    Planning trip for May or June for 4. 2 boys 3 & 7 & 2 adults. When is the hotels cheaper and the parks less busy. Dates 3rd week of May or 2nd week of June. Any ideas for special ideas for boys as well! Thanks in advance!

    Hi Joshua!

    If this year is like recent past years, the weekdays will be about the same for the 3rd week of May and the 2nd week of June with regards to the crowds.  However, the weekends will be more crowded in May, especially Disney's Hollywood Studios.  That is because Disney's Hollywood Studios will be hosting Star Wars Weekends.  It's a must do if you have any Star Wars fans in your party!  It is an incredible event for Star Wars fans of all ages.

    Special ideas for boys include:
    • Participating in the Jedi Training Academy
    • Breakfast at Chef Mickey's, Cape May Cafe, or at 'Ohana
    • The Pirates League in the Magic Kingdom
    • A visit to Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach

    I have two boys, now ages 12 and 7.  When they were that young, one of their favorite activities was spending the afternoon in the resort pool.  Keep that in mind.  It will definitely be hot enough to swim in the pools and in the water parks!

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
