Is Disneyland Paris open in June?

So first things first – is Disneyland Paris open in June? The good new is that it is absolutely open. In fact Disneyland Paris is open every day of the year so even if you are visiting on Christmas Day, Halloween or Easter you will be able to enter and enjoy the parks.
 
So the next thing we need to ask is …

Are Disneyland Paris rides open in June?

June isn’t a month when there are typically lots of ride closures. Disneyland likes to complete park maintenance outside of the peak seasons so usually undertakes large parts of its maintenance in January or February
 
If rides are closed in June it is likely because they have had a rider error which usually resolves itself relatively quickly. Other closures are more long time but will be well advertised before you travel so it is worth checking the maintenance and refurbishment schedule before booking if there is a particular ride you are hoping to ride. 
 
Another reason for ride closures can be heavy rain and storms. Fortunately in June these are relatively few and rain is unlikely to affect your Disneyland Paris Itinerary. 
 
Note: If you are due to get very heavy rain or storms during your trip you may want to check out our dedicated visiting Disneyland Paris in the rain tips post.

Is Disneyland Paris crowded in June?

The truth is that as the weather in Paris heads towards summer, you will find that the crowds start to swell. I would say that June  is the start of the peak summer season but the crowds are definitely not at their highest in June. 

Depending on the year of travel it is worth mentioning that the start of June may be crowded if the Whitsun holidays in the UK run into June which they sometimes do. 

Note: it may come as no surprise that it is almost always quieter at Disneyland Paris on a weekday as opposed to the weekend (outside of holidays when all bets are off). Be sure to check out this guide of best day to visit Disneyland Paris for more comprehensive information. 

If you are traveling to Disneyland Paris with toddlers or are doing an adults only trip to Disneyland Paris and want to travel when the weather is good it may be worth considering early June once the schools have gone back from the Whitsun vacation as a good time to travel. 

Are there any special events at Disneyland Paris in June 

Special events are another thing that can have a huge impact on the park crowds. In June there is just one special event which could lead to additional crowds and that is Disneyland Paris Pride. 

This is an additional ticketed evening event and is very popular.

In 2023 Disneyland Paris Pride will be held on 17th June 2023. 

Disneyland Paris Crowd Calendar June 2023 / 2024

In France in June 2023 there are no public holidays. Therefore there is no public holidays in France to avoid in June 2023 for booking your trip to Disneyland Paris. However in some years Whit Monday may fall in June which will cause the crowds to swell. 

Note: The next year Whit Monday falls in June is actually 2025 so this shouldn’t be a problem for a couple of years. 

However although Whit Monday doesn’t fall in June it is worth being aware that the Whitsun UK school holidays are likely to run until June 6th in 2023 so the first week of June is likely to be very crowded. 

Additionally the 17th June is likely to be crowded due to the pride celebrations. If you wish to experience Disneyland Paris during Pride then do head to the parks but be warned a lot of people love celebrating Pride in the parks. 

We will update this information with the 2024 Whitsun Holiday dates once these have been formally announced. For more information on the best time to visit Disneyland Paris check out this post.

Best places to stay at Disneyland Paris in June?

If your Disneyland Paris budget will stretch to it then we recommend staying on site while at Disneyland Paris. The reasons for this are because of the extra perks being an on-site guest gets you. 

These can be summarised as

  • easiest accessibility to the parks – either waking distance or shuttle bus is provided to onsite guests. 
  • Amenities – some of the on site hotels have swimming pools (the more high end ones) – which are great to relax in after long days in the park especially in the summer when the parks get v hot. 
  • Meet and Greets – usually in the morning and evening. It will be one character – you won’t be told who though usually it is one of the fab six, and they will be available to meet in the foyer. The queues here are much less than in the park so a great way to adding some autographs to your Disney autograph book
  • Early Magic Hours – you get in the parks earlier than general public which optimises your time in the park and has shorter queue times.

Best things to do at Disneyland Paris in June

The Parades

Is Disneyland Paris crowded in April

 

This is another must whatever time of year you visit. I find June is one of the best times to watch the parades as you are unlikely to get wet while waiting but the sun is not at its strongest – let me tell you waiting for the afternoon parade in August can be a hot and sticky situation.  

Watch Mickey and the magician 

Mickey and the Magician is my favorite show in the park and is top of my Disneyland Paris Bucket list. The show is on at the Walt Disney Studios and usually runs FebruarySeptember.  If this is on during your visit in June be sure to add this to your itinerary. 

Explore the Castle

Disneyland Paris has the most beautiful castle of any castle around the world in my humble opinion. Take some time to explore the castle and see the beautiful stained glass and tapestries as well as facing the dragon in the dungeon.

Do character meet and greets

Character meet and greets are a must on any Disneyland Paris Itinerary. If you are traveling outside of public holidays or UK school holidays the lines for these should be less than if you were traveling in the peak peak season. 
 
We recommend picking your must meet characters and prioritising these in case the lines are long.
