Is June a Good Time To Visit Walt Disney World?
The answer to this question is both yes and no! If you can visit in the first 2 weeks on June then the crowd levels are likely to be fairly average and the lines reasonably short. This changes as soon as the school vacations start in the middle of June. But just because the crowd levels with be high does not mean that you should put off that visit to Disney World. With a little planning you will have a wonderful time whatever the time you visit. The parks stay open longer at this time and extra parades and shows are scheduled.
The average daily temperature in June is 81 degrees. The average rainfall is the highest of any month but usually in Orlando the showers are a quick down pour and then the skies clear.
Walt Disney World Rides Closed for Refurbishment in June
The good news is that there are very few closures at this time of year. Disney World tend to have less closures at busy times. The one major attraction which will remain closed until September is Epcot’s Test Track. This closure will mean that the lines for Soarin’ are longer than ever so it is important that you either get a Fast Pass for this very popular attraction or ride it early in the day. The Fast Passes are likely to run out quickly too so to get the best chance of getting one before they are all gone, head to the Fast Pass kiosk at Soarin’ before noon.
Walt Disney World Events Scheduled for June 2012
The Star Wars Weekends will continue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on June 1st to 3rd and June 8th to 10th 2012. These are very popular events which attraction Star Wars fans from all over the world. Special character appearances, events and merchandise are available. If you are not a Star Wars fan you would probably be best to avoid Hollywood Studios on these weekends if you can because it does attract larger crowds to the park.
Epcot’s Sounds Like Summer Concert Series is held in June and July. Concerts are held in The American Gardens Theatre in Epcot World Showcase. Details are not available at the moment but we will publish them as soon as we have them. The series runs from 10th June until 28th July 2012.
The good news about busier times is that more parades and fireworks are scheduled. The Main Street Electrical Parade is scheduled to run throughout June. Fantasmic! is also going to be shown every night in June except 6th June. As always with Fantasmic! make sure that you arrive early – the auditorium is huge but it does fill to capacity.
Have a wonderful time on your Walt Disney World Vacation in June 2012!
