The Walt Disney World Resort has released the Operating Park Hours for June 2012. These June 2012 hours include the four theme parks of Disney World (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom) as well as the two water parks (Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach).

Potential Disney guests planning a trip to Disney World during June will find these hours most helpful in planning that trip. This is especially true for guests thinking of reserving a time at one of the many on-site sit-down restaurants as these establishments start taking reservations at the 180-day mark.

Summer is a favorite time for many to visit the parks as many kids are out of school for the year and the weather lends itself to summertime activities. As one can expect, however, it can also be crowded during the season because of those factors so planning your days can be extremely helpful.
