    i would like to avoid crowds is the first week of may a good time to go???? i'm not interested in rates, just crowds!!!!

    Hello Lorena! 

    A girl after my own heart - I'm a lover of low crowds, too. I have visited the Walt Disney World Resort the first week of May before, and I would say it is a moderate crowd level. The weather is nice, a lot of crowds will have just come for Easter and Spring Break, so it won't be terribly busy. You also get the bonus of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

    September and January are typically the lowest crowd months. With a good touring plan, you should be able to experience all you want to! Don't forget to make FastPass+ selections and arriving before the theme parks open is always my number one tip. You will accomplish so much in the first few hours and can save your FastPass+ selections for later in the day when the crowds pick up.

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Have a magical vacation!
