May Disney World crowds
Hey, Dad? What are the May Disney World crowds like? There are no crowds at Disney World in May, at least until Memorial Day Weekend. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
May is a wonderful, quiet (for the most part) and interesting time to go to Disney. Crowds are small and the entertainment is great.

Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival wraps up and Mother's Day activities draw a few folks, but it's a pretty good month to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and small May Disney World crowds.
May is also the beginning of Star Wars Weekends at Disney Hollywood Studios Wookies, Storm Troopers, Darth Vader... and much, much more invade the Studios during Star Wars Weekends. Throw on your best Princess Leia costume and join in.
NOTE: Crowds at the other parks will be small on these weekends but at Disney Hollywood Studios it will be packed.
Spring break is over. School is still winding up. Not a whole lot of families go on Disney World vacations in May, at least not until the Memorial Day weekend.
Calling All Dads

You won't have much competition from the crowds. The kids will love you for it. Your wife will love your for it. Trust me...

The Complete Crowd Picture
For a more in depth picture of the May Disney World Crowds, check out Touringplans.com where they literally wrote the book on Disney World crowds (The Unofficial Guide Walt Disney World). At Touringplans.com you can see what the crowds have been like at Disney World over the last 5+ years. You can see projected crowds at each park (even more in depth than Dad's projections). You'll see recommendations for which park to visit and which park to avoid.
The "Lines" app is a thing of beauty and it comes with every subscription. Lines shows you how long the line is at every ride in every park in real time. (It even works in the park. Disney hasn't found a way to block it yet.)
Go over and grab a subscription to the site today. You won't be sorry. Trust me.
If you have any questions about May at Disney World, if it's about crowds or events or parks ... Dad knows. Feel free to ask him any questions about anything.
Dad's Bottom Line
May is a beautiful time to visit Walt Disney World. The weather is beautiful and crowds are mostiy light. Take mom and have a ball.
