How busy is Orlando in May?

Most US schools spend the first part of summer during May. Therefore, you must be ready for an increase in the park visitors on certain days, but you don’t have to queue hours, long lines for each trip or attraction. Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks open regularly in May, but crowds generally remain low until after Memorial Day, which many consider the beginning of the bathing season. This is the right time to spend a warm day and enjoy the water walks without having to wait long. The number of spring vacations will continue to grow, so you won’t have to wait so long to enjoy your favorite attractions at the amusement park. Use FastPass + and a single pilot lane for attractions as test tracks to further reduce waiting times. Prepare for an intense weekend at Epcot because the park is home to one of the most popular events of this month.
