The average high temperatures at Disneyland in August are in the mid 80s to mid 90s and lows are in the mid 60s.


There is generally not much rain in August and the forecast at Disneyland calls for sunny or partly cloudy days. Sounds great to me!

Pack Rain Ponchos


Although it doesn’t rain much in August at Disneyland, I always take disposable ponchos with me.

My kids are not big fans of getting wet on rides. Splash Mountain happens to be one of my favorite attraction, so wearing a poncho while riding, allows me to still enjoy it!


Check our these inexpensive disposable ponchos!


It is so much easier to carry around a couple of ponchos than it is to bring a spare set of clothes for my kids when the get wet.

Pack Sun Protection


The California sun can be brutal in August.Make sure that you are ready for the UV rays by packing some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses

Also, make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!


Pack Clothing for Warm Weather, but Bring a Jacket


The mornings and evenings at Disneyland can get a little chilly in August, especially if you take advantage of Magic Mornings.


This can make packing a little tricky.


In August, you will want to wear shorts or capris and a short-sleeved top, but I would definitely recommend bringing a lightweight jacket or sweatshirt.

Make sure that it is light enough that you can keep it in a backpack or tied around your waist.
