June in Walt Disney World

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

With the summer in full swing June sees hot temperatures and afternoon thunderstorms that often clear out the parks for a while.

By the time June rolls around summer is in full swing and has the crowds to match the heat. The midday heat in particular can be brutal, June average temperatures range from the low 70s to highs in the 90s pretty much everyday.

One perk of the larger crowds is the longer park operating hours, to maximize time, avoid some of the crowds and the midday heat. Consider rope dropping a park to make use of the early morning hours and lower line times, take a break at your hotel to nap or enjoy the pool during the early afternoon hours, and then return to the parks in the evening for dinner and rides until park closing.

This is also when the humidity increases noticeably and there is a high chance of afternoon thunderstorms most days. If it does rain, and you are able to, wait it out or accept getting wet. The rain often clears out the parks and you will be able to get more rides done. However, the rain also closes down some rides, so be aware of that.

Finally, the past couple of years Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival has extended into June and July. During this festival the park comes alive with beautiful flowers and character topiaries. There are also fun activities, food booths, and a nightly concert to check out.


  • With the higher crowd levels, the park operating hours are longer.

  • It is rare for popular rides to be closed for refurbishment during June.

  • Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival is on-going.

  • Every Disney resort has multiple pools, one main one and additional smaller quiet pools, that are a great way to cool off during the heat of the day.

  • Disney has two great water parks, these are a ticket add on, that have great theming and plenty of great attractions to fill a day with.


  • Crowd levels tend to be high for all of June leading to increased costs and the need to strategize and plan more to maximize time.

  • There is less of a chance of a discount being offered by Disney.

  • The summer weather at Disney can be downright unpleasant at times. The temperature will range from lows in the 70s to highs in the 90s, frequently with high humidity.

  • Expect afternoon showers and pack ponchos/umbrellas and an extra pair of shoes in case one pair gets wet.
