    Love the panel!! But going crazy trying to figure out when to go to WDW! Visited once before in January and walked on to lots of rides! Crowds were not bad at all, but now considering first week of May for next trip - will we be disappointed?

    Hi Lisa,

    So glad that you enjoy the panel, we really love being here!  Deciding when to visit Walt Disney World is probably the toughest decision.  Having visited several times in both January and May, I can probably safely say that although the crowds may be slightly heavier in May the improved weather makes it a wash!

    The weather in May is by far the best of the year in my opinion, and the crowds are very manageable (with the exception of the Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekends).  You'll also find longer park hours (and more hours of daylight) at this time of year which is a bonus.

    So if it were up to me, I'd pick early may without reservation! 

    Good luck with your decision!
