A Complete Guide to Walt Disney World in June

I’m going to be honest: June is not my favorite time to visit due to super hot weather, lots of rain, and summertime crowds.

But, I know for many of you, it might be the only time of the year you can visit, so let’s make the most of it!

In this post, I’m sharing tips for visiting Walt Disney World in June, including what to pack, what the crowds are like, special events, what’s new, what’s closed, and general weather info.

All dates and information subject to change throughout the year. This post will be updated frequently, but for the most up to date information on what’s closed and what’s reopened, check out my post about Disney World closures and what’s new.

The average temperatures in June are hot and humid, with an average high of 91° F and an average low of 73°. 

Unfortunately, June is also typically the rainiest month, with an average precipitation rate of 8.74 inches of rain.

And at Disney World, when it rains, it RAINS. A lot of the time, it’ll be quick 20-30 minute downpours in the afternoon.

As June is considered part of hurricane season, you’ll occasionally get a day here or there where it rains all day.

But as Disney World says, it’s the most magical place on Earth, so you bet there’s still lots of fun things to do at Disney World in the rain!

In other words, don’t let this poor weather data sway you from booking a Walt Disney World vacation during this month.

What to wear to Disney World in June

Don’t mess around with the heat and humidity. Cool, breezy layers will be your best bet on what to wear to Disney World in June. 

Avoid tight layers and dark colors, both of which can contribute to discomfort and overheating.

Tight layers, especially skinny jeans and leggings, can contribute to developing the dreaded Disney rash (aka Golfer’s rash).

Throw in a swimsuit or 2 so you can cool off after a day at the parks in the resort pool or hit up one of the water parks.

While it is unlikely that you’ll need a jacket or sweatshirt, keep an eye on the weather. You might still want a pair of pants for at night or a rain jacket if there is lots of rain forecasted.

Per usual, pack the shoes that work best for you, whether that be sandals or sneakers.

Be sure to pack more than 1 pair, maybe even more than 2, due to the high chance of precipitation. You’ll want to rotate your shoes to ensure they have enough time to dry out if you hit rainy weather.

Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses, and a compact rain poncho or umbrella in your park bag at all times.

Even if the weather doesn’t call for rain, Florida is known for its quick approaching, short afternoon storms.

Disney World in June is full of surprises and known for erratic changes from clear and sunny time and rain storms. Prepare accordingly!

While you’re at it, download a good weather app to get alerts of incoming inclement weather, too!

Special events & holidays

Originally it was expected for the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival to stretch through June as it has in previous years.

However, Disney released the end date for the festival in January and surprisingly it will be ending on May 27!

Just a heads up in case you were expecting to be able to attend in June. Moving on…

On June 14, 2024, the latest Disney & Pixar animated film, Inside Out 2 is currently scheduled to be released.

Often times Disney will have extra stuff going on at Disney Springs or even in the parks for new movies.

For example, extended promo clips or photo ops. Given the popularity of Inside Out, it’s likely there will the something!

However, I anticipate a lot of current movie release dates to slip due to the ongoing strikes, so it’s possible this date will change.

Other than that, lots of families will be visiting with schools out for Summer vacation.

Early June has moderate crowds, with most schools still in session. But as you get later into the month, the crowds will start to pick up.

Overall, June, July, and the first half of August are some of the most crowded times at the parks!
