    May question

    Hey all! I am going to WDW for the 5th time the third week in May. Does anybody know how crowded it will be? I am not sure when the kids get out of school down there.

    I'll be there the same time as you. I'll be staying at the Wilderness Lodge. It seems that this week is the best time to go because everyone's spring break is in either March or April. So we are safe. 2 weeks after spring break is over and one week before the Memorial Day holiday. I found the answer to this question on two other boards. This will be my fifth time there, too!

    I've been down there that weekend the last 2 years, and both times the weather was beautiful and the crowds were fairly light. The Flower and Garden Festival is in full swing at Epcot, and it is the first weekend of Star Wars Weekends in MGM Studios (May 19th this year). Those events bring a few more people into those parks, but they are a lot of fun.

    Have a great trip!

    Yeah usually may is good. End of may might get a little buisier because some schools get out early.

    The 3rd week is a great time to be there, the schools in that area don't get out until early to mid June and the crowds are light and the weather is great. Don't plan on going right after Memorial Day because a large crowd develops for Orlando's(NOT Disney's)Gay Days

    I went during that time last year, and it wasnt crowded at all. I think the longest we waited in any line was 10-15 minutes. We had really nice weather too, not very hot.

    That really is one of my favorite times to go. It's not as nice as the holidays with all the decorations, but it is so relaxing and you can really enjoy the rides and attractions without a long wait in line

    I'll be there the week before you, but hopefully the weather and the crowds will be jsut like you've said, even though I miss the Star Tour weekends...

    I have been in January and all parks were relatively empty. The weather can be chilly but that is better than the horrendous heat you feel in the summer months...
