WHAT IS JUNE LIKE AT DISNEY WORLD?
If you must go to Disney World in the summer, the very beginning of June is your best choice for a first visit.
Crowds, while not good, are lower than than much of the rest of the summer, hotel prices are OK, except at the value resorts, ticket prices are average earlier in the month but higher later, and the full weight of summer weather is not yet in place.
(The end of August is the next best summer choice. Prices and crowds are much better, but you are not only in peak summer heat then, but also the peak of the hurricane season.)
JUNE 2020 CROWDS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
June crowds begin OK, but quickly hit high levels as more and more kids get out of school.
On a crowd scale of 1-11, the first week of the month -beginning 5/30/2020–has a crowd ranking of 7/moderate minus. I mark the rest of the month as 8/high-minus.
Summer crowds have been down the past few years. I expect them to be higher in 2020, with three new rides at Hollywood Studios and perhaps the first new ride opening as part of Epcot’s re-imagining all open by or during the summer.
JUNE 2020 RESORT HOTEL PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
Disney World hotel prices begin June at a mix of levels, and stay there through the month
- At the value resorts, prices all month long are 30-45% higher than the lowest of the year
- At the moderate resorts, prices all month long are 15-20% higher than the lowest of the year
- At the deluxe resorts, prices all month long are 10-15% higher than the lowest of the year
JUNE 2020 TICKET PRICES AT WALT DISNEY WORLD
June 2020 Disney World ticket prices begin the month at average levels, with some low prices at short to medium ticket lengths, but hit high levels by June 21 for most ticket lengths. Shorter tickets whose eligible use days include the Fourth of July are even higher.
See the image–where green is good, and lots of green particularly good, and red is bad, and lots of red is particularly bad.

JUNE 2020 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 about six months in advance. Major hours updates–often with later closes–can happen a month before.
