Here is some helpful tips and information for vacationers that are looking into visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the month of June 2016!
The top three questions that everyone always asks is; how’s the weather, is it crowded and how much will it cost me? Well keep reading because I’m about to tell you!
During the month of June you can expect to experience heavy crowd levels and very hot temperatures! I would suggest staying at a resort with a nice pool to take advantage of during the middle of the day when it is the hottest!
Events Happening in June!
THE official start to Summer is in June. Kids are getting out of school and families are going on vacation! For the past couple of years Hollywood Studios (MGM) has hosted Frozen Summer Fun! It usually begins in mid-June and lasts through until Labor Day. The official announcement for Frozen Summer Fun has not yet been released, but when more information becomes available you can find it here! EPCOT also gets in on the Summer festivities. They host the Sounds of Summer concert series which takes place on the weekends during the Summer season.
How’s the Weather?
The weather for all of June will be, yup you guessed it, HOT! According to the National Weather Channel, the average low for Central Florida is 72 and the high is 91. But I would expect it to get into the high 90’s at some points. Also, be aware that during this time of year afternoon showers and thunderstorms are more than likely to make an appearance anytime from 2:00 pm until the evening hours. So bring your rain gear! Pack the sunscreen as well!
Ride & Attraction Refurbishments and Closings
The only ride that looks to be closed during June will be Soarin’. But, all of the Disney sources say that it will be opened back up by Summer 2016! So who knows you could be part of a soft opening or grand re-opening for Soarin’! Also, the Frozen Ever After ride is rumored to be opening in the Summer of 2016. When more information on these rides becomes available you can find it here!
Dining and FastPass+ Reservations
If you are planing on getting advanced dining reservations you will need to book your reservations by December, which will be your 180 day mark. Also, if you are staying on property you can reserve your FastPass+ 60 days before your arrival date. Your 60-Days out date will be in April.
