Disneyland Weather Tips

Did you ever see a movie called "L.A. Story"? Steve Martin plays a weatherman in Los Angeles who is bored with his job because the weather report is simply "Sunny" day after day after day.

That does sum up LA weather. In general, Disneyland temperatures fall between 70 - 86 degrees during the day for most of the year (45 - 63 at night). There is some variation however, from extreme heat (over 100) to rainy and relative cold (40's).

Best Times to Go to Disneyland

Disneyland Weather TipsMay: Beautiful weather and light crowds!
  1. Early September is the best time to visit Disneyland, when the weather is warm and crowds are light.  In late September they'll start decorating for Halloween.
  2. Early May is the second best time to visit Disneyland.  The temperature range is 56 to 75°F and crowds are light.  Toward the end of the month though, things start heating up, both weather-wise and attendance-wise.  Watch for graduation parties on weekends.
  3. Early November before the Thanksgiving traffic rolls in is third.  It's often still shorts and t-shirt weather and crowds are very light.  Nights can be chilly though (low 50's).  They'll start decorating for Christmas in the middle of the month.

Weather vs. Attendance

The chart below shows the estimated monthly attendance alongside average daytime temperatures. You can see that the weather all year is pretty nice but it's best if you can hit the 75-80 range. Colder and you'll be chilly after the wet rides, and warmer will feel downright hot out on that pavement.

To me, this chart says that if you go in May or September you'll have the best chance of light crowds and nice weather.

Does it Rain in Disneyland?

Yes but not often, and when it does, most rides keep operating.See the rainfall trends in the chart below.
