It's officially official! :)

Our dates have stayed the same, but we are now officially booked, and made our ADR's on Thursday! Here is what our itinerary looks like, we have a park each day, but it will not always be a full park day - we are not crazy, just like to be in a park for at least some of each day!

May 28th, plane lands at 11:30, this is a change from when we first booked flights - it was 1:30 before - woo hoo! I know it can, and probably will, change again, but excited for now to arrive earlier! We are going to settle in and head to Epcot - 6:30 Biergarten and stay until we are tired - which I am guessing will be rather early

May 29th, If we get to bed early the night before, we plan to do RD at MK, and have a 4:30 dinner ressie at BOG for our 10 year anniversary.

May 30th, RD HS, 12:05 Mama Melrose/Fantasmic dining package, mid-day break at resort til 4, back to HS for dinner a couple rides, and F!

May 31st, sleep in after late night, then AK. no ressies today, as we are going to do HDDR later in the trip. We will probably head to DTD this night.

June 1st, RD EP. We will focus on Future World today. 12:10 Akershus to celebrate DD5's 6th bday

June 2nd, RD HS for SWW!!!! no ressie again today, we don't want to be tied down to a reservation and miss out on any SWW stuff!

June 3rd, sleep in, then head to EP. We will focus on World Showcase today. 7:50 R&C to watch Illuminations.

June 4th, not sure what we will do this day, maybe another MK day, maybe Epcot, we will decide once we get there! We do have a 6:00 ressie at 1900 Park Faire for DD8's 9th bday.

June 5th, RD AK, 10:10 Tusker House, 6:15 HDDR

June 6th, 10:00 1900 Park Faire, then MK, 5:30 LTT, watch parade and Wishes for our last night

June 7th, flight leaves at 3:30, we will probably sleep in, have breakfast at the POR food court, maybe go to FQ for beignets, check out, and head to MCO!

Whew! Getting so excited, I guess the only other thing I need to do is start our touring plans!

Is anyone interested in making a facebook group for May 2013 Disers? I'm not sure if some people are on there more than here or not. I just found and April 2013 group, and I thought it was a good idea.

I would be interested! I often post questions here on the Dis and get no response so this might make conversation more possible.

If I recall correctly when I was there last year in May MK was only open until 1am when they had an extra magic evening. I think they are cutting evening magic hours down to 2 from 3; so will likely only be opening until midnight? But that's a guess.

I think the slower crowds in May mean they don't need to stay open that late.

Does anyone have any experience of the weather at wdw in early May? We usually vacation in October so not sure what to pack! The climate averages online are never a match for actual experience! Tia

Last time we went it was early May. It was high 80s low 90s the whole time. We usually went back to the resort to swim mid day and then returned to the park in the evening, except for a few days where we stayed all day long. I think I might have put on a jacket one morning, but that was after we had been there for over a week and I think my body just adjusted to the warmth so the 65* weather that morning was just too cold. My family however made fun of me that morning, because they were all in tank tops and shorts. But they did regret it when we had to wait in the shade to get into the park for our dining reservations. Then the younger girls were cold.

Each night was warm enough for the kids to swim though, so it didn't really get to cold at night. On our last day it got so hot though I think it was 97*, we really went through the water that day. It may have felt hotter than it was because we were in Epcot WS that day, and it always seems hot then.

Last April over Easter break we went to visit my mom and went to Sea world and Aquatica for a few days and it was really warm then too. But it wasn't so hot you didn't want to be in a park.

It doesn't look like it this year. The latest that the calendar shows is midnight (up until May 7th that is... I didn't check after that date). You can check out www.easywdw.com for the crowd calendars and such. He has a list of the hours already, and I don't think they will change much before May. Although we can hope!!

Thanks that is a great help! I was wondering if it was warm enough to do the water parks looks like we might be in luck! I love that when you go back in the afternoon to the pool. We miss that when the weather is cooler.

We actually added on the WP&M option instead of the Park Hopper because we knew that it was going to be warm enough to swim. Now the problem is going to come in where I think that the kids are only going to want to go to the water park and Disney Quest....

Only Typhoon Lagoon is open while we will be there, unless it opens before May 7th when we leave we will miss Blizzard Beach this time.

Great re adding on WP&M option! We bought a premium annual pass as DVC were doing a deal so I think we get the water parks with that. We are excited to go to TL as its always closed for maintenance when we come later in the year! disneyquest sounds fun!
