Disneyland Paris July Weather
July and August are the warmest months of the year at Disneyland Paris. The average temperature at Disneyland Paris in July is around 15-25°C (59-77°F). However, we have visited the park in July and see the temperate in the high 30’s, and the next day was a day of non-stop rain.
As the weather can be unpredictable so we always advise checking the 14 and 7 day forecast before you visit to make sure you pack suitable clothing.
If you visit during July, you may still experience a rainy day, however, this is nothing like a rainy day in Walt Disney World. If any unexpected weather occurs, Disneyland Paris is located only a 5 minute UBER ride away from the Val d’Europe Shopping Centre, which allows you to quickly buy any essentials or additional clothing.
Our Top Tips for Visiting Disneyland Paris in July
One of our biggest tips for guests staying at Disneyland Paris during the month of July is to stay on-site, and book early, if you budget allows it. When creating this guide, we found that many Disney hotels were actually cheaper than partner hotels. The DLP Hotels are located very close to the parks with each only a short 5-10 minute walk or bus ride to and from the park, which makes it far easier to change clothes, add extra layers or take a break if needed!
Our other top tips include;
- Take advantage of Extra Magic Time (EMT). During springtime, the park will begin to have longer opening hours, and by using this extra time you have more chance of doing everything you want during your Disney holiday.
- Meet Disney characters in your hotel. Each morning or evening you can meet a selection of Disney Characters with your hotel, and you can often find even shorter queue lines. Plus you are indoors, keeping warm!
- Take appropriate clothing! We always advise you check the weather forecast before you visit and plan to take suitable clothing options. If you plan to sit and wait for parades or stay in the parks to watch the illuminations and the fireworks you may still feel the cold!
