    Great panel! My dh,me,2 dd's 17,12 will arrive mco at 6 am by the time we reach our hotel what is there to do before the parks open. We haven't decided on ak or epcot our 1st day of 10. This is our 1st time to wdw. whats the weather like may 8-17.

    Anna Lisa,   Glad to hear you are making your first trip to Walt Disney World!  Make sure to stop by guest services to pick-up your "First Visit" buttons!

    You said your plane will land at 6:00 a.m.  By the time you get to your hotel, check-in, and grab some breakfast at your resort, the parks will be waiting for you!  Check the calendars for the park hours on the days you will be there, but with early morning extra magic hours, some parks might be open as early as 7:00 a.m.  Click HERE to check for park hour updates.

    Both Epcot and Animal Kingdom require a lot of walking, so since you have a 10 day vacation planned, pace yourself and don't get too tired on your first day.  Maybe take a mid-day break back at your resort for a quick nap or dip in the pool!

    Temperatures in May range from 66 degrees to 88 degrees with an average daily temperature of 77 degrees.  There is always a good chance of afternoon rain, so bring a rain poncho or umbrella.

    Enjoy all the magic of Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
