Disneyland Resort Wait Times for June 2023
Memorial Day Weekend is in the books…and the month of May has gone with it.
We know from Disney’s recent reports that its American theme parks are doing remarkably well in terms of profit and, presumably, attendance.
How has the renewed popularity impacted the park crowds? Let’s check with the Disneyland Wait Times for June 2023.
As a reminder, we call this the June wait times, but we’re examining the data for the previous month, which was May.
Typically, May counts as the offseason at Disney theme parks, presuming such a concept even exists these days.
We know from historic data that May rarely claims the same crowd levels as April, June, or July, though.
The only x-factors that could change that are one reopening and one closing.
At Disneyland Park, Mickey’s Toontown reopened in March but had previously added an E-ticket attraction, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, in January.
So, this section of the park has engaged tourists more than it had in MANY years.
Honestly, other than one infamous fight at Mickey’s Toontown, the place hadn’t drawn a consistent crowd during the 21st century.
The new update has changed that, as fans flock to the most adaptive themed land in existence today.
Meanwhile, the other reason guests may have spent more time at the park this past month is…well, the reason you know.
As MickeyBlog chronicled this week, Splash Mountain finally closed at Disneyland Park.
During its final few days in existence, many loyal Disneyland fans repeatedly rode one of their favorites.

Let’s Talk about Disneyland Wait Times
Okay, last month I said that if you waited longer for Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin than Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, you were doing it wrong.
This month, the same thing happened again. Are you people even listening to me???
I kid, but that’s a great example of poor use of Disneyland theme park time.
You’ve got a slightly modified ride that turns 30 in January and the first Mickey & Minnie Mouse ride ever. Pick the latter, folks! Come on!
Anyway, the average guest waited for an average of 30 minutes, which is two minutes less than the previous month. That’s about what I would have expected.
This data shows that demand for Splash Mountain heightened during its final month.
As a reminder, when the Magic Kingdom version closed, we joked that the one at Disneyland required 20-minute waits during the same week.
So, Splash Mountain’s demand did triple as its ending approached. Now, we all wait until Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens in a little more than a year.
Disney California Adventure
Other than a few new Marvel character greetings, nothing much changed at Disney California Adventure this month.
The next big happening occurs when the new San Fransokyo opens in a few weeks. Until then, the wait times should be fairly static.
For the past month, here were the park’s average waits:
- Radiator Springs Racers – 75 minutes, down 15
- Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! – 59 minutes, up 5
- Toy Story Midway Mania! – 53 minutes, down 4
- WEBSLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure – 50 minutes, down 7
- Soarin’ Around the World – 46 minutes, down 13
- Goofy’s Sky School – 43 minutes, down 6
- Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley’s to the Resuce! – 43 minutes, down 2
- The Incredicoaster – 40 minutes, down 5
- Pixar Pal-A-Round – 34 minutes, down 2
- Grizzly River Run – 30 minutes, down 7
- Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters – 30 minutes, down 2
- Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind – 22 minutes, down 4
- Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree – 20 minutes, down 4
- Silly Symphony Swings – 18 minutes, up 3
- The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure – 16 minutes, down 3
- Jumpin’ Jellyfish – 13 minutes, down 5
- Golden Zephyr – 12 minutes, down 4
- Mickey’s PhilharMagic – 12 minutes, no change
- Jessie’s Critter Carousel – 7 minutes, down 4
Overall, guests at DCA waited for an average of 32 minutes per attraction, which is five minutes less than last month.
I should explain one change here. During the food festival here, Disney operates the classic version of Soarin’ Over California.
When DCA does this, Soarin’s popularity spikes. So, the drop here reflects that we’re back to the new and improved but not as California version.
Also, The Little Mermaid didn’t get much of a bump from the release of the new film.
However, we could still see the attraction rise in coming days if the film, unlike Ariel, has legs.
