    You'll want to be really careful about May and June. Early (very early) May is ok. But the rain usually starts mid-May and will definitely carry on through June. I remember one June where it rained non-stop for about three weeks. It was terrible. Flooding, mosquitos. Ugh. June is not a nice month as far as I'm concerned. It's like the summer sets in with a vengeance. It's hot and muggy and rainy in July, August and September too, but there's something about June...

    So all that to say, early May should be ok.

    Yes, it is. Either way. It can be good, or horrible. Same as December. It can be glorious, or awful. It really is all up to Mother Nature. :D

    We've been in June with three different sets of grand kids and never had a problem. Guess maybe we were lucky.

    I've been a couple of times in early May and it was fine, and not too busy either. The weather always seems unpredictable in Florida to me so I don't pay much attention to that so much anymore One of the best things about going then is that the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival is usually on, and that is well worth visiting, very special :)

    You are absolutely right, Debs. It is unpredictable, so going when you can go is the only thing to be concerned about. The flower and garden show is nice, and another reason to pick May over June. :D

    It's true about the weather, this year was completely different to what we normally have in September.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Wasn't it though? It was miserably hot and sticky with far too much rain. :(
