Trying to decide between may and June!?

I was looking at our calendar just to see what days our DS has off from school and saw that he has off a couple of days in may so I was thinking maybe we could check in May 17- 27 .Our original plan was to go June 15-27 or 28. I thought maybe May might be a little less crowded any advice or should we just wait and go in June?

Mid-May will generally offer slightly cooler temperatures and slightly fewer guests in the parks than in Mid-June.

I would definitely choose the May dates, also for cooler weather and lower crowds. Good luck!

Early to mid May is nice. Once you hit memorial day, it gets busy and stays busy.

Check out the May http://www.easywdw.com/may2012u6.jpg and June http://www.easywdw.com/june2012-u5.jpg crowd calendars. Your May dates are mostly 6s, while your June dates are mostly 7s. If you are completely indifferent between the two months, then go for May with slightly better weather and crowds. If there's any other reason that you might prefer June over May, then the slight difference in crowds and weather might not be worth it.

I vote for May. Better weather usually lower crowds . May is our second favorite time to go . June July and August are our least favorite

I guess thats what I was trying to figure out I go to his site daily lol. June would just mean that DS 6 wouldn't miss any school its right around my birthday along with our DS 1st birthday which is on the 3rd of June.

Mid May is still going to be hot and humid. And if it's like this past May, Friday and the weekend will be crowded. But as others have said,June will be more crowded.

So I guess if there really is not a big difference I guess we will just wait until June and just deal with the crowds rather than taking him out of school that close to the end. We plan on going back the first week in Dec 2013 to see the xmas decorations. I just figured I would try for another low time!

Now I really cant decide....

with the offer coming out for feb, DS has off the 13-18 and we could take him out that Monday and Tuesday to go down. The crowds look to be a 5/7 most of our time until that weekend then they are a 9 for Presidents day. Our original plan was not go until June as a kinda kick off to summer ( DS is in K this year and DS will turn one in June) so he is just starting the real summer vacations! But I also know some people say its unbearable in the summer with crowds and heat especially for us since we have gone in September. Last year we did go in August and the crowds were awful. So I either go in Feb and maybe a later trip in nov or dec of next year! Or just go for 12 days in June!!! The decisions.....

Definitely may. The earlier the better. We went 3 years in a row for our disneymoon and anniversaries and it was just too hot and crowded. Even a few weeks earlier can make all the difference. We used to go June 5-12 ish.
