June 2013 at Walt Disney World
By Dave Shute
OVERVIEW: JUNE 2013 AT DISNEY WORLD
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.
JUNE 2013 PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
Hotel prices stay at this level all month long.
The past few years, ticket prices have gone up in early June. Buying your tickets early will avoid this increase!

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.
