    Hello, I am planning a trip to Disney World in 2013 for myself and my three year old - He will be almost four at the time. I was just wondering if the beginning of May or June would be less busy? It will be a first for us both so are there any must sees?

    Hi Arian!

    Traditionally, both times have moderate crowds.  The crowd levels are actually usually a little higher in early May than early June, for some reason.  You can bet on all holidays to have higher crowd levels, and since Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) is a holiday, expect high crowd levels on that day. 

    My 4 yr old especially likes:

    Magic Kingdom:  Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Tomorrowland Speedway, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan's Flight, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad,  the Walt Disney World Railroad, Pirates of t'he Caribbean, & the Magic Carpets of Aladdin.  Also, new to the Magic Kingdom:  The Barnstormer & Casey Jr Splash 'N' Soak Station.  We've not tried these two yet, but can't wait to do so!

    EPCOT:  The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Turtle Talk with Crush, Journey Into the Imagination, Living with the Land, Spaceship Earth, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring Three Caballeros, Innoventions, and various Character Greetings throughout the Park.

    Hollywood Studios:  Toy Story Mania!, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Disney Junior Live on Stage, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Muppet Vision 3-D, "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" Movie Set Adventure (playground).

    Animal Kingdom:  Kilimanjaro Safaris Expedition, Festival of the Lion King, Finding Nemo-the Musical, Kali River Rapids, It's Tough to be a Bug, Tricera Top Spin, Wildlife Express Train, and visiting all of the animals.

    At each Park, there are special parades, Character Greetings, shows, and fireworks (no fireworks at Animal Kingdom), that are not to be missed.  Check the daily Times Guides available daily at each Park's entrance.

    Have a wonderful time!
