July 2019 at Walt Disney World

WHAT IS JULY LIKE AT DISNEY WORLD?

Because pretty much every US schoolkid is on break in July, while shorter periods the rest of the year are more crowded, July overall has traditionally been the most crowded month at Disney World.

Note however, that the last three summers have been unusually good at Disney World in terms of crowds. If this trend continues, then July will be better than I’ve noted.

JULY 2019 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

On a crowd scale of 1-11, the week beginning 6/29 has a crowd ranking of 9/high, and the rest of the month a ranking of 8/high-minus. Crowds will be worst the Fourth of July.

JULY 2019 TICKET PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

July Disney World ticket prices generally begin the month high or average, and then vary quite a bit depending on length–typically worse mid-month, and better later in the month.

See the image–where green is good, and lots of green particularly good, and red is bad, and lots of red is particularly bad. For more, see my Disney World 2019 ticket price calendar.

JULY 2019 RESORT HOTEL PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

July resort hotel prices begin the month 30-40% higher than the lowest of the year at the values, 14-17% higher at the moderates, and 10-17% higher at the deluxes.

At the values and the moderates, they stay at this level all month long. At the deluxes, on July 7 they drop to 5-10% higher than the lowest of the year, and stay at that level the rest of the month.

JULY 2019 OPERATING HOURS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Park operating hours can 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 about six months in advance. Major hours updates–often with later closes–can happen a month before.

These calendars can be found by clicking the following links:
