juneheader - June 2018 at Disney World

June at Disney World is when the summer crowds really start to kick in and the temperatures are officially HOT.

Some tips for traveling in June:

  • Traveling to Disney World during a busier time means you have to be extra diligent about having a good touring plan. As long as you're zigging while other people zag, you'll do fine.
  • Weather in June at Disney World is hot. Consider taking mid-day breaks from the sun and crowds during your trip.

(Example alerts: "park hours just released," "event tickets just went on sale")

Explanation of park recommendations and abbreviations below
In general, I recommend avoiding parks with Extra Magic Hours because they tend to be the busiest parks that day. Animal Kingdom is an exception because it's usually not too bad, even on EMH days.

Magic Kingdom usually sees a surge on Saturdays, so other parks are usually a better choice.

MK = Magic Kingdom, EP = Epcot, HS = Hollywood Studios, AK = Animal Kingdom,
TL = Typhoon Lagoon, BB = Blizzard Beach, EMH = Extra Magic Hour
