Tell Me about June please...

I am going with majority rules on our next trip and majority says June.

It is not my preferred time for both crowds and heat, but I intend to make the best of it. We are rope drop tourists and plan to rest midday and head back for evenings. Our week begins on Fatherís Day.

What do I need to know and prepare for?

Our most recent trip was over Father's Day . . . the trip before that was in August. Both were hot and humid. The biggest difference for me is that my body was more acclimated to that type of weather in August.

We did the same, went to the parks in the morning - midday break - and back in the evening. It worked well for us. Just make sure to stay hydrated. Have a great time!

We've been at Disney that exact week 7 times in the last 17 years. We usually do exactly what you plan to do -- rope drop, stay in the park until about 1-2:00, then back to the room to hang out in the a/c or swim, then back to the parks around 6:00. We also do one or two "sleep in" days where we don't get to the parks until mid afternoon and then stay through park close. We find that to be tolerable as well.

It can definitely be very hot and humid (real feel can be in the low 100's) but we've also had weeks with 4-5 days that are in the upper 80's (as opposed to upper 90's) and tolerable humidity. We've never had a ton of rain during that week in June. I think that at least 2 of those weeks we never saw any rain (it either didn't rain at the park we were in or it rained during the night while we were sleeping) and we've never had anything more than a few hours of rain most of the other trips.

While I would love to go a different/cooler time of year (we did go in May one year -- had 14" of rain over the 7 days we were there. Temps were good and crowds were low, though!), until our kids all graduate from high school (5 more years!), we're pretty much stuck with going in June due to school and sports schedules. It might not be the ideal time to go, but I'd rather go in June than not at all.

We’ve been at that time, too. Your midday break will be welcome, and since that’s what you’re used to doing, you won’t need to change your pattern.

We have found that really anytime after mid-May, the weather will be hot, humid, and quite rainy at that time of the year. We just poncho up and trek on. The rain tends to come more in the afternoons and evenings, and the thunderstorms can be intense, but we just carry on as best we can.

You’re right, Katie. Just make the best of it. After all, you’re still at Disney!

We used to routinely go the second two weeks of June. The first week seemed slightly better weather-wise and crowd-wise. The temperatures and crowds went up as we moved through the trip. We also experienced almost daily rain in the late afternoon. Eventually, I planned our evening meals around 5:00 PM so we'd already be inside. These rains were usually brief.

As others have said, it will be hot but with midday breaks you'll be fine. Be prepared for the daily afternoon showers.

Get cooling towels with a carrying case. I have one from Disney. I put ice in the case in the morning and I have a cold towel for a while and I can always get more ice at the parks. I always carry it in the summer.

Be prepared to leave AK early, around noon. My friend and I were there over the summer and we ended up in the Tiffins bar for 3+ hours as it was just too hot to be out.
