Guide to Going to Disney World in June
Crowds at Disney World in June
If you take a look at any of the Disney crowd calendars you will see that June is one of the busiest time of the year. As soon as school gets out across the country, the parks begin to fill up with families.
The best time to go to Disney in June is the first week. After that, most schools in Florida and the rest of the East Coast slowly begin to get out.
Getting to the park when it opens is critical and even by doing that you can expect long lines and wait times for most rides & attractions.
You should consider using the Genie+ Lightning Lane system if you want to ride the most popular rides.

Weather in Disney World in June
June is a pretty brutal month in terms of heat. You will find that while the temps might be in the low 90’s, it is going to feel more like the high 90’s.
And why is that? Its because of the humidity.
If you aren’t familiar with Florida humidity, it is when you feel like you are sweating when you are standing still. It’s sticky and at times, unbearable.
This is totally normal weather for Florida in the summer and you are going to have to do your best to stay hydrated and cool.
Thank goodness Disney is prepared with free cold water and misting fans that can be found throughout the Disney parks.
You will usually find that a short rainfall will occur in the afternoon which provides a little cooling, but eventually the humidity reappears.
Don’t let this rain bother you.
It happens just about every day in the summer.
This is why it is imperative that you stay hydrated at the park, bring a poncho and a misting fan!
It will make the difference in how well you are able to tolerate the heat.
Add a Disney Waterpark to Your Vacation
One of the things you really should take advantage of when visiting Disney World in June is the waterparks.
Disney World has two and they are a great way to beat the summer heat.
Take a look at both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach so that you can make an educated choice in which one is best for your family!
