    Hi! My husband and I will be going to Walt Disney World May 6-11th. I have never been in May. We always go in December and January. How are the crowds and the weather?

    Hi Nicholette,

    I think you will like touring the Walt Disney World Resorts in May. The weather is warm but not hot and humid as it will be in a few short weeks after your vacation. I always check an online weather service prior to heading to Orlando so I know what to wear.

    As for the crowds, many states have not started summer vacation yet so you should so lighter crowds then in the summer. If you are used to touring at the non-holiday times of December and January, you will see similar crowds.

    I would still recommend making Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) for any table service meals as the popularity of the Disney Dining Plan makes it a little tougher to have a walk up table available.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
