Disney World in May kicks off the start of summer. I would avoid the last week of this month as the crowds pour in for the holiday weekend and start of summer. It’s always a good idea when planning your trip that you put together your plan. I recommend using our FREE printable daily Disney World planner.
The Weather at Disney During May
The weather on average ranges from the overnight lows of around 65 to the daytime high of 88. It’s a good idea to pack as you would for summer during this month. The temperatures are warm and humid in May and it can get quite toasty. It’s a pretty good bet that you are going to be wearing a lot of shorts and tee shirts during this month and don’t forget to pack sunscreen, as there will be around 10 hours of sunshine per day. As always it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast before you leave.

Park Events at Disney World in May
Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival
The Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot is one of my favorite times of the year to visit. Though my allergies will disagree with that statement, it’s worth the sniffles to see the topiaries. The displays are just stunning and something you want to get a chance to experience at least once.
The 2019 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival starts March 6th and runs through June 3rd. Of course every year the festivals at Epcot seemingly get longer and longer!

I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old.

Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
