Here is the preliminary June 2013 Disney World Crowd Calendar. It should look similar to last year’s. Click to enlarge or click here for the handy PDF file.:
If you have no idea what any of the numbers and symbols mean, read the top of this post. A couple of notes – first, June is “Summer Season” at all Disney operated resorts. The difference is that at the Values and Moderates, pricing is actually close to Peak Season pricing. For example, at Pop Century during Summer Season, rooms are $143/weekday and $168/weekend. During Peak Season, it’s $145/weeknight and $175/weekend. Regular Season is $121/weekday and $143/weekend. At the Deluxes, Summer Pricing is slightly lower than Regular Season and much lower than Peak Season. That’s why you see the discrepancy in the $$$$ / $$ pricing ($$$$ for Values/Moderates and $$ for Deluxes), even though both are technically Summer Season. See MouseSavers for a complete pricing rundown.
June is a month that just gets hotter and more crowded as you get closer to July. More and more schools are out on summer break and more and more South American tour groups arrive as July approaches. The good news is that operating hours are long at all theme parks and nightly entertainment is abundant. Disney should add a second Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios and extend the close to 10pm on most/all nights when it updates the operating schedule in May 2013. At Magic Kingdom, expect 11pm closes and a second Electrical Parade at 11pm. With cooler temperatures in the morning and evening, the best plan of attack is almost always a 9am – 1pm and 5pm – close day, with a lengthy break back at your resort to cool off and rest up for dinner and the evening entertainment. You’ll also enjoy the lowest crowds possible no matter where you go and miss the busiest part of the day. June is doable, but you’ll need to keep heavy crowds and high temperatures in mind.
