    Hello! I'm going in May!

    Hello! I'm From Albuquerque, NM and I'm so excited that I will be going to DisneyWorld in May! I haven't been there since '84 and I know many things have changed! We weren't even thinking of going, but my step-daughter's son is being sent with the Make A Wish Foundation and I figured this would be the chance of a lifetime! My stepdaughter's family's trip is all paid for, and my husband and I found some great flight deals. We figured this was an opportunity we couldn't pass up. On this short notice, money will be tight, but we looked at our finances and figured we could do it. Plus, we really wanted to be their for our grandson. Can't wait for it!

    Welcome to DWT MonJul!

    May is wonderful time to go for both crowds and weather. I have been a few times myself during that time. My favorite thing that time of year is Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival. Enjoy your trip! And since it has been such a long time since your last visit, you may want to visit this site if you haven't already: Deb's Unofficial Walt Disney World Vacation Information Guide - WDW Planning Guide - Walt Disney World

    As far as Make A Wish Foundation goes, it's always nice to hear families are going to WDW through them. Here on DWT, we actually raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation through our Dream Team. http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com/Dre...m-Project.html

    Welcome to DWT!!!
    May is one of my favourite times to go to Disney World. The weather is absolutely gorgeous; not too hot, but lots of sunshine. You can find lots of great tips on money saving here on the forums and at allearsnet.com.
    Have a great time, and take lots of pictures!!
