Find out everything you need to know if you plan to go to Walt Disney World in June! From weather and crowd sizes to what to pack!
I love to visit Disney World any time of the year, and June is no exception. June is the month that my husband and I were married and we have spent many anniversaries at Disney.
Because it is the beginning of the summer season, the temperatures are a little more manageable than they are in July and August which makes it a great month to go!

Tips for Disney World in June
Below, you will find important things you’ll want to think about when planning your Disney World vacation in June. For more ideas, check out more of my Disney World Planning Tips!
Disney World Crowds in June
Crowds are expected to be a larger this summer, but with a little planning, you’ll be able to have a great time.
Currently, Disney World park capacity is at 35% which doesn’t seem like a lot of people, but with some attractions, restaurants, and shows not operating, things that are open can feel extremely busy.
There is also no Fastpass+ service at this time, which can make advanced planning a little more difficult. So what can you do to manage the crowds? Have a plan, but be flexible.
Disney World Park Reservations
Before booking your vacation, you need to check availability at each Disney World park. Park capacity is capped at 35% right now, so planning ahead is crucial.
As you can see from the calendar below, some of the parks are already at capacity on some days. Head here to check current park availability.
Before making reservations, you will need to purchase your tickets. You can do this separately or as part of a vacation package.
Ride Wait Times at Disney World in June
Even with the absence of Fastpass+ service, wait times have not been too bad. In fact, most of the time they are much shorter than what is posted in the My Disney Experience app.
This has been my experience when I have visited all four Disney World parks. You can read all about current wait times here.
Weather at Walt Disney World in June
I’m not going to beat around the bush, Disney World in HOT in June! The weather forecast in June shows mostly sunny days with a some scattered clouds and a few days with afternoon thunderstorms.
The nice thing about the afternoon thunderstorms is that they seem to dissipate quickly. Keep reading to find out what rain gear I recommend for Disney World.
The high temperatures are in high 80s and low 90s. The average lows are in the low 70s.
As everyone knows, the weather can be unpredictable. For up to date weather information, click here.
Safety Precautions at Disney World in June
Disney has been doing a great job with trying to keep their cast members and guests safe during the current world conditions.
Hopefully, things will begin to relax as conditions improve. In fact, temperature screenings will no longer be required in June! Here are a few things you can still expect on your visit.
Face Mask Requirements
Disney requires all guests and cast members to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times, except when you are stationary and are eating or drinking.
The mask policy has been amended recently to allow guests to remove masks to take pictures as long as you are socially distanced.
Social distancing markers are placed all over the parks in queues and restaurants to keep guests safe. Currently these markers are set at 6 feet apart, but may change in the future.
What to Pack for Walt Disney World in June
Knowing what to pack for a trip to Walt Disney World in June is important. You don’t want to be unprepared and end up having to use your vacation budget on things that could easily have been brought from home with a little planning.
Here are a few things you might want to consider packing if you’ll be traveling to Walt Disney World in June.
Pack an Umbrella, Poncho and Stroller Protection
A poncho is not only useful during a thunderstorm, it can also come in handy to wear on rides like Splash Mountain or Kali River Rapids to keep your clothes dry!
If you are taking a stroller with you to Disney World, you can find universal stroller covers on Amazon that will protect them from the rain.
Another trick is to bring a plastic shower curtain liner from the dollar store to cover your stroller while on rides and clothes pins to secure it. I have done this a few times and it was a life saver!
Pack Sun Protection
The Florida sun is brutal, especially when temperatures climb in June. You should always be ready for UV rays by packing some sunblock, a hat, and a pair of sunglasses.
Also make sure your kids are protected too. Nothing ruins a magical vacation like a sunburn!
What to Wear at Disney World in June
Even in June, it can get really cool on rainy days. I found this out the hard way at Epcot when I was freezing and had to spend more than I wanted on a new sweatshirt.
As far as normal June days go at Disney World, although I would love to dress to the nines and look totally adorable, but I generally go for comfort over style at Disney.
Where to Find Cute Disney Shirts
I have a problem. I am addicted to buying Disney t-shirts! That problem can get pretty expensive, unless you know where to look.
I have had good luck finding Disney apparel for my entire family at Target and Walmart. You can also find TONS of matching shirts and family shirts on Etsy!
One of my favorite places to buy cute Disney shirts is Amazon, and if you are a Prime Member, you can get them shipped in about 2 days!
I have purchased this cute Cinderella themed shirt to wear to Magic Kingdom, this Lion King shirt for my 6-year-old to wear to Animal Kingdom, and this Mickey Mouse shirt for my husband and two older boys.
Before any Disney vacation, I like to check out Jane.com for adorable and affordable Disney vacation t-shirts! I have found so many cute shirts for only $13.99!
Just type “vacation” or “character” in the search bar to find all of the cute things! Be aware that their deals change daily, so make sure to check back often or follow me on Instagram to keep up on all of the amazing Disney-themed merchandise!
I have an article that goes in depth and shows you how to get the best Disney shirt deals on Jane.com here.
I’ve also had really good luck taking advantage of sales from The Disney Store! If you can catch a sale, you can save so much money over what you would pay for the same items at the Parks.
