June 2017 at Walt Disney World
By Dave Shute
OVERVIEW: JUNE 2017 AT DISNEY WORLD
If you must go to Disney World in the summer, the beginning of June is your best choice for a first visit.
Crowds, while not good, are lower then than most of the rest of the summer, prices are OK–except at the value resorts–and the full weight of summer weather is not yet in place.
(The end of August is the next best choice. Prices and crowds are much better, but you are not only in peak summer then, but also the peak of the hurricane season.)
JUNE 2017 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
More and more schools let out over June, so crowds are OK after Memorial Day week but build to its end.
On a crowd scale of 1-11, I rank the week beginning June 3 as 7/ moderate-plus crowds, the weeks beginning June 10 and June 17 as 8/high-minus crowds, and the week beginning June 25 as 9/ high crowds.
JUNE 2017 PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
Prices all month are Summer season–30-45% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 15-20% higher at the moderates, and about 10% higher at the deluxes.

JUNE 2017 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. Look for a major update to hours a couple of weeks before the month starts.
