mayheader 600x400 - Disney World at May

May at Disney World is when it starts to really warm up in terms of temperatures and summer crowds start to appear at the end of the month.

I think the beginning of May is 1 of the best times of the year to visit Disney World. Ride closures are uncommon, it's warm enough to swim at your resort and/or visit the water parks, but crowds are lower than during the peak summer months.

Some tips for traveling in May:

  • Traveling to Disney World during a busier time (like the last part of May) means you have to be extra diligent about having a good touring plan. As long as you're zigging while other people zag, you'll do fine.
  • Weather in May is usually pretty warm. Summer attire is appropriate.
