Are you headed to Tokyo Disney Resort in the month of June? Here’s what is happening in terms of crowds, weather, closures, and updates to merchandise, food, and events!
I am a bit late with this one, but I figured better late than never!
Easter ended mid-June and Tanabata Days began on June 15, 2017. Which means we get two versions of the Today Guides (read what they are at the bottom of this post)! My full videos below walk you through what’s new in terms of merchandise, food, and entertainment.
Merchandise & Food
A number of new merchandise and food is available at the parks for June:
- Japan Disney Store Part One & Part Two
- Tokyo Disney Resort Part One & Part Two
- Tanabata Days Merchandise
The crowds for the month of June are on the lower end most days (except weekends). Consult TDRNavi for the latest predictions. The best days are Tuesday through Thursday to visit. There are a lot of school trips happening this month, so that tends to fluctuate the crowds a little (teenagers tend to hang out at the counter service restaurants or go on the thrill rides).
On average June is the rainy season, which has been almost non-existent this year. The temperature is between the 20-25°C (68-77°F). For other months, make sure to read our article on when to visit (it breaks down each month for you).
If it does rain, expect most outdoor entertainment altered or canceled. Most parades will have a rain day version (even the Tanabata Days Greeting). Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights is canceled but replaced with Nightfall Glow, which only comes out in the rain.
Here’s what is closed or under refurbishment for the month of June. Keep in mind that they stick to the schedule in most cases and things do not open early or late unless noted. For the most up-to-date list, consult the official website.

What is the Today Guide?
The “Today Guide” is a useful fold-out informational guide for the latest entertainment, merchandise, food, and general information for both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Which changes on a monthly basis with new and updated information (and a cute collectible design). The only problem is, it’s offered only in Japanese.
There is an English guide map (along with other languages) but it only has general information and entertainment schedule. You miss out on some critical information that’s useful when you are in the park. That’s why we are creating these monthly features to help you better plan your trip!
