Visiting Disney in July

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.

Welcome to our series on what to expect during each month at Walt Disney World. We break down the essentials month by month so you know how to best prepare for your trip or to help you chose which month you want to take a trip to Disney World.

July is a the heart of the summer here in central Florida. As such it is the hottest, priciest, and busiest month to come visit Disney World. We recommend if you have the flexibility to look at an alternate time to visit. For a lot of people, however, this is the only option for making a trip out to see Mickey.

Do you have a trip in July already planned? Fear not, all hope is not lost I promise! My top trip recommendation is that you plan out your days your spending at Disney.

The Weather in Disney During July

Hot! With a side of afternoon showers. July is the hottest month of the year with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees every day. Do not forget to pack the ponchos! During July you can expect showers just about every single evening here in Orlando. And keep in mind evening is local speak for any time after noon. There is no avoiding the rain in this month, come prepared.

Our best tip, outside of packing shoes that hold up in the rain and ponchos is to take a scheduled afternoon break. The heat is at it’s worst during the afternoon. After you have lunch plan to go back to your room. At your hotel, you can enjoy a nap, AC, the pool, a movie, or anything else that will give you a break from the suppressive Florida heat.
