What to Wear to Disneyland in January

January is one of the busiest times of year to visit Disneyland, and for good reason! It is a great idea to plan a Disneyland trip. The holidays are over, school is still out, and the weather in Southern California is absolutely perfect. With average temperatures in the mid-60s, you can expect plenty of sunshine and clear skies.

So what should you wear to Disneyland in January for your first visit? We recommend light layers that you can easily add or remove as needed. A tank top or t-shirt with a cardigan or light jacket is always a good choice.

You’ll also want to bring along a scarf or pashmina to keep you warm in the evenings at the amusement parks! These stylish outfits are great examples of how to dress for Disneyland!

What to Wear to Disneyland in February

February is another great time to visit Disneyland, as the weather is still mild and the crowds are manageable. Average temperatures hover in the low-60s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day. Be sure to pack a sweater or jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down.

What to Wear to Disneyland in March

March is a great month to visit Disneyland, as the weather isn’t too bad besides a couple of rainy days. Average temperatures are in the mid-60s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day. In March, there are so many festivities and rides to explore.

This is also a good time to walk around in your most comfortable shoes and enjoy all of the restaurants and special events. You are guaranteed to have a dapper day because the daytime temperatures are to die for!

Just use good judgment for night time temperatures because that’s when the cold weather can come out.

What to Wear to Disneyland in April

April is a great time to visit Disneyland, as the California weather is pleasant and the crowds are relatively low. Average temperatures are in the mid-65 range, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day.

An important part of the Disney experience especially in Orange County is taking a visit to all of the parks. So, it is a great idea to bring a water bottle along with your favorite tank tops for hot days in April.

What to Wear to Disneyland in May

May is a great time to take a Disney vacation, as the weather is guaranteed to be warm, but keep in mind it is the rainy season. Average temperatures are in the mid-70s, which is a good deal, unlike the winter months. These cute outfits are great examples of how to dress for Disneyland!

So you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves or a nice tank top during the day. During this month of the year, you may want to walk around in bare feet because it’s so hot, but this is a great time to pack some flip-flops (to avoid sharp objects) and your favorite Disney-themed t-shirts. 

What to Wear to Disneyland in June

June is a great time to visit Disneyland, as the weather is pleasant and the crowds aren’t too bad. Average temperatures are in the mid-70s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day, but make sure you keep it appropriate since it is a family environment and there are kids of all years of age.

Be sure to pack a sweater or jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down. You’ll also want to bring along a scarf or pashmina to keep you warm in the evenings. Even though this is during the summer months, there will still be chilly mornings.

So, it helps to bring something such as a jean jacket or lightweight jacket for those types of days. Don’t forget to bring light tennis shoes for days with perfect weather when you want to get in a run.

What to Wear to Disneyland in July

July is a great time to visit Disneyland, as the weather is pleasant and the crowds are pretty manageable and easy to deal with. Average temperatures are in the mid-70s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day especially if you are going to splash mountain.

A great thing about visiting in July is that you won’t want to stay in the hotel room because it is so hot. There may be rainy days, but you will have lots of sunny days during the week to go on water rights and find things to do like the Grizzly River Run or visiting the Star Wars park.

One of the first things to keep in mind is that you can avoid extra costs at the Disney parks or water rides by getting passes or a wristband from Amazon (with free shipping) in advance. This is a good option for large families or when the whole family is coming along.

What to Wear to Disneyland in August

August is a great time to visit Disneyland, as the weather is pleasant and the crowds are relatively low. Average temperatures are in the mid-65-70s, so you’ll be comfortable in long sleeves during the day or even full-length princess dresses.

Jean shorts may not be the way to go and you might want light yoga pants. Bring good walking shoes to your Disneyland visit for long walks during your magical day. You won’t want to cover your entire body or visible tattoos, but there can be inappropriate attire. Make sure to check the dress code and then find the perfect outfit to wear.

What to Wear to Disneyland in September

September is a great time to visit Disneyland, as the weather is pleasant and the crowds are relatively low. Average temperatures are in the mid-70s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day. Be sure to pack a sweater or jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down.

You’ll also want to bring along a scarf or pashmina to keep you warm in the evenings. And don’t forget to pack your sunscreen! These are great examples of how to dress for Disneyland!

What to Wear to Disneyland in October

October is a great time to visit the happiest place on earth (AKA Disneyland), as the weather is pleasant and the crowds are relatively low. It is a great option for your first time going to southern California as well, or to any of the Disney parks.

Average temperatures are in the mid-60s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day. The dress code may be different at night though. It is a good idea to pack a sweater or jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down.

October is one of the best times to visit the Disneyland resort because there are so many events with cast members (who have specific costume guidelines), and there are Halloween decorations galore. You can find many costume props at the shops and dress up like your favorite character (we recommend cute full-length princess dresses).

There are a lot of acceptable accessories that you can buy from small businesses online. It is a good time to go if it’s you’re second time going to Disneyland or Disneyland Paris even.

What to Wear to Disneyland in November

November is a great time to visit Disney theme parks, as the weather is pleasant and the crowds may be somewhat building up since it’s not rainy season. Average temperatures are in the mid-60s, so you’ll be comfortable in short sleeves during the day.

Be sure to pack a sweater or jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down. This is the perfect time to bring out your best Disneyland outfits, and put together some extra layers for different times of the day. 

What to Wear to Disneyland in December

December is the best time to go on a Disneyland vacation, as the warmer weather in California is pleasant and the crowds are relatively low, so you are guaranteed to have a magical time. An important thing to remember is that average temperatures unlike warmer months, are in the mid-50s, so you may not be comfortable in short sleeves during the day or in the early mornings.

Be sure to use common sense, and pack a sweater or light jacket for the evening, as it can get chilly once the sun goes down in the winter months. Make sure to use good judgment and check the local weather report no matter what time of year.

You’ll also want to bring along a scarf to keep you warm in the evenings for any Disney California adventure because you won’t want excessive portions of the skin showing especially when you see Mickey Mouse.

No matter your fashion sense, there is a great outfit for you to wear to any Disneyland Park or Walt Disney World! Just be sure to pack for the weather and you’ll be all set to enjoy your day at the happiest place on earth!

An insider tip: grab your mickey ears and park tickets, or look into becoming one of the annual pass holders for a small commission. That is the scoop on how to dress for Disneyland!
