Looking for the cute Disneyland outfits? I'm breaking down what to wear to Disneyland by season, and sharing my must-haves for comfortable and stylish days at the park!
Let's talk Disney days. As Disneyland annual pass holders, we head to Disneyland a LOT. And when I asked y'all what Disneyland questions you wanted answered…..a TON of you said, you wanted Disneyland outfits tips. You wanted to know what to wear to Disneyland. What was actually comfortable? What lasts all day? What do we wear at different times of the year? So, I'm breaking it all down. What to wear to Disneyland by season.
A few general rules of thumb: think comfort, think long wear (something you can wear for 12 – 18 hours), think being on your feet, and bring layers. The temperature in the early morning and evening can be SIGNIFICANTLY cooler than mid-day temperatures in Anaheim.
In Fall and Spring, the weather tends to be very easy for Disneyland outfits (that's why we pay those ridiculous Southern California housing prices). You'll be set with some light layers. My go-to cute Disneyland outfits in fall and spring? A comfortable pair of stretchy jeans, a cute Disney tee, comfortable shoes and a light sweatshirt or a light jacket for morning and evening.

Another option for Disneyland outfits for spring or fall? I love a great dress that can easily be layered with a jean jacket or sweater. These Hill House Nap Dresses are my favorite for all day comfy park wear!
While we don't exactly have snow here in LA, during the winter the temperatures at Disneyland can get pretty cold. Plan for multiple layers, and bring a hat and scarf for those cold mornings and evenings. I tend to layer a long-sleeved tee and sweatshirt, plus bring a jacket. My latest favorite? A great spirit jersey and a thick sweatshirt.

Now let's talk summer heat. This is definitely the hardest time to dress for…..cause that heat? Gets up over 100 degrees on a regular basis. While you may need warmer layers the rest of the year, you'll be removing those layers in the summer. For summer, think SUPER comfortable shorts and a light tee. Sandals that support (like these saltwater sandals or my favorite Birkenstocks) will last through the full day at the park. Bring a very light sweatshirt for early mornings, and be sure to pack a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes.

There are a few items that I love for Disney Outfits year round……..be sure to invest in a great pair of sneakers……and a couple of pairs of fun ears. Those are What to Wear to Disneyland requirements!

Frequently Asked Questions about What to Wear to the Disneyland Resort:
Is it a good idea to bring extra clothes? This totally depends on your plans for what your Disneyland trip will look like. Do you plan to go on water rides? Then a change of clothes or shoes might be a good idea (you can always store things in the lockers). Is there rain on the horizon? Then you may want to bring rain gear just in case. These things aren't as pressing the warmer months. Even if you get wet, you'll dry pretty quickly!
Are there major temperature drops after dark? Is there often unexpected cold weather? In the winter months, the temperature can vary and it definitely cools off after dark (I've seen it drop to below 40 degrees fahrenheit). The forecast is normally pretty accurate, and keep in mind that Disneyland is usually open until midnight, so you may be there LATE. For me? I check what the temperature will be at the LATEST time we plan to be there, and bring layers appropriate for that. Not to repeat myself but, the lockers are your best friend here. We store warmer jackets and hats until we need them during late nights or chilly mornings. I also bring extra layers (like shirts with long sleeves and dry socks for after that Splash Mountain ride) just in case and store them as well!
Does the Disneyland Park have a dress code? There are some pretty simple rules for outfits for Disneyland (and most are just….common sense). Costumes can not be worn by guests over the age of 13 (with the exception of special events like Oogie Boogie Bash). Bare feet are not allowed, and there are general reminders that Disneyland is a family friendly environment so clothing should be reasonable for that. Same goes for visible tattoos (basically, use good judgement knowing kids will be present).
We are planning our first Disneyland vacation, does everyone need Disney family shirts? My answer to this is…..NEED? No. Does your entire family WANT to wear Disney family shirts? Then do it, it can be really fun (and looks great in photos). If not? Then don't. The point is to be comfortable and to have a good time. Whatever is a good option for all day comfort? WEAR THAT.
Is the climate similar to Walt Disney World? NOT at all. California weather is totally different than Florida weather. We have zero humidity. You'll have a dry heat during the warmer weather months and cool weather with little rain in the cooler seasons. Be sure to check the weather, and not assume that one is similar to the other (you can see all my favorite options for Walt Disney World outfits HERE).
