What to Wear to Disneyland in April: Your Perfect Outfit Ideas and Packing List for 2024!

Drip, drip, drop, little April showers should tell you everything you need to know about what to wear to Disneyland in April.

Spring has sprung and April is one of the best times to visit Disneyland.

The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and the temperature is that perfect comfortable middle ground between the chill of winter and the blazing heat of summer.

Plus, Anaheim’s weather in April is ideal for spending time outdoors!

This allows you to make the most of your time at either Disneyland or California Adventure without wanting to run indoors to escape the heat or the cold.

While Anaheim weather in April is relatively reliable, as spring is a shoulder season, the temperatures can still be a little temperamental, so knowing what to pack for Disneyland in April is very important for your trip.

With an average of just two days of rain in April, Anaheim is relatively dry throughout the month.

Let me go over a few of my favorite outfits to wear when visiting Disneyland in April.


April days at Disneyland are warm and a t-shirt is ideal for keeping cool as the temperatures rise.

If you don’t feel the cold easily, shorts are a great option when packing for Disneyland in April.

Personally, I like a good shorts and sweater combo is perfect for the chilly mornings and cooler evenings.

A simple outfit with a t-shirt and either shorts or pants is perfect, just make sure you layer up too.
