates, particularly at Disney California Adventure, and most notably later in the day. Read our Grad Nites at Disneyland post for more info and thoughts on how these evenings impact crowds and the guest experience.

Avoid DCA on all of those dates–last year, crowd levels ranged from 5/10 to 9/10 on Grad Nite dates. For what it’s worth, we were in the parks on multiple Grad Nites dates, and the “feels like” crowds were much worse than the wait times suggested.

As a general matter, beyond those specific dates to avoid, crowds tend to get progressively busier throughout the summer, peaking in early to mid-July and decreasing in August. Expect that to hold true for June 2024. If we had to pick the best date range to visit in the month, it would be during the third week of the month, around June 15-20, 2024. (Specific dates really depend upon whether weekends or weekdays are busier–we’re expecting weekends to continue being better, but there’s no guarantee of that yet.)

That’s the sweet spot after blockouts take effect, after Grad Nites end, is potentially sufficiently after a new celebration begins, and is before summer crowds arrive in full force. While it’s still early and a lot could change in terms of overall trends, that is likely to be the best week of June 2024.

As always, efficient touring plans for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are a good idea. Arriving at rope drop and sticking to a strong itinerary is far more important than any crowd calendar, especially in June 2024 with Disneyland crowd calendars being less reliable than ever.

Single day tickets for the entire month of June are at Peak Season prices. This remains the case for the entirety of summer–until September. Read our Tips for Saving Money on Disneyland Tickets post for multi-day ticket recommendations to avoid having to deal with seasonal pricing.

As far as hotel prices go, rates should also be at their peak for the entirety of June 2024. We rank our favorite (and least favorite) hotels in the Anaheim Resort District in our Disneyland Area Hotel Rankings & Reviews post. Check out discounted hotel + ticket vacation packages on Get Away Today to save money on off-site hotels.

Overall, June is a mixed bag for visiting Disneyland. Early in the month there are more Annual Passholders than normal, which means elevated but inconsistent crowds since most show up after work. Later in the month, there are more tourists than normal, but most are present for the entire day. In terms of summer vacation months, late June is the best option, but it’s still not our favorite time to visit Disneyland.
