OVERVIEW: JUNE 2013 AT DISNEY WORLD

This page reviews June 2013 Walt Disney World crowds, prices, deals and discounts, weather, operating hours, adds a few other notes, and ends with week by week summaries.

JUNE 2013 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

June crowds traditionally have begun lowish, but were high in 2012.  Moreover, school breaks begin about a week earlier in 2013 than 2012 (see this).

So I’m calling for moderate crowds at the beginning of the month, building quickly by the middle of the month to high levels.  The busiest week of the month will be the week beginning 6/29, whihc includes the Fourth of July–the busiest day of the summer.

See this for more on 2013 crowds at Disney World.

JUNE 2013 PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

June hotel prices begin 50% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 17% higher at the moderates, and 11% at the deluxes.

Hotel prices stay at this level all month long.

For an example of how prices move over 2013, see the image.

The past few years, ticket prices have gone up in early June.  Buying your tickets early will avoid this increase!

JUNE 2013 WEATHER AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

June weather is hot and humid, with afternoon storms common.  It is not quite as bad as July and August, but nearly so.

The hurricane season officially begins on June 1, but hurricanes are rarely a threat until mid-August.

JUNE 2013 OPERATING HOURS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Park operating hours vary by the day, and sometimes change without notice. It is rare for hours to be shorter than Disney has publicized, but Disney may lengthen them in response to unanticipated crowds.

The best way to keep up with operating hours is to check Disney’s official calendars, usually available six months in advance.

These calendars can be found by clicking the following links:

OTHER NOTES AND COMMENTS ON JUNE 2013 AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Star Wars weekends will begin in the middle of the month–likely May 17.–and continue into June.  It looks like the last of these will begin 6/8, although official start and end dates have not yet been announced.

These are of little interest to typical first time visitors  but do crowd Hollywood Studios on the Fridays-Sundays they are on.

My son is graduating from army MP school and taking his girlfriend to Disney world orlando the weekend of June 22nd 2013 next month. He is proposing to her and wanted to try to incorporate it in an event there. Is there anything going on that weekend that this would be possible. He is finishing up his school and has asked me to help him make this special since he has no free time until he gets out of training. Please email me and let me know if you can assist me in helping my son with this special moment. Thank you.
