    Hi! I will be visiting the Walt Disney World parks for the first time towards the end of May (before memorial day though). How crowded are the parks on weekdays during then and what are the wait times usually like? Thanks!

    Hi Lori!
    First off, CONGRATULATIONS!! You are going to have an absolutely amazing time. First Disney trips are incredibly memorable!!
    Your timing is quite good actually. Crowd levels in May, particularly if you avoid Memorial Day Weekend, are very moderate since everyone is still in school (well, the kids are anyway), and the holiday crowds have not yet arrived. I think you will find the parks very navigable and the wait times pretty low for many attractions. It is hard to give you exact wait times, but it will not be nearly as bad as if you were going on Menorial Day weekend or other busier times of year.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical first trip!! :)
