OVERVIEW: JULY 2016 AT DISNEY WORLD

July 2016 at Walt Disney World from yourfirstvisit.netThis page reviews July 2016 Walt Disney World crowds, prices, deals and discounts, weather, and operating hours; adds a few other notes; and ends with week by week summaries.

Because pretty much every US school kid is on break in July, July overall is the most crowded month at Walt Disney World.

Prices begin the month OK at the deluxes and moderates, and high at the values. Moderate and value prices stay at this level all month, but at the deluxes prices drop to low levels on July 12.

Weather is miserably hot and humid all month long.

There are no good weeks in July, but the later the visit the better–especially if you are staying in a deluxe.

JULY 2016 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Trips that include the Fourth of July will see the highest crowds of the month. Crowds improve slightly after, but all of July  is rough, as pretty much all US schoolkids are out of school.

On a crowd scale of 1-11, the week beginning 6/25 has a crowd rating of 9/high, the week beginning 7/2 a rating of 10/higher highest, and the rest of July 9/high.

See this for more on 2016 crowds at Disney World.

JULY 2016 PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Prices begin the month 45% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 15% higher than the lowest of the year at the moderates, and 10% higher than the lowest of the year at the deluxes.

On July 10, deluxe prices drop to 3% higher than the lowest of the year, and stay at this level the rest of the month. (Moderate and value prices are unchanged.)

JULY 2016 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.
