accuweather.com is currently predicting it will be 102 in DL this Friday. Doesn't that seem like they might be exaggerating the heat a bit?

How did you manage that? We are actually considering canceling our trip because of it. I could deal with 90, it'd be hot and uncomfortable but the mornings and evenings would be ok... but when it's 102 even the mornings and evenings are gross

The reason I question it is because they are calling for 106 here in the central valley and if that actually happened it'd be the hottest May day in history. Any time they predict a record it always seems to turn out an exaggeration here.

weather.com has DL at 88 on Friday so 102 may be inaccurate

There's a high pressure system building over the Southwest. We are expecting our first 100 of the year this weekend here as well.

The mornings and evenings shouild be very comfortable in Anaheim. The worst part of the day will be mid afternoon. That's when you head towards the air conditioned shows or an early dinner

Nope sorry plan on that being accurate. I am in the Bay Area and they are telling us a heat wave will be rolling in Tomorrow through Friday. What we get first LA gets next. So stock up on water and sun screen.

Yowza. 102? That is HOT! That's weird because it's been pretty cool here this past week.. I live about 80 miles north of DLR, and we're usually about 10 or more degrees cooler since we're by the beach, and according to accuweather is says in my area it's going to be 85.. So I won't be suprised if it is 102 in Anaheim..

Ick. Hot hot hot.

EDIT: Reading some more it looks like it's going to be some Santa Ana winds in the DLR area too.. Boo. That's the worst..

That is what Fritz the weather guy said on the news last night...hot on Thursday and Friday, in the 100's in the inland areas.

On the plus side, the mornings are always pleasant and it does not get hot until the afternoon. I am not sure I would cancel a trip due to it, as that is simply the high, not the temperature for the entire day. Plan to do outside things in the morning, do some of the inside things with A/C in the afternoon, then take a cool nap/rest before dinner and it will be fine again after dinner.

It is much different here than the muggy, oppressive heat of Orlando, where it gets hot first thing in the morning and never lets up.

Come have fun!

Yeah yesterday accuweather.com said 93 for Friday but this morning they changed it to 102. weather.com says 88 for Friday and a couple other sites said 96. Haven't we made sufficient advancements to be able to predict the temperature 3 days out a little more accurately?

to anyone who has been in the park when it's 95+ degrees, do the crowds behave differently? (aside from the obvious... I'm sure Grizzly will be more popular than usual). I can't imagine sitting on a curb in 102 and watching a parade. Geez, I feel sorry for the poor characters in the parade when it's that hot.

Oh well, that's what A/C is for. :thumbsup2

Now 102 degrees, walking around all day at Disneyland, with all those other hot bodies brushing past you? Um, no thanks. :scared:

I've been there in the past when it's been in the upper 90's and I was miserable. I just wouldn't do it. But that's just me and it's no secret I cannot tolerate the heat.

For any DISers who will be there in that heat, try to stay cool and hydrated!

My husband and I are flying down from Seattle Friday Night. We will be in DL Saturday and Sunday. I am SO hoping it isnt too hot. We hate the heat. LOL. Last year we went in May and it was triple digits all 3 days. (they broke records!) I thought it was fluke as I had also been the previous may and it was in the 70's. I can't believe its gonna happen again. I will still have a fabulous time tho!:dance3:

It will be close to 100 I think... I live in Venice and at the beach on that day it is supposed to be in the mid 80's.. so it makes since 30 miles inland that it would be near or around 100!

That is HOT! It is supposed to be 106 here on Thursday in the San Francisco Bay area. And believe me for us that is hot. And 102 in Anaheim is miserable. I have been there when it has been in the low 90's and that was miserable. Because not only do you have the heat but you have the humidity from being so close to the ocean. Thankfully though when you are in Disneyland there are wonderful places that are air conditioned.

I was there for the 100+ degree heat at the end of April with the Ladies Only group. There are some great places to get away from the heat:

Any inside show: Aladdin, Tiki Room, Billy Hill @ the Golden Horshoe, Golden Dreams, Tortilla Tour, Sourdough Tour, Animation Studio (Turtle Talk, etc.), Innoventions (Asimo show, Videophone with Stitch), HISTA (well, if you're that desperate) ;)

Outdoor, shady places to hide from the sun: Bug's Land, Redwood Creek play area, some places on TSI Pirate's Lair.

Or just go on GRR over and over again (remember FP's aren't connected to the system, so just keep gettin' them -- the standy que will be SUPER long).

Drink lots of water (refill at the Baby Center or First Aid station in DL with ice cold, filtered water), take it slow, and you can still have a good time.

I thought that the OP was talking more about it being that Hot in May.. Well it is normal to have funky weather from cold to blistering hot in Southern CA.

Our weather sometimes has no rhyme or reason. Especially with months right before and right after the summer months!

I lived in SoCal for 28 years from San Diego to Santa Barbara, and inland, and like most places you are correct that it is hard to say what the weather will be like in May or September. It does appear that 102 is the record high though for May, with 40 being the record low (presumably at night).

I've been to DL about 20 times and never has it been over 90... I guess I've just been lucky (plus, we tend to avoid the summer months).

How is the queue for rides like Indiana in 95+ temperatures? It's in the shade but it seems like it has the potential to get kinda stuffy. Is the indoors portion of the Space Mountain queue kept cool? In that kinda heat standing in an air conditioned line would feel like a blessing.

Here in Vegas it gets so unbearable but add a little bit of humidity and.....it could be way worse! I lived really close to Anaheim growing up and don't remember it being that hot.

Here in Vegas it gets so unbearable but add a little bit of humidity and.....it could be way worse! I lived really close to Anaheim growing up and don't remember it being that hot.Last June we were there for four days around June 24 and it never got above 82-83 degrees - which is typical for June.

IMO most people get too worked up about the temperatures at DLR. Yes, there are the 100 degree days. Sometimes. I have been there on such a day and still had a blast. But generally it averages mid-to-low 80's all summer long for the highs and is just not very hot. Most mornings start out at 68-70 degrees and at midnight it is back to low-70's. Some people will not be satisfied unless it is a constant 74 degrees round the clock day and night. I think DLR summer temperatures are ideal. ON AVERAGE.

IMHO people who will complain about high temps in the mid-to-low 80's and evening and morning temps in the low-70's will complain about anything... :cool2:

They should spent a winter in Northern Canada, they wouldn't be complaining so much about the heat after that :rotfl:

I agree that over 100 degrees is really hot but if you have lots of water and take some breaks in the shade you should be fine, I would rather have nice weather over cold and rainy. JMHO

I just checked the Mega Doppler and the forecast reads 98 degrees Hot & Dry for Los Angeles Metro-Orange County.

Please wear light colored cotton clothing, hat, sunglasses sunscreen and keep hydrated with water.

I have a Premium Annual Pass and frequent DL/DCA very often. When the forecast predicts a Hot day, I generally will not go during the day. But I know not everyone can just head out to DL/DCA for the evening.

I know they'll let you bring your own bottled water into the park so I don't see why they wouldn't let you bring a spray bottle in.

It was 101 when I arrived on 4/27 around 2:00pm. I was standing in the line for the ticket booth with shorts on, I couldn't stand still because the heating coming off the cement was burning my legs. I just went in to get something to eat and then went back to the hotel for awhile until the evening (I was there Sunday to Thursday), it was just too hot. Luckily it cooled off the rest of the week.

There really is no "normal" anymore in So Cal. I spent 30 yrs growing up/etc in the San Gabriel Valley & the OC. I''ve been reading so many posts the past 6-8 weeks about this day or that day getting over 90, 95, 99. Call it global warming or whatever you want, but all of the charts and graphs of historic temps are getting totally distorted now that a seemingly cool season (Spring - it IS still spring) has so many days hotter than 90.

I remember several days of 95-100+ while working in FL - Fantasyland (FL - not Florida) during the late 80's. There weren't a ton, but there were certainly those days. It's HOT outside in the lines, etc, - but try spending a whole shift in a ridiculous polyester costume all day! That was no fun.

I "can't wait" for my days at DL this weekend. I'll definitely be bringing my water along!! :)

We live about 10 miles from DL, and the weather forecasters have been predicting this for about a week. Friday and Saturday are going to be the worst days. And ironically, by the following Friday, it's supposed to be back in the upper 60s. Go figure.

We've been at DL in weather like this in the past, and for me, it's the lack of shade that is the worst. Many times, there is a nice breeze that can cool you off. My advice is find shade for the early afternoon times. As many PPs have said, it won't start out at 100 degrees at 8am - it should be in the upper 60s when you start, and by about 5pm will start cooling down.

Good luck to everyone this weekend!

Hey we used to live in Venice. DH grew up there.

As for the weather if they are predicting rain it seems like the further south you are the less likely you will get rain. It can be raining in Santa Monica where DH works and never rain here and we are around 30 miles south of Santa Monica.

Rain at Disneyland is wonderful! The parks clear out, and you can run around in your poncho and have a great time!

But I was told to NOT ride CA Screamin' in the rain, as the take-off+rain feels like needles are being thrown in your face.

Grizzly in the rain, however, is great! (though my opinion might be different than others on that, as I rode it in the rain, at night, in December and didn't mind the cold at all)

Awww..this weekend looks much better than last. I have to say it was BLOODY HOT on both Friday and Saturday of last week. (pretty humid also for this desert dweller) I've lived in Vegas too and since I worked on the strip in a nice air conditioned casino, drove an air conditioned car and had great air at home it wasn't bad at all. Nicer than New Mexcio where those swamp coolers just don't cut it some days.
Anyways..yes, it was hot and crowded, especially on Saturday, but still do-able with some planning, water, wet cloth and ice cream. I have never seen so many sweaty people and flushed faced kids though...
I was so hoping for cool weather..now that we are gone, you all have a nice pleasant weather trip :)

Yes! I was there too and it was VERY hot! I was burning up! Saturday, DL was super busy! We avoided and was at DCA the whole day it except for the early morning and at night after DCA closed. DCA was much much more tolerable than DL seemed. Friday, Sunday, and Monday were also very hot, but DL wasn't as crowded. On Monday I was waiting for it to cool down, and it didn't. :headache:

Ughh..sorry it was still hot for you! We were sure once we left Saturday night it would be lovely. We had arrived the Wednesday before and it was warm, not hot, and could walk on rides with no wait. That was great! Good thing, because we could do very little on Saturday before we left (after getting all our junk checked out and trying to get the front desk at GC to understand why I had a credit on my account and was owned money). The lines were INSANE and the line for a Dole Whip was nuts so I didn't get one..I remembered the tip here and went inside to try, but that line was long too, and I discovered there was no exit if you weren't staying for the show.(we had run out of time and couldn't) so I had to climb over the bamboo fence to escape. Next time I will get the darn Dole Whip even though it will be January and probably the coldest day in history.

Ughh..sorry it was still hot for you! We were sure once we left Saturday night it would be lovely. We had arrived the Wednesday before and it was warm, not hot, and could walk on rides with no wait.

It's okay! We still had a blast! The line for the Dole Whips was long the whole weekend. We got one at night, so it wasn't bad.. But every time we walked by during the day the line was sooo long. Even from inside the Tiki Room waiting area..

On Friday there was the LONGEST line to Splash's Fast Pass! I was in shock!! The line was around the corner! I think people we're getting confused on what was the line to get a FP and what was the actual stand by line. But all the times I've been to DLR I have never seen a FP line that long.. It was nuts.. :scared1:

Just back from DL and it did rain/sprinkle a bit, it was chilly and hot at times when the clouds did clear, but it was L o V e L y! I wouldn't have changed the weather if I could've!
I have a new perspective of DL weather! ;) :idea: :goodvibes
