What to Pack, What to Wear in June
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.
In general:Check June hours up to 6 weeks in advance.
Disneyland is open 14 to 16 hours per day, every day. California Adventure hours may be slightly shorter.
With the exception of really major renovations that take many months, one advantage of the busier times at Disneyland is that all the rides will be running, except for brief closures to do routine maintenance.

Disneyland Crowds in June
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 that not blocked out for annual passholders, expect larger-than-normal crowds. Check the passholder calendar for dates. The new attraction will often stay busy throughout the summer following its opening.
