June Disney World crowds
June Disney World crowds are hard to predict. June is the most diverse month of the year. The month start out with beautiful, calm quiet days. And then... (Here the ominous music playing in the background)
It's coming... It's dark... It's, it's, it's
June is an divirse month to visit Walt Disney World. The first weekend has Gay Days. Star Wars Weekends happen for the first couple of weeks and summer crowds pick up as the month progresses.

STAR WARS Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Wookies, Storm Troopers, Darth Vader... and much, much more invade the Studios during Star Wars Weekends. Throw on your best Princess Leia costume and join in.
Disney's Sounds Like Summer continues in June with several tribute bands. Music fills the American Gardens Theater in Epcot for 3 shows every day.
Gay Days at Disney World
In 2012 Gay Days will start on May 30 and run through June 3.
Warning: Gay Days celebrants have become more radical over the last few years. Activities may not be suitable for families with young children.
June Disney World Crowds
Here's how the crowds work in June. Gay Days bump the crowds up the first weekend of the month. The selected park will be very crowded and the other parks will have large crowds. Then everything calms down for a while.
Starting the second week in June, crowds will be light and build for the rest of the month until by the end of the month crowds are heavy to overwhelming. Weekdays will be lighter than weekends.
By the last week of the month summer is in full swing and the parks will be busy, busy, busy.

The Complete Crowd Picture
For a more in depth picture of the May Disney World Crowds, check out Touringplans.com where they literally wrote the book on Disney World crowds (The Unofficial Guide Walt Disney World). At Touringplans.com you can see what the crowds have been like at Disney World over the last 5+ years. You can see projected crowds at each park (even more in depth than Dad's projections). You'll see recommendations for which park to visit and which park to avoid.
The "Lines" app is a thing of beauty and it comes with every subscription. Lines shows you how long the line is at every ride in every park in real time. (It even works in the park. Disney hasn't found a way to block it yet.)
Go over and grab a subscription to the site today. You won't be sorry. Trust me.
Dad is always around to ask any question you might have about crowds, or rides or hotels. That's because good Dads are helpful and kind and loving and ... PERFECT!
Dad's Bottom Line
Early June is a great time to be at Disney World weather wise and crowd wise (except for Gay Days weekend). Summer crowds start to arrive as the month progresses.
