Why May is the BEST month to go (really!!)

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-05-19 13:43
Okay, we've decided that for practical reasons the only month we can go is May (daughter on college break etc). After reading the answers to my last post I'm really quite discouraged -and some touring plan site listed "weekends" in May among the absolute WORST times to go. So I need a pep squad! Tell me all the reasons that May IS good, and barring that, give me your best May-time advice on how to handle the stuff that is not-so-good. At least half our trip is at Universal where we will have unlimited express passes, so that will help there. (and they didn't say - but why are May weekends so bad? Is that really a super crowded time?) :mickey: Edited to add - we COULD do the last week of March, but I'm assuming Spring Break crowds are even worse than May?

Crowds

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-05-19 13:28
I know summer hasn't started but if you've been lately, how you think the crowd levels have been. Wondering if attendance is still down from prior years. We may have to go in July this year which isn't making me happy!!!!

Month to Go

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-05-18 16:21
I'm a teacher, so that narrows it down a little , although I HAVE been banking personal days. We've been a few times in December which I absolutely LOVED for the decoratrions, that atmosphere and "magicalness"! But we ran into so not so great weather, and couldn't swim much (not to mention to debacles with flights home not working out because of blizzard conditions on our end). The first couple of times crowds were pretty low, but the third time they were already getting kinda crazy by about the 15th or so. We went in September and LOVED the weather, and found the crowds very reasonable, not long lines for anything, really. But September is REALLY hard for a teacher, and June is out of the question for that reason also. I think for me, July and August would be utterly insane (we tried Disneyland in July once, and after 9 or 10 in the morning just gave up on ever getting on a ride). I'm thinking January and February are great crowds, but too cold, and lots of closures for refurb. We are tentatively planning for MAY - what are your thoughts? What's great about it? What's bad about it? Would you pick a different month? Am I wrong about some of my thoughts above? And...can I live with myself if I don't go back at Christmas? lol
